Found On The InterNERD: Sand Castles

Alright boys and girls, InterNERD is back! Summer is officially here this month. When you are on the beach checking out chicks and trying not to get sunburn, remember that sand itself can be pretty impressive. Sand castles are a serious deal for some artists and sand castle sculpture groups. Here are the coolest, nerdiest sand castles I found on the InterNERD.

Nintendo Sand Castle. Amazing sand sculpture titled: I Am 8 Bit shows some of Nintendo’s greatest. Created by artist Guy Oliver Deveau, check out his gallery.


E.T. Sand Castle. Aw this E.T. looks depressed, maybe cause he can’t phone home.


Darwin Sand Castle. This impressive Charles Darwin depicts his most famous evolution from monkey to man. This was done by artist Jamie Wardley.


King Kong Sand Castle. Alright Darwin, how do you explain Kong now?


Monty Python Sand Castle. The English comedy troupe that paved the way for a lot of absurd comedy. This sculpture was made by artist James F. Clay.


Wallace and Gromit Sand Castle. Usually made out of clay, here Wallace and Gromit got a sand makeover.


Hellraiser Sand Castle. Pinhead is here to break up the cuteness of all these sand sculptures. This sculpture from the depths of hell was created by Helena Bangart.

Star Wars Sand Castle. These are the droids you are looking for. Great detail with this one. C-3PO’s mid section looks amazing.


Alien Vs Bender Sand Castle. Very awesome mash-up of Alien and Futurama’s Bender. Created by Carl Jara, and won 1st place at a 2010 sand sculpture competition.


So many hours you can see donated into these amazing sculptures. Makes me want to grab a shovel & a bucket and head to the beach. Do you have a nerdy sand castle you want to share.

Hey it’s InterNERD time! We did FOTI Sand Castles last summer, we are totally due for a Part 2. Keep in mind the term sand castle is thrown out there pretty loosely. These are more like sand sculptures and sand art in general. Here are the coolest, nerdiest sand castles I found on the InterNERD.

Robocop Sand Castle. The Guinness Book of World Records has Blankenberge as the biggest sand castle event ever. From that event, this Robocop against a demolished sand wall is great!


Hitchcock Sand Castle. The master film director Alfred Hitchcock is fully detailed out in all his glory. The bird is a nice touch too for this tribute.


LOTR Sand Castle. Gandalf, Frodo, and Gollum are all represented in this massive Lord Of The Rings sand sculpture.


Darth Vader Sand Castle. There is actually a bunch of Darth Vader sand art out there. I really like this one, Darth is sitting down with a giant Stormtrooper helmet.


Mario Sand Castle. Good ol’ Jumpman back at it! Love the Nintendo Gameboy in the background.


Simpsons Sand Castle. TV’s longest running animated family The Simpsons are sandified on their classic couch.


TMNT Sand Castle. Haha, this one might by the most simplistic one on the list, but I really like it. Created by Tom Greene with a handful of other college kids, you can check out this sand castle on his blog.


Mr. & Little Miss Sand Castle. The classic children books by Roger Hargreaves are all done up in a big pyramid! I remember reading a bunch of these Mr./Miss books.


Iron Man Sand Castle. The Marvel superhero is looking pretty rad made of sand. This one is pretty funny, you can see E.T. on one side and the Predator on the other!


Muppet Sand Castle. Oh yeah, this tremendous sand sculpture is made up of Sesame Street characters!


Batman Vs Hulk Sand Castle. This is like one of those many nerd arguments, who would win in a fight? Well, I would have to say as soon as Hulk gets a hit in–it’s over!

Welcome back to the InterNERD kiddos! It’s that time of year again, time to hit the beach. We have done FOTI Sand CastlesSand Castles Part 2, and now we are going back for thirds! Here are the coolest, nerdiest sand castles I found on the InterNERD.

Lego Star Wars Sand Castle. This is pretty amazing! Two great franchises combining to give us this masterpiece.


Freddy Kruger Sand Castle. You can’t even take a nap on the beach! Makes me happy some horror fans made this in the usually family-friendly medium.


The Incredibles Sand Castle. Oh yeah, Pixar’s The Incredibles done up in sand. The superhero family is looking good.


Monsters University Sand Castle.  Another Pixar inspired sand sculpture! This time the Monsters Inc crew from Monsters U.


Godzilla Sand Castle. The terror of Tokyo knows a thing or two about destroying some buildings!


Dr. Who Sand Castle. This whole Dr. Who scene is rad! Dalek, Tardis, and even Dr. Who’s robot dog K-9.


QR-Code Sand Castle. A pretty creative idea. Wonder what would happen if you scan it?


Star Trek Sand Castle. This sculpture is Spock-cially cool. Hope this castle lives long and prospers.


Jurassic Park Sand Castle. The legendary T-Rex vs a Jeep was never an even match.


Where The Wild Things Are Sand Castle. The classic children’s book has always been one of my favorites. Have to be careful to not have a wild rumpus too close to this massive sculpture!
