Video Game Belt Buckles: Keep Your Pants on, Pal.
September 5th, 2008
Other than maybe one of those giant glitzy wresting belts, I can’t think of a more rockin’ thing to wear around your waist than one of these nifty retro video game belt buckles.
Handmade by artist Natalie Hutcheson (aka “HutchMe”), these metal buckles don imagery of famous icons of classic arcade games. While the Donkey Kong buckle is my personal favorite, Ms. Pac-Man comes in a close second.
Each buckle is crafted from sturdy brass-toned metal, inlaid with sparkly metallic game graphics. The designs are then coated with a durable industrial epoxy finish to keep them from scratching up as you lean against your favorite arcade machine as you pump in quarter after quarter.
Of course, if actual size pixels aren’t your thing, you can always pick up this giant-sized purple Space Invader, which can certainly be seen from a much greater distance.
So if you’re tired of looking un-cool with your plain old brass buckle, head on over to HutchMe’s Etsy store to get your hands on one of these for $18 a pop.
