Woolygeeks’ Fuzzy, Felted Video Game Characters

by Paul Strauss

I think we can all agree that biggest problem with retro video game characters is all of those jagged edges. I mean really, you could cut your hands on those sharp pixel corners. So what’s the solution? How about smoothing them out and making them fuzzy?


At least that’s what crafter Jennifer Hayes of WoolyGeeks has been doing with her needle felted video game characters. Each of her little fuzzy felt creations is lovingly handcrafted from 100% wool fiber and is so cute that I think I might hurl. I mean look at those Pac-Man ghosts. And check out Q*Bert in all of his orange-y glory!


Who wouldn’t love a menagerie of these little guys on their desk or on top of their video game cabinet? And who here among us can ever forget Slime from the NES classic, Dragon Warrior?


I always wondered why Slime was so happy. If I were Slime, I’d want to take a shower and scrub all day until it was gone. And what collection of geek craft would be complete without some Super Mario Bros. 1-Up and Super Mushrooms? As good as they look, please do not attempt to eat them. I do not believe that your stomach will enjoy the process of digesting wool. And that goes for the cat too.


Prices for Jennifer’s felted creations range from $9 to $40 and can be found over on WoolyGeeks’ Etsy shop now. And if you’re into Dungeons & Dragons, you must check out her cute and fuzzy Beholder.
