I don’t know if any of you heard, but there’s an itty bitty low-budget movie about some sort of winged superhero that just hit theaters this week, and maybe at least a few of you managed to go and see it.
I can’t decide if these Pac-Man skull caps are awesome or just weird. Let’s just go with awesomely weird. The colorful ghosts of video games past make yet another appearance, this time as crocheted hats.

Crafter Artoo1121 of Geek Central Station has really gone the extra mile with this amazingly detailed little Link.
Instructables contributors never cease to amaze me with the wonders they conceptualize and create. We may have reached the craftastic zenith with these DIY stuffed animal headphones. I myself have never felt the urge for my ears to cuddle up with my headphones, but maybe I’m missing out.
If you don’t happen to have enough room for one of those 22-foot tall styrofoam robots to defend the homestead, that’s okay. Thanks to the wild and wonderful creations of robot insect builder TinyMinds, you can get your hands on some little robots which should do the trick just as well.
Do you remember the classic video game Arkanoid? Some people do, and rather fondly, as evidenced by this elaborate cross stitched homage to it.
I’m not sure what’s up with the Philip K. Dick quote on there but I’m sure there’s a good reason for it.
Actually, despite their size, these styrofoam robots look pretty docile. In fact, you could probably take down an attacking Styrobot with a well-placed karate chop or two.

Awwww. What could be more adorable than these plush little versions of classic Nintendo characters?

Get Grandma to work on this hand-knitted Transformers washcloth and you can wipe your face with that lovable logo each night before bed.
You can get the pattern here, although since I don’t understand knitting terminology it might as well be in Japanese, which as we know I also don’t understand too well.
When I think of Origami, I usually think of little paper swans, or maybe the unicorn that Edward James Olmos made in Blade Runner. But who says that video games can’t get in on the paper foldin’ action?
I was buzzing about over on the wonderful world of Etsy today, when I came across these absolutely awesome plush versions of popular portable electronic gadgets. French textile artist Kmila Rodz handcrafts these super special soft systems using felt, needle and thread, with a just a dash of love thrown in.

Planning a geeky wedding? Here’s a tip for you- create super-detailed, individualized video game avatar name cards for each guests.
