Pole Position Quilt: Prepare to Qualify

Pole Position Quilt: Prepare to Qualify
Back in the day, Pole Position was one of my all-time favorite arcade games. Not only was it the first full-color POV racing game, it had some of the most groundbreaking graphics in its time. With today’s photorealistic racing games like the Gran Turismo and PGR series, it’s amazing how far we’ve come.

Pop Art Prints for Retro Geeks

Pop Art Prints for Retro Geeks
Do you like tiny art with vintage robot and video game themes? If you do, please enjoy the pop arty, old-timey stylings of Singapore artist JoE, aka Etsy seller monstergallery. These fun prints measure a wee 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and are available in limited editions of 100 pieces. I love the fadey-scratchy finish on these pieces and the limited color palette.

Weighted Companion Cube Cake is Not a Lie

Weighted Companion Cube Cake is Not a Lie
If you’re like me, you probably killed more than a few weekends back in the Fall playing Portal. As you probably know by now, the cake promised as the reward for completing all the puzzles was a big fat lie.

All Your Base Are Belong to This Rubber Stamp

All Your Base Are Belong to This Rubber Stamp
For those of you out there who never played the 1989 Japanese game Zero Wing, “All your base are belong to us” might not mean anything (not like it made much sense even if you did play it). Then again, the awesomely bad Engrish phrase has permeated geek culture for quite some time now, so if you’re not familiar with it by now, you’ve been living under a rock for the last 7 years.

Mario Corset is a Fierce Hot Tranny Mess

Mario Corset is a Fierce Hot Tranny Mess
Ok, this has got to be the most wacky Nintendo-inspired item I’ve seen in a long time ever. Apparently somebody out there with a serious Mario fetish has decided to create a corset using his likeness.

Gameboy Plush Toys have Plenty of Personality

Gameboy Plush Toys have Plenty of Personality
Check out these fun Gameboy plush toys I came across in my recent Web travels. Featuring a whimsical, cartoony take on the classic hand-held gaming system, they’re the perfect gift for the Nintendo Fanboy or Fangirl in your life. Created by Wisconsin crafter KungFuCowgirl, each of the squishy game systems has its own unique personality, thanks to the slight variations in each handmade Gameboy. They measure in at just a wee-bit bigger than an original Gameboy and come in red, yellow, green, pink or teal.

Plush Retro Macintosh Computer

Plush Retro Macintosh Computer
Look at this fun squeezy Mac plush toy, made by talented crafter Maitreya over at craftlog. The idea was borne out of a need for a baby shower gift for a computer scientist and bioinformaticist. Being a nostalgic girl and Apple fan, the idea to make this old school design came naturally to her. Bonus: this was a patternless, freestyle creation.

USB Flash Memory Offers Fuzzy, Buggy Storage

USB Flash Memory Offers Fuzzy, Buggy Storage
USB memory sticks are a dime a dozen these days, so you’ve really got to stand out from the crowd if you want to get noticed. These soft, fuzzy critters will definitely latch on to your digital memories in a way you won’t soon forget. Designed by artist Nifer Fahrion of NifNaks, these invertebrate USB drives are handmade using wool felting techniques.

Pac-Man Gets Stuffed

Pac-Man Gets Stuffed
Who says arcade cabinets need to be made out of wood and metal? Why can’t they be soft and squishy? That’s what this crafter thought when she created this fun plush Pac-Man machine. Created by Lady Harvatine, the stuffed arcade machine captures the spirit of some of my fondest arcade memories.

Super Mario is Super Shadowbox Art

Super Mario is Super Shadowbox Art
I think some of us in the world would be likely to 1) get frustrated and/or 2) discard a broken handheld electronic game pretty quickly if we couldn’t fix it. Or is it just me? Whatever the answer is, I know the resourceful Josh Burker would bust a different move.

Super Mario Hidden Quilt Level Scores Extra Points

Super Mario Hidden Quilt Level Scores Extra Points
If you’ve got a serious Mario addiction, you might just have to break open your piggy bank for this. This fun quilt features the likenesses of Mario and his foes in the context of the NES platformer that really put the little Italian plumber on the map. It looks like Mario just hopped out of his green drain pipe, only to have to face a tough decision.
