Whoever made these NES pillowcases, bed sheet and comforter should make himself known. Preferably on Etsy, with a thousand more of these ready to be sold.
Awesome shield by the way. Perhaps a Paladin retires in this bed.
Everybody can stop with the geek-inspired crochet projects now. The contest is over and MageAkyla of Crafster has won the whole thing with this brilliant crochet Tom Servo from MST3k.
The only way this project could be any better is if it were bigger, or if there were thousands of crochet Tom Servos, or if MST3k was back on the air.
deviantARTist GlassCamel has found a way to defeat the Decepticons once and for all: render them as completely helpless (and cute) plushies. Felt has really got to be the least threatening fabric in the world. You just can’t hurt anything if you’re made of felt.
BioShock 2 doesn’t even exist yet and already the artisans of the world are hard at work on the sequel to 2K’s alternate-history title. A doll fashioned to look like one of the game’s Big Daddy characters was shown in the sequel’s beautiful (and creepy) trailer, and now that same doll has been recreated in loving detail.
There’s just something about the iconic Game Boy that makes people want to give it a face, thus turning the system into a lovable character. The latest examples may not be quite as expressive as the last personable Game Boy plushies seen around these parts, but they do have something going for them: legs.
So let’s say you just happen to have a lot of vinyl lying around. Do you: a) re-upholster your car in a fit of retro fever, b) create some fetish wear, or c) stitch together a few giant Atari cartridges?
Zack Snyder’s take on Watchmen may have suffered mixed reviews from fans and newbies alike at the box office, but Alan Moore’s seminal characters are certainly scoring big with one subset of the population: crafty types are embracing Watchmen‘s heroes anew… and in interesting ways.
Mama is about to become Cornering-A-Market Mama with yet another branch of what is becoming a serious franchise: Crafting Mama is set to join Gardening Mama and Cooking Mama in the triple crown of simulation mini-games.
We’ve already featured a sample of crafter punzie’s products before, a set of Pac-Man ghost pillows. Now she’s creating stuff based on Super Mario games, like a Baby Mario baby blanket or a Shooting Star baby blanket.
Sprites are popular projects among crafters, especially those who work with Perler beads, so there are always lots of examples of sprite art around. That said, it’s rare to find sets with which you can recreate entire mini scenes of games, but you can with these Super Mario World sprites!
…and maybe ever. What makes this particular example of Star Wars amigurumi better than, say, crochet slave Leia or an adorable Chewbacca? Buttons and fittings. Oh, not just the little shiny button eyes–those are common, and this R2D2 has his own.
There are days when you can’t help but think, y’know, maybe it’s time to take down the action figures and buy a tasteful cabinet to house all the gaming gear. Maybe get some window treatments and experience a coming of age in design.
