Are you a gambling sort of gal (or man)?? Wanna make a bet with me? ;D If I win, you owe me a cooookieeee…!!
How many of you thought Bowser wasn’t real??? If you say he is merely fiction….then bust out the bakeware, fools!
This got me to thinking, though…what other super-amazing-awesome-Nintendork items have been created?? Being a die-hard Nintendo fanatic, I decided to take to the interwebs to discover what possibilities floated about the place!! I not only found some awe-inspiring art works, I also found some kick@$$ bloggers to follow!!
Here’s just a few of the retro-love goodies that I found:
Ooooooh, yeeesss….these stuffed toys of awesome are creations of the amazing human being, Steph, AKA: nerdJERK. Not only does she have some pretty stellar items — (she also has an Etsy shop! Yay!) — but she is, & I quote, “a genuine Human Awesomeness Advocate!” What amazing creations from such an amazing person!
Not only is this sweater vest TOTALLY RAD, but it’s available as a FREE pattern!! I’m not one for knitting, so maybe one of you fine folk could make me one instead of a cookie (that you totally owe me!) ;D Hehe! I found this gem down at the blog of Happy Seamstress, a group of very talented (& quite amusing) ladies! They’ve hosted Nintendo themed craft contests before — I look forward to possibly entering in the future!! xD
Quite possibly one of the absolute coolest up-cycles I have ever come across, this duck Hunt lamp made from an old Duck Hunt cartridge & Nintendo Zapper is SO AMAZING I want to go out & make one of my very own right now!!! The artist is ___ of Estranged Illusions, & you can find their post about this lamp on their DeviantArt page.
I have loads of cartidges, most still usable, but a few not working….at the very least I’ll hit up the flea market (Trader’s Village, y’all!) & grab some extra cartridges & a zapper to do this myself. Just think of the many possibilities!! [dies of joy]
I’m going to go back to drooling over all these super finds, now..! Do any of you know of any other awesome Nintendo themed crafts I should check out??
