Ace Attorney Items

Friday, May 30th, 2014

The Ace Attorney series is awesome. Enough said. But I can’t make a post out of that, so let me show you some Ace Attorney related items that I discovered today!

This is the Attorney’s Badge, that Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice wear to prove that they are attorneys.

The Prosecutor’s Badge, which Miles Edgeworth keeps in his pocket.

And these are Magatama, worn by the Fey clan. Maya Fey gave a green one to Phoenix, who later used it in his investigations.

All these items are handmade by the ladies at the Etsy store AEnyOtherName and would make great cosplay accessories!

Crash Bandicoot Mini Quilt

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Sprite Stitch’s own EveningEmma made this cool mini quilt, featuring Crash Bandicoot.

Emma says she had a lot of fun making this mini quilt, which is about 19.5″ x 19.5″. She also embroidered Crash in the middle.

An interesting project, and nicely done!

Poke-Cubes

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

We see a lot of Pokemon around Sprite Stitch, crafted in all sorts of unique ways. I’m not sure I’ve seen anything quite like these before! They’re called “Poke-cubes” and are knitted cube-shaped plushies, all handmade by Lorna of P1X3LKnitting.

These little guys, along with a whole bunch of other Poke-cubes (including an Onix, which gets auto+1 from me) and some other very nice knitted items are all on sale in the P1X3LKnitting Etsy store – go check it out!

Cool Old School Cross Stitched Pillow

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

One of my rules for life is that you can never have too many pillows (or as we call them here in the UK, cushions). Cross stitched ones are the best, because you can find some really great design ideas, like this one!

So many different classic icons, it’s almost like a sampler! I like the part with the Black Mage. :)

The Props Shop

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Etsy is a great source of items, supplies and inspiration too. I stumbled upon The Props Shop while scrolling through my Etsy activity feed and found some really awesome pieces in the store!

This set of three transforming masks from Majora’s Mask are fantastic! The shop has a lot of Zelda items; masks, weapons, rupees and this pretty great Deku Shield:

There’s also other cool items in the shop, like Palutena’s Bow from Kid Icarus, which you can either use as the bow or as the two swords:

And one of my favourite items, a Helix Fossil:

The artist uses all sorts of materials to create her items, like wood, foam, plastic and more! You can find these items and other awesomeness in the Etsy store (link below) – definitely worth checking out!

Pokemon Flowerpots

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

It’s always amazing to me how some people find new ways to craft popular characters. These Pokemon flowerpots are a great example!

This Ivysaur was made by applying paper mache to a papercraft model.

This Oddish pot is made from plaster and looks quite unusual!

And this second Ivysaur pot was made using the same steps as the one above, but the maker added air drying clay to it to give it a smoother look. It’s very effective! :)

If you’d like to make your own pots, or even just solid models, here is a link to the Ivysaur instructable (please note, the author called it a Bulbasaur Pot because they thought Ivysaur might be less well-known!)
