8-bit mini-hama keys from various video games

Postby Pixel Stitches » Sat Aug 21, 2010 6:48 pm

Hey everyone!

Figured I may as well share my next project I've been working on. I'm going to be making a bunch of keys from different video games and putting them on a keyring together! That way if I get stuck in one of the games in some parallel dimension (Nick Arcade), I will have every key I need to get outta there! lol. :mspac I also plan on selling them individually for people's keyrings, or as keychains themselves at my Etsy store soon. Anywhoo, take a look at which one's I've made so far:

Image

Key from the arcade version of Pac-Man!

Image

Key from Super Mario World on the SNES.

Image

Key from Monster Party on the NES.

Image

Key from Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts on the SNES.

Image

All the keys together!

They are all about regular key sized (maybe MasterLock sized for the Mario World one, to a little larger than a house key for the SG'NG one), and I plan on alternating the sizes of the other ones to come as well.

I'm going to be making many more and will post them as they are made. Zelda's Master Key, and the key from Supar Mario 2 will be made next. And if anyone's interested like I mentioned, keep an eye out at my Etsy shop! These keys should be up shortly along with some others; just click the link in my signature.

Thanks everybody, and hope you like them!

Very Cute! You could also put them in a shadow box with the words "In Case of Video Game-Parallel dimension Emergency" painted on the glass. :zelda

Yay! I appreciate your sprite choice. The keys are all interesting, and so iconic to their games, and not often depicted! Nice work.

Are they sturdy enough to hook to an actual keyring? I know nothing of hama beads or perler beads but they're cute, and I think it would be funny to attach a fake key to my keyring which has like 10+ keys already on it. lol

EDIT: WOW, definitely leaped over the first paragraph before the pictures and read the bottom paragraph. D'oh! I guess my first question still stands: how sturdy are they?

They are sturdy in the sense that they won't rip or break on you, and you can definitally put them on a keyring (like I said I was gonna do and such), but they are bendable as well. So structurally sound, just not hard or non-giving, if that makes sense. Guess it depends on your definition of sturdy :nod

I just meant sturdy in the sense that they wouldn't break from use on a keyring. I'm pretty unforgiving with my keys so I'd be afraid to stick it on there and then have it break. Also, are you still planning to make them for your Etsy? I just noticed that the post was from the end of August.

Oh yeah, they shouldn't break, like I said they're pretty flexable and all :nod

And yes I am going to still, but I've been super busy lately D: I have a convention coming up this weekend that I have been making stuff for, and a cross-country move literally a couple days after I get back from that, so I wouldn't be settled in to be able to make them for Etsy until probably the beginning of November at the earliest. I will definitally post a link in this thread once I do get them up :D

Also, I'm probably going to be making a couple of them for the convention, incase anyone's going to EXPcon in St. Augustine, FL, you'll see me there :peach
