Top 5 Video Game…Mosaics!

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Hey everyone!  This week’s Top 5 list is all about the coolest video game themed mosaic projects.  These pieces range in all sizes and uses, but are all equally awesome.  Check them out!

I don’t think you can get much more epic than this.  It’s an entire tunnel made out of little tiles with video games like Pokemon, Donkey Kong Country, Pac Man, and Tomb Raider as it’s subjects just to name a few.  Why can’t there be any cool places like this near me?!

Donkey Kong Figure

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

This is a super detailed figure of the old-school arcade Donkey Kong made of glass beads and paint.  You also can’t go wrong with glow in the dark paint for his eyes and mouth!

Top 5 Video Game…Custom Action Figures!

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Late again!

Hey guys!  This week’s Top 5 list is the raddest in custom action figures based on video game characters!  This was a super hard list to compile because they were all so good…not to mention my love of statues and figures in general.  Check out how creative they got with these!

Okay, I admit I hold a very special place in my heart for the original arcade Donkey Kong, but how cool is this figure set?!  It even comes with a replica stage 1-1.  Amazing.

Top 5 Video Game…Post-It Note Art!

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Hey everyone!  This week’s Top 5 is all about the most creative Post-It Notes projects based on video game characters.  I don’t know why I have never thought of this.  Time to head to my local Staples and clean them out…

This is probably the most epic in scale Post-Its project I have seen, scaling the entire side of a building; and the fact that it’s an entire Donkey Kong stage is just icing on the cake.  Poor Pauline…hurry up Jump Man!
