Thursday, December 18th, 2014

Forum user 015Ekan and his fiancée decided to abandon the traditional gingerbread house in favour of a Mario castle.

Here it is in all its gingerbread glory, complete with stairs! Sadly, they didn’t have enough room for the flagpole. But it looks delicious anyway!

Believe it or not, this is crocheted! AuntTink used a Tunisian simple stitch and crocheted the whole thing as one piece rather than in panels. Amazing!

Gamer sand castles!

I-Am-8-Bit-Video-Game-Sand-Sculpture

I’ve always been kind of freaked out by the amazing things that people can do with sand. Everything I’ve ever tried to make completely fell apart. Behold the above sand sculpture (since it’s not really a castle.) I stumbled upon this amazing thing online. global geek news says, “This work of art appears to be called ‘I am 8-bit’ and it was created by Guy-Olivier Deveau who created it for the Parskville Canadian Open.  He did an amazing job!”

I wondered what else I could find, and came up with these:

I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!

Peach mural in Beercade bathroom

Peach seems pretty shocked to see someone using the bathroom. So, I had to do a bit of digging to figure out where this is. Apparently, it’s at a pretty amazing sounding place: Beercade, in Omaha, Nebraska. It’s an arcade combined with a bar that serves craft beer. Who wants to go visit?

This awesome lamp, for sale on Etsy by PugsnLegos, is really made of Legos. Here is some more info:

“This is a Mario Brothers themed Lego light that can also be used to hold your keys, wallet, sunglasses, whatever. The lights are LEDs and they are operated by remote control. Via the remote you can turn the light on and off, change the color, turn the brightness up or down, and the lights have some color changing effects as well.

The Lego tower is approximately 27.5″ tall, and 10″ square at the base. It weighs approximately 10 pounds.”

The price was $2,200, but they’ve dropped it down to $1,200.
