Vulpix and Ninetales Stacking Plushies

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

This Mage needs a dose of cute today, and since my kitten insists on being asleep and not fun at all, I turn to the internet! I found these lovely plushies and because cute must be shared, here they are!

Super cute! They’re made by BubbleRhapsodyDesign on Etsy and are designed for stacking in little heaps of adorableness. I like the Vulpix, but I think my favourite is Ninetales. I’d like to see some other stackable ‘mon too!

Jennuh from the Sprite Stitch forums stitched up this cool Kanto map (as seen in Pokémon Yellow.)

It was stitched on 18ct aida using only 4 colours, and measures around 8″ x 8″. Great job, Jennuh!

Huge Snorlax Amigurumi!

When I come across things like this on my internet travels, it makes me want to pick up crochet again. When my friend gives my hooks back, maybe I’ll attempt this awesome Snorlax!

So snuggly! If crocheting is your jam, there’s a free pattern on “Mia’s Atelier“. There are other free patterns there too, including Pokemon, anime stuff and more!

Shiny Things

Monday, September 21st, 2015

I must admit, I’m a bit of a magpie at times. I love shiny things! So, when I found an Etsy shop called Shiny Things by Miyuka, filled with geeky and nerdy shiny things, I had to share some of the items!

 

Some mini gaming pins (A SNES pad, an old GameBoy and a 3DS):

A mini TARDIS pendant:

Kanto region badges from Pokémon:

They’re laser cut from reflective acrylic and assembled by hand. And all super shiny! There are many more items in the store, such as Zelda rupees, My Little Pony elements and super hero icons, so be sure to check it out!

The rings are my favourite part! And Classic Sonic, of course. I wasn’t able to find out who created this, so if any of you readers know who it was please do let us know!

This cake is just beautiful! Gina, the creator, made this cake for her daughter’s birthday.

Another one from Gina (and also for her daughter’s birthday – what a lucky kid!), this one is just awesome. Even the stones are edible, and if you look closely you’ll see candles in the tail flame!

 

Well, dear readers, it’ll be my birthday in a couple of months…guess what kind of cake I would like? :)
