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!

“Golden Goddesses” Bracelet

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

Forum member KittensConsole made this very pretty bead bracelet featuring a Triforce pattern.

The really nice thing is that the Triforces are 24K gold plated beads, which gives it quite a special look. You can buy this and some other lovely jewellery from KittensConsole’s Etsy store.

I was in the middle of a heavy procrastination session when I stumbled upon these beauties by Arnixia:

The colours are amazing and the “screens” so crisp and clear. Who wouldn’t want to snooze on one of these?

Multi-Layer Video Game Perler Beads

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Danny Yama¬†makes a unique style of perler bead characters… I really like the multiple layers to give the characters some thickness and depth. He has many more examples on his flickr page but I’ve chosen to include my favorites of megaman and link. I think the best part about making them three layers thick is that they stand up all by themselves.

Zelda Triforce Stained Glass Window

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Judy Mascolo made this amazing stained glass window of the triforce from zelda. I’m including a couple more photos of Judy’s work, but it doesn’t do her collection justice. there are INSANE amounts of awesome video game / geeky stained glass works on her flickr site and you must go check them out!

Here we have a plant from plants and zombies as well as mario and yoshi.

my jealousy of people who know how to do stained glass has not waned… seriously, I WANT these.
