It's a Wonderful cross stitch

The staff at DS Fanboy normally goes by the mantra, "Those who can't craft, blog," but apparently that's not always the case. Every week over at GamerTell, blogger Jenni Lada makes a game-related cross stitch based on images from various sprite databases. No one loves video game crafts more than we...

Don't throw a Rock at this glass, Man

You probably won't be seeing this beauty in any churches, but this stained-glass Mega Man is all kinds of awesome. Not only is it completely gorgeous, as stained glass usually is, but it's a creative way of pixelating the Blue Bomber. Without much more gushing, we'll just acknowledge that this was...

Super Mario Afghan

We like this new trend of people crafting game-related afghans. First it was with Tetris, and now with a scene depicting one of our favorite plumbers (Mario, obviously). This particular blanket was made by ThomcatDesigns, who have earned our complete respect for their (his? her?) mad crafting...

Rest your DS in these oldschool pouches

Since we're unabashed game enthusiasts, we appreciate any opportunity to combine our love for modern day gaming with our nostalgia for gaming of the past.

Link gets a corset, too

Many of you had some strong opinion's regarding TheVintageDoctor's Mario corset, so we only found it fitting to tell you about her new Zelda-related fashion item. This corset is very similar to the last one, only featuring Link instead of the portly plumber. Unfortunately, the image used on the...

We never thought Mario could be so sexy

Technabob described this corset best by calling it "fierce" -- we also appreciate the Project Runway reference -- and you know what? We actually like it. It's original, well-made, geeky, retro, and sexy. What's not to like? Then again, we're no Tim Gunns, and we could imagine the poor man being...

These Game Boy plushies smile back at you

Do you love your Game Boy so much that you just want to hug it to death? Then perhaps instead of a game system, you should have a plushie. These cute little handheld dolls also have sweet little facial expressions, making them all the more lovable. The best thing about KungFuCowgirl's Etsy...

Crochet-Out!! with Little Mac and Mike Tyson

We can't help but love Little Mac, the quintessential underdog. If seeing him on your virtual console isn't enough, though, how about seeing him around your neck in the winter? You may have also noticed that this scarf has Mike Tyson's big mug on it, so you won't have to settle for Mr. Dream. ...

Mama Mia! Mario gets stitched up

As we have seen on previous occasions, patchwork quilts are perfect for recreating scenes from NES-era games. However, the Mario depicted on this quilt is a little more modern, and the results are no less spectacular. Crafted by the wife of BoingBoing reader Brian (a.k.a bishmasterb), this work...

Well, now the secret's totally ruined

Did you know that there are some rogue Moblins in Hyrule, just hanging out inside sealed caves waiting to give some dude rupees? This bizarre fixation with enclosure and charity is supposed to be a secret to everybody, but now Etsy's slothbot has let the cat out of the bag Moblin out of the cave....
