Old school video titans go head to head as Pac-Man invades Mario Bros. world! It just…keeps….going! Check out the fun after the jump.
Who doesn’t love a walk down memory lane – especially with these static portraits of old video game characters. See the likes of Mega-Man, Mario, Luigi, Samus, link, and more. You can thank Etsy shop owner Andrew Heath for these stunning minimal beauties. See all the stunners and gunners after the break:
What the what? Yep – you’re looking at that correctly, that’s a 3D replica of the start screen for Super Mario Brothers. Twitter user BitBlt_Korry created this masterpiece by using 14,000 painted toothpicks. The project cost him a total $84, which is a lot of money going to small sticks. But we’d say say it was money worth spent, and so will you after you see the video. Check it out after the break:
Every now and again we come across an artist who creates awesome geek stuff, just like these light boxes imagined and built by Christina over at Burnt Pixels. The boxes are made of laser-cut MDF, which is painted beautifully to match the box theme. During the day the box is super cute, but when the lights are out and you place a flameless tea light candle (included) underneath, it lights up! I don’t know about you, but I feel like I need one by my bedside, and maybe even one on my fireplace mantle. Check out more of Christina’s work after the break.
Okay – this is not an article on “how” to get a geek tattoo. This is more of an article about the millions of people who are brave enough to get a geek tattoo. I mean, let’s face it – you have to have brass balls to get a geek tattoo. It’s not your typical “whoops, I did that in college after a drunken night of LARPing” – well, maybe it is. My point being, that you better really LOVE that geek property, because guess what – IT’S GOING TO BE THERE FOREVER!
(You just heard the “warp-warp-warp” sound effect in your head, didn’t you?)
