    Ouch!

    Thankfully, she thought it was the best idea I've ever had on what to do with the house and she offered to help me sort beads and make the brick patterns.

    Nice!

    Isn't she the same one who wouldn't let you put up those miniatures (well, the smaller scenes and characters) anywhere in the house?

    Yeah, that's her. But this is going in Jonah's room, so that makes it ok.

    Hmm... I guess I'll contribute. Warioware cosplay!

    1104203.jpg

    I made the entirety of my costume (Mona), and did my sister's dress as well (Ashley). This was for Anime North this year.

    I'm particularly happy with the guitar and the hat.

    (Since you can't really see the hat clearly: http://images.cosplay.com/photos/11/1104190.jpg )

    Well, I finished Mario/Luigi coasters like the ones ryuprecht linked to, and also made a coaster of Sonic's head, although my colors are a bit off. Anyway, this shit takes forever and my back hurts. But, I'm satisfied. :D

    Any other suggestions for who I should make coasters out of next?

    The bad part is, I don't know what to do with them. They look stupid in my office at work, and my wife doesn't want me putting them up around the house ("that would look cool...if we were 20 and in college still.")

    The Mario, pipe and megaman were taken from pictures other people did before. I practiced with them. The Black Mage, Chrono and metroid were my own, taken from screen grabs and sprite picts. I had to redo some colors on my own, especially with Chrono.

    Clearly you should create the entire cast of FFVI, put them all in a heavily padded UPS box and then send them all to me. I'll give them a loving home. :P

    And that book is brillant Jeffe. I'm seriously considering asking you for the files so I can create a copy to give to some friends who are expecting a baby in Sept.

    Nice idea, but a day late and a dollar short. My newest plan was concocted last night. I bought 40,000 more beads and I mapped out a plan to fill a wall in my 4 year old's room with a scene from Super Mario Brothers.

    Maybe I'll post pictures as it comes together.

    I'd have withdrawn my request anyways after reading that. You must do this and your child must breed.

    Actually you kinda inspired me to do my own FF character colleciton. The only thing I'm dreading is finding all the correct colors for the entire cast of FFIV/VI. That and the whole money thing. :P

    Currently I have:

    Mario
    Luigi
    Sonic (head)
    A Skull (that I practiced on)
    Pac-Man
    "Scared" Pac-Man Ghost (is that what you call it? I've never known.)

    I'll be adding:
    Link
    Octorok
    And maybe a scaled-down, shameless rip of your Megaman

    Both my Pac-Man and Ghost were from memory...although it's not like Pac-Man is hard. To do the others I found sprites, blew them up a few hundred percent and copied them pixel-by-pixel.

    Here's some bathroom stuff. I did this for a client who bought some high tech shower with a radio, phone, massage, etc, etc. She wanted the sides covered in stone but the shower guy said she would still need to have a way for a repair guy to get into the back and fix all the gizmos should they go wrong. This was my solution. The gaps when closed are just big enough for a razor blade to fit in. It's held shut with magnets. I did the carpentry for this too. The whole "door" weighed about eighty pounds.

    Yes,... yes, I agree. It's totally unfair that sober you gets into trouble for things that drunk you did.

    While not quite as artsy as what you all have made I still love this thing:
    img1349smcsportsday2006se6.jpg
    img1314smcsportsday2006zp0.jpg
    img1407fsmcsportsday200hk0.jpg

    It's a compressed Air Powered Water Balloon Cannon we built for a contest at work. Last time we fired it we shot a water ballon almost 200 Yards. The best part is people were supposed to try and catch the things. We calculated the muzzle velocity at 80 M.P.H. not very many were caught. Your tax dollars at work folks. Maybe i can dig up some sets I built while i worked in theatre or I can post pictures of my robots.

    It was considerably more than $50 in parts.

    Update:

    Over the past three days I've put 5 hours into the Mario project. Yesterday I spent 4 hours making 6 brick patters for the bottom of the "level". For those keeping count, that was just under 2,500 beads for the start...

    The original SMB uses 16 bricks per screen, or 6,700 beads for the floor alone.

    I have also made a Mario and two Hammer Bros. It's coming together nicely!

    I love the yellow emoticon in the bottom right corner.

    Hell, I love all of your yellow emoticons. I'd buy those for $10 each.

    I'd love to use the eye roll-y one as a coaster.

    My comfy although overstuffed and slightly misshapen 1 Up Pillow:

    1UpPillow.jpg

    It was my first attempt, so I have a feeling that further attempts would turn out better (I still want to make a red mushroom and a question mark block). It's held up nicely for almost a year now.

    My girlfriend and I are also churning out a bunch of wands that we made out of dowel rods, sculpey and paint so that we can sell them at the Harry Potter festival. :^:

    Oh, and I am definitely going to make some coasters.

    There's a whole set of emoticons to match that one

    So where do you find pegs (or beads, or whatever) of the right colour? Especially for NES characters, if you go with the wrong blue or red, it'll show.

    Sorry for the quality of the image (in angle, lighting, and amount of Mario visible.) This was just before I had to pack up my dorm room, and only had my phone's camera on hand. I needed to document all the fun stuff, as it was time to go for the summer.
    Oh, it's made of floppy disks, hanging from a green PVC pipe.

    Hmm, you also can't tell in there, but in the pile of crap on the desk is this Bantha. I was obsessed with Star Wars Galaxies, and there's an item that looks just like this. (This was an even older cameraphone...)

    I've been playing with stonecarving occasionally, here's a mostly-done one. It was fun because feet are really handy for holding things while you carve.
