A 3D printed replica of the boss key from The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker video game. Can be customized on the back. The one shown says "Like A Boss" *I did not design this myself it is available in my shop here [link]
another custom modelled 3D papercraft based on 2D sprites. This time it's Princess Zelda, and she was actually a lot harder (to build the 3D model of) than Link because of the lack of any side or back sprites. I had to make up my own, which was the first time I've ever attempted something like that. Anyway, I'm very happy with how it came out, and I actually like her better than Link! Unsure whether to do some more complicated sprites next, or some enemies from Loz (the NES game.) Maybe it should be Ganon next...
Some horrible words from Paperkraft.net:[link] I'm sorry, but the original sprite looks like a troll. Just workin' with what I've got here. Haters gonna hate.
Sorry about the awful pic, guys! Photography is NOT my forte. Download here: [link]
About This Costume This costume started out as a way to get one of my friends to try cosplay for Anime Detour 2008. She loves Nintendo, so we figured Mario girls would be a easy first costume for her. Haha…easy…right. At first we were going to hit up some thrift stores and try to find denim overalls, but we fell in love with this quilted fabric at the store. We grabbed some blue for Mario and Luigi, and purple for Wario. Making the overall-skirts took an entire day because the pattern I grabbed was really confusing. It was my first time sewing ever and I had never used a pattern before so we had some trouble. Lots of backtracking and removing stitching needless to say. In the end, I don’t think you can tell how much we struggled with the skirts.
The three of us got our shirts at American Apparel, so they are really comfortable. We decided to do white tights and matching shoes. The shoes we are wearing are the only ones all three of us could agree on, which sucked because we could not find the right sizes. One of us was wearing shoes a size too big and one a size too small. I picked up three pairs of white gloves at Party City, and got the hats at Target. We took the ribbon that was on the hats off, and ended up using fabric markers to color the hats. That took FOREVER, but it was the best way to match our colors perfectly without mixing dye. We ironed on the white circle and little letter and we were done!
Wario had a plushie coin cube at home a well as a Yoshi, so I brought along my Goomba so we would all have something to pose with. We did a photoshoot before we went to the convention, where we had one of our guy friends join us. When he found out we were doing female versions of Mario characters, he decided to go as “rince Peach.” He made a kilt and carried around a golden golf club. When people realized what he was, it was epic. At the shoot we goofed around a ton and took some silly photos. I am happy with the results!
I made this Mario Kart cake for my son Abel's 2nd birthday. The cake is homemade vanilla bean, iced with homemade butter cream. Mario and Yoshi are toys but you could eat everything else on the cake. The star, mushroom, turtle shells, banana peel, Piranha Plant and Chain Chomp are all made out of marshmallow fondant. It's kinda hard to see but the track wraps around and up the cake. I carved it out of two tiers. The Piranha Plant was the hardest to make. It's probably my favorite though.
