A few more retro gaming items I've picked up for my place.

A few weeks back I posted about wanting to decorate my new house with characters from old Nintendo games. Well I've picked up a few more things and thought I would share:

This is another painting my brother did, with acrylic on canvas. I had mentioned I was debating a couple different Link poses that I liked, but I actually ended up having him do this one rather than the other ones I was debating.

These are some Adventures of Lolo coasters I picked up from Etsy. (Specifically this seller). They're made of perler beads and have cork attached to the back. $12 shipped and I'm very happy with them!

This is a blanket (well actually a Snuggie) that I found in one of the big containers I kept under my bed. I totally forgot I had it, I got it for Christmas a few years back but never really used it. But it fits in real well with my current motif, so I'll keep it out through the winter.


I'm still going to have my brother do a few more pictures for me, I'll post them when they're finished. I'm leaning towards a Metroid for my next picture, but not sure yet.

Nice. I wish I could put that kind of stuff up at my house. I shouldn't complain though I have all my consoles in games in the living room.
OMG Lolo. That game was great, and it always scared the crap out of me when I died to one of those medusa guys (hey, I was like 8). I never got to play 2 and 3 though...
@Indifference - Thanks. There are some nice benefits to living alone :-)

@AkariK - Funny you should say that, I had the EXACT same problem. Both the Medusa's and Don Medusa's scared the hell out of me when I would get hit by them. I actually still jump a little bit today, probably partly because it's just been engrained in me. But it's just scary to take a step, think your safe, and then hear that "whoosh" sound and all of a sudden you're toast.

I own 1 and 2 on Wii Virtual Console, I'd buy 3 if they ever put it on there. I honestly don't think I ever beat 3, it was very very difficult.
Digging the Lolo coasters. May have to pick some up.
Brother did another amazing job on that Link. We will see pics of the house once you have everything up right?
@Shipwreck - Thanks, when I stumbled on them on Etsy I had to buy 'em!

@4thHorseman - Yeah, I can post a few pics when it's all done. And I'll pass your compliments on to my brother, thanks!
Cool stuff. That Link painting is very nice. Can't wait to see what he does next. I was able to do 2 more pixel paintings.
Shredder and Castlevania SOTN.

^Both extremely awesome. I may have my brother try and do an Alucard SotN one for me!
