Update: Video Game Launch, more progress

14 Mar

I’ve made more progress on my Mario Kart 64 video game launch kit. It has been an interesting journey so far with much trial an error, but I would have to say that I have been enjoying myself. I hope that you enjoy.

What you see:
Under the top of the mushroom, a painted sky and the beautiful Princess Peaches crown.

nothing but blue skies underneath this mushroom top

What you see:
The entire mushroom
primed and painted with the proper sized white felted circles hand sewn on the jersey knit red fabric that was wrapped around stuffing and a styrofoam wreath

super mushroom!

what you see:
inside the mushroom (work in progress)
it has painted sides, a felted bottom, and the road is made of foam. and yes, those trees are legos. TM

down the ramp we go!

what you see:
a painted easter egg/yoshi’s egg. I had to buy white spray paint that specially bonds to plastic. Then I painted the green spots with a basic acrylic.

what you see:
A trophy nestled on a foam platform. I painted a wooden box black and glue the carved out foam inside the box as well as gluing the top of the box to the bottom of the box, given it that podium effect.

Video Game Launch Kit In Progress

3 Mar

So far…

I have primed and painted the bottom of my mushroom box.

Made the mushroom part of the lid with styrofoam, stuffing, and a large bag, and some fabric I had lying around.

I have sewn the top spot on already (which is changeable), but I think I’m going to have to go get more white felt so that I can make bigger white dots

Since Nap Time Co would have a website with articles and research on napping, I also wanted to include merchandise, which also added a bit of humor to the mix.
