The Junk Showcase

Sometimes staring at our televisions for countless hours during the week is not enough to sate our video game fixes. Many gamers also feel the need to infuse our lives with useless, game-themed junk. Whether the purpose of collecting said junk is to sprinkle a little bit of nerdcore into the homestead or to provide us with the means to boast our gamer identities, the fact remains that we are often tempted to waste our money on these delightful crafts.

I decided to list a few of my favorite game-related pieces from the site I picked Etsy because the things there are rare and often one-of-a-kind, which makes them all the more desirable (...and expensive). Feel free to drool at these, add your own favorites from the crevices of the interweb, or tell me that my list sucks and I have horrible taste. Also, all of the stuff below was still available at the time I posted this, so I apologize in advance to all you impulse buyers :P

And now, in no particular order....

1. LoZ Stained-Glass Mosaic

I don't have $250 to burn, but you can bet that if I did, this baby would be up on my wall in a second.

2. Punch-Out Shoes

Okay, so these are fugly and definitely not worth $45. I wanted to include them in this post, though, because there are just not enough video game shoes in the world. At least the maker's heart was in the right place.

3. Crochet Hat

I want this hat. I want this hat badly. I definitely can't justify spending $40 on amy hat, though, let alone one that will probably itch like a bastard. The scarf is for sale too, but I'm not a fan. If anything, I'd prefer this (cough$150$cough) scarf.

4. Ouendan Shirt

An Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan shirt. Enough said.

5. Secret of Mana Magnets

Perler bead magnets are no scarcity on Etsy, but these get special props because they're from one of the best games to ever grace the SNES, Secret of Mana. It's not often that you see Secret of Mana merch, so it deserves special attention.

6. Nintendo Controller Earrings

Okay, so these would just look tacky on an actual person... but that doesn't change the fact that they're kind of cute :). Did I mention that I'm a nostalgia whore?

7. Dr. Mario Buttons

I was never the type of person to adorn my bag with buttons, but if I was, it would have been in these. I mean, just look at the cute, wittle yellow virus! Awwww!

Well that's it. Thanks to those of you who got this far :). I hope your eyes stop bleeding soon.
