If you haven’t ever heard of crochet now is the time to get educated. A quick google for crochet will give you an astounding variety of of material from hats to handbags. Well it’s time to add another category to that list.
I shot the creator, Rin, an email about the dolls:
They’re crocheted with mercerized cotton and for now are OOAKs (one of a kind) as they were customized for a buyer. They’re around 4 inches in height!

GoNintendo reader Nebula427 created this Metroid sugar cookie mosaic for a Halloween food contest at work. Unfortunately for Nebula 427 it didn’t win, but now he/she can aspire to internet fame! I wonder what you do with a cookie like that?
I’d hate to eat it.Read More
Debbie Goard of http://debbiedoescakes.net/ has recently completed a stunning groom’s cake in the shape of Samus’ helmet. I took the time to contact her about it and she was kind enough to let us know how it was made.
The cake was a mint chip cake hand carved from round cakes ,
stacked , and iced in buttercream and then covered in fondant. The
metallic parts were made of belgian modelling chocolate and painted
with silver highlighter dust. The entire cake was airbrushed to add
color and dimension to the metallic parts as well. The cake was a
surprise for the Groom, he and the bride are huge fans of the game.
Best wishes to the bride and groom. You can see more of Debbie’s stunning cakes on her flickr channel
Update: The bride took the time to comment about the cake, you can see what the inside looks like as well as view more about what specifically the cake was sculpted from by visiting her blog: Judyonthenet.Read More
Samus by Luís Melo
Artist’s Description: When I drew this picture I wanted to capture the old simple feel of the 8-bit game. It was nothing more than dark corridors, getting deeper and deeper, with strange colorful blobs of pixels as enemies. Your imagination did the rest.
I tried do do something in-between the very simple color and design of the original and what you can see today (I loosely referenced Samus’ suit from a couple of Metroid Prime pics), in search of something that isn’t an over-design of the concept and would still retain some of the crudeness of the 8-bit original impression I got as a kid.
