1  Portal Warning Sign Paintings in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Penguinotic on: December 20, 2009 11:20:20 PM
I've been obsessed with the game Portal ever since I laid eyes on it. And for awhile I've been looking for something to fill the empty space in my hallway wall.

So I decided to paint the warning symbols from the game on these lovely 8x10 canvases! Michael's had a 10 pack on sale for 20 dollars! Then with the 40% off coupon, who could pass that deal?

Now anyone who walks down my hallway knows the dangers that await them. And there will be cake. O.o





Made with simple acrylic paint. lined up it's a little over 40 inches wide! I'm in love with it! Now all I need is a companion cube.

By the gods! MissplacedHippie has out done herself this time! I feel she knows me better than I know myself! Look at this beautiful package..


ooh! Underneath everything is a handy fold-up shopping bag! Fits in my pocket! Now for the close-ups.

Some stunning stationery. Hand-stamped and store bought. Hello Kitty and Chococat Pez dispensers, of which my boyfriend has already tried to steal!

Some little debbie snacks (already eaten!), Scrabble fridge magnets (how did she know?) a knitting needle bracelet, penguin cookie cutter (!!), 2 penguin figurines, 3 Le Pens, Smart Woman stickers, Coconut scented matches, an origami frog, and (already being chewed by the Kitties) a crocheted turtle with organic catnip!

Photos of her puppy, an awesome giraffe, and some salamanders! Pamphlets of all the historic attractions and knitted arm warmers with a matching Caliometry!
Look at my excitement!


My eldest cat, Beabie, couldn't help but tear into the turtle! She also gave me a cup from her college! It's photo has been lost, oddly.

Thank you so much, Missplacedhippie! I can't wait to start work on package 2!

3  Another Nintendo pillow! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Penguinotic on: January 22, 2008 02:44:03 PM
I LOVED Viciousedge's nintendo pillow (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=221678.0)! My boyfriend saw this and begged me to make him one.
So I did!
This was my weekend project and I think it turned out wonderfully! I have to thank ViciousEdge for her idea! They're super comfy and even match the colors in my bedroom!
Here they are (there's actually 2 but only 1 is pictured)


Thanks for lookin' and please check out ViciousEdge's version.. her pillow is the inspiration!

4  Zombies Ate My Wall! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Penguinotic on: January 06, 2008 09:08:49 AM
I've finally decided to paint my bedroom. But first I wanted some art on the walls. I needed something a bit unisex for my SO and myself.
Well, since we have a slight obsession with Resident Evil and zombies... what better way to decorate than with the undead!

So I scoured the internet for a good zombie picture and found this guy - http://zombiedollars.nikholmes.com/zombie-gallery01.html  (4th row; last column)
And with a little bit of experimenting and some free time I came up with this!


And then a close up of Mr. ZombieFace

I'm in love with it! I'll post pictures once the rest of the room is complete!

Then there's this wonderfully hand-painted Dragonair shirt! She did such a wonderful job on this! Look at the hearts! So cute..


Last but not least is an ADORABLE Psyduck pillow. Perfect for those headachy days Wink


I just love everything! Thank you so much, Star69! It was a wonderful first swap!

6  Pokeball Ornaments! in Winter Holidays by Penguinotic on: December 02, 2007 11:22:15 AM
Wow, so my friends and I are more nerdy than I thought.
We were discussing Christmas when my friend decided that I should paint him some Pokemon ornaments.
So here are the Pokeball ornaments! All 15 pokeballs, too!


From left to right:
Dive Ball
Timer Ball
Master Ball
Luxury Ball
Great Ball

Quick Ball
Repeat Ball
Net Ball
Ultra Ball
Nest Ball

Finally we close with the
Dusk Ball
Safari Ball
Heal Ball
Poke Ball
and the Premier Ball

They're only about 2 inches tall. I wish I would have given myself more time to make these. There's so many things I could have done better! Oh well. I still like them and so does my friend. That's all that matters!

Penta - Yume Penguin Monogatari (find an emulation of this nes game! It's brilliant!)

9  Cactuars on my head! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Penguinotic on: November 07, 2007 08:41:07 PM
So, i was shopping online for hats when I remembered genkigang.com.
I've always loved her hats. Anytime I found one I wanted, I would just make it!
So here's my Cactuar hat. I made a couple of adjustments and I just love him!
What do you think?


I'm on vacation so excuse my sleepy look. Vacation = no makeup!
I'm starting a Jigglypuff hat for my Pokemon swap partner tomorrow. I hope it will be cute as well.

10  Mini top hat for Rocky Horror in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Penguinotic on: October 27, 2007 05:12:29 PM
Well, tonight I'm going to see a live performance of Rocky Horror Picture Show. I didn't have enough money to make a costume but I knew I needed something odd to wear.
What better than a mini-top hat!

Now, I'm obsessed with peacock feathers (my grandmother has 2 on her farm so i get free feathers by the truck-load) and I knew my hat HAD to have them on there.

For using stuff around my house to make this, I'm pretty proud.







And a close up in case my poor pictures don't show up well. (I don't have a camera so I have to use my iMac)
You can tell i LOVE green...

Thanks for lookin'! I'm off to the show!
