I love all the awesome shrinky-dink stuff I've seen on here, so as an early Christmas gift to myself I bought some, and a giant set of permanent markers. So far I've made mostly earrings for myself, some keychains for my hubby, and some earrings for my sis for Christmas. They're mostly videogame themed, hence the thread title.
Click the thumbnail to view fullsize image:

From left to right and top to bottom they are:
Horde symbol post earrings for sis, rabbite from Secret of Mana post earrings for sis, Aperture Science logo from Portal, Half Life 2 Logo, Team Fortress 2 Logo, Icon from Portal, Kuro from Katamari Damacy, Undine from Secret of Mana, Horde symbol from WoW, The Cheat from Homestarrunner.com, Portals from Portal, Rebel alliance and Empire logos from Star Wars, random hoops that I fused, Koi from random googled image, and a cake icon from Portal.
Whew...
I apologize for the crowded picture, my camera doesn't do close ups at all, so I figured I'd squeeze them all in there. Most of the earrings are around 1-2" tall. Any questions or comments are appreciated, and thanks for making it to the bottom of this post, hehe.

New Stuff!
Got a new Camera for Christmas so I added a few new things that I've made:
Virus Stud earrings from Dr. Mario:

Katamari Pendant and Earring set (I Love Katamari!):

People who take time to be alone usually have depth, originality, and quiet reserve.

I'm not a gamer (the only ones I like are Mario lol) but, these came out awsome.  You did a really good job.

OH my gosh these are just amazing!  I have been stressing about what I can give hubby as stocking stuffers and these are just the ticket!  He is such a gamer dork (ok, ok, so am i!).  Something like this would be perfect, thank you for the inspiration!

Thanks everyone! I have a penchant for big dangly earrings so when I saw another post with a shrinky Star Wars necklace I just had to make them in earring form, was first planning on two Rebel symbols, but I threw coordination to the wind and went with one of each, lol. I got some of the images off Wikipedia, but you can always google ____ logo and have a bazillion images come up. And if anyone wants me to post the pictures I used I can do that too!
The only thing I regret is not doing this sooner, now I can't wait to go out somewhere so I can wear my nifty earrings! I just keep coming up with new ideas!
Thanks for all the kind words guys, and have fun shrinky-dinking!

!!!  I absolutely NEED those portal earrings.  I gotta get my hands on some shrinky-dink!  The Aperture Sciecne & HL2 keychains rock everything, too.  Mmm, HL2... that reminds me, I need to get back to episode 1.  Anyway, this just reminded me... remember that little stencil on the floor at the end of the companion cube level?  By the incenirator?  Yeah, the one with the broken heart.  I need to make a stencil of that one on a shirt... <3 companion cube!!
