THEY LOVED IT!!!!  We were thrilled that they were so happy to have it.  The first thing my 8 year old did was solve the mystery of how the characters were floating.  After that, they were just so excited to see all of the characters and what games they were from. 

The boys are 14, 9, and 8.  This was just the perfect time for them to really love it. 

Thanks for all the compliments.  The hubster is just awesome, he is my hero on a daily basis.  He is always ready to work on a project with me.  <3

Thanks everyone!  We had a great time making it.  It took about 35 hours total.  My hubster cut it out, (after drawing a 1"x1" grid on 4'x6' plywood) then he made them interlocking.  I painted it, and found some of the graphics and hubsters found the rest and made them all printable.  Then we backed them with foam. 

The boys get here tonight, and I can not WAIT for them to see it.  <3  I hope they love it.

We wanted to surprise the boys for Christmas by building an 8-bit Christmas tree. My husband made the actual tree out of 5/8 plywood and the ornaments are printed and foam-backed.

We pick up the boys tomorrow and we can't wait to see their faces when they see it! We tried to put something from everyone's favorite game on there. Recognize any of your favorites? Grin

Would I be dating myself if I admitted that the second dress is made from the same design of sheets I used to own in the 70's? My parents let me paint that same design on my closet doors, so I had the cool room.

I think I like the dress version better. Cheesy

I was going to say that I grew up with my parents having those sheets the first one is made of!  I actually have pictures of those sheets and blanket! 

I LOVE THAT DRESS!  Best use of those sheets ever, imo!  Great work!

Thank you so much for getting this post to where it needed to be.  I have looked around much more now and I think I have a good handle on where to put things.  *sorry about just posting willy nilly*  Smiley

And thank you for getting the pic in the post!  I do have a lot of costume work, and know I know were to post, so thank you.

I work a lot with community theater, and usually my budget it like $YEAH RIGHT     But, we are a creative bunch and just make things work.  This production of WOO was SUPER tight and I was stage manager.  I ended up doing costumes that no one else could or would touch.  And of course anything with my kids, because I just happen to be very persnickety like that.

NEAT!  That would make a great prop.  I bet it reads well from 40 feet away.  Texture and detail on the bind is fantastic and the eye is sure creepy!  Awesome job. Shocked

I think it would depend on how you plan on constructing them.  What pattern and style and then picking materials from there.

I found an acrylic blanket a few months ago that I thought was wool until I touched it.  I used it to make matching short pants for costumes in a show I was doing. 

I was trolling a thrift store and found it hanging with the blankets.  It was an old Amtrak blanket, and it worked like a dream.
