I had originally intended to simply post this in my own journal, but a friend of mine was all, like: "OMG, you have to post this to saucydwellings!" So, erm, here I am. Hello, everyone. :) I hope that this holds up to some of the incredible beautiful rooms that I've seen on here; it's definitely off the beaten path a bit.
After our roommate moved out a month or so ago, and I agreed to turn his old bedroom into a guest bedroom / classic gaming room. There's still a lot more that I want to do with it, but it's finally at a stage where I can sit down and play some Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!.
A mural we decided to put up on the wall. The stickers are from ThinkGeek, and were a gift from underwhelm and gawm. I think they look fantastic.
This might be the coolest poster... ever. It was a Nintendo Fun Club, erm, Club Nintendo reward. I liked this poster so much that I had a frame custom-made for it. Who the heck makes a 16.5625" x 28.625" sized poster, anyways?
A set of maps that I had printed out. They're from The Legend of Zelda, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (both Light and Dark World), and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
And here's one map, up close.
Luigi hanging out above the window silly. To the left is a koinobori, a decoration typically put out in Japan in honor of Children's Day. To the right (not pictured), is a Power Star, above the closet door.
A triforce stained-glass suncatcher that I made a year or so ago, hanging in the window.
And the main event - the games themselves. NES, SNES, PS2, Genesis, PS1, Dreamcast, GBA, Gamecube, Xbox, and DS. Was nice to take these out of storage and actually put them on the shelves.
A poster from The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, and a Goomba hanging out on top of the bookshelf. Have you ever noticed how angry they look? He looks pissed! Erm... is it a he? Do Goombas have a gender? And how do they reproduce?
And the video game systems. Got a NES, SNES, Genesis, and PS2. Hey... wait. Is that Soda Popinski? I hate that guy!
Kirby hanging out on the futon. You'll notice that it's covered with a totally sweet handmade Triforce blanket that was a gift from kizdeana. It's awesome! Also, there's a Zelda pillow that I picked up on Etsy.
Even kitties love playing on the NES! Kirby's a big fan of Kid Icarus, just as long as he isn't getting turned into an eggplant.
So, anyways, that's the room. I think it's a TKO from Tokyo.
Make with the Sauce!
