Classic games room...

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, bearfoot1230 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!!.

Mario Mural

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.

Link's History
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?

Zelda Maps
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.

Legend of Zelda Map
And here's one map, up close.

Luigi and Koinobori
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.

Triforce Suncatcher
A triforce stained-glass suncatcher that I made a year or so ago, hanging in the window.

The Games
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.

Angry Goomba
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?

The Systems
And the video game systems. Got a NES, SNES, Genesis, and PS2. Hey... wait. Is that Soda Popinski? I hate that guy!

Triforce Blanket
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.

Kirby loves NES
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.


D'awww I love it!! gonna show it to my boyfriend, his gaming room needs more cheery wall stickers ;D We've been meaning to get them for quite a while but never got around to it.
(Being pissy is what Goombas do best!)

Yay! Let me know what he things! Hopefully he won't be pissy like that Goomba.

Oh my gosh, this is way too cool! I want to make a fun gaming room, too!


That's pretty freaking awesome. I really have a soft spot for well done theme rooms.

OMGs LOVE IT!!!!! Might steal your ideas for our future Man Cave! :D

Have at it! Make sure to invite me over for some River City Ransom or something. :D

AW HALES YES. I'm pretty sure you have to invite everyone who sees this over to play, now. I'll wear my Space Invaders dress. Also I can bring cupcakes. (I'm kidding, of course. I don't actually own a Space Invaders dress.)

Clearly goombas reproduce by spore dispersal!

You know, now that I think about it, Goombas *are* kinda shaped like cupcakes. Maybe Bowser just bakes them in some kind of industrial kitchen or the like?

In any case, your cupcakes alone are good for one (1) admittance to my game room, and the choice of any game that you'd like to play. *grins* But you should still get the dress. I would, if I could afford it... I bet it would look awesome.

Boodalee, right?! I have this bookmarked for when we move and get an extra room! (The Mario stickers!)

They're made by Blik actually, although they're cheaper to buy from ThinkGeek (and probably other places, too).

How did you guys do the painting? It's so good. That's beautiful

They're vinyl wall graphics made by Blik, not painted on. I can't imagine how long that would take to paint. *pales*

Oh, I had all kinds of nerdgasms while scrolling. I love it SFM, I may just show up at your house unexpectedly and never leave that room.

I am stealing the Mario stickers idea for my bathroom. Awesome room!
