The Animal Crossing: New Leaf birthday party ⊟
Look at the birthday party My Paper Crane’s Heidi Kenney threw for her 11-year-old. The Tom Nook pinata. The bell-bag invites. The villager cookies, made from 3D-printed cookie cutters.
The presents on balloons at the table (with a Spoonflower-printed Animal Crossing tablecloth).
Every detail of this is perfect, except for the part where I’m not the birthday boy. Do you think Animal Crossing will still be in style in 10 years, when it’s time for my girls’ 11th?
BUY Animal Crossing: New Leaf ($29.84 right now!), upcoming games
Love this New Leaf/Reese 3DS XL case
This crocheted pouch based on Re-Tail’s alpaca clerk comes from Noelle, and features three cartridge pockets, a button closure, and detachable pieces depending on what design you want to show off.
It looks like Noelle is offering to create one of these hand-made cases for $25, but she can easily get away with charging for much more. Maybe you can get her to make one of Reese’s husband Cyrus, if the guy ever wakes up long enough for someone to get a look at him.
Crocheted BMO 3DS case by Kitlaurie
We were bound to post one of these eventually, seeing as we’ve already put up BMO skins, outfits, and even Game Boys. Kitlaurie is taking crochet commissions, by the way, so you can have her make one of these for you!
The other chap next to the adorable Adventure Time portable is MO-Death, whom Clog Two describes as “a circuit board being, that awaits BMO’s last breath.” But… I don’t want BMO to die ever.
Make your 3DS look like a Pokédex
MegaKX purchased his system after Nintendo announced Pokémon X and Y, and personalized the handheld to get it ready for this October (he can also download the Pokédex 3D Pro app on the eShop).
If you have a Flame Red 3DS to stick it on, you can buy the vinyl decal kit from MegaKX’s friend on Etsy to pull off the same look — it’s a bit expensive, though, at $15 plus s/h.
PREORDER Pokemon X and Y, other upcoming releases
Two awesome Paper Mario: Sticker Star dioramas, crafted by Gigi DG (top) and Finchiekins the Owl (bottom) for Nintendo’s recent contest. I sure am glad I didn’t even attempt to enter this competition — the quality of whatever I could have made would not have even been in the same area code as these two scenes.
Preorder: Paper Mario: Sticker Star (November 11)

A Section Chief Arino plushie crocheted by Gochika for her fiancée (in place of buying him a super expensive imported Arino action figue). Love the cooling pad accessory!
Buy: Retro Game Challenge, Retro Game Master DVD set
Import: Game Center CX 2

The Nintendo Knitting Machine, rumored to have been shown at a late ’80s Consumer Electronics Show for years, finally revealed here in this brochure posted online last night by former Nintendo spokesman Howard Phillips (of Howard & Nester fame).
I would have knitted some crazy garments with this dang thing — Mega Man socks, Teenage Mutant Ninja mittens, swag sweaters with my face on them, etc.

Revolver Oshawott figurine created by Camille Young. If you’re quick, you can join in on the auction at TheSpeedGamers to win this piece. I’m unsure how the auction works, though — I think you make a donation to ACT Today (Autism Care and Treatment)?

I’ve seen plenty of Mario and Luigi cases in this style, but this is the first time I’ve seen a Wario pouch, complete with purple overalls and back pockets for two carts.
Perfect pouch for your Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary 3DS (click for larger images). Tepe hand-cut, hand-tooled, dyed, and painted this leather bag, which you can attach a wrist- or shoulder-strap to if you’re so inclined.
It’s an awesome accessory for Zelda fans looking to encase their 3DSes in Hylian gear, but it’s also quite expensive — commissioning Tepe to create one of these for you will set you back around $40.

Sculpture of Missile, Ghost Trick's cute Pomeranian, by Leilia. This 2”x2.5” piece was crafted out of Super Sculpey polymer clay over a wire and foil armature, then painted with acrylic paints, and coated with a matte finish.
Did you hear that the Spike TV Video Game Awards nominated Ghost Trick for its Best Handheld/Mobile Game category (the show’s organizers felt it necessary to have separate categories for Individual and Team Sports games, but not so for these two different platforms)?
This excellent adventure game has tough competition, though: Super Mario 3D Land, Jetpack Joyride, and Infinity Blade — I’m unsure how the latter two iOS titles beat out Capybara’s Sword And Sworcery EP.
