Chibi Carmine Charm Necklace

chibi carmine charmIf asked to describe the characters from the popular Gears of War video game series, “cute” would not be the first adjective that pops into my mind. Macho? Yes. Beefy?  Yes. Adorable? No.  

Well, Etsy store Wonderland Contraband is changing that image just a little bit with their tough-yet-sweet version of Private Anthony Carmine.

The charm stands less than four centimeters tall, but is chock-full of carefully rendered details.  I can’t get over how the artist, Shiela, made a weapon like the lancer actually look cute, even when spattered in blood!

I’d love to see the rest of Delta Squad in chibi-charm form. It’d make a great bracelet to wear to a Gears of War 3 release party later this year.

I’d Hit That

This Mario themed cross stitch was featured over at Mr. X Stitch as a “stitchgasm” and I can see why. I’m going to have to make one for myself. Deviant-experiment01 posted this, saying it was “My first real “project” when it came to cross stitching”. This is such a great idea!

It goes ding when there’s stuff

It goes ding when there's stuffWhoah!  It’s a timey-wimey detector necklace!!! (it goes ding when there’s stuff)  Really like the font, layout, and the extra ‘ding’ pendant is perfect!  I love this almost as much as I love David Tennant…

imaginationemporium on Etsy has this and other super sweet doctor pendants (allons-y!)  Yet another MUST HAVE for my collection :)
