Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer

If anyone has been watching Westworld on HBO, then they have been probably happy to see the new Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer from Rockstar Games. The wild west open world concept game is coming back with a follow-up sequel and as long as they fix the suicidal horses glitch from the past game, I will definitely be on board to check out this new title.

Rest in peace, Silver.

Coming for Xbox One and Playstation 4.

First Look at Nintendo Switch

For years, I used to think about how great it would be to have the ability to take the games I played at home and take them on the road with me instantly. Nintendo not only figured this out but added an easy multi-player mode to it.

Nintendo Switch is a pretty cool idea and it might be enough to bring this gamer back to the Nintendo fold. Well, this and the new Pokemon game.

8-Bit Art: 3D Pokemon House Project

Unfortunately Canada Post is in the middle of a contract negotiation and there is a possibly now of postal strike as soon as Friday. This possible strike has left me no choice but to put my Etsy store, Pixelized Creations on vacation mode until the issue is resolved and I know for sure my packages can go out without fear of them getting stuck in transit.

This has left me though with tons of time to work on new fused bead art projects, so I decided to enter a contest on instagram where you had to make a fused bead art piece with a Pokemon theme. I decided to make a little scene with Ash and Pikachu fighting another trainer with their pokemon. Then it escalated into a bigger piece with a house, plants etc. And then I decided to make the house 3D. I had to play around with a couple different concepts before I got the piece to finally fit.

The final project I think turned out pretty darn good though. It is made completely from perler/hama beads and a little bit of e6000 glue. I used only black, white, grey, dark grey and hama brand's translucent grey colour. Not sure how many beads I used total but I know I went through 3.5 bags of grey beads roughly which is 3500 beads.

The patterns I got mostly from the Pokemon Red/Blue game though I had to come up with the garden soil and side/back of the house patterns on my own. The 3D house pattern is completely my own design too.

I will plan to sell this when the postal strike is over with. I am not sure about the pricing but I will let people know if they are interested in purchasing it now. I can always look into other couriers for this like FedEx or UPS.

I will update everyone when my store reopens. Pixelized Creations

8-Bit Art: Legend of Zelda Master Sword and Hyrulian Shield Cake Topper

I have always been a huge Legend of Zelda fan and recently I came up with an awesome idea for a cake topper.

I took a Master Sword and Hyrule Shield fuse bead piece set I already had and placed them on top of a cake in a great way. It looked awesome.

This cake topper set is made from plastic, non-toxic, food safe perler beads.

The sword is 7.5 inches long and 3.25 inches at the hilt. The shield is 4.5 inches tall and 4 inches wide.
The cake topper set sells for $12 Canadian plus shipping via my Etsy shop.
