Would trade PS3/PS2/PS1 stuff (and I have a vita game that might be worth something, maybeprobablynot) but aren't region locks an issue for the older two? My collection of PS3 titles is much smaller.

I will message you a list of things I'm willing to part with if you'd like. 

My PlayStation is, eh, somewhat different (it was totally legal back then and I only ever use its now forbidden power for imports, never bootlegs!) and I have a NTSC U/C PS2, so region locks aren't a problem :)

Think there is enough time for my mom to make me one of those totoros before Christmas ? :0

Christmas next year, probably.

The blanket itself isn't that big and I have made blankets that size in less than a week, but making and sewing together all the squares adds a lot of hours. Three three of us worked on it for three solid days and someone still had to take it home with her and finish it.

The Blanket Brigade has failed more than a few sanity checks...

"You'll burn your fingers on a project that big!"
"Don't care. We're already extra crispy."

#1: I will pay you for a Nintendo bracelet Tomara.  I will pay for your materials and time and shipping to the U.S. if you're willing to put in the work.  And if not that's ok too. 

Would you be willing to trade? I like trades, because I'll end up with something with a story as well. More fun that way. Maybe you already have a PS2/DS/PSP/PS3 game you could trade or something. We can figure something. Kinda depends on what you feel the bracelet it worth (because I have no idea what to ask for it).

Aw, thanks! :)

I still make bracelets occasionally, but rarely ones as elaborate as the NES controller. Those are a lot of work and it just selling them to random people at conventions just isn't as much fun as sending them all across the globe.

I think I still have a picture somewhere...



I made a few versions to figure out what worked/looked best...

Some other stuff:



My friends and I made this for a charity auction a couple of years ago. We made most of it during the convention, but due to some poor planning we ended up completing it during the action, right there on stage. Even with a spolight on us, it was kind of hard to see what we were doing. It's one of those 'never again' things you remember fondly anyway.

I've made Super Mario mushroom granny square blankets for several children, and the MangaKissain Utrecht has one as well. This is the fanciest one:



And a little while ago, because the charity auction blanket did not teach us all the lessons it should have, my friends and I decided to make a baby blanket for the first child of the MangaKissa's founders (because they are really nice people who do great things for the community). It got out of hand and the Blanket Brigade ended up making this:



It's 899 squares - a terrible number in multiple ways. It was worth it.

No, penguin, no! That's suicide! ;_;

Here's some penguins fighting like angry little girls to cheer everyone up.

Hmm, no, I think yours make sense. Eternia, Symphonia and Graces are more or less archetype JRPGs. The JRPGs to end all JRPGs. Xillia has a bit more mature feel to it.

Plus, I'm pretty easy to please, too. I mean, sure, I'm going to whine and complain, but that's mostly because I'm so familiar with the series. I love the franchise and enjoy every installment.

... Though that might change if I ever play Tempest.

I dreamt I was vacationing in a park that was set up like a MMORPG. You could do quests to earn points which could exchanged for prizes. Kind of like a big, elaborate easter egg hunt with hiking trails (some locations took some time to get to), augmented reality monsters to fight, shops and attractions. Would have been fun in real life.

However, it was even more fun in the dream, because I knew I was dreaming and cheated at everything. Quests are really easy if you can fly, walk through walls, create objects out thin air and more. Also fun: ordering every flavour of icecream on the menu because you have infinite money.

I might be a horrible person.

You would feel bad if you knew the reason she wears leggings that should have been throw out years ago! She breathes through her skin.

No, wait. The cold doesn't bother her, because [whispers]she's already dead[/whispers].

Yeah, I guess they're small rather than tiny, but over here people are used to having a little more space.

Isn't it usually just the loft/bedroom that has a very low ceiling?

Visually it's ships, a forest, a dungeon and the most obvious demon/angel allusion MCs ever.  Velvet is some hardcore woman in her tattered black and red demon costume and that boy literally looks like an angel with HALO HAIR and frock.

Oeh! Who wants to bet angel kid has a Meaningful Name(TM), like a funky spelling of faith or something? A new Hope!

Haha, my sister has the perfect middlename for this game. Berendina -> courageous, strong like bear.

Or like living in a basic Japanese studio apartment. This is a possible layout for a container flat:



Something like this usually costs something like 350-400 a month (including utilities).

Raquel was great and I loved her ending.
Code:
Modern fiction often sees becoming a mother as a weakness because of old-fashioned ways of thinking claiming motherhood is the highest role a woman can achieve, but I think that's silly. In the short time she had left, Raquel not only managed to find what she found important, but also pass it on to others. And looking at how hard she fought, she more than deserved find her own happiness.

Oh, female Albel Nox!
