This all started when I saw a Zapper and went 'hmm, bet that would make a cool lamp...' so I gutted one and wired it up- next was a 1.5 scale replica of a game cartridge for the base (made from cardboard, weighted with decorative stones that I had no use for, hehe)... and a painted thrift shade with fun foam cut-outs! Ugh, I don't know *how* many hours I sat there cutting out pixellated grass and trees and dogs and ducks..... why must I choose such picky work to do?
I do love it, though. I think it turned out better than I expected.
Edit::Thanks to everyone who spread this around, I've been featured in the August issue of Nintendo Power! [link]
