Retro Gaming Art of Etsy (Part 1)

For many fans of gaming, owning and playing the games is not enough. Certain games inspire our creativity, and get us to seek out new ways of exploring and expressing our appreciation for them. This often takes form in clothing, accessories, art, or even toys. Here at Super Retro Bros we are no different and often find ourselves scouring the web for interesting new ideas based on these old classics. A great place to locate such things is a site called Etsy (look into it). Today I would like to share with you some of the Art that has recently found its way onto my Etsy "Favorites List". Keep in mind most, if not all of these items are available in extremely limited quantities. Many pieces are one-offs. If you see one you like, pick it up before its gone for good. Let us know in your favorites below in the comment section!

Title: Zelda Triforce Table Lamp - Green & Yellow Stained Glass - Custom Colors Available

Artist's Description: This Triforce lamp is sure to instill you with courage, wisdom and power!
Ok, I make no guarantees about that. It would sure look good while you're playing though!
This Triforce table lamp is composed of green and yellow wispy stained glass and looks great all aglow.

Each piece of Spectrum glass is cut by hand. After the glass is cut, the edges are ground down and each piece gets wrapped in copper foil. I then solder the pieces together and frame the lamp out in zinc. After the piece is cleaned, black patina is applied and I then give the lamp a nice waxing to polish the metal and make the glass shine! *I now default to black patina for the solder finish*

The lamp measures about 6.5 inches on each side and is 3 inches deep.

Included is a small wooden base, 6 foot lamp cord with a candelabra snap-in socket, and rocker switch. 40 watt bulbs are the maximum recommended.

Don't forget, this lamp is made to order! It will usually ship 1-2 weeks from sale.

Due to the variations in every sheet of glass, no two lamps are exactly alike.

Title: Mega Buster LED Light Art

Artists Description: This is a really cool item! After lots of experimenting with laser engraving and LED lighting I'm now offering awesome edge-lit laser-etched light pieces like this one! Be as excited about this as I am!

A detailed and intricate schematic of Mega Man's iconic arm cannon seemingly floats in mid-air, glowing a bright blue, much like the Bomber himself when charged up and ready to fire. This effect (which isn't adequately conveyed in photos) is achieved by laser etching a piece of clear acrylic and placing it behind another identical non-etched sheet, seemingly suspending the design in mid-air.

The design is framed in glossy blue acrylic, and sits on top of a similar sheet. The piece measures approximately 6" by 8" and its illumination comes from a strip of blue LED's that are attached to the etched surface. The LED strip's cord exits from the bottom left of the piece, and a standard AC power source with a black 6 foot cord is included.

This piece stands on its own, and it can also be hung like a framed picture with a wire (included upon request). Please specify whether you plan on displaying the piece standing or hanging when you check out and I'll make sure it's ready for you to display upon receiving it.

Title: Colorful Mario Question Mark Block Lamp - Nintendo root

Artist's Description: If Mario already lights up your life, why not give him a shot at the end table too?

Lamp is now open on the bottom to allow for a more stable overall design (no more opening and closing the lid to get the bulb out) and also allows for heat to escape.

Very colorful and unique lamp is made of a quarter inch poplar frame, colored translucent acrylic to give the center question mark a nice shine, and colored paper to add a bit of texture to the bricks on either side.

- Beautiful, large lamp 16.5" x 5.5" x 5.5"
- Energy efficient bulb included
- Long 15' cord capable of hanging the lamp
- Two openings for easy wall mounting on back of lamp

Perfect for a kid's room, as well as those who still think they are kids (which is very okay, I definitely have one of these over my desk). Ships fully assembled with one bulb in the US and Canada. For over seas purchases, its worth noting that the lamp has a North American outlet plug, so an adapter will be needed if you live in a region with different electrical standards.

Please only use fluorescent bulbs with the lamp, as standard incandescent bulbs create much much more heat, and can occasionally cause warping if the lamp is left on for an extended period of time.
Each lamp will be assembled and shipped within 3 to 5 business days. We make them all to order with buckets of love and care.
