Watch This! Part 8: Super Mario World
This is not a watch or clock design exactly, just a clock face design that can be applied to a clock or watch. And this face design uses the ten Boos that flew in a circular pattern in a Ghost Castle level in Super Mario World (SNES). Filling in the void is a question block and Mario himself.
I want to say that this is an exact screen grab from the game, but I had to finesse the Boos slightly to fit the clock numbers layout. Also I had to raise the question block a bit and push the Yoshi coin to the left. Other than that it’s true to the game.
I was going to make this into a clock for myself (even bought a small wall clock from IKEA), but my printer – which I hate and is the reason I don’t do more papercraft posts – is on the fritz.
However I will share the template with you! Should be fun for a rainy day project. It is 8.5″ x 8.5″ in size, though you might have to re-size depending on the diameter of your clock and/or your printer’s abilities. I marked the center with a green dot, which you’ll need to punch out for the clock hands.
Another way to go is to make this whole design smaller, making it sit inside the existing numbers of your clock.
Personally I like this design because all the Boos have varying expressions, which gives the clock a lot of personality.
If anyone manages to make this please send me a pic! I’ll post it here. For the rest of the Watch This! series, please click here.
UPDATE: I just bought a couple of these from ArtsCow, will be giving one away on Facebook (thanks for the idea Ashley!):
