Donkey Kong Country Papercraft

It’s been awhile since I posted a papercraft project (of my own making), so I’m happy to share these crates from the first Donkey Kong Country game (SNES). All 5 “animal buddies” are accounted for. Also I made a crate for Smash Bros too.

I recommend you use Card Paper, which makes for a very sturdy crate. After the jump you’ll find all the templates.

Geeky Paper Lunch Bag Prints

Geeky Lunch Bags

Another printable for you to tackle, for those who like really easy DIY. These are logos you can print onto your paper lunch bag to make it look like a take-out bag:

You can use white paper bags or regular brown bags (for that McDonald’s look). Your choices are Los Pollos Hermanos, The Krusty Krab, Mooby’s, and Smiley’s (that only took a minute to make so why not?).

You can find the instructions and downloads after the jump.

This is a high-res backdrop facsimile of Back to the Future III’s famous clock photograph. With Photoshop you can add yourself and some friends, then hang this on the wall to mess with people.

Comic Book Mirrors

Comic Book Mirror Decals

The idea of using a magazine cover as a mirror is an old one. Why not a comic book-themed mirror for us geeks?

I am proposing a rectangular mirror that comes with the logo, masthead, and barcode from a comic book cover; essentially turning the mirror into a comic book where you are the hero. OR this could be a set of decals that you can apply to any mirror.

In my opinion this mirror would be a great confidence booster. Think of it: if you are seeing yourself labelled as Superman or Wonder Woman daily, you might subconsciously subscribe to the notion that you are indeed super.

I’m informed that decals used for cars would do the trick, because they are immune to UV light and moisture, making them ideal for the bathroom mirror.
