Club Nintendo and revving for Fanime

I was so excited to receive a package from Nintendo last week! Initially, the Club Nintendo incentive program was only available in Japan but a couple years ago they brought it to the states! Basically, you earn coins for every Nintendo game or accessory you buy and you can spend those coins on special Nintendo products. I've been eying this particular item for a while now...

What could it be?


A DS game holder with Mario hat design! It comfortably holds about seven games. I love it! It goes well with my 1-up coin bank~


I've been pretty busy scrambling to get stuff done for Fanime including putting together accessories for my lolita panel outfit. I'm anxious about the panel, I hope guests leave it feeling informed and less intimidated. I know lolita fashion can be daunting to get into.

I'm putting together a strawberry/country themed coord. I found the boater hat at Ross (!) for $10 which I customized with strawberries I made from fleece and some daisies. The basket I found at Goodwill for $2.99 and painted red and made the front motif to match the hat.



Also for Fanime, specifically for our Artist's Alley table, I made this display unit. The frame started out black which I painted with pink and silver paint. I removed the glass and covered foam sheets with fabric and then stuck pins in it. This way we can hang our phone charms instead of laying them on the table. Super easy for under $15.



Lastly, when Emmi and I had lunch the other day she gifted me Hello Kitty Macaroni! This is a perfect portion for one person and comes with a sticker. It doesn't come with any cheese or other sauce but the noodles are adorable on their own.


Features Hello Kitty and flower shapes

Oh wow that frame display you made for so cheap is great. Was the frame a second hand find or did you buy it new?

Geeky Glamorous said...

The frame I bought new from T.J.Maxx :) Thank you ^^

Hehe, I used to eat Hello Kitty pasta all the time, when I was little! Have you seen the Hello Kitty seaweed? It's nori cut to look like Hello Kitty confetti! XD

Geeky Glamorous said...

 HK nori sounds amazing, I have never seen that!

Very nice game holder :)
once they offered a golden Link + Epona statue for 14000 points I think... and I had like..12000? Wow, that was frustrating. Another time I ordered the Pokemon Stadium + Snap OST, but it never arrived :/... which I noticed way too late. But at least the limited Zelda Collector's Edition arrived.
Btw, I see you play Pokemon Black - I'd love to battle :D

Geeky Glamorous said...

Thanks darlin'. Been trying to save money lately so since I can't afford the AP boater hat I figure making my own was the next best. :)

Geeky Glamorous said...

 Thank you so much! I am so excited to have had enough coins to "buy" it.

Fanime is in downtown San Jose, California.

14,000 point?! OMG, that's sooo many! It took me long enough just to get 600 for the hat game holder. I can't imagine how long it would take to earn 14,000. I'm shocked your reward never arrived, what a bummer T__T
Ooh actually I have Pokemon White (bf has black), I would love to battle sometime! Currently leveling my pokemon to 75 to battle the Champion~~

Ragrunzel said...

Yeah, that sure was a lot+.+ especially now that Nintendo stars expire after 12 months..that's the reason I don't save for any rewards anymore...I only use the stars for Nintendo points now. 
Btw, the statue is being sold at ebay for over 100€. And it's even getting more expensive! Crazy shit, but omg, it looks so awesome.
Oh yay, high 5 for White ;D just drop me a line when you're prepared, I'm looking forward to it! Just in case you don't know: all Pokemon will be downgraded to Lv 50 for Wifi battles, so you don't need to train till Lv 100 to battle me xD

Christine Ta said...

 THAT HAT IS TOOO CUTE!!! I REALLY WANT ONE TOO!!! >w<!!! You should take commissions on things like that, they are wayy too amazingly adorable!! ;3

Geeky Glamorous said...

Thanks Christine, it was super easy to make!

Geeky Glamorous said...

 Thanks Oli! You should totally make a frame for your keychains.

I'm sure you will do wonderfully at AX. I love your stuff. :3

Avaloves said...

The disblay unit you made is so pretty! I love how the pink and silver go together <3
So pretty! I would love something like that no my wall <3
The Hello Kitty pasta looks cute too ^^

Geeky Glamorous said...

Thank you very much! You could totally have something like that on your wall, would work well to hang necklaces and bracelets. :)
