Bead Art

Ever see those weird pictures of scenes reenacted with legos and stuff like that?  Or Album covers recreated with weird ropes and wires or whatever the hell they use?  I guess that some people seem to have way too much time on their hands.  Nevertheless it’s kind of a hoot to see this stuff.

Well here I’ve found some strange coalition of beings who like to recreate 8-Bit characters using beads.  I found it to be amusing because some of your more memorable characters were featured.

Here are 15 pictures of video game characters using bead art.

    Holy shit, the person that does this is my ex-roommates girlfriend. Her work is amazing and she makes a decent amount of cash doing this. All of the sprites are actually magnets, so there is use to them. I think the shit is cool as hell.
