Video Game Crafts ‘N Gear #29: Plants Vs. Zombies Cake, Tetris Bookcase, Portal Bedroom

 [Welcome again to Video Game Crafts ‘N Gear! This is a weekly feature wherein I shine the spotlight on three of the best custom-made, video game-inspired projects I’ve come across this week. Whatever the game and whether it’s art, crafts, toys, cosplay, animations or anything creative, if it’s awesome enough I’ll share with you wonderful readers!]

Plants Vs. Zombies Cake

Perhaps one of the most anticipated video game sequels ever has been announced recently, with even the title of Plants Vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time knowing that that it has left fans waiting and pining for a sequel for years. Surely, it’s time to celebrate! And where there are celebrations, there must be cake.

Reddit user Wiltylock brought this to the internet’s attention. Part of what makes PvZ so great is that literally anyone can enjoy it, and I’m sure the little 4 year-old that received this cake on his birthday was overjoyed. Parents may say “don’t play with your food”, but there must be some exception made here–I’d wanna play around with those delicious-looking  models before eating them! In fact, this is probably the only time in PvZ where it’s good to have your plants eaten.

Tetris Bookcase

After decades of Tetris dominance, everyone has tetronimo shapes embedded in their memory–those straight lines and clear-cut corners were made to be assembled together. Apparently they’re not only addictive to play around with digitally, they also make awesome furniture.

User johloh on Craftster these Tetris bookshelves. Not only does it look fantastic, each Tetris piece has been made seperately–meaning you can move and re-arrange them as you please. And best of all, they don’t disappear when you make a complete line!

Portal Bedroom

I’ve always imagined it being far too terrifying to live in the Aperture Science testing chambers. Deadly lasers, cake-obsessed mad-men and a sinister, insane robotic overload watching my every move and constantly plotting my death. Still, I would ignore all of that to live in this bedroom by Lauren Jennings.

Lauren has made the room appear exactly as the testing rooms do in the game, complete with worn, grey wallpaper, signs, symbols, and unbelievable lighting effects. There’s even replica portal guns! Please Lauren, invite me to a sleepover. Just one night?
