Nintendo Controller Handbag: Retro Never Looked So Good
Attention old school gaming fanatics. Here's your chance to put your love of video games and fashion on display for the world to see. Hot off the Etsy.com runway, courtesy of inhope -- teacher, gamer, and craftswoman, comes the Nintendo Controller handbag.
Lovingly made out of vinyl the purse is a playful re-creation of the iconic grey, black, and red Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) controller, the purse takes about an hour to make from start to finish. So why a NES controller?
The NES controller was one of my first bags I ever made.I picked a NES controller because I like to sew things that make me happy. I have a ton of early childhood memories of holding that thing, playing the Mario games, Blades of Steel, and the often underrated, Where's Waldo game,says inhope.
The box shaped approximately 14x8" bag can carry the all the gamer girl essentials - wallet, makeup, phone, and Nintendo DSi.
Priced at $39.99, this kitschy accessory is a steal. In fact, at the time this post was written, the bag had sold out, but inhope has promised that the bag will be in stock soon.
