As a friend of mine recently said to me and my partner, “I’ve seen some geeky rooms in my day, but never one like this from two girls.” My partner and I bought a house last August and when we saw we have two extra bedrooms on the first floor we knew what to do. One will be my office, for writing and art and things, and the second is… well, this :)
Everything is hand drawn and painted by me and my partner. She did the Sonic painting inside the closet and the Tetris on the side of it (which she decided to do a messed up game of Tetris instead of a perfect one since “this is what happens to me when I play). She also painted Jack Frost on the side of the window, and we’re going to paint shadow Teddie above it since he looks so cool. Meanwhile, I did the Konami code above the door, the Portal painting with Wheatley, the Starfox ship, and Katamari (she helped with the portal and Wheatley) in space, and the pac-man around the shelves. The TMNT picture above the portal was also made by me.
Our ceiling is black, which we plan to paint a portal on the moon once we get the chance. Portal 2 fans will know why :) We also are going to paint a MegaMan level above one of the windows because we got an awesome 2D MegaMan item from Anime Milwaukee. Also thinking about getting the King of all Cosmos on the ceiling, too.
All of the figures, video games, manga, anime, blu rays, standees, and everything is a combination of all of our things. Once we got out of the apartment we had much more room to spread things out. There’s more figures in our living room, more of the “fancier” or high quality ones, like a lot of our comic book figures and such. The living room is also where all of the game systems are (but we’re trying to figure out how to make room in the Geek Room — which this room is called — for the Magnovox Odyssey my dad just straight up GAVE me)
The Geek Room does NOT have all of our figures, there’s still some randomly in boxes that we need to get out ^^;;; Our next project is painting the bathroom next to the Geek Room in an underwater Mario theme. We already have the walls painted blue and all of my little Mario figures are around the sink.
So, in conclusion, my geekery spreads across everything, clearly. I’m lucky to have a fantastic partner who’s just as geeky as me (she’s more anime while I’m more video games, but combined it makes wonderful things like this).
