Beautiful Retro Video Game Shadow Boxes For Sale

February 8, 2017


These are the retro video game shadow boxes built and sold by Etsy shop GlitchArtwork. They range in price from $35 - $75 and some of the Super Nintendo ones even come with a copy of the game cartridge in the display. These are going to be perfect for my retro video game themed rumpus room. "You have a retro video game themed rumpus room?" Well, not yet, but I figure when I'm older and rich I might. "You'll never be rich." And I might die tomorrow, but a boy can dream, can't he? I also want a castle with a moat and drawbridge. "Is that all?" And a fire-breathing dragon to cook cheeseburgers and hotdogs whenever I throw a barbecue.

Keep going for a bunch more.













Thanks to Jackie, who was right when she told me I needed these in my life. Also, friends.

    Not that hard to make yourself with a colour printer. In fact, I think I will do something like these shadowboxes the next time I lay fused bead pegboards with this little 8-year girl that I know, who always wants me to do various Super Mario thingies (stars, mushrooms, feathers etc.).

    These are gorgeous.
    As much as I appreciate the retro vibe, I wish there were some more recent games in here. My game room has a bit of a Bioshock theme to it, and I'd love to see one of these for that game.

    3 weeks ago I got my 1st 5 figure paycheck ever! Been working for this online provider for 7 months now, and can't be more happier. To learn more and possibly apply, go here

    I think part of what makes these look so good is the fact that the source images are all pixel art and 2D sprites. Three-dimensional models wouldn't necessarily look as "cool" just cut out of their backgrounds and brought to the foreground.

    I guess if there were lots and lots of layers like the TV for the Pong shadowbox, then I'd definitely say that could look really cool!
