Totally Geeky or Geek Chic? Crocheted Atari

JackRabbit from Etsy had one of my favorite tables at the Maker Faire's Bazaar Bizarre - an area which, for the record was filled with crafts, artwork, clothing, jewelry and beautiful goodies made by top-notch crafters.

Not only am I a sucker for bright, crochet things, but the fact that she crocheted a vintage Atari takes geeky crafting and combines it with vintage geek - my favorite combination of all.

JackRabbit isn't currently selling the Atari on her Etsy page, but something tells me she'd be inspired by requests. What do you think?

Its art...and I love it. They just did a huge art show called 8-bit and it was just paintings inspired by video games. Maybe an art show of just knit pieces inspired by video games would work too! This person who made this had a great deal of talent. You rock. I can only knit a scarf, so I bow to thee.

It's cute, but not really practical. Now, a crocheted Atari cover to put over a PS3 or Xbox 360--now that would be geeky chic.

I can't believe "Totally geeky" is ahead in the votes. I think this is adorable! I mean, not for me, but y'know...

I appreciate the craftsmanship, but if this isn't totally geeky I don't know what is.

not a fan, but it definitely looks like it took a lot of time and effort.

holy crap. I used to spend hours on that game, especially the part with the three alligators in a row...and holy crap with the crochet work too...Additionally, hey 'colormesticky', check your verbs yo.

I take that back. I just realized she crotched Pitfall. It just went from cute to supercool. Best. Game. EVAR.

It's sure better than those cheesy Kleenex cozies. It's weird, but it's cute in a kitchy sort of way.

I'm all for the Atari, but isn't that just a bit much? Haha XD
