Reddit user troymcklure didn't want any old nursery when he created one for his newborn child. He decided that bog-standard teddies and pastel-shades were too mainstream, and decided instead to create a room themed entirely around Mario Kart 8 - and the most amazing thing is, this work follows his Zelda and Yoshi-themed creations.
After a year and a half of work, this puppy is finally done! After creating my Legend of Zelda and Yoshi's Island nurseries, I knew I had to up the ante just a bit. After searching online, there didn't seem to be any big attempts at a Mario Kart nursery out there, and with the newest version coming out, Mario Kart 8, that sparked my interest. I had a vision in my head and set out to make it happen.
This project was an excuse to get familiar with several new materials and techniques such as styrofoam sculpting and silicone molding/ resin casting.
You can see more of this talented chap's work over at Geek Smithing. We sure hope his kid appreciates all of the effort when he grows up!
That is one dedicated dad!
Can't believe he made everything himself!!! Awesome job, really cool vid!
That's serious decorating
Intense; Should hire him for the Universal theme park...
What an awesome dad!
Sigh, is he for hire? I've got two rooms and one nursery to be done. Best I've got is a few Nintendo themed teddies.
I wouldn't call it weird... I call it TOTALLY AWESOME!!! And he has all 8 Mario Kart game boxes on the wall!!!
I am way too old to be saying this but....dangit I wish MY dad was that cool...
Also, the Mario Kart Statue that he made looks like it took MONTHS!!
That is cool wish my room when I was little...
Wish he was MY dad!
1. Nintendo should hire him immediately.
2. I'm a bad dad in comparison.
The video was awesome.
He fricking put a gravity defying mario with lights on the fricking roof, how cool is that?
i don't think it is weird! i think it is great
its labeled "weirdness" just because it doesn't fit under any of their other categories.
Wow, surprised he named his son Grant, and not Mario.
I might need to try out that styrofoam sculpting not sure I have the dedication to take on the silicon molding! Great work!
It wouldn't be so great after all if the kid grows up hating the series.
That is pretty awesome!!
