Perler Platty

Recommended Posts

Been doing a lot of stuff with perler beads lately. Don't know what prompted Mrs. Platty to purchase 35,000 or so beads, but there's only 1 thing to do with them, right?

 

Been making some DQXI people. Since the 3DS version has 2D sprites, I have been working on some of them.

This was tough. Wanted to make alternate costumes. The in-game sprites aren't quite the right size and are 4x as many pixels, so I had to alter it a bit to fit on my grid. I think it came out well. Finished too late for my wife to iron (yeah, I leave that to her, she makes it nice and pixelated). 0a51b89101944c96b752de0902b06bd1.jpgf7e187a2adcd49dcb569106c1cee21e6.jpgfed5caeaea228e4217be531d25aba5fd.jpg

Nice work. I bought a bunch of these (not Perler, I don't think, but a smaller kind) awhile back. I'm waiting until my son is old enough not to eat them, in order to break these out.

My wife swears she had to pull 2 or 3 things out of Plattym5's mouth, but that was it... total so far between almost 8 years of life with 2 kids. There's been plenty of other issues, but luckily not that.

Speaking of Mrs. Platty, she's found her relaxation in sorting 22,000 of these. Well, probably 18,000 so far but she's determined to finish. 7a661abd39802ed367d5cc1d3b81e4e5.jpg383480700481de88d88f6dfcb90fe1bf.jpg

These look great 😮

Also, TIL that the Perler brand markets themselves as "Perler Beads" in English, which sounds annoyingly redundant.

Does perler mean beads in another language?

Maybe it does wherever Sumez is from. Maybe it’s offensive to him.

A few years ago I made an 8-bit themed Christmas wreath for my mom. I recreated a bunch of sprites (mostly from Dragon Quest, a couple from SMB, etc.) and tied them to a wreath with fishing line, securing it with hot glue.

Just finished up the DQXI Luminary. We'll see how he melts out in a few minutes. Since I absolutely #$*!ing hate his hair, I did him in his empire's armor. 354450a7209b9dd0b7e7bfe1ff1e91d3.jpg&key=8147f3cfbac956b2fc9b3072d946b33a2b2b298d99527525901d4477510b4789

I'm pretty sure that's the whole reason for the "Perler" name. :) I actually assumed it was a Swedish brand for some reason.

edit: The invention at least is.

Oh, I forgot my new one. Veronica in her Stella wear. 2fc66af8f8918495d8517c70005cb603.jpg7c6febbd60c85f9b2c2300bca9d8e5f3.jpg

I ran out of flesh tone ones. Need to stock up before I complete the DQXI crew. Next up though... c8a651fa41a746d419eb287405f4f365.jpg802923142a5423426000e486a68122a9.jpg0f504fe4d5a84621342bfc7c86af4583.jpg

Finished up the DQXI crew last night and due to too much coffee, decided to start (and finish) DQIV Hero. I'm going to do all the heroes next I think. Maybe a couple more monsters. My wife texted me after she woke up today (I left early for work) and was like "You finished 3 last night!?" Well, as you can see, our 25,000+ beads are nicely sorted thanks to Mrs. Platty. Makes it so easy. Here's the whole collection. adf3b58e77e094583cb6140d6dc3b445.jpgb880048da772729a1a0f0db79b48f965.jpga89bd76891eed6287a04a206db4ff699.jpg516a13d291e57d13b2e6eb7b834271a5.jpg

Went back to old school! Used the SNES versions as inspiration. 978d9871c5b884215ebae53b2ae2852d.jpg938a290320bda053d05d49f0a1080974.jpg1e01521d59d3bd7fc158ed813cbd13fa.jpgad3aa1d6e2a06606b646cf9b9260107a.jpg

Finally got some new beads in and finished up the DQIV Hero pair.

Going on vacation to a mountain hideaway next week and bringing all the beads. The question is do I set a goal of all the dq3 jobs or the DQIV cast. bc2ffcbf9d23735948e8d51b73b6de73.jpg
