I have fallen to the Minecraft bug. I have to say, it was partly because it’s still half off through out the alpha, but I was also sick of listening to conversations about the game and not being able to play myself. I honestly love this freaking game.
If you aren’t familiar with the game, you must live under a rock. Check it out here. What I’ve been hearing from the boys is, “It’s like Legos!” and it is in a lot of ways. It’s been fun running around building things, and well there’s crafting involves, so I’m in. I’m really looking forward to being able to make some of the nicer things.
The greatest aspect about the game for me is something a little different than carving apart mountain ranges and building cloud castles. You see, you can reskin your characters. This means that if I want to, I can build a cloud castle, and then dress my character up like Rainbow Brite and live out some childhood fantasies.
So I made some skins. I’ve only made the three so far, and I made them mostly because the ones posted on the Minecraft forums are fairly male oriented. I, being an eternally five year old girl, made these for myself.To start with, I made Sailor Mars. She’s always been my favorite Sailor, and I figured she’d be some what easy to pull off.
Here’s what I ended up with
For some reason I was like, I know, I’ll make Strawberry Shortcake! So I did. I think it was the hat that sold me.
She even has a strawberry on her hat!
Finally, just because I was on an 80′s cartoon kick,
Now, if you have skins, I want to see them.
