After a 5 hour video game bonanza Friday night, I have officially become a guitar hero and Wii fanatic – or shall I see Mii fanatic?
Thank you Tres for opening up your lovely home for a party – with hopes of many more! Guitar Hero has me hooked. I automatically love any game that involves Primus’, John the Fisherman, and Sonic Youth’s, Kool Thing.
Creating Miis at midnight, was the icing on the cake. Miis are tiny avatars you design on the Wii as your game player. Mii creation has actually turned into it’s own cultural phenomenon.
There are plenty of Mii celebrity look-a-like sites which I find very entertaining.
However, I wanted to share this little gem: www.fabjectory.com.
For $50, Fabjectory will create a look-a-like Mii statuette of your avatar. You simply send them a photo of your Mii and they do all the rest. Brilliant. This is the perfect surprise gift for your Wii loving friend. There are rumours of Wii statuettes being used as cake toppers at weddings. Can I say geek love?
I will need to post a photo of one of my Miis. They are truly something to behold (or be afraid of). (coming soon)
