Poké (My) Balls

I was talking my coworker, Chris, one morning and I asked him what I should cosplay as for an upcoming convention. His response to me was “a Chansey and you should have Pokeballs that light up and play the Poke Center theme.” I took that and made it happen:

Built with an Arduino Uno, 6 red LEDs, a momentary pushbutton, a piezo buzzer, clear acrylic balls, spray paint, vinyl, and lots of jumper wires.

Here’s a photo of me and my group:

Two down and 23 to go!

My first Etsy sale!


I had a random thought one night to create some Pokeball decals.

After I finished cutting them, layering, and finishing them – I posted my success on reddit and then oddly some people wanted them! So to please the internet I made an Etsy store to sell my decals!


A couple days later I checked my email and lo and behold… a sale! I was pretty surprised when I got my first read that email from Etsy. I totally did not expect it to even happen but I guess people are always looking for Pokemon things?

My first sale made me happy enough that I even included a thank you card and an extra decal on top of the two she ordered!
