Late Night Gaming at Museum of Scotland

Friday the 13th unlucky for some! But not for all the lucky guys and gals with tickets to the Museum Lates ‘Games Master’ Evening at the National Museum of Scotland.

The evening was a celebration of all things gaming! traditional games (hungry hippos anyone?)  right through to the contemporary games of today.

With up to 100 playable games on the night, and lots of gaming themed activities, face painting, dress up and lets not forget our very own Retro Gaming Badge Workshop.


Our workshop was inspired by the work of Jeweller Lucie Ellen. Lucie sent us lots of inspiration for badges on the night. Juicy watermelons inspired by her very own watermelon necklace, cute pixelated strawberries amongst many others.

We have lots of Lucie’s funky plywood and vinyl jewellery behind our red doors and in our online shop.

The vinyl for our workshop was very kindly supplied by  Vinyl Warehouse. We had lots of shiny primary coloured vinyl, perfect for making your fun retro creations.


As soon as the doors were opened at 7pm a flood of gaming enthusiasts descended on our workshop as people queued to design and make their very own vinyl badges.


From the scene above to the one below in around 30 mins!! We had lots of eager beavers keen to make their very own badges. It was a whirlwind!

There was lots of great face painting on show. We particularly liked this pac-man!


 The Little Nintendo Mushroom was a popular choice on the evening.

The workshop was an overwhelming success! We unfortunately ran out of badges before the end. We’re sorry if you missed out on making your badge. Those of you who didn’t get one, still got stuck in to the workshop making vinyl stickers for their bikes, fridges and anywhere else that they could think of.

We had a small collection of Lucie’s work on display on the night. This lovely lady was rather smitten with Lucie Ellen’s Gold Dipped Necklace.


Our night was complete when none other than Super Mario himself stopped by our Red Door! We were a little star struck to say the least!

We hope you all had a great time at the workshop. The Games Master Exhibition is on until the 20th April 2015. Get along for some gaming fun.
