Introducing Kung Pow Pixel

Welcome to Kung Pow Pixel. This is a blog about crafts, gaming, wrestling, comic books and anything else interesting I come across!

I've started this blog not because I'm giving up on the EveningEmma blog, but because I feel that EveningEmma is very much about my crafts and I realise this is why a lot of people visit, to see my progress. I've often wanted to write about what games I've been playing or what I've been watching, but found it inappropriate content for EveningEmma. This blog will be less about what I'm creating and more about what else I'm doing or enjoying, just for fun.

A small selection of my collection.

I know that anybody who has read EveningEmma knows that I like games. Most of the stitches I do are gaming related, but I've never really talked about my gaming collection. As well as enjoying this generation's consoles (I own an Xbox 360, Wii, DS, and PSP), I also have a large collection of Game Boys and games, and because of my boyfriend's collection I get to play the older consoles, back to the MasterSystem/NES generation. My favourite gaming series are Pokémon and Kirby (the reason for the image above).

I am also a wrestling fan, WWE wrestling, that is. I am very excited about Wrestlemania, and disappointed I won't be able to watch it today. Fear not though, as I have the whole of Tuesday off together with my boyfriend to enjoy it and watch as many rewinds as we need. The match I'm looking forward to watching the most is Triple H versus the Undertaker and wonder whether Triple H will really be able to end the streak. My boyfriend is looking forward to seeing the Rock versus Cena, I know this because he keeps trying to do Rock Bottoms on me.

Comic books are another big hobby. Though I've not been able to keep up with them since moving to Roermond I was very much enjoying DCs New 52, reading Detective Comics, Batman and Robin and Action Comics. I also like Marvel's new Ultimate Spider-Man and the Ultimates, and often pick up Deadpool and Wolverine one-shots when I can.

So now you know a bit more about me and why I've started this blog. This doesn't mean I'll be abandoning EveningEmma, so I hope you'll follow and read both my blogs.


  1. Hi Emma, I'm a big Pokemon fan too (have you seen my latest stitchy start?) so I'll be sure to pop by this blog too :)
    Best wishes.

  2. Which Pokémon games have you got? Do you ever play any on your cute GameBoy Micro?

    1. Hmm, I've got Pokémon Red, Yellow, Sapphire, Pearl, HeartGold, and Black, as well as Pokémon Pinball, Pokémon Colosseum, and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team. I think that's all of them. Pokémon Black is probably my favourite.

      I have played on the GameBoy Micro, but it's run out of batteries, and I don't have a charger for it. I keep meaning to get one... The screen on the Micro is so lovely and crisp.
