The amazing and talented Jeri Ellsworth was at Notacon 2009 last week, and among other things, was showing off this awesome Nintendo/C64 purse. There are no details on it, but I’ll see if I can’t get more info from Jeri.

From Rose White’s Flickr photostream. Thanks, Rose!


In response to my post, Jeri emailed me this video of her explaining her Nintendo purse. Thanks, Jer!

    Hi there — I’m delighted you came across this! The link for the photos is here:

    My cc-license in general is by-nc-sa, but of course I’m really happy to have these photos posted on the Make blog.

    Jeri can give you fuller details than I can, but the display here is from a portable DVD player. In addition to the Nintendo board she has in there, there’s a Commodore 64 board — just in case you need to do a little C64 work while you’re out and about. :)

    Hey Rose, sorry for the oversight. There was supposed to be a linkback to your photostream. We always do that, just spaced on it here. Fixed now. Thanks for the pics!

    I feel special that I’ve actually emailed Jeri a time or two online and she actually wrote back! She’s cooler than any rock/pop starlette or actress any day!
