My ex-colleague-turned-customer requested a Goomba iPhone Case for his iPod Touch, well not so recently. He actually mentioned that he'd like one last September. Since then, I never got a chance to catch up with him. A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to grab some lunch with him and a few other ex-colleagues and so I took the opportunity to fulfill his long-awaited request.
I was working on several of the Panda iPhone cases at the time when lunch plans were getting finalised and since my brain was wired into the Panda design, I wondered if I could translate the Goomba into the same case design. I cleared it with its eventual owner and he was open to receiving an unorthodox Goomba iPhone Case. So I got to work and voila, a new look for Goomba!
Like the Panda iPhone Case, this Goomba case was made using 2mm felt (except for the eye/eyebrows, that was thinner felt) and has a tab closure to secure the top opening. No loving cuddly arms like Panda though, because I've never ever met a Goomba with arms...
It's pretty different to my original Goomba iPhone Case, but yet still has that Goomba personality!
Which do you like better? Rectangular fabric Goomba or oval-ish felt Goomba? Which would Mario prefer to jump on? ;)
