About

Geek with a creative streak

Hi I'm PuffyTheSlayer A.K.A. Rhi Louise & I am the geek with a creative streak!

PuffyTheSlayer is at its core a pixel art shop; I also make items from polymer clay & re-purposed toys - because... well... the truth is... I'm childish ;)

Born in the early 80's in a small town in Wales; I attended a welsh language school; I have dyslexia; so i hope you will forgive my poor spelling & grammar (spell checker doesn't always pick up my mistakes).

Following my studies in drama & media performance, I returned to Wales and worked as an actress & TV/film extra; landing a few walk-on's & featured roles on a variety TV shows including Torchwood, Casualty & Pobol-Y-Cwm; I once had a screen test for Doctor who (and got exterminated) I even made a film with an all star cast.
I moved to London in 2010; for a multitude of reasons.

My work is a fusion of my creative side & my geek side. I opened PuffyTheSlayer in 2013; I had noticed a distinct lack of handmade geeky hair accessories; and I figured... if no one else is making them... maybe I should!

PuffyTheSlayer has grown over the last year; to include a much wider variety of items; but my core values haven't changed; making geeky things for geeky people!

Whats with the name? I hear you cry... well as I say; I am a geek; a gamer geek to be precise & PuffyTheSlayer is my online gaming 'handle' so it seemed perfect as a shop name! Why is PuffyTheSlayer my gamer handle? Well that's a whole other story!

Pixel art is basically the making of something in an 8-bit pixelated style. Remember how computer games used to look back in the 80's & early 90's? The graphics for retro games were 8-bit; console/computer processing at the time was limited; so designers had to work within the 8-bit limitation. The 'limitation' became a positive; it created an iconic look & feel that is still used & loved today.

My work is inspired by my life & my interests; I make things that I want/need/use; I aim to make practical, usable & fun things for my fellow geeks.

My process: I make an image using the beads & board; then i fuse the image to make my 'decal'
Sometimes I manipulate the decals to change their shape/appearance
Sometimes I attach a finding
Each item has its own specific process: so i wont bore you with the details.

I have a large selection of beads (over 80 colors in stock at all times) & 'peg-boards' I take creative licence within the title of pixel art; I am not always able to create the images I want, to the scale I need on a square board; so I use other boards to make the perfect piece.
