Space Invaders Doormat

blog.dcdomain.org/2008/07/customized-space-invaders-doorm...

 

After many years without a doormat, I finally decided to join my neighbors and placed one in front of my door.

 

I almost went with a Barcode, or City Manhole Cover doormat but decided to ape my neighbor who has a small rubber brush doormat.

 

In its generic state, the doormat looks pretty boring. Fortunately the rubber pellets look like a grid of pixels and after some thought I decided on cutting some Space Invaders aliens into it.

 

Consideration was also given to Pac-Man and a Super Mario scene (that would have been painted on).

 

This Super Mario Goomba (kotaku.com/gaming/top/the-goomba-doormat-195322.php) mat is pretty sweet though, perhaps I should have gone for a Goomba or a Koopa Turtle. Next time...
