Steampunk Nintendo Gameboy by Absynthe Design by azazel-is-burning Steampunk Nintendo Gameboy by Absynthe Design by azazel-is-burning
Completely hand made in wood and metal with antique watch parts, this one is totally functional and playable.

I typically do not alter the actual casing and buttons as that may interfere with the functioning of the device. So, it is a thin and light wooden sleeve, that is curved and carved to fit the body of the Gameboy Color. It is very light, adding about 200 gm of weight but feels nice in hand. The buttons may look deadly but i took special care to smooth out the edges and corners just enough to feel good while playing and not hurt. This is my first attempt at making a cladding for a device and all your appreciation and love has humbled me and inspired me to work harder and push the limit further. I WILL WOW YOU GUYS AGAIN :)

How much would you charge for one of these?  I may consider ordering a custom, if it wouldn't be a bother.  c:

I don't currently have the money, but could you please tell me about how much you'd generally sell one for so that I can start saving up?

Wow. That is absolutely amazing. I'm not usually into the Steampunk style (usually too many purely-decorative gears; drives me crazy), but this is really well-done. Excellent work. :)

Oh, and yeah, I'll chime in with the others. I'd love to see this thing being played. Or any of your items being used, for that matter. It's hard to imagine what they must look like in person.
