Steampunk Hero

This would have been up sooner, but I couldn't help trying it out first. It works! I didn't destroy it, even with all that paint.

Re-painted/decorated my Guitar Hero controller from its default red to a steampunk-esque look. I haven't gotten to read much in the genre, but I love the look. Sadly, I'm not tech-y enough to do anything cool like extra light-up parts or such. </3

Materials: spray paint, gear parts, grunge board, crackle paint, and a leather belt from a thrift store to replace the strap.

Gear parts, grunge board, and masks are from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology line. <3

I'll post a collage pic later in my scraps.

I had the same Idea I just haven't made it yet.To make it better maybe you should glue some steam gauges on it and some rivets.
The-Pink-Baka's avatar
Interesting idea. If you get around to making yours, you should link me so I can check it out. :)

Really cool! But how do you know which keys are which colors?
The-Pink-Baka's avatar
Well, I play enough that I never look down at the keys anyway - I know what order they're in. :p I'm just a dork that way.
