I fell asleep yesterday while blogging! xD ((Beeing a blogger is hard work)) Haha! Kidding! So I’ll just post this today on yesterdays date! Here is what I was upto yesterday:
I’ve cleaning all day and took the opportunity to do some digging in my collection! I found alot of fun stuff and ended up just playing around instead of cleaning! xD When you collect there is so much stuff you forget you even have it! Just taking a dive into my contollers and I found so much stuff! 😀 And while on the topic of controllers I found my Resident Evil 4 Chainsaw Controller and realized I never actually opened it before! :O So of course I took it out for a spin! ;D It was awesome! I have to try playing the game with it some day! ^^ The rest of the night I was just goofing around with all the stuff I found! Night well spent! Haha! xD I also realized I never showed this on here (I think) but I bought another Assassins Creed Codex Ed.! An opened one! xD So now I have 2, one to keep sealed and one for show! Like a true collector! Haha! But it was really cheap so It didn’t matter! ((Thanks again to Monkeypuss on instagram for giving me the tip about it! 😀 )) I love it! It’s so pretty! ^^ I haven’t found a good place for it yet though, it’s kinda big and my gaming shelves are kinda full! xD Oh well, I’ll figure it out! ;D
Did you play so much you broke your controller? Don’t throw it away! Make it into art! 🙂 Here’s what you need:
• One picture frame
• A controller of your choice
• A piece of fabric or paint
• A paint spray can with the color you want 🙂
You need a frame with a bit of room between the glass and the back of the frame. I found this square frame on Ikea called Ribba whitch was perfect!
Take off the back of the frame and either paint or glue fabric over the whole surface and let it dry! I did the glue fabric version 🙂
Then take your controller and cut off the cord, I pushed the leftover piece of cord back inside with a screedriver.
Clean the controller from dust and hair and dry it! Now it’s time to paint it! 🙂 I used spray can paint in a silver color cuz I love silver ^^ (don’t spray inside, it’s kinda smelly!) 😛 And for the best result spray thin layers several times and let it dry a bit rather than trying to spray it in one go! So pretty! 😀
When the glued fabric/painted picture back has dryed take a ruler and locate the middle of the back piece, take the pretty controller and glue it to the center in the desired angle. (Either to be hung as a square or twist it to a diamond shape) I removed the hook on the back and glued it back on in one of the corners to make mine hang as a diamond shape instead. Let it dry and then put it back into the frame! Done! 😀
This is the first and probably the simplest “do it yourself” I’m making! =) There are alot of cool gaming keychains out there. But you can’t have your keys full of keychains! Even if you really wanna! How will you find your keys?? 🙂 But worry not, I have the solution! The only thing you need is keychains, earring hooks or a necklace chain! Just remove the keychain ring and put on the earring hooks instead! Or hang it on a chain and make a necklace! DONE! 😀 I’ve made alot of gaming jewelery this way. Make them for yourself or as a present to a friend or girlfriend! ^^ Good Luck!
