Steampunk Hero by The-Pink-Baka Steampunk Hero by The-Pink-Baka
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.

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.

That rocks. Very nice! Isn't it annoying to play, though? With the bits sticking out near the wammy bar and such?
Reply
:iconthe-pink-baka:
The-Pink-Baka Featured By Owner May 20, 2009
Not at all! Those parts are made of grunge board, which is really flexible. It's almost more cloth-like than paper, so it moves with the wammy bar without creasing or tearing.

Actually the part I've had the most trouble with is finding the start/select buttons without looking down. Luckily they aren't used much. :p

And thanks for the fav! I'm glad you like it. :)

Ah! Alright. Good to hear, it'd be a shame if something this nice looking just sat in a corner collecting dust.

And you're very welcome ^^!
