Radioactiveboy: Custom Gameboy by miss--scarlet Radioactiveboy: Custom Gameboy by miss--scarlet
A gift I made for my good friend and band-mate. [link] Started with an original grey Nintendo Gameboy and painted it. His favorite color is orange and they never made orange Gameboys. So I went with the Radioactive theme because he loves games like Wasteland and Fallout. I acquired the case in a trade for a Triwing screwdriver. It is an Official Nintendo Gameboy display box that was yellowing with age, so I painted it to match the unit. It was really fun to make. The black/orange splatter design screen cover is an aftermarket replacement - totally '80s awesomeness. The radioactive sign was a stencil I made, and the little display card inside the box was the final touch. The Gameboy is fully functional with no missing pixels! Yay! I want to make more now. Thanks for looking.

I never really got into Gameboy until SP came out (always been a PC gamer myself), but damn that's cool!

Made of pure win. I'm just now getting into stencils, just finished a Pipboy thumbs-up one. :3 So, you just used spraypaint, or something else?

How I would have loved one of those...
Although I wouldn't for the life of me go back to playing an original Game Boy, I love the series, and I love the personality this look for yours gives Game Boy. +fav
