Has anyone purchased or thought about purchasing some skins?

I ordered some samples from Dan's Decals, and if I like them enough I'm definately going to order a complete set. http://www.dansdecals.com/detail.aspx?ID=4. I'll post some pics of my 360 if/when I get the skin.

If anyone else has already purchased one, mind posting pics?

Yeah, I probably won't apply them to my controller(s)-- I dont like them too much either. But the console ones look good IMO.

www.decalgirl.com

be very carefull when ordering from this site...read a good amount of complaints over at TeamXbox.com about how full case skins dont align properly....

as for skins themselves idk, i just dont like them just because you might run into bubbles and then when fixing that the skin becomes less adhesive (right word?) so then u have to add more glue...ill get a full case mod once my 1 year warranty is up from teamxtender

Damn i was going to order one of these skins as they look awesome, and shipping is kinda cheap too considering its from the U.S. what is a full case mod? does it involve completely replacing the entire casing?

Minty
02-22-2006, 08:57 AM
no, its just a vinyl that you stick over your box

scoobydiesel
02-22-2006, 09:07 AM
cheaper then airbrush but not as unqie(sp) also usly covers all the system and contorlers at times, they dont do anything to your system you just place the skin on it

Minty
02-22-2006, 09:30 AM
air brushing all the way ;)

scoobydiesel
02-22-2006, 09:40 AM
yeah if i was to do it id go airbrush, i plan to do some faceplates airbrush style(custimized Jaguar one...sweet)

Minty
02-22-2006, 08:21 PM

and work on the design

scoobydiesel
02-23-2006, 07:55 AM
told ya to do the big Mint on the top of the system ;) thatd be swizzle

Minty
02-23-2006, 05:54 PM
i will do, bit was thinking of what to do on the front and the controllers. think for the controllers blacck and grey marble effect with Kameo on one and her sister on the other..... dunno bout the faceplate

SpideR NY
02-23-2006, 09:56 PM
I wouldnt do a "theme" on the controllers or xbox that way you can switch faceplates and it will still match that system. I love my airbrushed faceplates, just wondering how would you go about airbrushing the system? I mean how can you make sure no paint gets inside it?

I've been meaning to get the blue one but, I havnt seen it anywhere yet. I'm waiting for Play.com to get some good ones too.

Minty
02-23-2006, 10:27 PM
just ordered the backup plan of ta black and blue twin pack.

i think it would be pretty cool having a small kameo etc on the bottom of the controller, which would kinda match the faceplate. that will be black with a red and orangedecor, and then Minty on it graffiti style. and then my msn mint-e logo on the top....

Should I trust EBAY for facplates? I've seen a couple that look fake and are dead cheep.

I want to get a really nice skin, but i think for me its too early in the consoles life span, and because its not possible to keep customizing youd be really stuck with it for a while. But nice anyway, enjoy.

Skins are not faceplates are they ? They go around the console ???

Minty
02-24-2006, 06:47 PM
only the faceplate though... substance is right, its going to be something your stuck with for awhile


but yeah, skins go round the whole console- just some cheap vinyl basicallys

Tron
02-24-2006, 08:29 PM
yeah talking about skins... is there any additional worries about proper ventalation?

g4m3r7ag
02-24-2006, 09:32 PM
they should have vent holes where the regular vent holes are, but that would make sense so they probably dont

Minty
02-24-2006, 09:33 PM
the ones ive seen do, like on decalgirl i think. just think skins look tacky tho

Skins are gay....

I may do a HOUSING, but not a skin. I can airbrush too so that's always an option for me.

What I would do is buy a plain jane housing off ebay and then paint it. My airbrush is external mix so I use enamel based paints. This would cause the dry times to be around 1 month to dry completely. If I tried sooner, the heat would warp the paint.

I plan on doing so in the future, I will definatly post pics of the work!

You can actually get a really good finish if you know how to spray a can and you prep the body correctly.

OMG this thread is ancient.

06-07-2010, 10:16 PM
I'd maybe like to buy a skin. I've never really thought about it. The 360 design is so simplistic when it comes to the color palette. Just the plain white. I wouldn't get one that has a whole lot of graphics on it. Like a flag or w/t.

I'd get a solid color. Black, blue, something like that.

Edit: Didn't realize how old this thread is. I normally try to refrain from pulling back dead threads.... Don't really see the point.
