I got bored the other day and decided to customize the look of my Xbox with a skin and Swarovski crystals. Im debating doing our other console (a more neutral look, not so girly). I would love to see what the rest of you have come up with for your consoles. :) Also, have any of you had issues w skins for your consoles? :p

Thank you. :) I usually keep the console upright but the crystals don't get in the way when placed horizontal.

I'm too bad at art to even attempt something like this. I have to customise mine by buying the limited edition ones haha.

I can't take credit for the fire flowers on my console, that's a skin from decal girl.com. The limited edition consoles are pretty cool though....if there was a Fable 3 limited edition, I would be all over that. Lol

I like to make custom skins for the 360 and controller skins. Yours looks pretty cool :D

That's pretty sweet! I've often wanted to put a custom decal on my console, just never taken the plunge lol.

Definitely pretty sweet. I've always wanted to modify the console with clear plastic, lights, etc. but didn't want to risk jacking something up. Once again, awesome job!

Same here. I'm always worrying about overheating issues so this just irks the hell out of me.

Looks really cool! But I'd never have the luck to pull it off...unless I was going for the "air bubble" look.

I just put stickers on mine. I don't have to post a picture to assure you yours looks better, but I'm nowhere near artistic enough to do that. :p

That looks pretty cool. I suck at art so no customizing for me.


iBuzz the guy has a screen on the Xbox? Wow does it over heat or anything? Thats pretty sweet if it works.

I drew on an old faceplate. It was an Assassins Creed design. It ended up ok and I had fun doing it,.

Yes sir he does. He never complained of overheating and he has done some awesome case mods.

Here's a WIP Borderlands 2 case. He has stopped updating fans, so not sure if he's moved on to something else or just gave up altogether.

FYI, that's not the final colour of the console. That was before it got sprayed.

That looks neat :) I want to spray mine metallic blue but dont because I'd probably make a total hash of it, so it stays boring old black

I have a touch of OCD...the air bubbles drove me nuts but decalgirl.com uses "channels" under the skin for air to escape (and helpful so as to not overheat the console). :) I see you're a vet, thank you for your service. :)

PM me if your serious about wanting your Xbox done (or I can at least tell you where to get supplies, how to do it :) )

Any artistic venture I undertake is doomed to failure before it even starts. Your xbox looks pretty cool though.

It's just a sticker he slapped on and glued some small rocks to it. Anyone can do it.

You are right most people can do something like that, if they have the time and patients to do so with amazing results like this Xbox. Since I do no not see a multitude of posts like this, then I am going to assume that it is not as simple and quick as you make it seem.

I myself, thinks that this looks pretty darn cool. Thank you for the share.

Nice case reminds me of those Xbox 360 cases that Llamas adventure would sell.
