What up ya'll

I'm not gonna front, I'm a part time geek. With that I like to modify shit that normally is just fine, what I can say I get bored easily. so with my game systems I pimp them so that they're not what you expect from the norm. It's an expensive habit but it's just another way to show your individuality, like putting 24s on bullshit cars.

So far I've done my PS2, GameCube, PSP, DS and will be doing my Xbox and Dreamcast very soon.

I'll post some pics of them after I get home to take some but lets just say that my PS2 and GC are bright enough to light a dark room :)

Here's an idea of the type of stuff I'm talking about.

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/file.jpg
PS2 with neon wire

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/deathbox.jpg
Xbox looking something like a disco

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/spikeps2.jpg
PS2 with LEDs and spikes...

these aren't mine, but some that others have done. I'm not that deep into it to actually fuck with the case, but mine are still pretty flashy

I feel you, Bloo. Modification is creativity. If I had the extra cash, I would definitly be doing shit like you. I'm feeling the LED's and Spike PS2, that's neat. Right now I'm taking Microsoft and Cisco certification courses, so once I'm done I want to make a raw ass computer modifying it like you've eluded to with your consoles. I have a friend that said he could mod X-Box games (now talking software side of things) and add say a '96 Bubble Caprice to GTA: San Andreas. Little off topic, but that's some hard shit too. You do anything like that? 1.

Alright, now that I got my shit worked out and my batteries are good in my cam I can show ya'll my shit.

First, my latest. Two tone PSP

Shot from the front

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/IMAG0520.jpg
Notice the Clear buttons and analog pad. They kinda look black but that's cause of the connectors underneath... You can really tell with the home button though

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/IMAG0522.jpg
and a side shot. show ya the front and back. White and Black. I plan on doing something similar to my DS in the next couple of weeks.

Let me know what you think

I can see their clear, just from that angle shadowed. That's tight, simple but cool not too much like the spiked-out PS2.. got anymore?

Bloo
02-28-2006, 02:44 PM
Next, my GameCube

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/IMAG0524.jpg
Sideshot, I just keep it simple. Same base due to the GameBoy Player, but I have a frosted clear case on top.

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/IMAG0526.jpg
Front shot

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/IMAG0527.jpg
Front shot of my GameCube on, I drilled holes in the ports so the lights would shine through

Side Shot with GC on.

02-28-2006, 03:14 PM
And last my PS2

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/PS2offstand.jpg
Got the PS2 standing. I put it in a clear case that I frosted with acrylic paint and skined in a chrome vinyl. So shiny you can do your hair in it :)

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/PS2offStand2.jpg
little more of a front shot standing

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/PS2standon.jpg
Front angle shot with the PS2 on. Got 3 Cold Cathode four inch bulbs running in this thing. I don't even wanna know how much this thing brings up my eletric bill.

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/PS2siton.jpg
PS2 sitting with the lights on. I put a bulb on the bottom so that the grill lit up too.

Well that's all for now. I only have my DS and Xbox left to go. I'll post pics of them when I get done with em eventually.

Bloo
02-28-2006, 03:15 PM
Yeah, I like to keep my stuff simple. Still enough to turn heads but not too major to where it looks too different.

Console Pimpin is even catching on with the stars

Not that I'm a fan of 50 Cent, but this is the custom DS 50 had Nintendo make for him.

Outside of the wack G-Unit logo, the camo case is pretty tight.

y0o how much did making that spiked PS2 with LEDs cost?

Bloo
03-11-2006, 04:01 AM
Not too sure actually cause that one isn't mine.

But if I had to break it down I'd say it was probably about...

$.75 per LED - looks like there's about 10 in there so $7.50

$1.00 per spike - so $6 there

$20 for a dremmel to do the cutting

$10 for the plexiglass

$16 for the wire, solder, soldering iron, and transistors for the lights.

So about $50 alltogether give or take.

The illest ones where the PSP and PS2. Thats pretty intersting hobby man...

Bloo
03-17-2006, 12:08 PM
how much will u charge sir?

Hmmmm... that all depends. There're are so many different things that you can do to a PS2 it's crazy so it's all a matter of what you want done to it and how much you have to spend...

I can do something like mine for you like $45 for the parts and whatnot. Or you can get some major work done for a little more. But mind you, I've never dremmeled or cut a case before so I don't know if I could do a window, at least not a decent looking one anyway :)

Bloo
03-17-2006, 12:17 PM
Damn! It just don't stop ya'll! Not even next gen is safe from pimpin!

Check out this Xbox 360 currently being sold on ebay.

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/ebay02.jpg

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/ebay03.jpg

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/ebay06.jpg

http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/BlooHook/ebay05.jpg

Now according to the auction this 360 has been pimped with

144 Green LED's
Blue-Purple-Green Colorshifting Paint
Black Metallic flake accent paint
Custom cut DVD drive cover
Custom windows and plexiglas
2x 40mm intake fans
2x 12v exhaust fans
Upgraded thermal paste on heatsinks

And you can have this sitting in your living room for the price of $1,099.99! Or you can bet against the others as the current bet for thig thing is $550

Now I'm into this kinda shit and it is a really good job... But I'm not about to drop $1,100 on something that only cost this man probably about $250 to do. That's one hell of a markup

Razorsharp
03-17-2006, 08:46 PM
where can i get it professionally done man?? u know any sites?

Bloo
03-18-2006, 02:47 AM
There used to be a few that did it. But most of the ones nowadays just sell the parts if they didn't just close down.. All I can think of now is Aheadgames.com but all they do is light instalation on the gamecube.

You're best bet is to find someone that's comfortable doing the cutting if that's what you really want, or just live without. Like I said, I can do everyting but. I actually think windows on the PS2 look cheesy. I rather just use a clear acrylic case.

Razorsharp
03-18-2006, 03:33 AM
yeah... a clear case for a slim ps2 would suffice for me... but how do i hook the LEDs up man... teach me... shiit... u got aim? PM your AIM... peace

Razorsharp
03-19-2006, 09:24 PM
y0o bloohook... i ordered a clear case and some LEDs something called XCM 240 something, but yeah... should be comin in 3 days... hopefully its not to hard... peace man

Awwww yeah! Time to resurrect my classic thread :yes:
Getting around that time again, yer boy Bloo's got some extra dough and I'm gettin the itch to pimp some more.

Next project's gonna be my DS Lite :) The boys at NDS-Central.com got some new shells droppin soon and I'ma cop one and do somethin special. But I'll get your opinions first.

I'm thinkin about getting a black shell and doing a two tone deal like with my PSP. I'ma call it The Oreo cause my DS will be white on the inside with the outside being black. So it'll look like this when it's closed
http://nds-central.com/images/coolblack-4b.jpg
And like this when it's open.
http://nds-central.com/images/ivorywhite-3.jpg
PIMP!! (not exactily but you get what I mean.)

But, they also are droppin a chrome shell.
http://nds-central.com/images/cro-3b.jpg
http://nds-central.com/images/cro-5b.jpg
http://nds-central.com/images/cro-1b.jpg
^^ Now I really liked this idea when I saw it. I was thinking aobut doing this instead. I'ma call it the Chrome Black Velvet. :yes:

So what do ya'll think? should I do The Oreo or The CBV?

Bloo
11-03-2006, 06:13 AM
Also, check out what the boys at Llamma.com did for Rockstar. they requested a custom X360 to show off their games in and this is what they got.
