Steampunk Gameboy Color by Kiwa-Ku Steampunk Gameboy Color by Kiwa-Ku
This was a very long but very fun project. It was filled with drama, tragedy, spilled paint, and several long nights. I used as many recycled and local parts to paint and create this item. My original gameboy actually broke before I could finish the painting, so a good friend of mine gave me her old gameboy to use. Taking out the broken card of the old gameboy and replacing it with the new one, I was able to finish the project and it looks lovely. Very proud of this one.

Local Materials Used;
Gameboy Color
Metal and plastic lid
Watch Parts
Rub-n-Buff paint
Random metal bits and scrap
Copper wire

I wonder what happens if you play Chrono Trigger on it. Probably something within the confines of the golden ratio of this master-piece of a gameboy to Chrono Trigger.

Sadly, I only had my Hot Wheels vidja game to try it out, the world may never know.
