This is a fully functional Gameboy color! The front and back have been carefully decoupaged with hand cut images from Nintendo Power magazine. Link with Rosa and the Subrosians on the front, Din the Oracle of Seasons on the back. The power LED has been changed from dull red to a vibrant green.
I think my favorite part of this project, and hardest to convey, is the gold line that runs between the two case halves. I tried to get a picture (the last picture), but it's cooler in person I guess. This used to be a dark purple GBC, btw. I love purple, but it seems to be the most common GBC and I wanted to drastically change it.
A note... This is hand made. The images were cut and applied by hand, the paint is auto spray paint. There may be minor imperfections as such, but I've tried to take the best pictures I can. This is the first item I've made expressly for Etsy, I wanted it to be something I'm proud of.
One more note... Although I have layered a special protective sealant over the paint and images (a very smooth sealant, not tacky like some sprays), Gameboys were not meant to be painted! The natural oils in a human hand will destroy any paint, given enough time and wear on a surface. Keep that in mind before you put 1000+ hours of Pokemon in on this GBC!
Thank you for looking!
