Gamershy - Custom Xbox Controller

Flutter's lover <3

1452 views

So, a couple weeks ago, I ordered all the parts needed to convert my boring black Xbox Controller into something more exciting, a Fluttershy controller! :squee::yay:

 

Well, today they arrived in the mail :yay:

 

So, I got all the parts out, pushed back my keyboard so I could have a work area....With Formare Fluttershy watching over the build, closely. :blush:

 

 

I also got the special screw driver I had, that's required to take a wireless controller apart.

Let the disassembly begin! :squee:

 

There's ALWAYS a screw hidden under a sticker, somewhere...on electronic devices. It also tends to void the warranty. I'm such a rebel.

 

(I've taken Xbox controllers apart before. So I knew it was there.)

The kit came with those black Trigger supports, but I couldn't get the white ones off, :angry: so I gave up and stayed with the white ones.

On with the triggers and analog sticks!

Starting to come together!

Oh yea...I had the idea of using a cutie-mark tattoo from one oft hose Enterplay card packs. I tested it out on the black shell...I gave a shot of clear coat over top of it as well. Not sure if I like the outcome, I'm sure it'd be brighter with the yellow background of the new controller shell.

 

But I've got some decal slide paper, for model cars. I may run that through my printer to print off her cutie-mark and try that, as it may work better.

 

 

Oh yea.... EXTRA PARTS! I'll be using them to make some other funky controller for my wired Xbox controller I use on my PC...it needs new analog sticks anyways...they're worn down to the bare plastic.... :blush:

 

Also, the seller seemed to of given me double of the yellow XABY and Home buttons. As well as a set of normal XABY buttons. Kinda odd. Oh well. more parts for me! :squee:

It turned out perfect!

 

You should put her cutiemark on the guide button

 

 

Thanks. Yea, I might. I just don't know how I would, lol. Just because it being so small. If I do do it,it'll be the yellow guide button I have.

 

 

 

Nice job man. That looks really good :)
