Blinging out your x-box controller

So my husband and I never had video games growing up. They simply weren't allowed. And that's how we'll do it with our children someday too... But for now we are child-less and I bought him an x-box kinect for Christmas. 

Now, I have never been into video games at all.... but I got my husband Halo Reach with his x-box and thought I would try to play it. We started and finished the game together in 8 hours over two days. I felt like SUCH a nerd! I won some serious geeky wifey points though!

Anyway, his controller is black and mine is white and I thought it needed to be a little more girly and a little more "me". So I blinged it out using my i-rock by Imaginisce and the new pink gems! I am so excited to share my little project with you! He's even considering letting me bling out his black one with the new black smooth glam rocks!

LOVE it! :) Now he really won't be grabbing my controller anytime soon!!!

Check out what the other ladies made on the Imaginisce Blog! I'm really sure you can enter to win something sparkly too!

Have a beautiful day and stay tuned for my Peachy Keen Guest Design week which should be going live in a few hours! :)

I love I decorated my guitar for guitar hero. I added bling and vinyl cut off my cricut. Now after seeing your controler might have to bling it! It kinda made my day to see I am not the only crafter here who is a gamer. On friday and sat I game online with all my friends. I dont talk about it much cause I thought what will they think of Feel little better now.

Where were you with this idea when all the kids still lived at home. hehehe
Fantastic way to personalize the controller and eliminate many 'debates' over who's is who's. You are so creative!!

How fun that you all play well together :) Doug and I used to play our Nintendo in a time B.G. (before girls). I think Hans needs his blinged out in black too.

Nice post. Xbox 360 controller rapid fire, you will have a distinct advantage with various games that you play. You will be able to fire faster. I like the way you start and then conclude your thoughts. Thanks for this information....
