Happy to announce that this set of controllers will be added to the ebay auction for the ‘Backlit Mega Man 25th Anniversary NES’! Custom NES Guy and I just finished these up! Hope you like them.
The front half of the controllers are dark blue, the back half is light blue. Black lines run along all the edges to help the color really pop. The A and B button are also painted dark blue. I even created custom overlays to match the Mega Man console design while trying to remain true to the look of the original overlays.
What do you think?

As most of you probably know, I teamed up with Custom NES Guy a short time ago and created a one-of-a-kind backlit NES in honor of the Blue Bomber. This Thursday, June 13th, it will go up for sale on eBay under my seller ID: platinumfungi4ijw
This will be your ONLY CHANCE to grab this fully functioning PROTOTYPE design.
Stay tuned for more updates! I’ll be posting them every day until the auction begins
I have been thrilled by the amazing feedback I’ve received about this custom NES since I went public with it earlier this month I thank each and every one of you that have sent me messages, ‘Liked’ my Facebook page, and shared my work on your websites and with your friends. It truly means a lot to me. Your positive comments and support keep me motivated to continue creating NES art.
Due to popular demand, I have decided to auction it off in about two weeks. I will keep you updated as we get closer to the date, and eventually post the link to the auction both here and on my Facebook page. I will also soon publicly show the as of yet unseen custom controllers that go along with this system! I hope you all enjoy them.
Stay tuned, and THANK YOU ALL for your support!

The year is 2013, and a super robot named Mega Man is celebrating his 25th anniversary. In honor of this special occasion I present to you this one-of-a-kind NES. From one Blue Bomber fan to another, I hope you enjoy my creation.
See lots of photos and the back story after the break.
For those of you who aren’t familiar, the Oculus Rift is a brand new virtual reality head mounted display. The developer kits are shipping out right now, and thanks to my connections at Hackaday, I was able to try one out. In short, it’s amazing.
When I first put the Rift on, it was a bit jarring to try and adjust my eyes to the virtual environment. You can actually see each individual pixel. Fortunately my mind started to adapt rather quickly, and before I knew it I was eagerly wandering around seeing what all I could do in my new little world. It does a nice job of covering your field of vision. Only when I looked directly down at my feet did I even start to notice the edge of the display. Looking around feels perfectly natural, but it’s surreal to look back over your shoulder and see the gaming world. For me, that was one of the coolest experiences – your mind expects to turn around and see the physical room you’re in, but the display just moves along with you.
Adding the Razer Hydra takes the experience one step further. It’s a dual set of Wii Nunchuck like controllers that allow you to use your virtual hands. In the demos I played, I could pick things up, bounce a basketball, toss a baseball from one hand to the other, etc. It felt a little awkward, but with some practice I started to get the hang of it.
Anyone who’s been following my work has probably noticed I’ve been MIA for awhile. I had several amazing opportunities pop up over the past few months that I just couldn’t say no to, one of which was being a Department Head on a feature film!
Until the film comes out I can’t discuss many details, but here are a few tid bits for anyone who is interested. The name of the film is ‘Treehouse‘. It’s a psychological thriller. I was hired as the Costumer Designer and was also in charge of the entire Wardrobe/Costume Department. It will come out to theaters probably about a year from now.
As a longtime Metroid fan, I had a blast making this Metroid Hatchling. Considering Samus Aran is a bounty hunter, I wanted the containment canister to look very worn and battle damaged. Clean and pristine just don’t seem fitting for someone battling monstrous aliens and dodging laser fire 24/7.

A few weeks ago, Nintendo invited Youtube group mikeNgary , a group that I create props and costumes for, to be one of only 50 teams in the world to participate in a 10 day video challenge. They sent us a FREE Wii U and a few games which we then had to play and find inspiration from to create a short video. Here’s what we came up with:
If you haven’t seen my work in person yet, now is a great time. More of my art was just put on display at the South Side Vintage Stock in Springfield, MO. Currently there: a Metroid Power Suit helmet, a Metroid Hatchling, a custom Legend of Zelda NES, and a Pokemon Pokeball.
