    I made my own version of my 3ds. This is all doable at home, and even better you can UNDO it without any damage at all to the system.

    Take Some Gold Wrapping Paper, any type. Make sure its metalic, so that it doesn't absorb water. Expensive ones 5.00 usually are tough and dont rip.
    Cut the paper to normal 8.5 x 11 size normal paper. Feed it in your printer. Print whatever you want, I used photoshop of an image of the hyrule crest.
    once i was happy with the size i used real gold paper.

    Then i cut it out, with an exacto knife/scissors. Then used that zip dry glue to glue directly on the surface of the unit.

    Now... everyone is like ON THE UNIT? dont worry this stuff is awsome, it rubs right out with your finger, so any glue around the edges that bleed, come right off like rubber cement. I made a few mistakes, but no sweat. I can even remove the whole thing later if i decide to change it.

    Here are some pictures of the finished product

    AHha guess your right about the upside down thing. I like it so when its closed i can see the logo. like im opening a treasure chest haha.

    I guess i can do them the other way thanks for the idea!

    I was looking for like a week for stickers to put on, but they all suck!

    ravippe: Yeah, it all depends on what You think is up and down, and when you decide to watch it [​IMG]
    I would put it the other way around, just because (like any laptop with a logo on the lid) people will see it when I use it more than I will watch it closed [​IMG] but it's just a matter of oppinions [​IMG]

    Edit: made it more clear what I meant

    Awesome! Now I have to think of something that would look good in Gold/Tin. Super Sonic maybe? Cat eyes? Winged Dragon of Ra?!? (That would be sexy, but cutting it out would be a paiiiiin.)

    Good to know you can remove the whole thing if you need to.

    If it was me, I would have went with the plasticky foily wrapping paper instead of the actual paper stuff.

    Still looks completely awesome, and I am so jealous right now, it makes me want to go buy a 3DS with my rent money.

    So I put it in my pocket for like 5 hours and i noticed that the ends started to peel up!

    hahaha i knew that would happen so i was like f#$ it, so i took it off I can easily make a new one.

    I was thinking to make one out of a better material like a vynil material or a thin plastic type material so it glues better without the CURL up on the ends

    Ill be posting some new ideas soon when i go to michaels craft store!

    And dudes it wicked easy, just print it out through any printer, and cut it out with an exacto. I took about 1 hour to cut it out.

    do it at work! ahhaha sometimes I do when im bored dealing with morons on the telephone.

    The wrapping paper i used was actually waterproof i ran it under the tap to see, but it still was a bit flimsy for long term use.

    Hard to find materials in gold! I found some ducktape they sell at walmart in the plumbing isle its called.... umm Metallic duck tape

    it sticks really good and is perfectly silver and shiny! maybe someone could use that for a sonic logo or something else. Cut stick done...!

    Or maybe a silver Triforce logo!

    mmmmm
