    With all of the new developments on the scene, it's a great time to be a 3DS owner. What's a better way to celebrate that than showing off our consoles? Hop on and show yours off, and make sure to tell us anything that's special to you about it. I'll start!

    Case: 3DS vegan leather case from etsy

    Theme: Pokemon Yellow theme

    Mods: A9LH + Luma

    Additional accessories: A bunch of other cool plates that I like to rotate around

    What I like about it: Love the cool plates and even with the Black Friday releases there aren't many USA N3DS's around.

    Sure, why not.

    The consoles:

    [​IMG]

    All four have A9LH installed and each has a different "Low Poly" theme by Shiny from 3DSThem.es. Those themes are just amazing! In the top right of the image is the main case I use, it's The Legend of Zelda case from GAME in the UK.

    My main 3DS is my Red Monster Hunter Generations N3DSXL, but I tend to use my white N3DS as well. Depends on how I am feeling. I really need to get some new faceplates for it, though.

    I really like the Pikachu plates you have! Did you get them printed online?

    Nice! I love that Zelda case, I have it too but I use it for another console. Also love the stickers on the XL, and both the n3ds's look sick.

    The Pikachu plates I got from eBay, they get sold for a good price but the quality was pretty underwhelming (I had to sand them down in a few places to make them fit better) but I like them because they have the same design as my first 3ds.

    Edit: If you want to get custom plates printed, check out Nekoninjastore on eBay or Etsy.

    White N3DS, I got the ambassador coverplates off ebay for like 3 quid. The no-name clear plastic case is battered to shit, but still protecting the console until I get around to buying another case. Nice official pouch from Club Nintendo for travel.

    I'm in the middle of the 7-day waiting period, with my girl's NNID and games on my N3DS (From her 2DS). Once I transfer her shit again to her own N3DS on Monday, I'll be able to set mine up and show them off.

    The design is cool, but the quality isn't great. They don't fit properly, so I had to sand some parts down so they would actually fit without damaging the console. If you're going to get them, pick up a couple of nail filers so you can cut them down a bit.

    Loving that console! I wish they would sell it in the States.

    @Pacheko17
    Yup! You can pick them up here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/174904914/3ds-xl-hard-case-plain-color-plus-brown. They have them for every 3ds it seems.

    Wow, those plates look awesome! That sems like a really great deal. The pouch looks cool too, its simplistic yet stylish.

    That Aqua blue is pretty much a 3ds classic these days! And Menuhax still works great with Luma, so I guess no harm in sticking to it. I just upgrated cuz boot times.
    I love how you replicated the green Yoshi 3ds. Looks awesome!

    They did sell an NA compatible model in Singapore / UAE, but I imported the Japanese one and did a mobo switch from my majoras mask new XL (I wasn't forking over 350+ when I bought the new JP one for 250 lol

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Didn't realize how blurry the first one came out. eugh.
    Both are running 11.2.0-35U OFW, black one (my main) has soundhax and humblehax.
    Also, can anyone recommend faceplates that'd look nice on the black 3DS? Most faceplates seem to be white, or be lighter-colored. Best I've seen is a Zelda faceplate that's black, but that's it.
