The Official/Unofficial Memorial Celebrity Awareness Kikizo Faceplate Worklog For the Cure - Aug 05, 2008 16:09
If you've got one, can you send me a larger image/psd/whatever of the Kikizo K, and Kikizo logo itself?

Thanks.

What sort of resolution are we talking. I've got versions of the logo so big my PC can barely open them. How geeky is that.

Also, what's it for?

LOL! Me? Casemod. You're funny.

You guessed it.


What sort of resolution are we talking.

Final product will be five or so inches across. I just need something larger than the current logo. Somewhere between double that one, and full screen size will do (I prefer to go a little large, as I can always resize before I ship it off.

PM'd.

It makes sense. If you're drunk, your fine motor coordination goes down the shitter. Not so when you're high, at least not the potheads I know.

Ghost becomes more articulate when high, at least in writing anyway. It's actually really funny.

I doubt I'm more articulate (if so it's ony because I try more) but I tend to have better ideas, assuming it's a pure Sativa and not an Indica.

After about three months, and tons of email tag, I've finally gotten the stuff I need to finish this project. I did a test plate tonight, and the results look pretty sweet, if I do say so myself.

Methodology, and tons of photos later this week.

NOVEMBER 18th, 2008


One stock Xbox 360 Faceplate.


Buttons removed, face sanded.


I'm experimenting with using vynil stamps as decals, and so far, the results have been promising.


I dust the portion of faceplate I want the Kikizo logo on in black, to provide a black outline for the text.


I apply the decal, in preparation for painting the other two layers of color.


because I fouled up my decal request, the guy that runs these off for me sent me what I ordered, which was just the outlines, where I really wanted the entire deal, with just the lines cut. This means I had to tape up the outline of the plate by hand.

 It'll all make more sense when the results are final, some time next week, however, I did get excited and do a two-tone mock-up plate...

Pretty nice!  That faceplate and similar ones should be on all of the Xbox 360's at the next E3.  Talk about a cool promotion.

I think I like the first pic best, with the black lettering on white.

Thanks guys. It's not finished yet. The blue was a five minute job, (as you can see, the ROL plastic has been totally obscured) and the black on white was just a black decal on a white plate for sizing. The final plate will be blue, with black outlined white text, and it'll be shipped to somebody here. You'll get a PM if it's you.

If any of you guys are interested, I'll be doing custom plates after this period of my semester ends.

I forgot we had private messages!

So, Eddie, are you charging cash for these custom faceplates?  I've got Cheesaw License plates, might as well get a Cheesaw faceplate as well.
