    Hello fellow modders, this is my first posted project on bit-tech.net i just wanted to give you a little background information about this project.

    The project was a birthday gift to my girlfriend, well one of many. One day she was kidding around saying man i wish i had a modded computer and i knew that she liked hello kitty so i just made one =).

    Keep in mind the case i suppose to look like a vintage suite case with a industrial twist.

    on the the pictures.

    Starting off i needed to construct a motherboard tray that would fit in the case,

    [​IMG]

    just took one out of one of my old crappy atx cases and copped it almost in half both ways.

    [​IMG]

    See the pile of wood well thats my case,

    [​IMG]

    Sorry about the no progress on the actual case build but i would have chopped one of my hands off if i was holding a camera running this thing through the table saw =X.

    [​IMG]

    as you can see the box was constructed then ran thew a table saw to get the exact fit that i wanted, becuase the case will swing open and have a lock on top.

    [​IMG]

    I caulked all the edges before i put the final coat of paint on the inside

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    painted

    While the Paint was drying A buddy and I decided to hook up some projectors in the living room for the Molten Core Raid at 7 AM EST. ROFLMAO look at the setup..

    WEll after we wiped on ragneros I continued to mod ripping apart my GF's HP Pavilion.. The results are as follows:

    [​IMG]

    Motherboard with a new CPU cooler and alligned on the new motherboard tray.

    Oh look at the l33t cuteness with this hello kitty magnet i found on dreamkitty.com it will be the leetest icon / emblem on the fan grill

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    A beta shot of what will become here computer at this point its kinda hard to know what i am going for but please bare with me people. the cd-rom drive and the from USB ports prep..

    [​IMG]

    and a test fit of the window with the etched hello kitty sticker

    [​IMG]

    BAM!!!1!1 the case is upohlstered to look like a vintage piece of luggage, the pattern is a quilted pink fabric that my girlfriend picked out... she has a pretty good eye for modding.

    [​IMG]

    Over all the case upholstury job turned out pretty good, there are a couple of places that i am unhappy with but over all it looks really nice.. (except inside corners but i will show you how i fix those in a bit...

    Not bad, however I dont like the choice of color. What was the rationalisation behind using wood tho.

    Color Choice is the two Favorite colors of my girlfriends, Pink ANd black, And these are the colors for the punk edition of hello kitty. Oh and the rationalization of using would is that it is eazy to upholster and This project is suppose to mirror a piece of luggage.Any who now that someone has posted i can continue my posting of pictures.


    Window is mounted and stuff

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Now to fix the inside of the edges that could not be upholstered,
    What i am doing in this picture is taking leather in strips and using upholstery tac's to hold it into place

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Next i am going to make a fan grill,

    [​IMG]

    yes that is ducting vent from an air conditioner.

    [​IMG]

    grill made now to paint and mount it

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Its hideous. lol, sorry.
    But you are doing some fantastic modding! Really nice modding! I just dislike the color and pattern. But it does fit the theme you are going for very well!

    Good luck with the project!

    PS: You and your friends are quite spoiled.. having +PROJECTORS+ and everything..

    Dang, that is a pretty well-made setup. Looks very clean.

    And damn, I am jealous of the raid setup. What res did the projectors go? What server/guild? Any decent drops?

    Those projectors go up to um 1280x1024, Server is Burning Legion American / Horde guild name is Pro. http://www.pro-guild.com/ And thats a molten core raid so the drops are the best in the game =). Hunter epic leaf dropped, 40 dps gun, core hound tooth and some night slayers i believe, and tons of like good resist gear and shizzle... peace

    You have more than one on the go? :D j/k

    I quite like this case. Obviously I wouldn't have the same colour, what with being chisel of chin and whatnot, but it's well thought out and executed.

    nice!
    can you edge-light the window to make the engraving show up more?
    and I wonder if white lights might go a little better - sorry!

    Ya personally i would have rather used white or red / pinkish lights but i already had 4 blue led fans and two 4 inch cathodes from a previous project that i didnt use so why spend the cash.. But ya the case has allot of work still, mostly detailed work like the lighiting for one 2. a handle to complete the luggage feel, 3. feet mabie LED lighted Plexi ? 4. mabie el wire to light the plexi better shrug i got the cd-rom mounted today and I took it to her so she could work on her resume on it, and SHE FLIPPED OUT !!!! so that is always a good sign, she love its more than anything... she feels so special that i built it from scratch just for her.. She is totally in love with it. so all is well in my house... Loving tonight =)
