People have covered themselves and their possessions in animal skins since the dawn of time, but one gamer has taken things to another level by crafting an alligator-themed Xbox 360. Gamer dfw monkie - somehow we’re guessing that’s not his real name - has published pictures (http://forums.llamma.com/viewtopic.php?t=17211) of his creation detailing how he transformed the beige box into an alligator.

Monkie describes himself as a graphic artist from Dallas who's inspired by Salvador Dali and other surrealists. The modder used a putty material to mould the alligator skin design over the console’s body and faceplate. He then covered the putty over with “paint and clear-coat” to give the ‘skin’ that “glossy wet look”.

The console’s power switch, around which the infamous Red Ring of Death is known to appear, has even been covered over with a fake alligator’s eye.

Hopefully game and film discs won’t be eaten by razor sharp teeth when you open the tray though.

That thing looks kinda creepy. :D
I think I remember a Millennium Falcon skin for the original Xbox. I always liked that one.

I'm got to admit, it looks pretty cool. :D

I guess the owner will be pretty upset if and when the console breaks down (which it probably will)...

Not a lot of good, I would imagine. On the flipside though, it should you be pretty much bulletproof now.

That's very pretty. At least it's not real alligator skin. That would be unfortunate.
