Alligator Xbox 360: swamp thing?

Gamer dfw monkie - somehow we’re guessing that’s not his real name - has published pictures 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.

Who you lookin' at?

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…
