GIANT NINTENDO 64 CONTROLLER RAWR!!!! by MitchellMBird GIANT NINTENDO 64 CONTROLLER RAWR!!!! by MitchellMBird
Giant Nintendo 64 controller made out of cardboard. Used spray paint for body, gray areas, and for start and A button. Acrylic paint used for B and C Buttons. White primer house paint used for joystick.

Took 3 weeks about 6 hours a day to do. PHEW! Did this for my sculpting class, everyone seemed to really like it ^^! We were restricted only to the use of cardboard to teach us the limitations on medium.

I also did the plug in part and the Z-Button, I'll post pictures of that later on plus the R+L buttons are done if you can't see them.

Tools:
30cm. Ruler
mechanical pencil and sharpie
cement glue
and only cardboard(usually just taken from the cardboard recycling bin)
and 3 cans of black car glossy spray paint :) lol

Dimensions:
1.2 X 0.8 Metres approximately.
took about 16 dollars in cost to make.

Looks really neat. What are the dimensions of it? Did you use any templates or just eyeball it? I'm really impressed.

Oh yea, i did some templates but as time ran out i was forced to "eyeball" it.

the d-pad, the buttons and the joystick all had templates and were measured proportionately.

the nintendo logo, i measured and cut. this picture doesn't do it justice with the detail.

everything else. slapped together in a matter of days, lol and i had to use shitty glue to top it off. so it took up alot of time.

hope this answers your Q's.
