Yuk it up all you want, boys, this is still a remarkable piece of craftsmanship.

Agreed, but still...this would be funny...if it weren't so very, very sad.

jjg: so are those real life sex dolls, but I still find them creepy too.

you know, i thought of at least seven things to say about this. none of which can capture my conflicted opinions.... somewhere between "what an amazing amount of dedication and meticulousness" and "fer god's sake, get outside and find yourself a girlfirend".

but still, remarkable...

This be a popular hobby.

Indeed. it's very well done, and who knows, something like this could become quite catchy if PC manufacturers pick up on it.

Just think of it, your own Garfield (tm) PC! The joy is endless...

If he spent half as much energy hitting on one.....

Hey, I want to make big stuff too. Does anyone know what kind of clay this guy's using and how he's attaching the styrofoam to the armature (and itself)?

I hadn't noticed on preview, but I think I picked the absolute best time to post that comment. Heh.

Yeah all artists just have too much time on their hands.

GOD, this is still floating around the web?
And it hadn't been posted to mefi yet? Lord above.

The guy apparently does these as commissions, so he didn't make the case for himself, but for a customer.

You all forgot "How does he turn it on?"

Not to take away from it being mefi worthy, but you are right, kavasa. boingboing did it earlier this week. Hell, I posted it the other day.

It's cool as a work of art but as a computer case it's totally lame. Where do you insert a CD or plug in the cords? It looks like you'd need to reach all the way around behind it. Way too much effort. I would have made it so you could push a button (her nose maybe?) and her chest springs open with double doors revealing the computer workings. Then it would be a cool computer case.

It's too hard to guess where?

No, it's much more fun to stick the disk into the slot....

What I think it is odd is the cardboard box the monitor is sitting on. I mean geez, all this effort into a computer box, (nice pun), and his monitor is on a cardboard box that is slowly imploding on itself?

Robot Johnny, upon reflection, my comment seems snarky. It was not meant to be. Thanks for posting this.

For those interested, the model for this was likely Hand Maid May, which is a very cute and enjoyable series.

brownpau - heh. thought that was a funny coincidence myself.
