Back in 2009, I commissioned the amazing Melita Curphy, aka "Miss Monster", to paint a Nintendo DS case for me. I had just bought my DS and a blank black case a few months before, and when I ran into her at Anthrocon that summer I knew I had to ask now or lose the chance. She did an AMAZING job putting her Tentatiger original creature on the front & back of the case, and I have gotten SO many comments about it over the years! I really can't thank her enough to doing this for me.
Unfortunately, I've come to the point now where I've got no choice but to let it go. I haven't touched my DS in years (apart from recently making sure it still works, which it does), and I also find myself with some less-than-forgiving debts to pay. I really hate to part with it, but I think it would be much better off in the hands of someone who will use it and enjoy it, than for it to sit in my drawer.
This really is one-of-a-kind; Mel doesn't really do commissions anymore, and the Tentatiger is an older creature of hers that I don't believe she's done anything new with for a number of years (though correct me if I'm wrong). I imagine many fans and collectors of MissMonster's work would be interested in it for that alone. Considering this was handled and used for years, it's in excellent condition; the only thing that shows any wear is her signature in the bottom left of the back case piece (a simple "MEL09!"), and even that is still readable.
I'm also adding in a few old Nintendo DS games. Unfortunately, I don't have cases for all of them, just the two pictured. They will be wrapped and packaged securely though, to whomever decides to buy the set.
I would like to sell everything shown above as a full set. I will be willing to break things up and sell items piecemeal ONLY if whoever wants the Tentatiger case doesn't want the rest. That is the prime item; If you would like only the case, you're welcome to buy just the case. However, if you want only the games (or one or two of them), I want to wait and make sure that whomever ends up purchasing the Tentatiger case doesn't want the entire set.
If you're interested, please e-mail me at LizardbethArt@gmail.com. I'm hoping to get at least $250 for everything together, but feel free to make me an offer with whatever you feel is appropriate. If I get multiple offers, it'll go to the highest one. I'll keep offers open until the 24th, and let the highest offer know then. Serious offers only; only make an offer if you are able to pay the full amount + shipping by the 26th.
Thanks, guys. ^_^ Sorry today's post was essentially a quasi-yard sale post, but it's going to a good cause. Namely keeping me fed so I can work on... well... other things. Yes yes.
