Skinning A Laptop

24 May

This is a laptop skin I got from Ms. Shirley a while back. I put it in to illustrate what it looks like. I actually made a mistake in cutting so I had to contend with a plain top but had I planned ahead, I would have known better how to cut it to fit. For all those who keep asking Ms. Shirley if it’ll fit your laptops, it will. The skin comes in one size- 15 x 10-1/2 inches and you need to cut it to the size you prefer. I have a 12-inch laptop so I needed to trim more of mine.

The skin is vinyl, thicker than a G-mask (I just peeled my G-mask off because I got bored with the flowers), and is repositionable. It doesn’t leave any residue. I got two skins, the pink one and one of the Eva-Air designs. I’m thinking of putting the other skin on my Guitar Hero guitar.

    Yes, for the Wii (wheee!!!). I’m getting quite good at it too, already doing songs on medium and hard levels. And I rock hard!!! 🙂

    So cute, I like it….

    Tom, I wish I can customise one for my laptop in the past and I have been looking for a good one.

    Thanks for sharing this with us and I will head over to to create one for myself.
