3DS love and custom cases

If you follow this blog, it is no surprise that I adore my 3DS. I take it everywhere, I try to play it daily (at least for 5-10 minutes during my lunch break) and I try to convert friends to also get on the 3DS love wagon. Hey why not? It really is a fun handheld. Recently I gave my bff, Emily a pink one and even made her two Sailor Moon covers for her cute pink DS!



I started to make a few more Sailor Scouts cases!


My husband’s joystick broke recently. After a panic rush order of a new one he conducted delicate surgery but in 30 minutes he had a brand new joystick!! So proud of him on repairing his own 3DS! In celebration I also made him a new case – a Zinorge from Monster Hunter! Another amazing game if you have the chance to check it out!


Has anyone played Fantasy Life yet?? We (sisters, husband and myself) have been playing non-stop!!! I finally made Master in Paladin!

    You make so many pretty 3DS cases! I especially like the Monster Hunter one 🙂 I keep my 3DS in my purse, but sadly, I don’t get too many Streetpasses around here. I got a ton while in Japan though!

    @Cat, I bet you were getting tons in Japan!! The most street passes I get in Houston on a daily basis is probably 4-5. That is mainly through driving on the freeways and running around for lunch. Starbucks, best buy and funny enough Home Depot are Nintendo Zones so they usually spit out 10 through the relay option!!!

    How do you make 3DS cases? Are those for the XL model? I bought a pink one last Black Friday, and I am thinking to dress it up a bit!

    I’ve been looking at Fantasy Life, but it looks like the kind of game I will be very addicted to… But it looks so fun @.@

    @Jessica, I drew out my own designs on Illustrator! The Monster Hunter, Venus and the last Sailor Moon are XL models!!

    It is a really cute and addicting game!!! Let me know if you start playing it!!!

    Stumbled upon your blog while link hopping– first of all, AMAZING layout, secondly, I really like the Monster Hunter case too! Nice to find people who play, since it seems fairly scarce, at least where I live. My boyfriend plays Fantasy Life but I haven’t wanted to buy it until my current class finishes, since I know I’ll probably end up ignoring priorities… 😉

    @Michelle, Monster Hunter is amazing! We have about a group of 12-15 hunters that meet locally for dinner and hunt together. Although it seems that Fantasy Life has taken over XD the new MH should be amazing – I think it comes out in the spring but I am not too sure.

    Thanks for visiting me!!!! XD Always awesome to find another 3DS gamer!!!!! <3

    My 3DS comes everywhere with me, just in case of streetpass hits! The monster hunter case looks amazing, you’re very talented! I have bought any 3DS games in a while, as I’m saving up for Pokémon. I was addicted to Bravely Default for so long though, I nearly missed work one day playing it!

    If my joystick broke, there is no way I’d be confident enough to replace it myself! I’d have to send it to 3DS hospital!


    Mija Reply:

    @Uglyfish, yesh!!! I take my 3DS everywhere too!!! Bravely Default is amazing, I love the rpgs Nintendo has been bringing out! I am curious about Persona Q – I loved the series on PS2.

    Ah I wanted to send it off but my husband wanted to see what his DS guts looked like – he is brave ;o;

    I love those handmade cases. Especially the 1st and 5th Sailor Moon ones! They’re so pretty!

    Cute cases you made 😀 I saw your followed my blog so i decided to drop by ^_^ Do you use like a guideline for making them in illustrator? Like a pattern that fits the 3ds? :3 Would love to make some myself ^_^ I actually bought a custom made sticker for mine a few days ago (haven’t received it yet though). I love fantasy life and playing the hell out of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire atm ❤ ^_^

    I really want a 3DS but only for the sake of pokemon and the new professor layton vs phoenix wright as well as the dual destine ace attorney but other than that, I don’t think I’m gonna want to play other ds games lol. then again, I also want a PS VITA just because I’ve always been more of a sony person (and the bigger consoles – xbox and PS but not Wii. i just don’t like wii and i don’t think i’m ever gonna be into wii). but eh i guess if i have the money just for ONE console, i’d definitely buy the xbox or PS4 :)) all the awesome games i love are available there (like uh mass effect or battlefield, etc)

    i’ll get back to gaming on console someday haha but for now, i’ll settle for pc because consoles are always upgrading themselves and i’m poor.

    anyway, i like your cases though. very adorable! the other day i saw this limited edition of pikachu 3ds and i thought it’s so cute >w< the monster hunter one has got to be my fav! just because i like the game…haha xD it's actually a pretty difficult game, i suppose. i miss playing it on psp (TAT)

    Hi nice work I was just wondering if you would ever sell a template of sailer moon like the one you have there for the 3ds XL on etsy or some other place? Thank you.
