Award & Skins

‘You are #1!!!’ … that’s what Fitzand told me when I asked what this (pic below) thingie he made for me at the childcare was for. Well I know it is for Father’s Day and I was just testing him … but he kept saying (loudly!) … ‘You are #1!!!’. The funny thing was that we were having dinner outside and that caused people from the other tables to look over. Embarassing! Hahaha! I don’t need to be #1 as long as we are happy … although I sure do need some time off to rest. So that is the ‘award’ and I’m gonna stick it on my wall tonight.

I received some sample camera skins from SKINSLOVE just the other day and managed to ‘dress up’ my cams last night. There were 4 sets of them … for the Golden Half, the Holga, the SX-70 and one for the Gakkenflex. My Gakkenflex is not with me now … so I couldn’t let it try on the skin.

I like the American flag sticker for the Golden Half. It has been too long since I touched the camera and I was shocked to find the rubber body (the black parts) has become stick. Damn! I remember hearing a friend mentioning that and didn’t know that it does happen to mine too. Argh! Even the cyan/blue version is sticky now. That’s it! No more Golden Half for me! Anyone knows how to remove those sticky stuffs? Maybe I’ll just paint it someday.

Next is a black & white skin for the Holga …

A cute and colorful skin for the SX-70 …

Overall I’m impressed with the quality of the skins. They are very precisely cut to fit the cameras and the material seems pretty durable. I’ve tried using some laptop skins (bought from local shops) and realise they are too thick and that makes sticking difficult and of course they won’t look that nice (at the edges) because of my cutting skills.

I ain’t related to the company in any way but if you guys wanna check out some cool skins for your cameras, you can check out their online store which provides FREE SHIPPING and the skins are pretty affordable.

UPDATE

I’ve spoken to those guys in SKINSLOVE and trying to get some discount for a mass order. Anyone interested? I’ll have to see the interest first before deciding. Only applicable for local (Singapore) orders because I ain’t got no time to run to the post office. 😀 For those who are interested … do drop me a message ok?

  1. you mean they can cut to the size of the skin you want?

  2. @gwen : If your camera is not in the list (of what they have), you can send them a ‘template’ of your requirement and they’ll be able to cut it for you. That’s what they told me when I asked them about skins for other cameras.
