Hori Fighting Stick 3 Faceplate Design

Howdy, y'all! I need some design inspiration! I've made this template below as an example of what I'm designing, which is...

...The faceplate for a Hori Fighting Stick 3! Woo hoo!

As you can see, I've left the faceplate white and would really appreciate it if people could whip up something basic (or complex!) and send me ideas for images or patterns that'd look cute/groovy/whatever.


Please help me out! Email designs to me at:

thesovietchairman [at] gmail [dot] com

I'll upload any designs I receive and credit you (or not, should you request). If you can't be bothered booting up Photoshop or Paint.NET or CorelDRAW or MS Paint, then just post ideas in the comments!

Here's an (horrible) example of what can be whipped up in seconds.

So please... Send 'em my way!

I shall be grateful for the inspiration/ideas/laughs.


P.S. The button colours have been chosen to match their functions in several of my fighting games. The cherry top on the joystick is a translucent, gorgeous purple with bubbles inside because it's awesome. So shut up.

P.P.S. I went out and bought a soldering kit and a dremel! Yaysies!

P.P.P.S If you want a template for a more completed design, so I can print it- It's here:

P.P.P.P.S Here's some of my case modding gear, including buttons, wires, soldering iron, solder sponge, solder and dremel kit.


  1. Case-modding! Why was I not informed? Oh wait... it is right here.

  2. My buttons and wiring just arrived! Mmmm... Delicious Sanwa arcade pushbuttons...

    You could come up with some awesome ideas, I'm sure!

    Get to it!!
