Kensanity Project Fatality Stick (Custom By Bencao74)

This entry was originally posted on August 21, 2010 on the original version of the D3vlicious blog.

This is one custom project whose final result actually surprised me because I had no idea I was working on a custom at the time.

Sometime in mid July (2010) I was contacted by SRK poster Kensanity asking for a sexy looking design for a T.E. featuring a selection of images of Capcom and SNK characters (Mai, Felicia, Morrigan, Cammy and Chun Li). From what he originally sent me, I had originally thought that he wanted top and bottom panel art for a Tournament Edition stick. From his request, I came up with these.

It's ironic that if not for Mai, then this would be quite NSFW.

Probably the only time Felicia will get bigger billing than Cammy and Chun Li

Unbeknown-st to me however, Kensanity had actually contracted Bencao74, known by many within the community for providing acrylic fight stick solutions to European gamers, to use the designs that I made for a custom stick based “Project Fatality” acrylic case. The result is the stick that you see here.

Despite the art not being designed originally for the case, the layouts were similar enough that the buttons and stick don’t really cover anything important up.

The stick itself is dual modded to support both PS3 and XBox 360.  Parts include a Sanwa JLF with custom clear acrylic dustwasher and clear Seimitsu buttons. The clear Seimitsu buttons allow for pink LED lights that light up upon pressing the buttons. Bencao74 has happily provided a video showing off the LED lights in action.
