Okay...I have so much computer parts left over in boxes I wanted to do ONE more pc build, and it's...outrageous.

I'm a HUGE fan of Jem, (Jem boy?) and after being inspired from watching youtubers pimp out computers with their own custom rigs, and realizing to my disappointment no one has tried this yet I want to make plans to do this in the future.

Maybe I can get a bit of advice here to note? Don't know if there are custom rig modders here.

- This is primarily for aesthetic, so while it won't be running some 1k gpu/cpu it will stay capable. Well...I consider my g4560/1050 ti build capable, so mileage may vary...

- I believe I talked about badly wanting that NZXT pink phantom case to do something like this, but that joke case is too rare, and expensive since it was an april fools joke. So, had my eye on a couple, but seems only apevia is into the pink case game.

^Pink and red is ideal here as far as color scheme. So, if someone has a better suggestion...

- Guess I could keep things simple and just use stickers to decorate the sides...Can't think of a reason to cut up cases over this even if I feel a tad old for stickers.

- Err...What type of glitter could I put on the case to make it stick without making a mess? I'm not gonna try putting that stuff inside.

- No, this is not a joke topic. Laugh if you wish, but this s*** is happening! hell, Ill even show it in a video when I'm done.

I'm not laughing. But you know, Jem's computer wasn't really pink. I'd probably start with a white case and add in pink and neon colors. The main thing would be to get like a Jem-earring-star stencil to put inside the glass window.

Oh, I didn't consider it looking something like Synergy - would rather go pink than purple. Also, as far as the jem star earnings are concerned...I could either sticker them on, or...

Notice the two red LEDs at the top? You're giving me a cool idea to get those earnings in though.

Another thing...On the sides of the case stickers from every band in the show (misfits, stingers) would be used. Stingers were so late in the show's run have a hard time finding merch from them.

It dosint have the 80s bevirly hill Jem vibe,

it looks & feels more on par with post highschool musical/anime pink idol modern 20s era,

my advice, try going back to the greater then live 80s era first,
before jumping in on something that might not lives up to your vision.

- The 80s were...honestly pretty tacky, full of androgyny, and generally being as outlandish as possible with looks, so at very least I want to live up to the spirit of Jem, and the 80s. Notice most here don't like the "gamer" look of some cases, so this is one of those opportunities to let it all hang out. I WILL do my waif errr...favorite cartoon character justice!

- Fun fact - jem technically IS an anime. Toei animation did alot of the episodes under their former name back in the day.

- I collected all of that IDW comic as well as collected the cartoon on DVD, so I would be modernizing Jem as they did. Would you rather I go to the dump, and pimp out an old IDE based machine? As long as I don't get vibes from that damn movie, it's fine.

- Best Part? Was born in 1990.

Thinking a bit out of the box here...Might use push pin buttons I saw on ebay, take the tacs off, and glue//tape them to the case.

Also, I might match each holograms' hair color with an led fan.

Jem (pink) Kimber (Red) Shayna (Purple) Aja (Blue) ...Raya is irrelevant being another pink head. She's blond in the comic though. If I have 5 fans to work with along with an led cpu fan to cycle all the colors, should be fine.

Bump. Anything else I should note?

The pioneer is currently top candidate for the case.

I still vote for a white case and then use pink as an accent color.

I have that poster on the upper right, but first time seeing the one on the upper left. Funny enough I never wanted the dolls. Beyond the whole "grown man collecting dolls" thing, just not interested.

When my fandom reached the insane point: https://youtu.be/30qC8Ezf52c

Show a case you have in mind so I can add it to the candidates.

I would go with the micro atx case and throw in some Corsair or Thermaltake rgb fans, running them in purple, reds, neon blue. Can get custom fan grills (heart shaped/women/diamonds) etc. If running a custom loop you could add special colored fluid with bits of glitter (more or less) already in it. If trying to show off the inside you can get custom ssd/hdd covers with rgb lighting (also with whatever design you want).

Don't put stickers on your case. Or decals.
