I stumbled across
something pretty cool today on the net, and decided to share it with you guys. This chick Allison from Dirty Ass Soaps crafted a 1:1 scale look a like NES controller pad out of nothing but soap. Yes, you heard right, soap.
Dirty Ass Soaps (cool name I know) NES controller is the first Retro Gaming project but hopefully not the last. One other really cool feature is, unlike its counterpart, the soap controller is made out of a very green, wonderful organic vegan soap–soap that is free of synthetic chemicals, toxins and animal products.
Thats right, can your original NES pad boast those specs? We think not. Every nerd, geek, and Nintendo fan should be washing away the worlds problems with this stuff, not only will it make you smell better but you are helping the environment at the same time.
Here is a quote from her homepage:
This GIGANTIC NES
Controller soap is exactly the size of the original controller.. and it is a whopping 4.6 ounces! It smells amazing. We hand made the mold and infused our creamy vegan shea butter soap with anise essential oil. We tried to make this pretty darn realistic. The colors on this soap are all natural, and the buttons aren’t painted on (because you know soap paint disappears after just one wash, right?)
If you know a gamer, or happen to be one yourself, what better gift than a soap that looks like an original NES controller? And if you don’t care for the Anise fragrance, convo me! I will make a controller that smells amazing to YOU!
What are you waiting for, sign up for a Etsy account and vote for Dirty Ass Soap’s and buy some soap while you are at it. Hell, the N.E.S. soap controller is a whopping $9.00 dollars. Pick one up and you will be the envy of all your geeky friends, and you know what… you will smell better for it.
Edit: Got my soap in the mail, its pretty cool.
