Post-apocalyptic (Fallout style) WindowBlinds

I've just discovered WindowBlinds and I LOVE IT! My PC looks awesome now, and has a whole new feel to it. And this site is full of awesome people an their awesome work. However, I've been search for an post-apocalyptic styled WindowBlind (something like this, with a retro-futuristic, Fallout feel to it), but unfortunately I couldn't find any. Are there similar themes I'm missing, or is someone interested in making something like that? That would really be my dream theme.

 

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Glad to hear your enthusiasm, Denis55. Also, welcome to the Community. While I have been around for awhile, I don't remember seeing anything like that. I think you could pm Snowman (who has the hugest archive of skins that I know of).

You could also pm Vampothika and neone6 who live in close proximity to each other. Vampothika loves a challenge and is a Master Skinner. neone6 has come on the scene more recently, but shows talent and flare in his skinning. I think they're currently working on a painting project... but hive it a try. Another Master Skinner, 2of3 might take on the challenge.

Since you're new, to pm a member, use the search box on the upper right and search the member. Then, click on the member's nickname just over his/her avatar and from the drop down menu, choose "Private Message" (pm).

Oh yeah!

Come on Bry ..... this is right up your ally.

 

EDIT:  I downloaded the WB. I know it was made for XP. I want to see if it will run on Win7.

Wow, I knew this was a helpful community, but I didn't expect this many replies in such a short time.

 

@DrJBHL: I've checked out those guys' work and they really look impressive, but I'll wait for Boxxi's reply to see if he's interested in giving it a shot before I PM them.

 

@BoXXi: Your Engine Room blind looks great, but it's not quite what I was hoping for. I'm currently using this one and it's awesome (it even has a nice sound scheme) however it looks a bit too "futuristic" and "clean" for what I was looking for. If Engine Room and neOS had a child though, with a few rusts, worn-out buttons and nuclear signs here and there, I think it would be spot on!

No problem!

 

I hope one of the guys DrJBHL suggested will be able to help me, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

@Lantec.....the link takes you to a pic of Fett, not to the WB.

And that's the truth. Just tried it, Bry, and it looks great!
