To be honest, my reaction to Mayumi Hasegawa's snakeskin DS cover was pretty much the same as JC's response to the matching Wiimote sleeve: it's kinda gross. Fashioned from the skin of a diamond python, this DS skin -- while obviously ... unique -- is just about the creepiest accessory we've ever encountered for the handheld.

Coating your beloved console with dead animal remains isn't a cheap exercise, either: the full set costs ¥12,800 ($120), but you can also buy just the top half for ¥5,800 ($53). Then again, if you're going to put something totally disgusting on your DS, why do things by half?

[Thanks, Dhiram!]
