Sometimes tearing apart a NES controller can be a very good thing. In this case, we'd have to say that such a fashion statement is unwarranted. We like it when the NES controller is improved through deconstruction and reassembly, not stripped of all of its functionality. Of course, using it as a template for delicious treats is also welcomed.
Even considering that the controller was ripped apart and turned into something completely different, thus leaving the world with one less functional NES controller, that is a pretty clever idea for a wallet/coin purse. If you want to make one yourself, they have all the directions posted, along with pictures, allowing you to kill a bit of gaming history just as they have.
