If this isn’t the coolest skin for your laptop, I don’t know what is! Damn! I’ve been a huge fan of gelaskins from when I first saw them a little over a year ago. My MacBook Pro loves her Audrey Kawaski sticker so much, in fact, that she doesn’t feel right without it. I’m happy to announce that we’ve partnered up with Gelaskins to give away 3 free computer skins for Met members or twitter followers. These retail for around $30 so this is a great deal! Here are a few of my favorites:

Colin Thompson’s Underworld – A typewriter skin on a computer? Brilliant!

Camilla d’Errico’s Yuuta

Caia Koopman’s Beguiled – Love the colors to this one.

Luke Chueh’S The Soundtrack (To My Life) – So sad but so cute.

Colin Thompson’s Blue Willow What’s great about gelaskins is that they work with some of the best artists in creating these removable stickers for your favorite devices. So here are the rules. 1.
