Tyrannosaurus Mixer?

UPDATE: Mark has posted his mock-up of what the T-Mix could look like!

So I have a KitchenAid Pro HD mixer that is a boring gray color. I am thinking about livening it up a bit and remembered Alton Brown has his KitchenAid painted up:

But I think I’m not exactly the tribal-flames type. So I got to sketching again. And here’s my first idea, the Tyrannosaurus Mixer:

What other ideas do you have for a mixer? mine is the bowl-lift style (as opposed to the tilt-head style), so there are two skinny bowl-holder arms that could double for arms 🙂

    I’ve been wanting a kitchenaid mixer for the longest, and I’m about to buy one possibly this week. I’m a bit infactuated with Alton Brown and would love to paint the flames on my mixer, but I hate painting! I’ve looked at decals to put on it and I’m a bit turned off now. Here’s some ideas though for your mixer.

    -A bomb (like the kind dropped from a stealth bomber)
    -A human arm with the hand looking as if it’s holding the front where the attachments go
    -Try thinking of funny ways to make the whole exterior look like a Rube Goldberg machine
    -Make it look futuristic (add extra knobs and switches just to make it look interesting)
    -Continuing with the comical sense, make it say, ” PRESENTED IN HD 3D” and “Actual Size!”
    -If it was red, you could make it look like a Milwaukee power tool or something of that nature
    -Make it look like R2D2 from star wars

    If my ideas don’t seem good enough, which they’re probably only to my humor, I hope it spawns some ideas of your own and you’ll share them with us on here soon!
