Fun with pepakura! Grab your .pdo files and go at it!

About 3 days on and off to cut and assemble. 12 pages of cardstock and a buttload of tape, only because this was just a test. You really can't get it too clean using scotch tape. You really need glue.

I may end up making Master Chief's armour eventually. The helmet was a pretty fun project.

Master Chief? More like AWESOME CHIEF, AMIRITE?

Another junky post. Nerdism to the extreme.

So I found some photos from a quick shoot I had while I was in Baltimore. They came out beautifully, I'm totally ecstatic. Major props to LJinto for being so awesome.

Got a few projects clogging up the pipelines. Half is prop related the other half is animation related. More on that later...

I'm currently waiting for a package of epoxy resin and silicone RTV mold making supplies. That should get here Thursday and I can't contain my excitement! NICE MOLD MAKING SUPPLIES. <3 Expect a post on how much I love (or hate) the RTV stuff. I've never had the pleasure of using nice mold-making compounds. It's always cheap plaster, blargh.

In the meantime, enjoy some scrapped spaulders of Wonderflex and Plasti-Paste. Solid as all get-out but totally the wrong shape.

"Illusion," Michael. A trick is something a whore does for money.

I can now say that I make award-winning props and costumes. Pretty rad, right?

so i herd u herd taht i liek dressing up. Well, I do. Remember the sword I said I was working on and all? I lugged that around in costume this past weekend at Otakon in Baltimore.

If you've ever read/watched Claymore then this'd look familiar, but if not just remember that I'm dressed up as the most badass character from the series, okay? Hurr hurr.

It was a mildly epic weekend. I placed second in the Journeyman in Friday's costume competition. I also played temporary booth babe/promoter for Funimation, the company that acquired the distribution rights to Claymore.

LOOKIT THEM BOOTH BABES. Carloyn (left) and I were asked by the brand manager of Funimation to hang around the booth and do some promo work for the show. We did a 5 minute interview for their site, got lots of pictures, and exchanged cards with them. I didn't get anything out of it except a free DVD of the show but damnit, they have my card.

Also, these are some of the people I roomed with. They are phenomenal and my head almost exploded with all the Mighty Boosh quotes flying around the room.

It was a good weekend in all... Minus the flight back. Remind me never to fly AirTran again. The past couple times have been shite service and organization.

I'm open for prop commissions, preferably weaponry and such as I'd rather not start out trying to fit armour for people I can't readily measure. I don't want you guys to look stupid in my gear, duh. Although I could make some exceptions...

I'm itching to make something new now that this project is done.

So he says to me, 'You wanna be a baaaaad guy?' And I say yeah, baby! I wanna be bad! I SAYS, SURF'S UP SPACE PONIES! I'M MAKING GRAVY WITHOUT THE LUMPS! Aaaaaa-hahahahaha!
