I made this as a surprise birthday gift for my Grandma. (Happy birthday Grandma!) Made entirely out of paper, except for the strings in the inside of the piano. I painted the black parts so they were super black. (before they looked a dark grey) Also, the cover folds down over the keys, you can adjust the angle of the music stand or collapse it completely, and the top can close, has an extra part that can fold over the music stand when closed, and the arm can be placed at two different heights to keep the top open.
Here are a 1:1 (ideal for cosplay) and 1:5 papercraft patterns of the Captain America shield. You can find the files at [link] including PDO and Blender files.
There are two 1:1 versions, one with the texture showed in the picture and another without texture so you can paint it.
The 1:1 versions are big papercrafts, you must cut the margins using the line guides in the corners, then join them to complete the pattern. Paste the model to bigger cardboard sheets to make it stronger.
Finally getting around to releasing the models i never did before my extended hiatus. And to celebrate his release, here's a new picture of Abu's Monkey from Aladdin! I'm hoping to have KH Mickey up within a few weeks as well.
Now an unlocked version of the IRONMAN HELMET is included in a zip with other parts of the suit at [link] you can see what's in the zip here
The helmet is fully functional, it is a high detailed papercraft based on a laser scanned model found at [link] . It's part of my MARK III and MARK IV Cosplay suit.
Here are a few tips to build it right: 1. You can use a different material for the eyes, I have used the bottom of a disposable plate. 2. There are two little cones where you might install two 3volt high intensity leds, and place two AA batteries between the eyebrows. 3. Leave some gaps between the eyes and above of them so you can see through them, it's not much but you can see through "scanning". And be sure there is no light reflected from the leds back to your eyes or you wouldn't see anything at all. 4. Use galvanized wire to build the sliders and screw them to the face using flat head screws, nuts and washers. 5. Install a magnetic lock behind the mouth for instant lock when the face fall in place. 6. Join all the (helmet's) nape parts using two paralell ribbons
To wear it slide the (helmet's) nape parts up, insert your head slowly watching your ears, once inside slide the (helmet's) nape parts down.
This is one of three quick teaser images I put together for my web site, giving a glimpse of a large project I've been working on. I think I put it up mainly to remind myself that I need to keep slogging away at it, even though I'm sort of mired in a lot of pre-production work that doesn't feel especially creative, but still has to get done. You know, before the fun stuff starts .
Anyway, here's the description of it from my site:
Empire State Patrol is a project I dreamed up in the summer of 1999, when I was looking at two things simultaneously: one of those things was Lewis Wickes Hine's famous photographs of the workers at the site of the Empire State Building, 1929-1931. The other one was a collection of Buck Rogers Sunday comics pages from the early 1930's.
It got me wondering about what would have happened if a bunch of those same construction workers found themselves in the middle of the sort of adventure they'd have known from their comics and pulp magazines - and if all goes well, you'll have a chance to find out.
Empire State Patrol is intended to be a series of ten comic book chapters, and it resembles the work you see in the 'Retropolis" side of my online store. It's a mammoth undertaking. There is a huge amount of pre-production work still to go - but one of these days, when the first chapters are done, it'll be getting its very own web site with previews of those pages, production notes, and maybe even a blog.
Want to see it? Buy something! Otherwise I'll be delivering pizza long before it's ready!
