Left: The Compass without the strap.
Right: Strapped to wrist (sorry for the quality of the shot, poor lighting and I was in a hurry)
So my 'brother' went to EuroSteamCon, the first time I heard about Steampunk conventions in Porto and he asked me to make him an accessory after I teased him with some really cool Steampunk images. He went, hey can you make me a compass? And I was all, ah no problem! *strikes pose*
I had NO IDEA of what I was getting myself into!
He had told me in August and he needed the compass tor the end of September and in my good tradition, I forgot about it altogether. So in the eve of the event and having run for days on seriously poor sleep I tried to throw stuff together on top of a WORKING compass. I had never made Steampunk stuff and I didn't have enough original parts, so what do I do? I take the originals and make copies out of Fimo and Cold Porcelain and this was the result. Don't me too mean, I know it's sort of sucky.
I wasn't happy at all with it, but he apparently was, so... it was okay? lol Portugal lacks the tiny pieces you need to make Steampunk stuff, we have to order it all from the net and it comes from the States or from China at exorbitant prices and takes ages to arrive
We suck that much.
Anyway, there it was, he wore it for two days and in spite of being fragily made it made it through the two days of the even! lol Yay me and my glue!
Made with: working compass (bought by my bro), Fimo, Cold porcelain and loads of UHU glue, lather for the wrist strap.
