These are the first 2 Legend of Zelda flasks I made. I have sold both of these but still have one more for sale in my Etsy Shop. They are both stainless steel flasks, suitable for alcoholic beverages, and my last one is ready to ship. Go here [ [link] ] and buy it now!
New dryad mask- The origonal dryad mask in some of my other deviations was not may creation. The dryad wanted a mask custom made for her made by me so this is what I came up with. Four layers each sculpted, tooled, painted and sealed. I used her actual face to form the mask which ensures a perfect fit and comfort.
Steampunk "Strange" Detector Bracer available on Etsy: [link]
Here is a new design from Tinkerton Scientific to make even the Madder brothers jealous. The "Strange" detector uses glim and steam to power it's workings to discern both the presence and possible source of supernatural activity. Know what your up against before they even know your coming. A must have for monster hunters or adventurers in the weird west.
The "Strange" detector bracer is inspired by the Age of Steam books by Devon Monk (book 2 out in July 2012). It has a read-out gauge set inside a wooden and brass panel, and is color coded to show different supernatural sources (non-functional). The 3 LED's are powered by 2 AAA batteries concealed in the leather pocket under the gauge. The red and blinking red LED's are inside glass vials covered with a spring to disguise them, and the Green LED is hidden behind the glass vile of liquid "glim" to give it it's glowing property. They are connected to a toggle switch near the gauge to turn them on and off. The leather is 7oz veg tan leather that has been stamped with clockwork impressions and finished in an antiqued brown. Bracer is about 8" long, and straps will fit most arms sizes (wrist from 6.5" to 8") with room for more adjustment holes. Extra strap leather can be trimmed by the buyer after final fitting is done.
You can watch a 4 part video series on YouTube showing the bracer being built from conception to finished product. Steampunk Design Demo by Steampunked Out (part 1-4): [link]
This is a special edition piece, and is much more complicated and details than the standard LED Bracers designs sold on my retail website.
I have to say... I have officially fallen for mountain lions now after working on this little guy, and I officially WANT one even more now and I'm currently trying to bribe my family into getting me one for Christmas. ANYWAY. This little bugger is still rough, meaning he needs epoxied, painted, and a good brushdown as well as the rest of his body being stitched and stuffed and all sewn up. He's a young cat, and after discussing the eye color, we went with the huskie blue since the younger cats still retain their blue eyes. It really sets this little guy apart from others, and just ugh.. He's to adorable for words. I'm going to spoil him rotten while he's in my care, and he's one I will really hate to see go! But this beauty belongs to ~CatBonesTaxidermy and will be home sometime soon with another mount I'm working on for her. Everything sort of fell together with this guy, despite a few setbacks xD I couldn't find a mountain lion form that was small enough to fit his head so... after much alterations, I settled for a large bobcat form for him. Couldn't tell huh?! More pictures will come of him once he's all done! I hope you like him Cat!
Requested specific Celtic Knotworking designs, chocolate and red two toned dyed leather with copper findings.
It's fitted for his Cade specifically [Souldoll Chiron size] which also worked well on Thial so he got to model =3
There's a few tiny knots on the neck guard that were a bit hard to photograph, but they are tiny. Considering how ghetto my methods are in terms of leatherworking, I'm surprised I got them to show up instead of looking like some blob -haha.
Pauldron patterns are all hand done with an awl and the back of a paintbrush, everything done by me. It measures about 3.25 inches across.
I'm looking forward to seeing Cade all back together and modeling this [which... he sort of can't right now considering I have his torso parts for scarwork being done xD] <-Grumpus is too, even though he refuses to admit it <_<
Bal'thial [the model] is a Soom MD Amberboy from Ish'talla. Leather work, his clothing, jewelry, aesthetics, his horns, wig styling all by me. My art is not stock, insert witty disclaimer here... Detail shots can be seen on my Flickr ->[HERE]
I have finished Francis's Halloween Costume. He will probably wear this for quite a while. He is using a Sting letter opener as his sword until I can find one that he can wear on his belt. A claymore isn't bad, but I would prefer a scimitar.
I made everything but the shoes, sword and the bracelet used to hold the sword, it's hard to tell but the boots are short and the black on his legs are shin guards I made. I made this outfit from very soft and slightly stretchy 2 oz sheepskin leather, metal eyelets and skinny satin ribbon.
Francis is a Pipos Mecy. He is mint in color, a kind of soft green/blue.
He's ready to kick some ass at the Renn faire tomorry!
