WIP vol.2 (Chest plate)Yo!WIP vol.2 (Chest plate)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I made a chest plate body and some shoes today.
Because this is going to be a quite long WIP, I'm only going to post chest plate WIP tonight.
Shoes are coming up tomorrow.
Oh lol, this chest plate almost drove me nuts.
First time making this kind of stuff.
And second time making a cosplay out of wonderflex!
Oh well, I bet you all gonna laugh.
But wanna know how I made it?
I taped myself with wonderflex, heated myself in front of a mirror with a hot air blower and ran in a bathtub full of cold water
I think it took me about 10 hours to cut, shape and paint it.
Here ya go, a bunch of WIP photos for everyone. I hope you can get some tips!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me
Oh some lovely patterns are the first thing to do.
Warm it up and shape it a bit.
More shaping and taping.
Best weight in the world, a bottle of beer.
Oh trying out some ornaments and stuff. Also made some collar testing.
Lock system. A total of 8 locks in the chest plate armor

My fabric! It needs to be ironed, haha. The blue is silk dupioni that I was lucky to find pretty cheap and the white is a shinier poly shantung from JoAnns. I liked them because I wanted some texture. I got this fabric a long time ago, but I've been procrastinating on the sari because making the trim is kinda a pain. Must work!

Sunday Special ;D WIG HEAD TUTORIAL!Yo!Sunday Special ;D WIG HEAD TUTORIAL!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Okay. It's Sunday. But I've promised to provide you with some new tutorial today also! *grin*
SO! HOW 'BOUT A WIG HEAD TUTORIAL ;D ESPECIALLY FOR YOU MY BIG HEADED FRIENDS!
Actually... I just hate all the wig heads for sale. My head size is 62cm. So you can believe how well those 55cm wig heads fit me.
I even have some problems with all the wigs! I always have to cut off all the adjustable size wraps! ;__; And even then they are too small for me!
Well, my solution for the problem is this!
With only 10 euros! Yeah, around 15 dollars you can make your OWN wig head.
Which is exactly the same shape as your own head.
So you can actually style your wig only with this! No need to put it on and cut trough a mirror anymore! ^^
We all have a different face. Eyes, nose, lips. They are all in different places!
That's why I really recommend to make your own wig head. To get the best results in wig styling!~
Here ya go!
First! You need a packet of straws, a packet of cling film and one who
A Word on WeatheringA lot of people have been asking me how I did the weathering on my armor. The weathering was done using the sponge/rag technique. First, I would take black acrylic and dab it with a sponge and rub it all over the armor,section by section, covering every square inch. Then, after letting it sit for a moment, I would rub it off with a rag. If I wanted to remove more, I would wet the rag. Then I would repeat the process with brown acrylic. Then, after all said and done, the streaks and edges were done with a silver leafing pen.A Word on Weathering9 months ago in Personal More Like This
A word on getting "that look". The point of weathering is that the armor does not look brand spanking new. You shouldn't weather your armor with a specific pattern in mind (unless you are airbrushing and are very skilled). The point of dirt and wear and tear is that it is supposed to be random, so don't fret if the weathering deviates from what you envisioned. But, you should take into account of things like gravity, where the bottom might be more dirtier than the t

Journal #2First off, a big apology to all the people wondering where I've been the last couple of weeks. Life has been... hectic as of late. But now that school's out I'll be dedicating quite a bit more time to deviantArt and to the activities that got me so involved in this site. Chiefly making some Daedric armor! I haven't had time to work on it but I'm still very excited about the project, mainly due to the discovery of bondo filler putty (A big thanks to fairlyodd1217, go check out his iron helmet http://fairlyodd1217.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5a0on4). My original daedric helmet is really rough because I lost patience with trying to smooth out the bondo, but now that I know better than to rush it (and filler putty to help smooth it even more) I'm thinking I can get my pieces to the prop level quality I had envisioned.Journal #21 year ago in Personal More Like This

Disclaimer: A lot of you know me in the cosplay community, and some of you might think that my words may represent the community or organization im involved in. These thoughts are my own based from my own observation. Blame anyone else and ill just laugh at your expense. Thanks.</i>
Bear with me for adding another thought regarding the cosplay scene, i cant help it if certain issues or stories end up quite thought provoking.
Stories of cosplayers being harassed by some spectators are the common buzz in the community recently, and it had me thinking, what provoked these people to commit such actions that are considered unappropriate by the cosplayers themselves?
There are already tips and suggestions focused towards the audience on how to treat cosplayers. Now in this blog, id like

dA PRO Camera Bag
This is a rather late review, but better late than never! This has been my camera bag for a while the dA PRO Camera Bag.
I find it just the right size to carry my essentials, without being too bulky. A lot of my camera-wielding friends with too-large backpacks have repeatedly expressed their envy. Those straps on the front are for carrying tripods. They're removable if you don't need them.

I have tons of photos of these costumes and more, but they sorely lack editing so I take it one step at a time. I'm also working on my next costume, which is Cinder from the Kingkiller Chronicles. My Name of The Wind-costumes have been getting a lot of attention for some reason. I guess it's because there's not really much cosplay going around from there, which astonishes me because these books are so great.
Ahh, well at least I'm doing my part.
I'm also moving to London to study in two weeks time, so there's not much time for anything else. I'm really excited for it, and I have no idea what to expect. I'll be going to Wimbledon College of Arts to study "Technical Arts and Special Effects", which I've been wanting to do for ages.
But yes, this has been an update. Hope you had as much fun as me.

The answer is ME!
I'm pretty good at art, but I'm not gonna upload because you guys might start feeling bad about skills and want to hang yourselves or something. Plus, West said I'm only allowed to be on the computer for like, two hours. Every day.
Which is stupid, but I'm not gonna say that to him because he'd take Freida (that's my laptop's name, by the way) away again or something.

Thank-you, vanaka, to all my dAwatchers out there, You guys are awesome!
Lately I have been very interested in different cultures and countries, I love seeing the way other people live. In June/July I visited FIJI as part of a Christian gap year called "Year 13" that I did this year. I stayed with some amazing families in their homes and villages. Two villages I stayed in were at Nakavu and sigatoka. I absolutely loved spending time with the people there, they loved their family and friends so much. One day I would like to go back and visit them all again.
Next year I am going to the Philippines (God willing) with my church to visit a compassion site, help out with feeding programs, and help out in others ways as well. I am pretty excited!
Well, Here are some photos of people all over the world that stood out to me that I would like to share with you!
