Cosplay Tutorial: Molding and casting your piecesThis tutorial is based on how to use Smooth-on's Oomoo- and Smooth-cast series materials for cosplay purposes. There is little special too about using fiberglass instead of smooth-cast. Hope you enjoy!Cosplay Tutorial: Molding and casting your pieces2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok. Lets get started!
"I need five identically same looking parts like in that center of the picture for my cosplay but making them one by one would take LOTS of time. What to do?"
If you have the right materials then the answer is simple: "Make one sharp prototype of that piece then mold it and cast it."
Here are the materials you need:
- Modelling paste for making the prototype (or what ever material you like. It won't affect to the final product)
- Smooth-On's Oomoo 25 or 30 for making the mold (mold max 20-40 works too but it' need more skill to use. So i recommend Oomoo)
- Smooth-On's Smoothcast series for casting (i recommend smooth-cast 320 because it is easy to paint with spray paint)
(Smooth-On got lot of resellers in few countries. Here in Finland is Silcom.fi who sells their p

Last year I visited a craft fair and discovered in the paper decoration / paper crafting a super great new material.
Maybe some of you know it.
But here in german Cosplay scene, and perhaps also for many other countries it's really a novelty.
It can be used for paper decoration, for gemstones, paint and much more.
In this tutorial I made a kind of decoration for costumes versions/ setting f

Sick and tired of 9gag theft[Update: After 13 Days, they finally removed the image. ]Sick and tired of 9gag theft1 year ago in Personal More Like This
a new Mini Comic sadly means, more theft over on 9gag. Like clockwork, someone stole the most recent one and reposted it here within minutes.
I have had every single Mini Comic stolen so far without fail, and I feel that now I am forced to use more prominent and ugly watermarks in the future.
In general I don't mind when people share my art, as long as 1. no money is earned through the post (9gag makes about $13k a day through ad revenue with traffic generated by stolen material) 2. watermarks are not removed and people can find the source 3. people ask beforehand.
I have a Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, so on those sites I post most of my art anyway which people can simply retweet, reblog and share.
So far, 9ga

My Mecha/Gundam cosplay tutorial is completingAt last I have completed the tutorial for the structure making of a Mecha/Gundam... It will be sufficient for anyone who wants to build a mecha costume. The rest of the tutorial touches on asthetics which may be not useful to alot of people because PVC plastic sheets seem hard to find in other countries.My Mecha/Gundam cosplay tutorial is completing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It has been a tedious process compiling the tutorial which is based on version 9 of my mecha costume making method. I used to have a version 7 tutorial which has the exact measurements for each part...but I guess that will fit my size only and may not work well on others....and I kinda want people to think about the scaling and measurements with reference to a model kit/Gunpla rather than just copying every single thing from the tutorial.
A lot of people asked why do I do compile this tutorial where no one else does (for free) and whether I am afraid that people will know my secrets. The answer is that I want more people to try making and cosplaying a mecha so that there will be mo

FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weaponEdit: Many of you asked for a transformation vid. So, I made this video clip. Enjoy!FAQ: FFXIII-2 Starseeker weapon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my former journal I asked if you would like for me to explain how my Starseeker weapon was made. Since there were quite some people that would like me to do so, I decided to make this FAQ journal. So, I hope I'l answer some questions you might have about this curious weapon and I hope I can explain it well enough for you all to understand.
Note that I made the weapon a couple of months ago and I don't remember everything very clear of the making of it. But, I'll do my best.
So, first things first: The Starseeker
Serah's weapon is quite the interesting one. This because it's a transformable one just like her sister's, Lightning. Nonetheless, it's a transformable one from bow to blade, which original form is none other than the cute moogle companion, Mog.
Of course, Final Fantasy is all about 'Fantasy', so making an exact workin
