last touch ups for my melaka fray cosplay for supanova perth this year :D (Big Grin) 
My Halloween Skeleton
I used this tutorial: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbNanD…

I brought alot of candy and waited for the kids to arrive on halloween - saw some wicked as costumes that the kids created and got told they loved my skeleton makeup - even freaked out a parent (so yep definitely hit the mark).

Think next year i work on the outside and decorate it to be more spooky and noticeable compared to a single sign.

DIY SLAYER SCYTHE PROJECT
I've been working on this for several months for a future cosplay as Melaka Fray, a futuristic slayer set 200 years from the present storyline of Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics.

The materials I used:

1) cardboard
2) Print out of the Slayer Scythe
3) Glue
4) Newspaper
5) Red Felt
6) Brown leather (I just brought some scraps down at Spotlight on special)
7) Acrylic Paint - (silver, black, brown, white)
8) Black leather cord
9) Hot Glue Gun and glue sticks
10) Aluminum Foil

Method:

1) Cardboard - Cut out pieces with hand drawn slayer scythe template. Cut out the handle of the scythe until you're happy with. I cut out several long rectangular strips of cardboard for the staff (I used approx 5 or 6 cardboard strips of the staff in order for it to hold  the weight of the head of scythe)

2) Paper mache - all the pieces together. First paper mache the cardboard rectangular pieces together, allow drying time, then paper mache the scythe blade on, allow drying time.  For the studs:  cut out small circular shapes (x5) size of a 20 cent piece and then paper mache them on.

As  for the middle part (diamond looking shape) - I used aluminum foil to create the look by taking a measurable size, rolling it as thinly as i could, then cutting it in several long pieces  and hot glued it  so it attaches from the middle of the staff to the beginning of the stake. Then  when all the aluminum pieces are connected,paper mache.

In the end I ended up applying x3 layers of paper mache. 

3) Acrylic paints - I did all my painting first, its up to you if you apply the brown leather and red felt first. But first using the slayer scythe template I had, I drew the pattern on both sides until happy with it. Then paint away! I mixed black and white to get the shade I was after, for both the blade, top part of the staff and the stake,  allow drying time, then adding any necessary shading.

4) Using template, cut out the red felt to apply onto the slayer scythe using hot glue gun. Cut out strips of brown leather, bit by bit, using hot glue gun, wrap the brown leather around until the middle part is completely covered.

5) Attach the black leather cord at the handle of scythe.


And have fun making your slayer scythe!! ;)

Likes:
History, Folklore and Mythology, drawing, writing, reading (books and comics), when the weather is good love swimming at the beach/or pools, camping, shopping, and of course love my many TV series, movies.

Genres:
I love them all but my favourites are: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror and Disney!

After awhile of not writing I've finally gone back writing, been working on several stories, that I like to alternate to and fro. I'm always trying to improve with in both in my story telling and drawing by getting my hands on any technical material that I can use to become better expressing what I see and feel :)

The classics between doomed romances, especially when supernatural elements are thrown in for good measure! Nothing like Twilight (cant stand that) but more Beauty/the Beast, Romeo/Juliet, Damon/Elena....

I also like it when they shake up the mythologies and mythological creatures in movies/TV, books/comics to tell their own story (Xena, TVD, The Originals, Mortal Instruments, Underworld, etc), love to cheer on for the underdog!

I am a sucker for the popular teen drama of a supernatural being trying to assimilate into society (high school) defiantly a classic, shows like Buffy/TVD or mature audiences of spinoffs like Angel, to repent for past deeds and redemption through one's actions, which is another fave.

Though its refreshing to get more a mature HBO shows that not afraid to shy away from themes and issues such as True Blood, The Walking Dead, Games of Thrones (Yeah i love LOVE my tv shows hahaha)
