My Tassadar costume is going pretty smoothly! Going to finish latexing the head, add the LEDs and eyes (which are ready, I just need to solder the arrangement and prepare the nerve cord armour) and then move on to the neck. Latex is a lot of fun, it actually feels…kind of like alien skin, actually.
One of my more complicated props done to date: a bone gauntlet!
Made out of Apoxie sculpt, EL wire, hot glue and craft foam – the EL wire is rigged to flash slow, or quick, or stay constant.
Thanks for looking!
At ConBravo I got this real nice photo taken of me in my LARP outfit by GCE.
The skull and axe I made myself.
Though, the skull is getting a big overhaul as we speak, more photos of that to come!
The LARP in question is Elegy, a Doompunk (Post Apocalyptic Larp) located in Southern Ontario, just north of Orangeville.
I encourage you to take a look even if you aren’t from the area. It’s an interesting sci-fi setting to read about.
For Anime North, this was my costume! Baron von Ignatius, also known as the gentleman of death. He is an original design of mine. Click on the picture, and you’ll be able to read his tale of woe…
Skull made of craft foam and hot glue. Staff is done the same way.

For the past week and a half I’ve been working non-stop on this commission, whose deadline was for Anime North. This was a collaborative commission: a friend of mine did the cape, another person made the sword, and I was in charge of the armour and mask.
This here is the Jack of Blades, from Fable.
Armour was made out of styrene, EVA foam and hot glue.
The mask was made from apoxie sculpt.

Hey folks! I’m still around, just finishing up university. Hope everybody’s been well.
Now, what better way to celebrate that than making a new prop? This here is my Skull Cane, for the lack of a better name at the moment. He’s about 3 feet tall, a pleasant fellow, made out of a foam piece I found in my closet, some dowels, willow withes and hot glue. I also used other things (the chain I made by hand!) but he’s the end result.
Anybody got any names for him? 🙂
