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.
I was commissioned to make some monsters for Elegy – a Doompunk Larp!
These beasts, there were three, would come out at night to eat peoples’ faces. They’re called Organ Thieves, Flesh Thieves, etc. Because this was a night-time run, the folks wearing these masks had to see, so the fabric is dark enough to make it VERY creepy at night, but light enough for visibility.
These were very fun to make.
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.
