    Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them

    A couple weeks ago, I finished and debuted my second version of the coat. Besides the fabric not having the diamond weave, I am happy with how far I was able to take it. I also crafted the Pickett who lives in my pocket.

    Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them

    That seems perfectly reasonable if it's a good enough match. I love how much character the diamond weave with hints of green gives the real coat. Were you going to try to replicate the oatmeal-green weave or the post-dye blue? Mark me as interested if you ever do find enough people who want it.

    Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them

    Hello! I just popped into this thread to see if anyone else had come to the realization that the swatch shown in the FB Book is likely the one that was over-dyed for the coat fabric, and it seems you guys are all over it. Has anyone found a source for a similar wool yet? I made my first version...

    Coryn's 2014 Halloween Costume Contest Entry : Lego movie Benny "SPACESHIP!"

    Incredible! I was following this for a while, and the final product makes me smile every single time I see it. You got some great character and personality into this costume, in addition to the perfect scale and details. Bravo!

    Eomer from LOTR build - WIP

    I bought a platinum blonde extra-long ponytail from ebay. It has a loop on the end, which would make it easy to attach. Before gluing the crest to the helmet with E-6000, I needed to make sure I could attach the ponytail. To attach the ponytail, I drilled about a 1/2 - 3/4 inch hole in the...

    Rohirrim Shields - Lord of the Rings WIP - First one finished. A few more pics!

    Love this shield! I hate that I missed this back when you originally posted it, but better late than never.

    Eomer from LOTR build - WIP

    The crest began in a similar manner to the rest of the helmet, but instead of using Bondo, I skinned the foam with sulfer-free clay. I was more comfortable making the organic shapes I needed out of clay, and I knew from experience I could take a mold from this clay with no problems. Lucky for...

    Eomer from LOTR build - WIP

    Last thing I did before molding was to add the semi-circle details to the sides. These were just cut from card-stock and glued to the helmet. Next it was time for silicone (Smooth-on Mold-max 40). Once the silicone cured (2 coats), I made a mold jacket with MDF and fiberglass. For the cast, I...

    Eomer from LOTR build - WIP

    My first step was to draw the basic shapes in Illustrator, and scale them to the correct size. I was a bit off in my interpretation of the ear details, but I’ll fix that later. The front and side shapes were straightforward enough, but I had to guess at the shape of the circumference. Once I...

    Eomer from LOTR build - WIP

    I debuted the helmet at Chicago Comic Con today, and it seemed to be a huge hit. Karl Urban himself declared, "phenomenal." Here's a photo from Max on flickr.

    Eomer from LOTR build - WIP

    Since last year I've been wanting to complete this armor with a few of the pieces I didn't get to finish for DragonCon 2013. Build write-up coming soon, but for now here's the completed helmet!

    11th Doctor 2012 Christmas Special WIP

    The trim I used came on a 12.5m spool, and I did not run out, but I wouldn't want to have ordered any less.

    11th Doctor 2012 Christmas Special WIP

    I would tend to agree with this, based on the hours I spent searching online for this a couple months ago - nothing new has surfaced that would change my search parameters. Maybe scavengers in UK resale shops will have better luck than those of us relying on ebay and google.

    11th Doctor 2012 Christmas Special WIP

    Steve Ricks has once again updated his excellent blog, this time including a closeup of the fob that's hanging on this costume in the Experience exhibit. I won't copy his image here, but it's clearly a boxing medallion with no gold frame. Please visit his site for the full writeup. I do think...
