    Spider-Girl (/Ben Reilly) Webshooters WIP

    Looking seriously awesome! Sorry I'm a little slow on this measurements— I was out hiking. :) Anyhow, mine are approx. 2.5 cm wide at the narrow end, ~4 to 4.2 cm on the wide end; 13 cm long; ~0.75 cm thick on the narrow end, and ~1 to 1.2 cm thick on the wide end. (Variations of course...

    That would be sweet. You gotta let me know if you do! Now it all depends on the individual's arm size, but if you think it'd help, I can measure out the approximate dimensions on mine?

    Spider-Girl (/Ben Reilly) Webshooters WIP

    I've had really good results with the InstaMorph, though it took some finagling to figure out what I needed to do as far as hooking it together. I really like it for the flattened, tapered cartridge look; now, they didn't come out completely uniform because I molded them by hand. For a more...

    Gold Samurai Power Ranger full costume

    Thanks! But shouldn't that be, 'fantastico'? ;) (Assuming you watched the show. Otherwise, uh... this is not the reference you are looking for.)

    Scarlet Spider 1st timer

    Looks awesome! Very polished. I think you made the right call adding the spider, too, it needed that extra flair. Also— where did you get that shirt?? :D

    Goliath from Gargoyles costume W.I.P

    Wow, amazing. Definitely subscribed. And those feet! Are they going to have a sole, or will you be wearing a pair of shoes inside of them? Also, I bet the show runner, Greg Weisman, would love to see this too— he still stays really in touch with the fan base. You should shoot him a pic on twitter.

    Spider-Girl (/Ben Reilly) Webshooters WIP

    Okay! After an hour and a half of fiddling around I finally decided how I wanted to put in the openings in the back. I went with a heat gun and some leather working needles. Other methods attempted: heating the needle (scorched and discolored the plastic) and drilling/dremeling the plastic (made...

    Black Cat costume - Help!

    Well, I might be able to offer some advice on feathers, because (ironically) I used to be a bird trainer. Go figure. From the look of the pictures, I would guess she sewed through the quills of the feathers to keep them in place. On most feathers the quill is pretty sturdy, even on softer...

    Feathered Velociraptor Costume (Zoo Tycoon 2)

    Aw man! I'm sorry you're not gonna get to wear the costume at MegaCon; that said, I think you're right to make sure you're getting the head light enough, or you're gonna kill your neck/back.

    Spider-Girl (/Ben Reilly) Webshooters WIP

    Here we go! All twelve molded pieces. They came out a little flatter than my mock up, but still have pretty nicely curved edges, so I'm happy with them. If I were to do it again, I think I would try to make a wood form and shape the plastic over that, to create more of a shell— that'd make it...

    Spider-Girl (/Ben Reilly) Webshooters WIP

    Thanks! Just molded the cartridge pieces today! Getting the size just right (to get them sitting flush) is proving to be a little challenging, but I think I've got them all at a good point now. And, the upside of using the moldable plastic is that I can keep adjusting. :) I'll try to remember...

    Feathered Velociraptor Costume (Zoo Tycoon 2)

    ...I think you should get credit for this. I mean seriously, elective credit or something. Between the design, the mechanics, the engineering... Just wow. I mean, the most exciting thing I ever did in graphic design was silk-screening.

    [COMPLETE] The Amazing Spider-Girl (Female Ben Reilly Custom Dye-Sub Suit)

    Re: The Amazing Spider-Girl [Comic Book Custom Dye-Sub Suit] For the web shooters (if you end up going for the comic look), are you looking to do the more flattened cartridges or the cylinders? If going for the cylinders, floral tubes might be worth looking into.

    Spider-Girl (/Ben Reilly) Webshooters WIP

    Eventually, I'd like to do a Spider-Girl suit— however, the options are kind of limited on that front, so for the moment I decided to try working on the web shooters. My thoughts are to do them as bracers, using Sintra as the base, with molded plastic (such as InstaMorph) for the 'cartridge'...

    Sweet stroke of luck! This already looks amazing, can't wait to see it finished.
