    halo elite gold zealot

    thanks! I'm not fond of wearing eva but using it to build shapes "quickly"( relatively speaking) is one of it's selling points. I'm trying to be forgiving of rough areas that i'll fill/sand later in the hard final.

    halo elite gold zealot

    I'm working through my short list of costumes. No 3 on the list is the gold elite from halo. I'm using the version from 2 and the 3 multiplayer i worked up some drawings in illustrator from photos of the action figure and google searches. I printed these out with ruler marks to align them...

    Sith Ithorian Evil "Hammerhead" star wars costume

    I was hoping to participate in a Star Wars Darkside group my friends are putting together for Dragoncon2016. My evil Hammerhead sith I did a bunch of sketches and did a rough supersculpey mock up that for some reason imports sideways.. His eyes are too close and i'm pretty sure 5...

    Fiberglass....tissue ??

    i also saw the video ( xrobot?) of the guy coating eva with smoothon 65d. i 've tried this too. it works well but a few things to be mindful of. if you let the first layer totally set up before applying the next, you run the risk of it delaminating. it will literally flake apart. you have to...

    Peach Boy action figure

    OK... so believe me this exists. Peach Boy is apparently a legend? I guess? and they made a movie which we saw in China when my wife was teaching at a university in Beijing...It took me forever to find a Dvd of it under the name Magic of Spell. Basically at the end of the movie, the characters...

    imperator furiosa sculpt mad max

    the belts are cast in something called "bounce" mixed with cornstarch. they feel like those rubber fishing lures. mostly, the thin straps are paper covered in acrylic gel medium. styrene, really thin eva foam, milliput, aluminum make up the other details over all. - - - Updated - - - jaganar ...
