    Magneto film and comic mashup

    Hello all, I've joined the forum to seek the advice of anyone who has some. Most of my work is sculpture but the other month I got the urge to build a helmet (for no real reason) and picked Magneto's and went for a mashup of the First Class helmet with comic colours. I was fairly happy with...

    Help with Cylcops LED optic blast effect

    I am trying to wire/solder up two LEDs to put into a visor for a Cyclops costume. When I tried the battery with 2 LEDs they burnt out. Since the two lights will be right in front of my eyes and the battery near my temple, I do not want anything getting too hot. I have tried to use online LED...

    Gambit (early 2000s version)

    Gambit was my very first cosplay. I always liked the character. Like many comic book fans of my generation, I grew up watching the 90s cartoon and thought Gambit was a really character. Nowdays, I appreciate Remy Lebeau for his Cajun background. As an francophone Acadian from Canada, I relate to...

    X-Men: DOFP Magneto's Bucket v.2 - FINISHED!

    I've been meaning to get this out of my system ever since the movie came out (and seeing it twice) and now that I've got some time from working on masks; I figured it's a better time as any to do it. I'm not crazy about the textures of the thing but the movie was good enough that it justified...

    30-minute Mystique makeup

    This was a quick makeup just for fun. I had planned to do this last Halloween, but went with a full zombie look. I have done a few other quick makeups using the contacts since they were not cheap, and this seems to be the most popular among my friends. It was done using just acrylic craft...

    Hi RPF folks! I've recently been trying to make various foam items such as magnetos new costume and some iron man parts and I've faced a few problems that I need help with.

    This was my first attempt at anything pepakura and I must say I am now addicted. To start out I wanted to make a Magneto Days of Future Past helmet. I decided I wanted to use the Magneto First Class helmet as a base for my build. I started out with cutting and gluing the pieces together and...

I would like to be able to at least wear the helmet for the upcoming X-Men film's premier, but I don't really have enough money or time to both complete and make casts of the helmet.

    First Sculpt - Mystique Prosthetics

    I'm working on my first ever prosthetic piece. I've never sculpted before, so it's an experiment. So far it's going good, though I'm trying to whittle the scales down, they seem a little big to me. I'll post my progress, if anyone has constructive criticism, my ears are open :)
