Not dead

I really need to try and get a good handle on this blogging thing...anyways, I've been kept busy with a number of things, which I'll outline

  • Helped a friend get a Ness costume together (and by helped, I merely said "buy those over that")
  • Learned to crochet! Picture attached below for proof
  • Working on a Wind Waker (the baton, not the game)
  • Working on a Dr. Stein screw for another friend (which needs to be done by Friday...)
So. Yeah. Not dead. Also: Mr Fish hat!

Thomas sub visor

Just got back into to town after a trip to see a friends wedding, and decided to start polishing up the subvisor boards for Thomas' helmet. 

The two boards will be held together with some allthread and nylon spacers to keep them at their set distances. There will be grooves/holes cut into these boards to hold the sub visor. The main visor will be held into place mostly by friction. Or, at least, thats the plan.

Collin and Foam fun

As stated in a previous post, I've been working on my Companion Cube (who has now been dubbed Collin). Firs picture is of Collin.

Basic construction is a 18" foamboard cube with cardstock corners. I had the templates for the corners yanked from a site that is now no more, so I can't post the link to them. Anyways, the corners were tapped onto the cube, and then one of the flaps lifted, as to allow me to spray some expanding foam inside to give it some support. As you can see in the picture...I put a touch too much foam into one of the corners...

Oh, and the expanding foam? Yeah...I failed to clean the bottle correctly, and had to try and dig out the set foam from the nozzle. Sadly, while I was digging at it, I managed to break the seal inside the bottle. The following is the result of that.
