@masseffect Nyreen progress! Again sorry for bathroom photos but this is the best lit mirror in the house at this time of day and I do not fancy setting my tripod out and all the rigmarole it takes to get my camera to focus when taking self portraits (I need to have a stand in or the camera focuses on the background…. I usually use a Christmas tree stand, vacuum tube and wig head, it can be entertaining)
Anyway so this is the first successful cast! I will be using this but I want to make as many sets as I can before the mold loses too much definition. I love the texture I got on the skull but it will eventually go bye bye. The very last set will be a semi rigid urethane which I will also use to cast my Asari pieces from and any other plaster mold looking a bit dodgy.
Also, I will be using various means to hold pieces together. The pins forced curves not present and the underside of the upper lip sticks out but will be glued flat to the inside. I will be using a lot of velcro dots. They stick very well to latex indeed and will allow for fast removal in case of heatstroke. Cough, not that that happened at the Dragon*Con parade at all… cough. ehem.
I may go try and test the hood pattern. It’s crazy with overlaps and stand up collar and all that jazz.
(ETA: I use @XYZ because I cross post to twitter on this account 😉 )
Needs more effing notes. EXCELLENT job!!
Thank you 🙂 I’m used to flying under the radar, and it’s fine for in progress stuff. I might get a bit sad if the final product only gets this many notes because by the time she’s finished she’ll be a seriously cool costume. So long as the rest of it goes as well.
I am stalling, I have to admit. Sculpting is almost in my blood even though it only appears that I’ve started in the last few years (I do have my OOK dolls online though), I did have a very long lead up to it.
Anyway long story short: I found my sculpting groove again and am worried I may have lost my sewing groove. Also; I hate the expected photoshoot like whoa. Love spending time in costume, hate photos.
I am even right now delaying the purchase of dye that I need to make the tunic and hood for real 😉 I’ve had plenty of real reasons to avoid it right now it’s just fear.
