3D modeled Splatoon Canister and Zaofu Spear from Legend of Korra

Two of my latest models are finished, have fun watching the videos. I lost footage of myself 3d modeling but I still have the footage of the printing process.

 

They fit well and make sure to prime the plastic thoroughly before painting. I prefer wood glue.

 

Here’s a link to the models:

Fanime is Over Here’s your phtos

Half way through uploading the photos I ran out of storage on my website and needed an alternative method of returning photos. So I decided to seperate/sort the photos om a way that helps cosplayers find themselves. The photos are divided into groups and numbers so I can easily direct cosplayers to their pictures. Might be a little confusing cause I had to use Google Photos mid way through uploading and I’m too lazy to make things consistent.

Alright click this Link: Fanime 2017

The first few groups are organized under whomever gave me their cards. Then into genres, and finally into cosplays I do not recognise. There are images of every cosplayer in each group and under each set of pictures is a link to the google album. (click your Instagram name)

Enjoy.

Created Marie’s Marie’s Mjolnir from Soul Eater

Hey this is a commission I made . It is Mjolnir from Soul Eater.

I initially made a 3d model of it using fusion 360

The model was pretty basic and easily done. took me about 15 minutes to throw it together. I then 3dprinted it and showed the print to my client to make sure she liked the design of the hammer before I proceed to designing puzzle pieces.

After the client said “I love it,” I began designing the puzzle pieces which took about 5 hours.

After this step I began laser cutting the pieces and glueing them together

The pieces did have these tooth edges that could be easily sanded off.

I used plastic wood as wood filler to fill the joints between all of the pieces

Then used an electric sander to sand it real smooth before priming it with spray filler.

It now just needs a final sand to make it completely smooth

 

Thanks for reading!

Remixed Adafruit’s Lie Ren’s Stormflower Gun Blade

here’s a link to their tutorial: https://learn.adafruit.com/stormflower-gun-blade/overview

After I noticed some of the pieces were too tight I decided to remix the models. I made the sockets better to account for pla and abs expansion.

I also made the trigger spring loaded.

From Concept to Prototype – Marie’s Mjolnir From Soul Eater

This is one of my projects I am working on. Someone asked if I could create Marie’s Mjolnir and I said “yep, I probably could.”

To start out, I used fusion 360 to model the hammer. Then I 3d printed it to scale for my bodychan so i can show it to my client via video or photo. the body chan gives them a good reference of the object to the human body.

I am still waiting for my client to give me any suggestions before I actually start designing the life size hammer. I will probably use plywood and the laser cutter to make the hammer cause I want it to be cost effective, high quality, and light weight.

Thanks for reading

Please follow my page if you enjoy my work.

you can also follow my youtube channel where I try to make videos about my work. I try….

 

Thanks again! enjoy some dorky 3d prints.

 

I am also thinking about using my laser cutter to make wallets and pursure. of course they will be geeky and pop culture influenced.

 

Thanks… bye

 

Punished Props Shares the Same Birthday as me!

dI have been following this youtube channel for a while and they are one of my driving force for all of my projects.

They just posted a video today about Bill’s (the host of Punished Props) birthday and YAY! he shares the same birthday as me. It would be great to meet these guys in real life one day. Maybe, one day . Oh well I will keep working on my props and post occasional videos and blogs and maybe just maybe we will meet one day.

Please visit their channel and download their free E-book celebrating their birthday…. our birthday.  *cough* their birthday.

Made my Own Body-kun/Body-Chan for testing

For experimental purposes, I measured a Body-Kun and test printed it for 3d modeling purposes. My guess Is I can make 3d printable armor pieces and test them on body-kun then scale them up human size.  So far I got a pretty good scale print of body-kun which proves I can use the model to make

I got a pretty good scale print of body-kun which proves I can use the model to make armor to fit her.  The print was in 10 percent infill and I used an iron to melt off the supports… that is why it looks odd. Without that taken into consideration, It looks pretty good and it makes a good reference in my 3d modeling programs also the armor pieces can be scaled up to life sizes and as long as you are 5-6 feet tall you’ll fit into the armor no problem.

I am getting pretty excited cause I been wanting to do this sort of thing ever since I saw Felicia Day’s 3d printed armor designed by Mellisa Ng. This is just a step towards creating my first design and showing it off to you guys. Hopefully sometime in the near future I can print these designs for real people…. but for now, I will stick to creating them for body-kun…. cause I am poor….

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day.

Currently working on Tali’s helmet, female Alarak, and a howling banshee. Once I finish my first set of armor I will make one of them youtube videos that are not crappy like the rest of my videos.

Again thanks for reading, bye.

Took some Photos at a Cosplay Meet up, and lets Blog a little about some issues that bother me a little.

Yup met some mighty awesome cosplayers at Nor-Cal’s Gathering and here is a link to the photos.


Some Read if You care stuff: About stuff I see at cons


 

Sometimes at conventions I get somewhat annoyed when I see people left out based on their appearance. It especially ticks me when someone talks about others in rude ways. I remember a photographer once told me he only charges money to cosplayers who do not look good and I also remember hearing people verbally make fun of some cosplayer’s image. This is extremely insensitive and hurtful to the person and I hope you are bothered as much as I am.

I do not think body shaming is good for any community, you would be the worst jerk if you made fun of weak and fat people at the gym. It is equivalent to healthy people making fun of wheel chairs in a hospital. Maybe a bad metaphor, but you get what I am trying to say, being a dick is not cool. It creates a negative aura when cosplayers are given less positive and more negative attention….. even the lack of attention could be taken as a negative.

unfortunately,  I have to admit,

I myself have a bias towards who I take photos of. I look for cosplayers who grab my attention, they may have intricate looking designs or look kawaii enough for me to come up and ask if I can take a few photos. At the same time, I ignore those who do not stand out. I see this as a problem cause it shows I am being picky and leaving a number of cosplayers out which may be offensive if people knew this.  Also it does not agree with what made me continue doing cosplay photography.  When I began posting people’s photos online, I got comments about how my photos boost their confidence and made them feel good about themselves. This made me feel great, cause what I did was somewhat influential in a good way.

But after noticing I am being selective with my photos, I believe I need to be more conscious when I go out to events for photos also be more aware of who I ask. It annoys me when I see people alone….. maybe my photography can change this, maybe… Just hope I continue with my original objective or else I will be annoyed with myself.

Yeah…. sum things up, I act dismissive and I know it would suck if someone dissed me or brushed me off.
