Steve head is basically done!
That is all... for now
So, I decided the bazooka isn’t going to be the best fit for the new Joker. I’m reworking it to fit Tiny Tina instead, she is the explosives expert after all.
Pictured is the bazooka after the original plasti-dip cover.
I started reworking it this morning. Covered it in a layer of white acrylic paint. Allowed time to dry. I am now letting a layer of light pink paint dry. Since this isn’t an official weapon in Borderlands, I get some creative freedom designing it. I plan to use Tina’s signature pink heart camouflage, and add a couple touches that I think Tina would apply to her own bazooka. Something about badonkadonks, and rabbits 🐰, I’m still coming up with concepts.
I’ll be posting more progress pics and step by steps. The paint is just wet right now and I don’t want to move it.
Started these Minecraft heads this morning with my youngest. He helped me paint.
Ender Dragon and Steve.
These are the cosplays my boys requested for BCC and Halloween (since they’re a week apart). I’m considering making myself one because they’re rather simple and Minecraft is huge atm. I’m also a big Minecraft fan too. Maybe a creeper or zombie.
For Steve we’ll just be painting the head, my youngest son won’t wear the full boxy costume, so we’ll put him in Steve colored clothes. He requested a pick axe ⛏ or sword so we’ll make one of those too. Then he’ll be done.
Ender Dragon will be worn by big brother, he requested the wings, spikes and tail. I may find a way to add purple glow sticks or lights for a little special effect. Haven’t decided if I should make the boxy legs and arms yet, he may not wear them, so I sort of dont want to waste my time if he decides he wont.
Anyway, that’s where I’m at on that.
Dropping a selfie to say hi!
How are all of you?
I talk about myself a lot here, I know, that’s sorta the point. But this isn’t all about me.
What are you guys doing? What are you working on? What are you excited about or looking forward to?
And it’s done. Looks pretty good, if I do say so myself.
Especially considering it started out as a cheap, broken toy gun and some discarded material from a T-shirt.
I also decided, after watching the new trailer, to use the bazooka for a different cosplay. Probably my Tiny Tina, since she is the explosives expert.
More progress. BANG flag has been painted on both sides.
The pistol was just a simple toy pistol. I painted it with a base of metallic acrylic paint. After drying I added a slightly darker tint of the metallic to the rotator and other areas that would be ‘shadowed’. And a layer of green on the hilt.
To finish it, I added a layer of clear/shiny sealer to help prevent scratching and damage (drying now)
To complete the pistol I will simply be gluing the stick of the flag inside the barrel of the pistol.
Honestly, the hardest part about of this has been having to wait for the paint dry.
But, of course I will be posting a completely finished photo.
So I whipped this up quicker than I was expecting while I was waiting for the paint on the BANG gun to dry.
I’m doing a base layer of black spray paint (drying now) before painting the details. It looks like garbage at the moment, because it is, but with the black base it’ll really come together. More progress pics incoming.
Does this count as recycling? Look at me being all environmentally friendly 😂 *coughs in spray paint fumes*
After an impulsive decision, I decided it would be good to have a prop or 2 for the Joker shoot. Granted, I don’t know what any of the props will look like from the movie, so I’m taking a very general approach. Bang pistol, and possibly a bomb and bazooka if I have time.
Since the movie appears to be based a few decades back, I’m using a toy revolver instead of the glock (don’t judge, I don’t really know guns), so it will fit the era better.
More progress to come.
Not the best picture, and I’ve barely gotten anything done.
Starting an Amara cosplay for my mom so we can match at Baltimore Comic Con.
We traded off, since she has a sewing machine, she is starting the base dress for my Starlight cosplay and I’m doing her Amara cosplay.
Amaras color scheme is slightly different, but I’m theorizing there will be a skin option close to this, and the effect will be the same either way, you’ll know who she is supposed to be.
Cell shading is quite simple, but time consuming. You’re simply doing edges, shadows and creases in black, and highlights in white. I find already used clothes make this easier, as they are already wrinkled and creased, it takes much of the guess work out. And painting with a light source is very useful, as it creates the shadows and highlights you can follow. And the more detail the better. I even shaded and highlighted the studs on the vest.
The gun was a Flipfury Nerf gun I painted to resemble a Tediore or Hyperion weapon. It’s not an exact replica of any ingame gun, but does strongly resemble one.
There is much work to do on this, I’ve only just started, but I’m excited to share the progress. Lots of little details and parts to make. And the final results paired with my Tina should be awesome.
Also for Baltimore Comic Con, I will be taking my 2 boys for one of the three days, so I’ll be starting cosplays for them also. My youngest, Joey, has been dressing up as Steve from Minecraft, so I’ll be making him a Steve head ( modified so he can use it with his disability). Teddy, my oldest, is still undecided, but will probably want a Steve head also. The boys comic con cosplays and Halloween costumes are still pending, they’re rather indecisive. But their costumes are usually quiet simple and don’t take as much work ( a personal choice since they don’t really pose for pictures and will ruin or outgrow it quickly)
Just some random goofy moments while shooting. This place was so cool and so much fun to be at.
Again, why not both?
Character over Reputation
Why not both?
No lie, I’ve always wanted to be in a Roller Derby as a jammer, I think it would be a blast
Hope you’re ready for some of this. Got a bunch of it incoming
Last Call for this print selection.
If you would like one of these signed prints as part of your patronage, message me the number you would like and the address you would like it sent to. (Daniel, I have not forgotten about you, promise). I will be mailing prints next week.
If you would like to wait, I will be updating my print selection with different options mid September to late September (after I get a couple shoots done)
New print options will include: Not So Tiny Tina & Alice in Wonderland.
I apologize for drop in activity.
I’ve been getting my oldest ready for school. Tbh, I’m incredibly overwhelmed, both by school and emotions.
His orientation was today, we went with him to class, we met his teacher, saw his classroom and some of his classmates. Tomorrow (Thursday) is his first day by himself, and my anxiety is through the roof. I’ve been on the verge of a panic attack all day. He’s so quiet and shy, I just want him to find his way, so I’m scared.
But we all start small, and with practice, grow into capable adults. Pictured is my first day of Kindergarten. I made it, so I know he will.
Anyway, trying to come up with some simple ideas to whip up quick to fill gaps between shoots, so if anyone has suggestions, I will take them.
Also going to update the Prints selection. I want to make sure everyone has a chance to select their print (if desired) before changing up the selection in October.
Gonna try to make this in time for Baltimore Comic Con.
Also, if anyone has questions about anything, please feel free to ask.
You guys mean a lot to me, I want to make this a good experience for you, so any questions, comments, suggestions, anything, talk to me.
Minus the green hair.
Still, I think could be one of my best.
I need the green hair, but not until closer to the shoot.
What do you guys think?
One of my current projects.
Making an Amara cosplay for my mom, she’s going to be my partner at BCC, at least 1 day.
I’ll be starting it tonight. Progress pictures to come.
Arranging a shoot for Alice in Wonderland
And doing a makeup test (prolly tomorrow) for Joker, then setting up that shoot.
First step in making some demon horns.
Paper towel roll and masking tape. A lot of masking tape. Copious amounts of masking tape.
I glued on lace to add a little detail.
It’s a plan. Not a very good one.
Gonna share a couple of the more candid moments from the shoot today.
I haven’t got most of the pictures back yet, but a few candids from one of the girls that was there. I’m really excited to see the finished pictures!
Tomorrow (Friday) going on a trip to some waterfalls with my kids and mom. Will try to get pictures.
Saturday: Group fantasy shoot. I’m really anxious about it and it feels like half my brain shut off because of it. But I think it will be a good learning experience and I’ll share when I get the pictures back from it.
Sunday: Sunday I’ll be doing response videos on IG. Maybe a cosplay or two.
I e been kinda brain dead this week. Just feeling overwhelmed by a lot of things. I’ll get more active and start posting more projects and selfies here.
I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Keep a look out for new posts.
Just one of my random ideas.
I mean sort of, I’ve got Halloween on my mind.
What kind of Halloween cosplays and costumes would you like to see?
This is one of my bigger projects I’m working on.
A femme version of The Joker, the new movie.
This is a costest of what I have so far.
Makeup and hair will definitely help.
I’m torn on the shorts. Contemplating whether I should work with the shorts, or change it to a skirt or some pants.
Challenge posts incoming on IG.
Someone said more Karen and I may have taken it too far
Going to edit this one some more, probably to look like a comic
Edited more last night, went a little overboard
The blue washed out 😭😭
I redid the blue in a different kind of dye, something I just had laying around from a snow painting kit.
Soaked it. Dried it. Did not wash it yet.
Going to do an at home shoot with it tomorrow before I wash it again.
