There is how I made my Winter Soldier’s arm!

First, I’m sorry about my english, hope you’ll understand me :) Second, it was lame, cheap and very fast work, because I had no time, no money and couldn’t think in these last “deadline” days before AVA-expo.

Idea was taken from filming photos, but it’s not exactly copy of movie arm.

Actually, there are no secrets. Only one: cyber-arm have to fit to your real one right to a tee.

So, there is step by step guide:

1. (You need an assistant on this step) I and sister used simple plastic bags and tape.

She wrapped my hand with it, in several layers. Cut through with scissors, take off and paste together. Now, you need something to fill this form. We used old newspapers. Now you have your hand’s model!

image

2. You need to repeat first step with model’s shoulder, but with masking tape. Don’t forget separating layer, you’ll have to put it off from model later!

3. Cover masking tape layer with PVA Glue or TESCO or something else… I’m not sure it works exactly like a PVA made in Russia… You need to get flexible waterproof coating.

4. I took dry putty and mixed it with PVA Glue. It provide strength increase and make form a little flexible. So, spread putty to cover angles, 2-3mm layer. Wait to full drying.

5. Take abrasive and polish.

6. Repeat steps 5-6 once or twice to get smooth surface.

7. Draw lines to make grooves. Take a stationery knife or scalpel or something you like and cut grooves. Take round Needle file and make grooves wide and uniform.

8. Cut all the edges. On the inner side cut along. I made it zig-zag, don’t know why.

image

I also cut star to put there glowing panel. It didn’t work, by the way )))) Maybe battery was low…

9. Cover form with PVA. Twice.

10. To join edges on the inner side I sticked the elastic band between it.

image

I thought I need sophisticated system of belts under my dress to fix this shoulder on my shoulder, but this isn’t required! Elastic band fasten it sufficiently! And it looks natural! And all this became possible because it made exactly by my own arm.

11. Forearm was made easier. It’s almost conical so I just wrapped model-arm with thermo-plastic.

image

Next I made grooves like in step 7.

12. Now - paint all with metallic paint with chrome effect. Paint grooves black.

image

13. I had no more time to make proper junction between shoulder and forearm, so it was just a simple lazy bodyart )))

Sincerely yours,

Evgeniya a.k.a. mercury and Alexandra a.k.a Daisy.

…and, I can’t finish without it: from Russia with love! )))

Coming soon - Sailor Moon hair clips!

We’ve received numerous requests for hairclips. So we have put our 3d printer to work. These hairclips are printed from pearly white plastic and are a little different than your standard hairclips. There winged part attaches to the metal alligator clip by neodymium magnets. This allows for lots of versatility, and makes them really easy to place and position in your hair. You can actually hide the metal clip within your hair, and place the winged part over top of it (as illustrated in the first picture). They are also fairly light weight and comfortable, I often forget that I am wearing them! ^___^;; We kind of went through all our plastic while we were printing our prototypes, so we hope to have them up in the shop next month. We plan to sell them for $25/pair.

Also, just a reminder that I opened some pre-orders for most compacts and necklaces.

So yes hello long time no post here!!

This is may or may not be a surprise. I cosplayed one more time, as my always and forever hero, Xena. Inspired by Isaiah's art of how Mulan looks very badass dressing up as Xena, so I decided to cosplay her. 

I made the armour for the costume, you can check the progress on my art/craft blog.

I hope you all doing well, I’m quite surprise that most of you are still here. I wish you all the great things in life and have a wonderful day!

(also yes I met Lucy Lawless ((more like Lucy Flawless)) and she is a form of perfection.)

I like the look on Lucy’s face.
