One More Time a Daft Punk Tribute

A while back I was commission by a friend to do some clean up work on their new set of helmets that were needed for tour and photo shoots. They needed to be super smooth because they had to look flawless once they were chromed.

This is how they looked when they were dropped off. The gold and chrome ones were their old touring helmets and were left just for reference.

On the blue helmet there were a bunch of imperfections that were left in the casting from the key locks on the mold. They had to be filled and sanded smooth several times just to make sure there would be no issues with them.

The other helmet had a few minor spots that had to be fixed, and my friend wanted the helmet to be a little thicker. Another coat of fiberglass was added to the inside and then covered with a black resin to completely seal the fiberglass. Also a waste mold was made so a vacuform buck could be made so we could make clear visors in the future.

Once I had a good piece for the vacuform buck I could then cut off the dome on the helmet.

Here are a few of the unedited promo shots. Helmets look super smooth and super clean!

Casey Jones Photo Shoot

About a month back I finished up my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Casey Jones costume and wanted to do a photo shoot of the finished costume. A friend of mine shot the photos while I was dressed in the costume, and I am very pleased the way they turned out.

Who are you?

This is the Bane mask that I built from scratch for a commission. It is made of urethane rubber and resin with magnetic openings on the sides. I will go into detail on the mask at a later date, but for now enjoy the pretty pictures.

Joker's M76 for The Dark Knight

Back in the day when I used to dress up as the Joker for comic con's and Halloween I wanted a prop that I could carry around with me. Now I figured most people dressing up would choose a knife or a joker card, but I wanted something a little more unique. I chose his gun from the street truck scene, the M76. I first researched as much as I could of the weapon saving every picture I came across so I could eventually make a blueprint of it.

I then figured out which materials I wanted to use to make this prop and designed a few templates to be laser cut. Not going to go into the details of the build as this was several years ago, but I'll show you some pictures and you will get the idea. Thanks for looking and enjoy.

Gizmo Update

Small Update: I have all the parts needed to complete this Gizmo. I first need to paint the silicone pieces, then I can assemble him and add the fur.

Laser Swords

A few months ago I posted a teaser picture of a project I had been working on for Voyage Trekkers season 2. Well now that we are days from Phoenix Comicon I'm gonna show you what was it that box. I present to you... Laser Swords! A must have for your dueling needs.

The Amazing Spider-man!

This costume was built when my Spider-man 3 symbiote suit could not be finished in time for Halloween. It was a pretty easy costume to build, and probably the most difficult part was designing the print for the front and back of the shirt in Adobe Illustrator. The pattern was cut in vinyl and applied to the shirt as a stencil, then sprayed over with Design Masters black spray paint for fabric.
