New Year, New projects

For 2018, I have set up two costumes that I am going to build.

For yeas I’ve wanted to make a Darth Vader, but as I am 5 foot 10 (176 cm for those of you who like me use an understandable system of measurements), I am way too short to make one and be believable. There are no lifts in the world big enough for me to make this work.

So .. I decided upon this:

Dark Helmet from Spaceballs!

I searched the web for a good helmet but found none, so I ended up modelling my own from screen shots and reference pictures.
It also helps a bit to have a 3d scanned bust of yourself to mount things on and see how things look…

The second costume is a dream costume that I will take my time on.

I decided to splurge and buy the 3d printable wearable Robocop armour from do3d. It is a good start, but it has a lot of modifications that needs to be done in order to make it wearable and make it screen accurate. I will of course go for accuracy here.

These two sections will be added to this site, and stay tuned!
