I’ve been injured for a couple months now, and I don’t see an end in sight, but my boy made me an entire ghostbusters cosplay so I can bust ghosts with him. My boy and by best buddy are helping me finish up the secret surprise cosplay I’m working on. That will be up here soon enough Hopefully this hand will be fixed up soon so I can get back to making things.
How did you make your wings for your Castiel & Dave cosplay?
I very loosely followed this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62jhoXa4ckI Instead of using body posture I just put rings on the strings and pull on them when I want to extend the wings. Other things I did differently were that I didn’t make an elbow joint so I just have a M shape and instead of a block of wood I used a sturdy backpack. I zip-tied the frame into the backpack and put grommets in to hide the string inside the backpack a bit, For fabric I used felt. These wings are super easy and really really strong against being jostled around at a con. People have been really rough on them and the worst that happened is the kite string I used broke.(It rubs on one of the grommets).
I have 300 followers. ;u;
Here is a photo (with horrible lighting) of a Derspit keychain.
The juju lollipop and John’s lollipop. These are super easy patterns as well.
Alternate Time keychain. It’s a little smaller but I think it looks a little better.
I’m going to test this out later tonight if I have time. The towers should be made like legs on a lizard or turtle or something similar. They should poke out at an angle and be pretty cool if I am correct.
If you wanted to you could add towers to the planet by doing the same “leg” technique if you really wanted to.
Edit: The Derspit I made used 3ft of rexlace.
I was having fun designing god tier keychain bead patterns tonight. (Beadie-buddy style) I’ll post some more later tonight as well.
These are super basic. (A quick youtube search brings up a ton of videos like this: link if you don’t know how to make “bead pets” / “beadie buddies”)
