Well that’s the Captain America shield finished!😁 I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t over the moon with it. I’ve learned a lot from building this and I also know what else I need to work on (airbrushing for a start😂) I was very tentative when I started weathering, it’s quite daunting getting stuck into a lovely paint job with some 120 grit sandpaper!😅 But I persevered, and I think it worked out well in the end. Let me know what you think!
Follow up to my previous post on my thrift store score: it’s the GE Quad -IV utility light used in #aliens Skimming the web I saw something on a mod that may have been done to control the light combination with a toggle switch added to this otherwise unaltered flashlight. Ripley and Hicks pass it along to Bishop when he does that long crawl through the claustrophobic tube scene. I’m not a big collector of Aliens props but I do love the movie. I just couldn’t pass it up when I found it. I really love the hunt for parts at #thriftstore whenever I’m out. #salvationarmy provide such a great resource for #makers and #propbuilders and save you a lot of $$ along the way.

#fbf memories of Christmas. We’ve had this book in this case with that bell since I can consciously remember what Xmas is. I made my parents read it every day of December and felt special when I could hear that little bell. And then I’d make them put it away right after Christmas so it would be special again next Dec. 🎄 #christmasmemories#nostalgic
You can see him for blocks. Just follow the Mickey on the rooftop! (Picture a day from the house.) enjoy! More to come!
Happy Christmas-time friends! I’m getting very ready over here and wanted to start sharing a few memories with you. 👇🏻👇🏻❄️ . . This is a big ceramic tree from well over 35years ago I always remember putting up with my great Aunt every year in the window when I was allowed. I still look forward to putting it up/protecting it as my favorite decoration we own to date. Here’s to traditions! What’s yours??🎄☃️ #fostersholidays
Painting is complete! My new airbrush really helped to put a nice metallic copper layer over the base black before I dry brushed the silver and added the oil paint weathering to give the gun that ‘greasy’ finish in all the nooks and crannies. Really happy with how it’s turned out! I still have a couple of screws to attach and then I’ll mount the gun to a base to finish it off before I give it to my Dad at Christmas.
I've been somewhat of a bump on a log since my printer broke but I've been taking the past couple of days to reflect on things. And this year has been amazing for me. I've learned so much and feel like I've grown quite a bit from where the year started off. And its mainly because I have been so lucky to meet and become surrounded by so many amazingly talented and uplifting people. Who've been nothing but amazing and encouraging since. And I deffinitly dont know where I'd be in life right now if I hadn't. I've also had some amazing opportunities as well, ranging from getting to do a photoshoot with some amazing photographers at @blackcosplaymedia to building probably the best piece I've ever made for the amazingly beautiful @envyinferno. Even getting to meet the incredible @syntheticleezard who I found out was at dragoncon got lucky enough to say hi! I guess in a long winded way thank you so much.... all of you for being so incredible and so supportive. It's been one hell of a year... #lookingback#cosplayers#propbuilders#thankyou
