Convention Props!

Earlier this month, I swung by the Sun Coast CGA show to hang out with some of the local cosplay community. The week before was spent prepping a few swords to take with my, and the night before I threw together a (pretty bad) costume.

Buster Soldier Leafa Final Fantasy Sword Art Online

Completed Buster and SOLDIER swords, along with a mockup for a future project.

Aside from the already completed Kingdom Key, I brought along the Buster Sword and a quick-build SOLDIER Sword. The paint on the new pieces was rushed and needs reworking, but that didn’t stop folks at the con from posing for pics! Images after the break.

Weekend Prop Progress: 10/07/2013

Internet troubles have kept me from updating, but I’ve kept my nose to the grindstone and nearly wrapped up a number of projects!

New Office, ModiBot BuildLab, and a Near-Complete OMW Recon

Things finally settled down in May, and production picked up! Things’re moving forward steadily! Find out about the new ModiBot BuildLab and see the latest images […]
