I'm a costumer of 15 years with a crazy interest in cosplay. I'm hoping to make this blog an informative place to learn about and become a better costumer/cosplayer. Although, sometimes the blogs will just be randomness pulled from my head. Enjoy!
In keeping with my Prop Making adventures.. Here's Jack's mask.
So I started with a Pepakura model for Jack Skellington which I had to enlarge to fit over my noggin.
Here's video with annotations on putting together the paper model.
Then when I all done, it looked like this.
Then several weeks later, I coated the outside with resin for sturdiness. However the saturation of the cardstock caused the model to warp and the heat from the resin curing melted the hotglue in a few places, so that'll have to corrected before I can move on. But here's pics.
You can see, Jack's a little more egg-shaped now, but I SHOULD be able to correct that.
Lastly, here's a few pics with the eyes and mouth partially opened up. The mask might be a TAD large, but I eventually want to work up to Jack on stilts with arm extensions so the mask will be good then. I'll basically have visibility through the mouth. And maybe I can put fans in the eyes.... we'll see.

It was an awesome con. It's mostly gaming. Rooster Teeth is a website/company most known for it's Red vs. Blue series.... and let me just say, they host an amazing con--especially for a con that's only in its third year. Everything was organized and well-planned and I had a great time... I'm pretty sure the press pass helped...
If you're legal, you can buy these in the dealer room.
But what was really awesome was the premiere of RWBY (pronounced 'Ruby'). It's only in it's 5th episode, but it's already shaping up to be a good series. One thing the guys at Rooster Teeth are getting good at is blending kick ass action with stor…
So I've just looked at my last entry here and it was back in June... I am SO SORRY!!!! I've been such a horrible blogger. But hopefully you've been following my Facebook or my YouTube channel and have seen some of my more recent activity.
So here's a bullet point list of some of the things that have happened since I've last posted. And I promise to expand on some of these in short time...these are in no particular order... for now, progress pics can be found on my Facebook page and videos can be found on my YouTube channel.
In the past 2 months I... Went to RTX in Austin. Saw the premiere of the RWBY. Which you should be checking on on roosterteeth.com. RWBY is a new anime series and one of, if not, the first American made animes ever. Posted a workvlog video of a new mask for Jack. The video is on my YouTube Channel.Got a wig for Crona and cut and styled it.Made serious progress on Crona and hope to finish it in the next few days aka before A-Fest.Made a Sho…
