I am a physics graduate student who loves to make stuff in my spare time. I especially enjoy creating wearable art such as jewelry and costumes, and I also occasionally draw and paint when I have the time. Most of my art is fantasy-themed or inspired, and I often make fan-art of my favorite video games, books, and shows.

Current Project - Abyss Watcher from Dark Souls 3, which I hope to have done for PAX East 2017.


Farron Greatsword (Dark Souls 3)

Here are some shots of the completed Farron Greatsword (Dark Souls 3) for my Abyss Watcher cosplay. I used a wood/PVC core with EVA foam on top, covered everything in Thibra, smoothed with Bondo, and did the detailing with apoxie sculpt. Then tons and tons of sanding to get it very smooth for the metallic finish. It's a bit on the heavy side, but still manageable. And it looks so realistic the security guard at PAX East didn't believe me when I said it was mostly plastic XD

I plan to make a second sword with flaming LED effects so I can cosplay the embered (boss fight phase 2) version.

Dark Souls Black Knight - PAX East 2017

I had fun wearing my black knight on Friday at PAX East, although I ended up only wearing the helmet for a couple hours because it's hard to see with my eyes blacked out and no one can hear anything I say lol (I know, I could just not black out my eyes like at Dragon Con, but it looks kind of derpy). This costume holds up well, only needing a few minor repairs after three cons. Definitely one of my favorites.

Dark Souls 3 Abyss Watcher Cosplay - PAX East 2017
Thank you to the amazing people at the Bandai Namco / Dark Souls booth at PAX East this year for noticing and taking pictures of both my Abyss Watcher and Black Knight and for letting me try out the new DLC (It looks awesome, although I was kind of terrible at it because bulky gauntlets and I'm used to playing on PC XD). 

(Lots more coming soon.  I have a backlog of Abyss Watcher pictures I need to post here.  My DA tends to lag behind my Facebook and Tumblr pages lol)
Dark Souls Abyss Watcher WIP - Belts

Belts, belts, so many belts! These are all real leather that I cut, dyed, and weathered myself. Most of the buckles and stuff are real metal, but I did make a couple things out of thibra painted silver, and am glad that they're not very obvious. The chrome spray paint I found is awesome.

I'm also working on throwing knives for my pauldron. I used veg tan leather for the sheaths (still need to be dyed) and two layers of thibra for blades (still need to be painted silver). I was originally going to glue the knives in or maybe use magnets so they're removable, but I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that the knives stay in from friction alone. I'll also be making the little strap thingies that go over the sheaths, once that's all dyed and ready to be attached to the belt.

Still on schedule for PAX East w00t w00t :-D

Dark Souls 3 Farron Greatsword WIP

Of course my Abyss Watcher cosplay wouldn’t be complete without the Farron Greatsword (and dagger, but more about that later)!  I’ve been working on this for over a week, but until recently, it didn’t look good enough to share a picture.  This thing is 5.5 feet long, almost as tall as I am!  

I started with a yardstick bolted to a pvc pipe, added a wooden extension to the yardstick to make it longer, then covered the whole thing in EVA foam.  After chamfering the foam, I covered it in Thibra.  Because I’m the absolute worst at making clean shallow angles with my dremel (I need a belt sander, yo), I’ve been sanding the ever living crap out of this thing for the past week.  First bondo, then apoxie sculpt to get the larger imperfections, then spot putty.  Still a lot of work to do, but it’s getting there.  And my new handheld power sander is amazing. 

Unless something terrible happens, this should definitely be ready in time for PAX East :-D

Any chance you can take pictures of the swords you made
SilverIceDragon1 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2017  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Which one?  The only sword I've made from scratch is El'druin (Tyrael's sword).  The black knight sword is a modified store-bought toy because I ran out of time (hence the inaccuracy and size difference).  Apparently I forgot to post the tutorial I made for that, but I just posted it.
