With the materials all unpacked and ready to be assembled, today’s build day started out with a bang … or rather a high pitched hum of the Dremel saw. As per Jenny by-law (of which I haven’t been able to find in writing yet), the noise making was allowed to start at 11am. That’s pretty much when I started laying out the wooden frame patterns.
So the approvals are back! The Etsy listing updated and the order confirmed! Things are rolling. I’ve purchased all the materials needed from the hardware store. I’ll be picking this up tomorrow. Just in time for me to begin manufacturing on the weekend. Stoked!
So, I’ve completed the Design of the Pyramid head Cosplay that was requested . Below are the approval drawings created. I’m actually quite happy about how the design turned out. I’m really looking forward to making this thing! Just to give you an idea comparing this with my original design. I actually tried to ship the original design, but quickly learned about the rules of regular shipping (i.e less than 2.7m of Girth + length). Needless to say, the shipping (through LTL) was too much for the purchaser to accept. So I still have this packaged up. The original was a […]
So I’ve been busy working on finishing the Model and coming up with a good set of Approvals/Layouts for my commissioned Pyramid Head Cosplay. It’s been a real hit on my Etsy Page.

Especially when the information you want to convey/receive is not fully defined yet.
Currently working on a commissioned project. A re-make to my original Pyramid head Cosplay from back a few years ago. Now I can finally make it better!
Ya that’s my Dad up there. That’s right, the planet.
Just wanted to post a quick recap of the Vancouver Fan Expo while it’s fresh. This was the first year I attended and I must say, I was thoroughly impressed. Apparently there was over 25,000 people over 3 days. I only attended the Saturday. There were some really amazing costumes from creative to exact replicas … Some people even attended all 3 days with 3 entirely different cosplay costumes. #goals The following photos were taken by the lovely JellyJube, with some editing in Lightroom by moi. more pictures after the break … The amazing thing is that this cosplay held […]
This thing was heavy, but the custom foam on the interior made it really nice to wear. This little beauty was sold.
So … can you tell now what I’m working on? … Maybe you need to get back in touch with your inner 90’s-kid-playing-playstation-2 … I used to play this game with my brothers in the dark basement at night … It’s always stuck with me since.
This was a difficult cosplay, partially due to the size of the whole thing. It was difficult to get through doors. I tried to keep the weight down, so the hands were made of foam, but they did not last over time. But it was a sight to behold on Halloween day!
