So I’ve finally pulled the trigger on updating my site from the lazy WordPress.Com to the self managed WordPress.Org … you can search online for the details of the differences, but the major changes for me are these: More freedom (I can change anything I want. Basically I have a free reign … Which is necessary when you’re OCD like me) Infinite plugins! … oh man I love these awesome plugins Better RSS (e-mail post notification management)
I’ve managed to complete my Link from Legend of Zelda Cosplay a few weeks ago. Right on time for the Vancouver Fan Expo 2017. Turns out that I couldn’t make it to Fan Expo … You see, I had to spend the entire weekend in the hospital! And let me tell you … It was AWESOME! I am now the proud father of a Baby girl. Please do read my wife’s blog if you are interested in the details. I have broken up this cosplay update into 3 parts below. First I will start with Link’s Tunic, Then the Hylian […]
Each iteration being designed with the intent to be hyper connected with the world and it’s community.
So I’ve been back from holidays for about 2 weeks now, what do I have to show for this? Well, to be honest, not as much as I’d hoped. I’ve actually been struggling with a little bit of mild anxiety. This all started sometime while I was in Europe on vacation. I didn’t know it at the time, but it turns out Nasonex (a nasal steroid for allergies), has some side effects that actually affect me. Anxiety is not something I have ever really had. So it caught me off guard. I’ve stopped using the spray for about 2 weeks […]
So as I hinted from my last post. I have decided to delve right into the world of professional software development. I have started using “Eclipse” as my development platform for my IoT chip – ESP32 by Sparkfun. To be fair, I didn’t really have a choice. Not all of the features that I need this chip to do have been ported over into the “Arduino” platform yet. I’m sure it eventually will (possibly more than a year, as seen on the prior chip). So, I’m pulling up my big boy pants and learning all the things! I will be […]
I completed the Pyramid Head cosplay that was commissioned a few months ago. I wanted to share some of the images that Peculiarity Productions, a small stage production company, has shared with me.
So it turns out the Helmet was too big for my customer. The measurements seemed fine, and they were the same measurements as my own head so I thought it would have been perfect …
I’ve made an assembly video for the Pyramid Head cosplay I recently sold on my Etsy Shop. See below for the full assembly instructions (should take you about 25-30 min of assembly time): Hope you enjoy your new DropBOB Original!
Shipping is often overlooked by new businesses and startups. But it’s actually one of the most important things to review and plan for. I actually custom designed my shipping box so that I could ship as efficiently as possible. Often, if you are stuck using a standard box, you end up filling it with too much filler, and you pay (and charge) too much for what you’re shipping. So when I was designing the merchandise, I fully thought out the packing and shipping situation, all in virtual reality!
So I’ve completed the Made-to-Order Pyramid Head helmet for a Silent Hill Stage Production commissioned through my Etsy Shop. Here’s the Recap. I built most of the structure & was ready for paint just this past Weekend.
