DropBOB commissioned project – Pyramid Head – Packing and shipping!

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!

DropBOB commissioned project – Pyramid Head – Ready for Approval

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.

Especially when the information you want to convey/receive is not fully defined yet.

Bobby’s Silent Hill: Pyramid Head Costume 2015 – Week 2 Progress

So I’ve almost completed the head part of this costume. And since I’ll be attending the Vancouver Halloween Parade, I have to make sure not to put any gore and blood on it as its a “family” oriented event. But don’t worry, The gore will be added after this. Since last week, I’ve added mesh & cast iron pipes & foam. I started trying to screw in the mesh with fasteners and washers … but it was actually way stronger and faster to just hot glue it. The foam was glued in using my favorite glue: PL 8x I haven’t yet […]
