March UFO Sightings in the Workshop

I've been running way behind on posting anything at all lately.  As is usually the case, whenever I've got time to write it feels like I've got nothing to write about.  Then whenever I've got interesting projects going on, I can't find time to write.

I will write more detailed write-ups as these projects get completed and I find breathing room.  In the meantime, here's a shotgun blast of photos of UnFinished Objects around the workshop lately.

Let me be clear, there's a lot of them:
Almost Halfway There

Those are just some of the several hundred parts that we've been making for the Mandalorian Death Watch and Night Owl costumes we'll be showing off at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim next month.  Here's one of them strapped together for a quick duct tape test fit on our smallest wearer:

As part of that project, we're making no less than 19 jetpacks:
Jetpack Makes Me Happy

On the subject of Star Wars, I'm also making a few Sith Acolytes from the Old Republic MMORPG.  Here's an in-progress shot of the mask:

I'll also be dressing the Lady Shawnon as Shae Vizla from the same game:

I'm a bit touched in the head, so cranking out thirty simultaneous Star Wars costumes* is apparently not enough.  That's why I've also been tinkering with my realistic interpretation of Captain Rex from the Clone Wars:
Rex Silver Base 2

On the subject of helmets, I'm still making slow headway on my War Machine helmet from Ironman 2:
Trimmed Castings Out of Mold

Of course, there's also the really big, super secret project going on over on the main workbench.  It's starting to get difficult to take any photos in the workshop without having some part of this thing visible in frame:

I can't tell you what it's going to be (other than "awesome" of course) but hopefully I'll get a chance to show off the finished result some months from now.
The next couple of months should make for some pretty exciting updates.  There will be Star Wars Celebration: Anaheim, the Bay Area Maker Faire, and Shawnon's next visit back in the states all coming up in short order.

So stay tuned for further updates...


  1. Just wondering for now, but how much would you charge for a commissioned helmet? Either iron man or Grif from RvB

  2. Excuse me,i can't find your email. Could you send your email for me?
