Oh no! It’s almost August!!
Busy, busy, busy! That’s what we have been! With the convention-heavy month of August catching up to us, like a runaway train, we have been busy indeed! Apologies to those asking for commissions, we just have not had the time to take any on right now!
While Courtney has been in New York visiting friends and family the past few weeks, Jay (aka the prop man) and I have been working on other things. My son did a cosplay of Chris Redfield, a S*T*A*R agent from the movie (and game series)Resident Evil, a few years back. At that time it was his first cosplay and I was not even sure what the word cosplay meant, so we pieced the outfit together from this and that, and ordered the harness Chris wears from a cheap-o overseas website. Well, ok, it wasn’t cheap financially, but boy was it cheap in construction! So it was time for a revamp.
First picture is the cheap plastic harness, second picture is construction underway on the new one, made from the same kind of material they make tactical harnesses out of, third one is the (almost) completed new harnass! Much better! All it needs is the sheath for the knife, which is also getting remade.
Speaking of the knife…..
Since the previous knife he was using was a plastic one from Toys R Us, we made him a new one from 1/4 inch Sintra with a nice, mahogany stained handle. Above pictures show the blade in it’s pretty stage, partially weathered stage, and final bloody/dirty/well-used stage.

Don’t forget to find us on Facebook or Deviant Art for more step-by-step details on how this, and our other projects, were made!
