Please check out the new page I just added on our 3 Musketeers costumes!
I recently decided that it would be interesting to make some Handmines, from The Magician’s Apprentice episode of Doctor Who.
I started with some rubber dishwashing gloves, stuffed them with fiberfill, applied multiple coats of Rust-Oleum® American Accents® Stone Spray, and will be giving it an eye.
I just finished my first tricorn hat!
I purchased the wool felt capeline from Company Jedrzejko. This company is located in Poland, but the capeline plus shipping to Texas was less than $20.
I added wire to help in shaping the hat, followed by hand sewing the trim onto the edge of the hat.
You may recall that my original MPDA was made of baked fimo clay. I was never happy with it – the sculpted bits kept coming unglued from the phone case they were attached to and it looked anything but screen accurate.
One of my cosplay Missy friends has taken the time to model the MPDA in 3D and has it for sale on Shapeways. Size 1 is the size in the show and fits an iPhone 4. I’m not an iPhone user, so I had to also obtain a used iPhone. Anyway, size 1 is 3D printable now but you have to get it in 3 separate items – Faceplate, Lens Faceplate & Bumper/Connectors/Iris Bases.
I’m now almost complete with my MPDA 2.0!
The digital image files represented exactly what I received.
