Foam and Worbla armour MEGA TUTORIAL
Tutorial by AmenoKitarou
Super duper awesome and helpful! I am totally going to try this out for my Garrosh cosplay.
THIS IS HOW IT’S DONE, KIDS. I didn’t use any worbla, b/c tis expensive and I used the fiberglass resin, but the foam shaping? exactly it.
I use hot glue instead, but a lot of glues work on foam because of all the tiny holes. Armor is easier than you think! One note, though. When curving pieces like that, with cuts, be sure to make symmetrical cuts on symmetrical parts. Don’t finish one then try to remember what you did on the other.
it’s so cute when you talk to someone a lot and then you notice the little phrases that you use and the stupid little things you say slipping into their vocabulary more and more

Upon second viewing, I have definitely concluded that Guardians of the Galaxy is even better when you imagine it as a tabletop campaign with an increasingly frustrated DM who’s sick of being interrupted.
GM: “Roll 2d10.”
Peter: “Red high. Twelve.”
GM: “You have 12 percent of a plan.”
The entire prison break scene was just Rocket’s player rolling knowledge checks on every turn until something worked.
- When Drax’s player said, “I go into the phone booth and call Ronan to Knowhere”, the DM stared open-mouthed for a minute, then called break time. The rest of the party was speechless.
- Pretty much just in general, Drax’s player is one of those people who thinks Chaotic Neutral means “throws self at shit for the lulz” and is really fortunate he didn’t have many other opportunities to derail the campaign.
- Gamora’s player gets really exasperated by the entirety of the campaign. They rolled a character with a tragic backstory and clear hooks to the villain to expand on, and had no idea that everyone else was going to be so silly. It leads to begging the party to just once execute a normal plan because look at Gamora’s stealth bonus, this min/maxed assassin needs a chance to use her abilities, please.
- Rocket’s a skill monkey who, if not for Drax’s grand display of idiocy, would have gladly derailed the campaign with absurd plans.
- Groot was a joke idea someone came up with that people ended up liking too much.
- Ronan’s confusion when Star Lord began dancing was the DM’s confusion verbatim.
- The DM now vetoes Chaotic Neutral characters on principle.
This is an illustration I did for the August 2014 issue of Popular Science Magazine. The assignment was to show a scifi take on human aging in the future. I wanted to do something relatively positive, so I drew a lady whose life has been been prolonged through cybernetic enhancements and augmentation, so she gets to spend time with her great-great-great-great grandchildren.
Thanks to AD Michelle Mruk!
this is beautiful

@emilie-elegy (whose url will not tag, for some reason…)
Both winners will shortly receive an ask in your inbox as to your choices and address! Thanks for playing everybody!
Holy shit! 100 people like my blog enough to stick around! (I see you there Sammy. gimpy62 :] ) So, to celebrate both that and getting my 3d printer functioning wonderfully, I’m doing a giveaway! I am a crafty sort of person, as you may have noticed, so All the things I am giving away are handmade (handprinted, whatever) and can also be found in my etsy shop. The winner will receive 3 of the following:
- one large (15cm^3 max) 3d printed object of your choosing, you provide the model.
- 3 small (5cm^3 each max) 3d printed objects, ditto.
- A clockwork and TARDIS bracelet
- A Paperman Plane in a Bottle necklace
- Clockwork Pin of your choice: round, square, bird, sun, moon.
- A plushie owl, of any color combination.
Mix and match! All of the prizes can be personalized or modified.
Note: 3d printed things may require some dialogue, since the files must A) be in .stl, .obj, or .ipt format and B) be manifold/watertight. Alternatively, I can model an object for you, but my skills or limited at organic shapes.
And now the hard part, rules.
- you must be following me. uh duh.
- you must reblog this post, once. no likes, multiple reblogs don’t count.
- no giveaway blogs, generally don’t be a tool.
- The giveaway lasts until September 1st, when the winner is chosen randomly. Some of you may know the significance, and you get lovepoints from me. Any reblogs after that don’t count.
I will of course need the winner’s address once they have been picked. I also may add things to that list! I’ll announce any changes though. Have fun, kids!
much love, Sansone
Last call, loves. Entries after midnight will not be accepted. I shall announce the winner tomorrow morning
