Journal

The Back of the Helmet (Posted 28th March 2014)

For the back of the helmet I cut, ironed and sew together about 30 strips of brown suede. I really like this effect ^^

Electronics of Wireeeenessss (Posted 10th March 2014)

Spent all of today working on the Helmet. The Perspex was alot harder to bend then I thought it would be, ended up burning myself a few times trying to pour hot water over it, because I didn't have a container big enough xP.

I actually planned ahead a little bit by drilling air holes into the mask (first time for everything). Now all I have to do is hope when I add the back it still looks circular *fingers crossed*.

The electronics threw me at first because I hadn't realized the current needed to run the LED's as I'm using different ones to normal.But everything is sorted and working now ^^, each of the LED's is wired separately to some prototyping board at the side of the mask, so if any of the connections break I'll only loose one light instead of all of them.

Dyeing Is a Success!! (Posted 26th February 2014)

Spent a whole day trying out different natural dyes for my costume. I had a HUGE success, and completely happy with my experiments.

I used red cabbage, pomegranates and onions for the different dyes, I was really surprised that red cabbage makes blue dye. I didn't believe it until I saw it! And the blue is the perfect shade for my costume ^^. Now all I have to do is find a way of dying whole meters of fabric at once, evenly....
