Resin casting is something I would like to have a go at some time. But if you manage to cast the rings yeah a star ring would be great. ^_^
I heard resin casting is not as easy as people think it is (air bubbles etc). And that silicone for making the molds is mucho expensive..

If I can manage a Star-Sapphire costume I must admit I think I'd look better in the all in one costume. Does that make it Carol or Fatality?


Depends which variant and era your doing it from, modern era Carol and star sapphires have full body suit with lots of gaps over body parts XD classic silver era carol its like one full suit and debatable that it even is spandex XD let me know if you need any refs or ideas XD

as for resin casting yeah its difficult, there are ways around air bubbles *tapping the table/air compressor* silicone is...well not cheap but affordable it would cost 40 to get me started I think, especially since im recasting the rings from the DC freebies with blackest night XD it will be very much trial and error, if I can cast em im sure I can show you were to get a star sapphire ring from XD

In some of the artwork the costume looks more like a swimsuit with thighboots, and other artwork it looks more like a full body suit with gaps down the centre. I would like to have a go at making the latter costume.

that would probabaly be your best bet tbh. the tiara is probably gonna be the hardest thing O_O if you were considering making the lantern there is a great way to make one by building on a rechargable camping lantern from tesco!!! XD

I'm afraid not I really should have I just didnt think it looked good XD the non lightable one is easy enough to build.

Ive wrote down pretty much what I did here, if its any help.

1. Appropriate bowls for the lamps vent bits

2. A globe of the world *appropriate size, this might take some searching but there are usually a lot*

3. Now the the base and top of the lantern is open to interpretation as it takes some finding of bits from local Tescos and stuff, what I used was some plastic tupper wear bowls that were of appropriate shape and made like the main base with a larger one and the narrower bit with a smaller one XD

4. I found that screwing the lantern parts into place worked the best XD

but if you are having mega trouble I can take photos of things you can use from Tesco or whatever ^.- once you have the globe it really is just simple XD

Luke.

Thanks for that. You really did well finding the bowls just the right shape. I honestly thought you had found an old railway guards lamp or sommut and painted it. Kudos to your awesome prop making skills. ^_^

So put me as a maybe xD


18 May 2010 - 20:0732252
Could you put me down as a maybe for Poison Ivy? I'm going to have to put a lot of courage into wearing the outfit ^^;


19 May 2010 - 13:3832284
Count me in for Speedy II! I know I'm going to hate myself for running around in lycra, but someone's got to do the HIV Heroine proud!

At least there's enough of us to hopefully curb my need to start giggling like a maniac (as is so often the case when I'm nervous!)
