A new chapter!

I just opened my Etsy store to sell my leather goods.  There isn’t a ton of stuff in there but I am treating like a regular job for now and devoting the better part of each day to working on products to add.

Wow, did I ever let things slide away!

This last Spring LARP season was a ton of fun. I cannot wait until September. I am going to attempt to do two events in the same month. I know some of you do that on a regular basis but I have been approached to head the décor team for Oz, so my between games time is going to be largely focused on getting props and décor built which leaves less time to gear up for a LARP with totally different costuming requirements. I also hope to post some tutorials.

I will post photos of the two NERF conversions I did for Oz last month. I built two long rifles out of the Retaliator and the Mega Magnus respectively. The addition of a long barrel and a stock do nothing what so ever to improve the accuracy of the blasters, but they do look pretty groovy.

I am working diligently on my paper crafting this summer as well. I hope to have products up for sale via before the end of summer. I also was given the thumbs up to use the rules mechanics for Oz in my own RPG setting. So once I am out of the writing/editing process I can start gathering people to playtest a new high fantasy LARP.

I made a holster for a blaster for a friend and I sort of bungled the method by which it would ride on her belt so I took it apart and used it as a pattern for this holster.  I then decided I needed to tool something into the leather.  Something I have not done since I was a teenager.  It doesn’t totally suck.  I am going to call this a win.

Steam Eye!

I was asked to do a steampunk eye replacement for a LARP character.  I have not done the strap yet, owing to the late hour but this is basically done.

I made a few little dragons this evening, I need to make more as these are a little rough but they have a bit of cute to them.
