Sorry for setting Originality at 1 star since it's a reworked existing map after all... in all other aspects the map is a stunning piec...


Loki staff - Avengers
Another commission completed and waiting to be sent off!
A stage cosplay prop for Loki - replica of the long staff. 

Built around a bent PVC pipe with wooden finials, layered with EVA foam, coated with Worbla (as the bottom right photo shows). Painted with Rustoleum primer, Krylon Shortcut gold, black acrylic drybrushed for aging and sealed with Rustoleum Crystal varnish. The blade edges additionally shinied up with aluminium adhesive foil. 
The crystal (ahem, a Chupa-Chups container) is fitted with five blue LEDs, wrapped in layers of mere plastic bags to diffuse light.
Skyrim Iron Dagger build stages
Base is a thin beechwood board (fruit box), one layer for the blade, three for the guard, hot-glued together.
Handle slabs are sanded our of pine board.
Next, the blade, guard and pommel are covered in Worbla (BubbleStar thermoplastic sheet, to be exact).
Following that, the handle is stained, fitted with rivets and wire wraps.
Then the blade was sprayed with a shiny metallic paint, which after a lot of cursing I had to blend with a little flat black. Final shading was done with a marker, using the ancient technique of finger-rubbing.
Skyrim Iron Dagger and stuff
I'm trying on with the Worbla and wood props and weapons making. This was an experiment in intentionally coarse, rough surfaces and the Skyrim iron weapons were just the right type.

Thanks to TheAntiliy for inspiration and Andrewbig for the excellent lineart that helped in designing the piece. 
LED Spell Bracelets
LARP season is coming (and cabinet RGP season never ends). So, you're the healer, killer, buffer, debuffer etc. - but in words only.
Why not add a bit of visual effects to your game persona?

Those unobtrusive faux leather bracelets are fitted with pressure-activated LED lights, and a light touch of your wrist to the target causes a flash of colour, especially bright in dim lighting. All colours can be fitted for coding spell effects (incl. UV for revealing secret messages). 
Kubo and the Two Strings - Sword
A just-completed commission I'm allowed to post photos of.
My first experiment with BubbleStar (Worbla) for the finer details - and I'm officially in love. Blade is a pice of pine board as usual, tsuba carved from linden wood. The "rayskin" texture on the handle is... peas. Halves of dried split peas glued onto the handle, with a white heatshrink tube shrunk over them.  Gold spray, aluminium foil, and that's all!
