A tip with MDF, see if you can get it from a local wood and timber yard, rather than somewhere like Homebase. Tends to be a significantly lower price. Where I get mine from currently, it works out...
MDF is a perfectly acceptable and safe wood to use. I personally use it all the time, and currently have around 5 longswords, multiple shields, staffs and a huge saw cleaver all made out of it among...
Yeah, the shit gets everywhere. Its stupid
I didn't mean to push you in to it xD
Given I could just hook your blade with my sword, step past it and strike you/knock you into the flowerbed, I too get the impression halberds are dicks to fight with :P
The May fabric bender will be awesome, plus next weeks LARP bender shall be epic
I don't yell at you D:
I gently, and sternly, poke you until you do stuff lol
Well, at least you dont have to worry about the weaapons :P
LotR group of undetermined size for Komplex , myself and others in the masq for this Alcon ^_^
Also yay for scavenger meetups. Means we may actually do it this year :awesome:
I do usually lol
Komplex and I always get really excited for the scavenger hunt... then we forget lol. This has happened at least twice
*adds to Witcher hype*
Your silver sword is sat 4 feet behind me and you can have it when youre here at the end of April :P
The moon stated fucking bleeding yesterday. that was...
I mean, why would you trust this thing?...
Between that and the cutscene after the Vacuous Spider, the moon in that game can officially sod off
We can leave The One Reborn until were bricking it less
We have to go back there tonight ;_;
*am working on cospslay as usual*
That shit fom last night... just...oh god why
As far as I remember, its mostly helping the Clan Leader on stage stuff, and filling in for said leader in case they cant do a challenge etc
Could be wrong though
I was clan leader for a week last year before resigning, that was enough lol
Im pretty sure my explanation for this was ''put some dowel in the pipe'' but ok
Basically, with the PVC pipe already cut at the join, find some dowel that sits snugly inside (usually 2mm thinner...
CBA to type it again, so have this
Extruded styrofoam. Whenever you see me building with blue stuff, its that
Now for something that isnt a sword
I have hooks
But they arent on the wall yet xD
Plus, about 60% of the curent hoard is commission work, so those will be dissapearing when their paid for etc
Its slowly looking like an option
Im running out of hoard room xD
Theyll most likely be either pine or whitewood. Either will work
Easiest way will...
You always need to have a tang in the sword regardless, otherwise it will just snap. Foam board isn't heavy in the slightest, so for a sword constructed of that, the dowel will suffice, though I...
HowieHobbit - Well Ive written it now anyway
As someone who doesnt even have the option to drink, I appreciate the thought to non alcoholic
Im still going to chug it through the horn of gondor though
First off, massively appreciate that Howies taken on board a lot of what was said already
Secondly, I retract what I said about prop rules being stickied. For whatever unfathomable reason, they...
I dont have either of those unfortunately. Currently its folded and sat upright, looks sort of like the black knight from monty python
Also for straps, gimme a few mins and Ill find a photo of how...
Feel should I weigh in on this as the former CC head mod for two years, or near enough. This will get long btw, and also possibly a bit all over the place as Im playing Bloodborne right now. Plus...
Everyone needs moar swords
Hey look, more swords
Just had my first boss fight
And the second sword in as many days
You are far too fond of the fact you stood that on its side. I mean kudos, you worked for several minutes at that, but still xD
But yeah, thats progressing really nicely, plus its easier to see...
Update - Silver Sword for Komplex
Ill see if I can find a larger box or something lol
Ahri - Nope, just more weapons xD
Jaz - I tried that, can't work out how in the name of fuck they got it in the box to begin with xD
My Dragonslayer is just fuckjng funny xD
Im still impressed that stuff hand sands, was convinced it wouldnt when I was cutting it
As the owner of the room of weapons, can confirm I am...
Still need to find somewhere to keep the damn stuff. Tried hanging it on a pretty strong wooden hanger, weight of the armour snapped it xD
I get the impression Ive explained a lot...
Your carving ability is weird hun xD
And to be fair, my intense neatness is from 11 years of small scale figure painting. After putting eyeliner on a 28mm figure, cosplay is just huge
Yeah, just a bit
I have pretty unsteady hands too tbf, it just something you learn to compensate for after a while really
Gonna make an actual sensible suggestion for a change (ie not someone from South Africa)
Would love to see Kyoko Cosplay as a guest
Also, gonna second the insanely optimistic suggestion of...
