    SCA, renfaires, belly dancing, alternative lifestyles. It's just a long list might be easier to say what I'm not into lol.
  1. Is there an ETA for XL black scales?
  2. The frame is made from MDF wood cut with a laser cutter at the Tampa HackerSpace. I used paracord to attach the scales onto the frame, both around the edges and at the first ring.

  3. Here is the front of a custom Captain America shield I made for a local cosplayer. It measures about 18 inches across with a wood frame allow it to be permitted into the local conventions as a prop. The wood asks as a safety net making it less dangerous and less likely to be used as a weapon.

  4. Somewhere between 3-400 I want to say. Trust me have a large stabling ring at the top and have it tight against your back. It helps with the weight.
  5. I work/attend renfaires, anime conventions, and maker faires. Yep I'm a nerd and I'm good with that. Let me be the odd ball, it means I have things I enjoy. Those who try to use the word "nerd" as an insult tend to have very little excitement in their life. "What did you do this weekend?" gets answered with, "I went shopping" but there's no adventure. Call me a nerd and I smile as I bust out singing this:
  6. I made myself a dragon tail! Large scales and links all from TRL.
  7. Recent personal project. Been working on a new belly dance outfit for me to wear.
  8. I spoke to my local rapier marshal. The only way this idea would pass is if it was covered with leather or some other material like that. sorry man.
  9. I would talk to your local rapier marshal. I do heavy weapons so I am most likely wrong in what I"m about to say. Yes the scales would pass the direct puncture test but as Deamora said it could slide under the scales if deflected. So you might be able to get it passed but I wouldn't suggest it. Though for an accurate answer I would make a patch of "fabric" and go speak to your marshals.
  10. Must learn how to make the pattern! :: total fangirling::
  11. omg this is awsome! Is it wrapped around something?
  12. Did you position the D20 so should it hit it should crit every time? because if so that would rock!
  13. Oh that's a cool way!
  14. It would need to be thicker straps. I would do 6-1 straps to help spread out the weight, and a racer strap back so there's none on her neck. while halters are sexy they hurt. A coif style cup would work nicely for supporting her. Then add flair and flavor anyway you want.
  15. I have two main set ups pending on the event. If I"m at Fetish Circuit I have one long table with spinning displays for bracelets. Plus a static hook display for bags, some bracelets, and earrings. then on another table I have the more hardcore items such as my bra top, scalemaile, etc. Also at that table I have a violet wand. I'll do demos with the wand (the sound is great for drawing people in.) and that's how I show off items such as my flogger. I also use this table as my work area if I need to work on something. For events such as MetroCon I have to keep everything pg13 and under in rating. So my hardcore table isn't even there. I have the displays around me/infront of me on a long table; and in the center a work area for on the spot custom jobs. Most of the stuff I bring here is under $35 so there's a lot I wont bring. I'll have some stuff there just to show off I can do complicated work. My main "got ya" to bring people in here is my replica Portal Gun from Think Geek. For both set ups I have a sign with my business name, a QR code to my facebook, and hobo codes. The hobo codes are symbols of different groups/lifestyles that I am a member or supporter of. Such as SCA, Furry, and GBLT. If you don't know the symbol you wont understand what it's for. So I have no fear about having it anywhere I go. It also means that when I ask questions like, 'what will this be used for?" I'll tend to get a more honest answer.
