I make stuff and sometimes even do stuff!
Last of the minor things are done on the #darthmaul #lightsaber. I had to fill in the back of the rings with #worbla and #epoxy. Not super pretty but I planned it so the way it will be positioned on my belt you won’t see it. But when its all painted it will be a different story. But I known its there!

#theblackseries #darthmaul. I like the cloaked optioned head. I like how insanely articulated he is. My first #blackseries #actionfigure, I finally picked one up and now I want more lol. #starwars #sith #sithlord #darkside #toy #toys #action #figure #actionfigures #figures #lightsaber #maul #cloaked #iopenmytoys #02

More #lightsaber work. Reading the #kazdanparatus #saber to make it more accurate to the game rather than going off what other have done.  I made the piece on the left out of the piece on the right. I cut it down and put it on my #DIY lathe and put as much of a taper as I could on it. I’m happy with the result. My plan is to finish up these sabers before moving onto the next part of the #sithstalker #costume. As long as its all ready to paint I can start the next phase. #starwars #theforceunleashed #forceunleashed #sith #sithlord #darkside #jedi #kazdan #paratus #empire #PVC #pvcpipe #lightsabers #props #D3props #cosplay #weapons #starkiller #sabers

I have been working on my #lightsabers for my #sithstalker #costume. These three are almost ready to paint after a few small tweaks. All made from #pvcpipe #worbla #sintra a cut up and toy #saber and a few bits of hardware. #darthmaul #rahmkota #kota #starkiller #lightsaber #saber #trophy #trophies #sith #sithlord #darkside #empire #cosplay #props #D3props #starwars #theforceunleashed #forceunleashed

Thank you to all those who have offered condolences and help. 

What has been helping me these past few months has been Yoda actually and a few excerpts from ESB and RotS.

"My ally is the force and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we not this crude matter. You must feel the force all around you." 
“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not.”

It is difficult but it has helped.

When my mom started her chemo treatments last year I gave her this Yoda to keep her company and to help her stay strong. She loved it and she said he was perfect to hold onto for the bumpy ride there. 
         Yoda has now returned home with me. Last night my mom passed away ending her battle with cancer. 
        It is because of her that I like star wars and many other SciFi and fantasy things. She always encouraged my creativity and my artistry. For this I am thankful everyday and every time I make something. 
         I am thankful for the time I spent with her and for the time my son got to spend with her as well and I will do my best to keep those memories alive for my son so he never forgets his grandma and how much she loved him.

Aaand an #exia #update! This has been one of the more challenging #builds I have done but I love how it is coming along. I’m about to add some #fiberglassresin to the inside of all the smaller parts and when the main #helmet is done they will all be reattached and the goal is to not lose any of those sharp #gundam lines! For those of you who don’t know this helmet started as a head for a #pepakura figure and I had to blow it up an insane amount. More to come on exia soon! #pepakuramadness!  #fiberglass

Been ball kinds of busy the past few days. Here is a shot of some of my #sithstalker stuff together. The #helmet needs a few more tiny spots of #bondo and I need to smooth out the visor area a wee bit more. Other than that its ready to go! The #armor needs some #sanding and its ready as well. I have all the pieces and parts to build all of the #lightsabers and those will be built in the next few days. I still have to #build the ribs but I’m going to get everything else finished and at least primed before I start them just so I have less pieces floating around and can focus more on them. Just a little update. #starwars #theforceunleashed #forceunleashed #starkiller #sith #sithlord #darkside #empire #worbla #pepakura #casting #lightsaber #saber #sabers #darthmaul #darthvader #pvcpipe #hardware #cosplay #costume #bucket

In the middle of making my #pauldron / #neckguard my #heatgun decided it wanted to go crazy and start smoking A LOT! this is the second heat gun of this kind that died fairly fast on me. Dont buy heat guns from harbor freight…. but now i need a new one to finish up the #worbla ! #starwars #armor #theforceunleashed #forceunleashed #sithstalker #starkiller #sith #sithlord #darkside #empire #cosplay #costume #D3props
