How to give your Gems some Glow
Published on Sep 12, 2011

I just uploaded a new video tutorial on my channel, guys. After a little survey on facebook, I noticed that many of you want to see, how I create my glowing gems. Especially you also wanted to see, how my husband paints my stuff, but this will follow soon don’t worry.

I avoided to talk about insulation, dead shorts or circuit calculation, but I hope it’s still okay. However you maybe still need to read my other tutorials to follow my steps better and I just wanted to show you, how easy all this circuit stuff really is. So, I hope you like it! :)

And now I’m preparing my next workshops about armor and prop making on Connichi, start with the costume of my husband and then… we’ll see us at Blizzcon! I’m already looking forward to many of you guys there! :)
(And finally get a Diablo III Beta key! Still need one!)

We built a light-up bow from Empires & Puzzles!

I always love to work with mobile game developers as many of their games often have amazingly designed heroes. I also always wanted to build a functional bow! So when Empires&Puzzles reached out to us to create something from their game, I took the chance and decided to make Athena’s bow! It not only has a really cool design, it also has LEDs – the perfect match to test my skills!

Warner Brothers Games Montreal and Gotham Knights asked us to create the golden Mask for the Voice of the Court. But since creating a prop is only half the fun we though, why not make the full costume and get Benni a nice cosplay photoshoot as well? And that’s what we did!

  1. Just because you have a few extra pounds doesn’t mean you should miss out on cosplaying. Pick a costume or character you love and have fun with it.

    • peak-the fact that you cannot ever respond substantively in these discussions proves a great deal.accusing others of making things up when you cannot even answer simple questions is a pure rhetorical dodge.He has been busted so many times for just plain wrong or partial or spun data that he dare not go anywhere but the lands of logical fallacies and cognitive dissonance.
