knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit

wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad 

That was deep

philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is a smoothie

That was deeper.

common sense is knowing that ketchup isn’t a damn smoothie you nasty

thats called naive realism

i think instead of the woman taking her husband’s name when they get married or doing the hyphenated thing

couples should just smash their last names together

so like if a Smith married a Grabowski you could be Smabowski or Grabith or Grasmithski

and then as the generations go on the names just get more and more ridiculous

why aren’t we doing this

Another tutorial! This one’s on making class patches specifically, but really freezer paper printing works great for all kinds of fabric printing.(This also works great for just printing the patches directly on the shoulders of a t-shirt)

As usual, if you have any questions just let me know!

steamlovers:

Hi again, Gear Heads! I had so much fun with my first steampunk-gun that I wanted to make a second one. Here’s the supplies you’ll need:

-Nerf gun/any squirt gun or dart gun
-silver paint
-copper paint
-bronze paint
-black paint
-primer spray paint
-(optional) black spray paint (no gloss)
-a paintbrush
-a spongy brush thingy
-a cup of water
-lots of newspaper or paper towels
-coffee
-gears or other accessories (optional)
-Rub n Buff (silver)

So anyways,

Here’s how it went:

1) If you don’t have a super thin screwdriver, go to your local CVS and pick up an eyeglass repair kit for $2.00. Now, unscrew all the screws. DO NOT LOSE ANY OF THE PIECES. It really helps to separate (and label) screws & internal pieces!

2) Once you’ve had everything disassembled, take the pieces that will be visible and go put a primer layer on them. Wait 45 minutes before proceeding (about 35 minutes if it’s warm outside).

3) You can totally skip this part if you want. Spray all the pieces with your black spray paint. Go back outside in 15 minutes and respray any pieces where you might have missed a spot. Then wait another 45 minutes.

Bring all your pieces inside and set them up where you can see them. Get an idea of what you want your gun to look like. Remember, it’s all about creativity. Go crazy!

4) in image #4, I’m showing that little piece you slide back to cock the gun. I put on like two or three layers of silver, and added texture and made it look super worn out by mixing silver with black, splotching it around a few random places, and blending the edges of the splotches with my finger.

5) the beginning of the barrel. I painted the barrel tubes silver, then painted between them with the silver-black mix to make it look dirty and to make the tubes visually pop out.

6-10) the gun, reassembled. There are great and descriptive videos on YouTube to help you if you can’t remember where all the pieces are supposed to go inside your gun. Here comes the fun part. If you have silver Rub n Buff (which I highly recommend), take the tiniest amount you’ve ever seen ever and rub it across certain spots, then use another finger to blend it so that it’s not just BRIGHT SILVER HERE I AM, and instead it’s “oh wow that gun looks like it’s been in a hundred battles at least!” Take a tiny bit of RnB across the flat of your finger, and carefully brush your finger across the words “Maverick Rev-6” so that it stands out and just looks so cool.

Pro tip: I read in another tutorial that if you want the gun to look realistically battle-worn, think about it as if you were in the steampunk world, carrying your gun around, throwing it in a trunk with other stuff, dropping it on the ground, getting blast marks on the metal of hour gun from bullets whizzing past during an awesome gun fight! Think about where it would be hardest to clean your gun, you know, those hard-to-reach cracks and crannies. Like when you just wipe it off quickly with a rag but didn’t clean everything. Think about it like that, and your gun will be looking like it’s straight out of science fiction!

Good luck, and please send me pictures of the steampunk guns & other accessories that you create!

Edit: I just wanted to let y’all know how much it cost to do this, and tell you the best way to do this project within your budget.

I spent:

•$10 on acrylics (x3)

•$14 on spray paint (x2)

•$14 on Rub n Buff (x2)

•$1 on one spongy brushy thingy

•$4 on large gears (set of 5)

•$12 on a Nerf gun

If I’m not too tired to count, I think I’m at $55, right? Basically, if you or a friend or parent has some of this stuff, use it! Don’t buy it! And you don’t need super top-quality paint. Look for sales, like Aaron Brothers’ Buy One Get One for One Cent sale.

Posted a tutorial on how I made Kreig for my Parasoul cosplay on deviantART. Do head over there for the larger version! I hope this helps all of you who’ve asked me about it :)
[edit] I realized I typed : The “eyes” are made of spray paint. They’re made of clay, painted with spray paint. Sorry for the typo!

I finished the base of my belt this afternoon. One step closer to being an Assassin! It’s probably not as tall as I’d like it.. When I measured it out I thought it was waaaaaay tall. But in actual fact.. it’s not really! Oh well. I’m hoping when I figure out however I’m going to do the emblem it’ll look alright. If it doesn’t, I’m thinking I might wrap some red satin underneath it. Just for a little more bulk. But that’s worse case.

It’s fastened with velcro round the back where as the pattern called for a corset. As much as I think the corset would be really, really cool, I didn’t want too much hanging off me. I already have the two loose “ribbons” hanging off and I didn’t want to look like I was playing tag rugby!

I’m not really sure what the plan for making the emblem is. Cardboard and tin foil? Worbla? Clay? Going to do a lot of Googling and come up with an action plan. I think Worbla would be AWESOME to use (it feels like a cosplay initiation) and it’d work for both the belt and arm guard. But it’s expensive!! And I’ve never used it before. So we’ll see.

Now I need to measure out how much fabric my tunic calls for. I’ve decided I’m going to use a nice white shiny satin which is only a few pounds per metre. I’m hoping it won’t be too garish, but I think it’ll look all nice and feminine. Plus my local fabric store doesn’t have a huge selection and I daren’t risk buying any over the internet!
