NZ$177.00Donated So Far
After finishing my build of Dr. Doppler from Treasure Planet, I've picked up some new skills and an insatiable need to learn more. I'd like to build a Silver cosplay next, as screen-accurate as possible.
Yes, this means extra long arms and short legs. A mechanical arm! I'll be primarily working with latex, EVA foam, fabric. Also needed will be some materials for building a lightweight frame to fake his body shape.
The minimum cost of this build would be $500, hence the need for crowd-funding. The quality can go up if I can get more than that, but I am good at doing budget work. I have to be!

Hey all, I felt like an owed an update, since it has been a while! I was able to use the donations so far to make a plaster bust on which I can start sculpting the mask.Due to a very stressful, full-on semester at vet school, I haven't started sculpting. . . . .
Ready for first step!Update posted by Kathryn Kortegast at 12:36 am
Materials purchased for the first step of mask sculpting! I'm waiting for a sunny day to get started with making a plaster cast of my head and torso.Once this has dried out, I'll sand it and coat it with wood glue. It should be ready to start sculpting on within
