The High Elven Shield recycled surfboard makeover continues with layers of reinforcing fabric and resin to make it rigid and strong. To preserve the detail and shape, the entire shield and surfboard are left to cure in a vacuum bag after each layer. There's a problem though... looks like I'll be doing more sanding than expected.

Hours spent at the computer 3D modeling can be a literal pain. I'm testing out a variety of mice to see if any of them can alleviate that discomfort. I'll try two handheld trackball mice, a vertical mouse and, most novel of all, the SpaceMouse! These are products I purchased, not provided free or sponsored. I have included Amazon affiliate links below if you are interested trying any of these yourself.

I saved a damaged surfboard from becoming landfill. Now I need to turn it into something cool to justify the space it consumes. It's just the right size for a Lord of the Rings High Elven Shield replica, so I'll be cutting the shape, making a template for the ornate details and attaching the pieces together in preparation for a layer of fiberglass.

Riveting together the Doom Wielder Gauntlet template parts, including the steel pieces crafted by David Guyton and the carbon fiber version. Experimenting with using a 3d printed mold, twill weave and spread tow carbon fiber cloth and curing in a vacuum bag to create forearm armor. A big thank you to David at Armor Templates for providing the stunning steel gauntlet that inspired this whole project!

Wearing individual parts of the Lord of the Rings Nazgul inspired costume works to show them in motion separately, but summer is too hot to wear the whole costume outside. Instead I tried creating a wooden armature to stage the elements for photos and video and then combined footage from the handheld camera and the drone to create a dramatic sequence featuring the Ringwraith.

#LordOfTheRingsProps

Designing and constructing a Lord of the Rings Nazgul inspired cloak that that will turn a 6 ft. tall human into an 8 ft. tall Ringwraith. Custom padding and straps secure the empty hood in place above the wearer's concealed head. Stay tuned at the end for a look at the complete Nazgul costume in a setting reminiscent of the Dead Marshes.

In collaboration with the David Guyton channel, this video continues the process of layering resin over carbon fiber parts while racing against the rain. Progress begins on a vambrace design to complement the gauntlets. Many thanks to David Guyton for making this project possible!

With the goal of finding useful prop making materials, today I'm testing out 3D printing filaments provided by MatterHackers as the August Hacker of the Month. I'll print a bunch of ants in Pro Series Ryno / PETG / Metallic Bronze PLA and compare those to my favorite filaments, Matte Fiber HTPLA and Cheetah TPU. I'll also try polishing a Metallic Bronze axe.
