As part of an ongoing quest for the perfect ergonomic computer setup, I'm testing a slim profile vertical mouse gripped using only your finger tips. The design is unique and comfortable, but what are the drawbacks, and is there a better option?

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.

Using scraps of surfboard and craft foam, I made a miniature shield mock-up to test the concept of laminating the High Elven Shield with fiberglass to reinforce and set the shape. I'll be testing EZ-Lam 60 min. epoxy by ACP Composites to see how it performs and testing a painted gold "metal" finish technique.

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 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.

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.

Wearing individual parts of the Nazgul 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.

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.

This channel documents the planning, experimentation and iteration process behind finished props and costumes. My goal is to create the best possible solution based on the resources, skills and time available right now. If that's a mindset you value, then this content is for you. I also practice new skills to make future projects better and share what I learn along the way, so hopefully you will find some useful information and inspiration.
