Well, people pay good money for "sous vide" cooking in fancy restaurant. You may have inadvertently developed the home version of it.  Grin

If not a botch, it will be a fake ECT machine for a larp we are running next spring. This was my first test to see if everything fit in the housing. I still need to solder the connections and create the helmet portion ... in which a few pager motors will be embedded so the players feel something when their PC is "shocked". You see them to the left at the end of this video:

The prop works so far but the wiring has gotten a bit out of control I think. I never realized that hooking up 11 switches, 9 LEDS, 5 motors and a buzzer and some batteries would turn into such a rat's nest if you want certain things to only work when certain other things are happening.

I am actually dreading soldering the last connections ... some of which involve something like 12 wires together. I sense disaster looming.

I am in love with the angler fish hat. Do the little balls light up or glow in the dark?

Thank you Smiley

Although I didn't have the rusty metal primer that they recommend, I used this website tutorial on painting faux rust. It was very helpful.

We are working on yet another one shot larp which takes place in a modern institution where lots of weevil things happen. Anyhow, in order to scare the bejesus out of the patients during their morning walk, we want to create a mini graveyard where the deceased are only identified by their number (in the same way that the patients players will). We're looking at having 15+ markers, hence the need for something simple.

So I whipped this prototype. The top is birch plywood and the bottom is pink insulation foam and some screws and nuts i had laying around. Everything is covered in drylock for texture and to be weather proof and on the day of, I'll probably treat it with hydrofuge spray.

I made the top part float over the bottom part so we can run hidden fishing lines to anchor them to the ground. It would be a shame if the wind took away our graveyard.

These are awesome. I'm reminded of the show "Art Attack". I love them all, but the lion is my favourite.
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Skin Prop on: July 07, 2014 07:15:05 PM
A quick prop made for a werewolf larp. It's supposed to be a piece of animal skin, freshly removed, by someone who doesn't really know what they are doing. The reverse is a brown suede-like fabric. Made with tinted latex on fabric.
