Ooh Craftster! Been a really long time since I was here. I missed you, there is so much awesome stuff to look at here! So I've decided to be back! xD

I've been really busy studying prop making at university in the northern parts of Sweden and this June I graduated.
So I kinda wanted to show the project I've been working on and putting a lot of time and effort into recently.

We were given the task to plan and execute a project, using our skills in prop making. And I decided to make a steampunk adventurer character with clothing and props.

I have written more about the character and why I wanted to do it etc (also lots of progress shots) in my journal/blog (hope it's okay to post this link?): http://www.nymla.se/?page_id=11

Anyway, below is the result of my work. Photographer was my set designer friend Evelina Wallin, and I was in front of the camera (scary Tongue).

(Owww, I don't get why the pictures end up so small? Before I upload them they are bigger but when I add them to my picture hosting, they shrink somehow! Help? :/)

























Thank you so much for looking!
Caroline

Ohh....my....god........ this is so AWESOME!!

My husband is in love with your detail over here (he's close to drooling I would say...) I cant imagine the amount of time it took to make all that (me personally I know stuff would have been thrown xD) just WOW!! It looks like it jumped right out of one of my anime's and cant possibly be real, you totally win in my book =D

Thank you all for your kind words! Really appreciate it!
Yes, it took quite some time to make this and several setbacks Smiley But I got it done! \o/

If anyone knows how to solve my problem with the pictures being so small, I'd love some help :O Or maybe I should contact the staff.. Tongue
