I wanted a place where I could put all the creative things my boyfriend, Ryan, and I, Ash, (thus "rash"), make. so this tumblr was created. eventually we want to make clothing but this tumblr will be more than that. it will be customs as well with a bit of things we like thrown in. that is about it.

… Myriad, on the other hand, is feeling slightly less special upon the arrival of our new ghoul.

We recently picked up one of the new Monster High Inner Monster packs, and we rather like her indeed.

Not a whole lot of 3dmg progress as of lately, but I do have this to show for myself: I’m attempting to streamline the process! The four additional launcher pods I have to make for the two remaining motor units prompted me to want to find a better way to replicate some of the more involved pieces without having to cut out all the pieces from wood again. So, I did the next logical step; made masters of the pieces I needed, created silicone molds, and cast them in resin. Granted, a few pieces still need to be cut from wood for final assembly, but having all the tricky pieces already set to go ahead of time? It’s a lot less trouble!
Also, I attempted to make a handle out of urethane plastic sheet… it works great for cutting out (no splintering), but cleaning up the edges is proving way too difficult… so I’ll be making a wooden master and casting those in resin as well (hence the shot of the bigger mold box that I made for that purpose)

Ryan helped me run a color test on some fabric I was thinking of using for the Riddler cosplay. :)

I wasn’t planning on posting this until I finished it, but it’s been a while since we posted any kind of Monster High type custom work.I adore ball pythons so I am attempting to make her hair look more like them. It still needs some work, a bit of filling in and some detail work.

It occurred to me that I haven’t posted the slight progress we’ve made on our Gangs of Gotham group.Which if you don’t know what that is, it is basically us gender-bending Batman characters and attempting to give them a Gangs of New York kind of feel. It wasn’t the original plan but it just kind of happened and we are going with it.
Anyways, this was my (Ash) contribution as of late. A female Riddler. I haven’t decided on a name yet. I designed this to be worn by my little sister. I really liked the idea of Riddler being a kind of newsie (I realize the timeline is a bit off but eh). I had this image in my head of her putting clues in the paper and running around Gotham in a parkour type manner. I also like the idea of her sitting on a throne of old papers. xDHer weapon of choice being her sling-shot staff.I think that is about it.
Ryan has the design done for Ivy as well but I’ll let him put that up here sometime.For a better idea of the concept we were going for, it will be to compliment the Joker and Harley we’ve already done here.

Attempting to get myself motivated again and shorten some zippers :)

My Oswin progress as of now. If I ever get a chance to remake the dress I think I will but for now it will have to do.Also the wig still needs a bit of work.

So we hit a snag in being productive when we ended up going to a fair amount of conventions in (for us anyway) a short amount of time. We are, however, getting back into the groove of things, slowly. We should be able to, hopefully, post some updates next week. Until then I have a somewhat old picture of my Oswin cosplay attempts to post. :)
