Another round of Chun Li and Vega photos direct from MegaCon 2012.
The props were really a new territory for the two of us, I think they turned out ok for our first try, but we decided to try something new for MegaCon. This time we sculpted the mask from Paper Clay instead of Model Magic, we still used the plastic Jason mask as a base. After three days of drying the Paper Clay was light weight and hardened. Originally we tried using plaster cloth but that ended up not working out too well for us. We then attached some D-rings to the side of the mask by "gluing" them on with Sculpey clay and then we baked it in the oven. Instead of attaching the mask with elastic we opted to use velcro which was so so much better. Our goal for the claw was to make it as light weight as possible. The base of the claw was made with thin balsa wood and the actual claws are square wooden dowels. We glued these together and the covered the base with Paper Clay. Once it dried we sanded it smooth and then painted the whole thing. Since it was so light weight all it took was a small strip of velcro to attach it to the black glove.
for taking such lovely photos
