I was having all kinds of trouble getting my prints to stick on the new mirrors I got for my 3D printer beds. If they did stick at first, they would "unstick" later on, ruining the print.

SUIT UP & REVEAL – BvS armored suit is all done!

6:489 months Agoi
Finally finished the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Batman armor from the movie, and here it is in all it's glory! It was a TON of work, but I'm very proud to be able to say I built this all from scratch. For this cosplay I used EVA foam, my 3D printer, lots of paint, and lots of glue for the armor and belt. Helmet, glove armor, and fins printed on Wanhao Duplicator i3. Also added LED lighted eyes using these LED backlight modules: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00R5CDHNI Cape made from monk weave (leftover from Kylo Ren) and spray paint!

FINALLY got my Iron Man MK46 Costume!!

1:531 year Agoi
Follow me on Instagram: http://instagram.com/superherodiy Sorry for the kind of weird video, but it is what it is! I couldn't really record what I wanted .... so ... I ended up buying an Iron Man MK46 wearable costume from another builder as I just REALLY didn't want to even try to build it myself. I initially started building the Batman vs. Superman DOJ armor as a trial run for Iron Man, but found that I just hated doing it! So, $$$ is the way to go! This one isn't bad, although I had a bit of a shady situation with the seller ... ask about that in the comments if you want. In the end, I did get the suit and it is what I paid for. Unfortunately it did arrive broken but I can fix it!

Upgrading the Real Dark Knight Armory – Part 1

2:202 years Agoi
Time to upgrade the Dark Knight Armory in the Batcave to one that can better handle more gadgets and weapons! I've taken down most of the previous armory, and have purchased some black, metal pegboard. It's going up as soon as I can do it, and next time I'll be working on that, coating some pegs in Plasti-dip, and trying to figure out the best layout. The good part is - if I screw up, it's just pegboard so I can change it!

Some voice-changer modifications to the Kylo Ren Black Series helmet

1:162 years Agoi
I ended up with a different voice changer that's MUCH better! Check out follow-up videos here: Kylo Ren costume version 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxYapEMd56I Final voice changer test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APkxYAYZKCE Reading through different threads on theRPF, it really seems like no one has found a voice changer that actually works the way they want it to. For now the stock one will stay and I'll pad / modify around it. While working on the helmet today, I did find these voice-changer modifications helped: - removing the "voice catching disk" that's just behind the mic - turning the mic around to face me; this requires taking the assembly apart and re-gluing together - adding a small piece of fabric between speaker and helmet to catch reverb - padding the helmet so that the mic isn't so close to my mouth - maybe 2" away (if you can) See more at superherodiy.com

AirPods holder for Watch Band

Ever take out one or two AirPods and don't know where to put it? Want to make sure you're not going to LOSE your AirPods? Just want to hold onto them at the gym? This is an amazingly useful Apple AirPods holder for your Apple Watch (or similar-sized) band. This version has much tighter tolerances around the AirPods as I was very concerned about them falling out if I wasn’t paying attention. With this design, they are not going to fall out unless you’re doing something crazy, clothes are really pushing against them, or somehow your wrist is crushed (unlikely). It’s tight enough to hold them in, but easy enough to get the AirPods out! It is also small enough as to not interfere with your movements and stays in place on your watch band! This item is 3D printed in PLA plastic at high resolution to meet the designed tolerance, available in multiple colors. Message me if you need a color not already available! Ships via USPS.
