This is my gallery,
It holds some of the things I made over the years, though most of what I make never gets in here. Usually because it trades hands before I get a chance to take a decent picture.

This is mainly a message to my local friends and watchers.
Castlefest, the biggest fantasy-event in the country, is coming again this summer.
As per usual, I'll be attending the full weekend and spending the nights in a scouting-house some 10 minutes away.
We rent that place with a group of friends, but this year a couple of them have dropped out because they can't afford it this year. And so we've got vacancies that we're hoping to fill.
So if you're interested in spending the whole castlefest weekend close-by, with a solid roof over your head and a band of merry men and women to keep the party going after the fair closes, shoot me a message with any questions you might have.
Believe me it beats that campsite they have ;P

Tower of chainmaille by unreal-hunter
Tower of chainmaille
5 years ago I posted a shot of a short stack of chainmaille patches.
5 years I have been making more, sometimes not touching them for months.
Yesterday, I broke the 100 bits landmark.

so I wanted to take a shot of that to celebrate.

now I will turn these into a pair of sleeves. and then make more.

surface per square: 4,5 x 4,5 cm
1,3mm stainless steel in 5 mm rings
Euro 4-1
Weight, 21 grams per patch.

looking at well over 2 Kg here.

^^ Chainmaille

Hello Daemonium ^^
costumery is going slow as usual. little time, little energy and WAY TOO many Ideas to give them all the attention they deserve.
probably something you recognise, and if not, you will :P

but yes, I am in fact going to the EFF haarzuilens this year. I will be there sunday sporting a lovely red pacman ghost costume (doing a group thing for fun). Last year a friend did a pacman with 1 ghost. now we've got 3 ghosts filled and one on Maybe

So how's things on your end?

aha I do recognise it indeed, I especially have this with artwork :faint:

cool! and that sounds like a cool costume, I always liked the idea of a group theme^^ would love to see the final costume :)

its going pretty well atm, also with costumery. I'm coming close to finishing that ribcage I once mentioned to expand on my demon costume, and it started to come out rather nice :)

costumes ARE artwork ;)

yeah, it's more for laughs than being awesome, we're not doing super realistic or high grade ghost outfits (keeping it simple means we'll have it all in the same style, with more people working on it.)
and don't worry, I'll be sure to show you some of it.

hmm, I do seem to recall us talking about a ribcage. you should definately show some of it here. I'll be very interested in in ;p
are you aiming to finish it for the EFF, or do you have other plans?

You're welcome.
Then I am certainly on time, and happy I am XD.
life's quiet, not much going on. School, working, more school, some video games, more working, some hanging out with friends and did I mention work?

and your life?

same, but without the school (cause I'm done) and less hanging with friends.

but I substitute that with crazy experimentation :evillaugh:
