I pulled the first two masks from our Alien mold and we are putting them up for sale at a discount. Often the first couple of pulls have slight flaws and they end up in the corner gathering dust. Well we decided that we should sell them to you guys in case you wanted to fix them!
These are very small flaws, often the edges are not paper thin or there are small pockmarks. All of these blemishes can be fixed with a little Skin Tite Adhesive!
(Fixing edges is just like masking these scars)
We have Two Masks that can be found here:
Well we are in full swing getting ready for our upcoming shows!
Anton and Adam are working getting orders packed out to Amazon and customer orders while the rest of us are planning our Dragoncon and Gen Con booth set ups! We are expanding at all our shows this year, so maybe we will actually fill the Tank up more than half way for once.
Gencon we will have a 10×20′ spot with all the costuming you could ever wish for, and Paul and I will be returning to the art show.
Is there anything anyone needs at Gencon? If you want to put in a request, send an email to us!
Today I got in our demo bottle of Pros-Aide. We had tried other medical or pro adhesives and had no luck with them. But before we started to sell the Hero Mask I wanted to see if the original super adhesive would work. And it does! I wore the mask around the office for a couple of hours.
It loosened up a bit around the edges towards the end, but it was not in danger of falling off at all. I will report back after wearing it to a convention, but we wanted to get it up for sale for everyone before Dragoncon! You can buy the mask here:
I also got my chest piece in the mail for my upcoming Nightwing costume. I think it is pretty bad ass, though Paul is giving me a hard time about the nipples. I am going to paint it with Krylon spray paint since that has been the most flexible paint we have used to date.
In other super costume news Sara has decided to post apoc Batgirl, and keeping in the DC universe, I am going to do post apoc Lobo!
And I also finished with the mask for my Irathient costume. Well finished sculpting. I left this file big so you can see all the skin wrinkles and pores I added.
And tomorrow I start molding it!
In other news, the first shipments of Dwarf ears are out! So keep your eyes on your mailboxes!
Paul came back from vacation so stuff at Aradani is back in full swing. This week we hope to get our cart system upgraded, so there will be a new look to the site in a few days!
Sara is working on her Four Sword Link costume for Gencon and today she was working on the belt buckle. I think it looks pretty sweet, and it will be for sale as soon as we get a mold made!
I got the Dwarf ears in full swing in the ear production room, and they should start shipping as early as tomorrow! I added some new photos to or Dwarf Ear page, which is really a lot of fun since Adam likes being dwarven so much!
I also spent some time with my Irathient mask from Defiance. I smoothed things down a bit and now I just need some canned air so I can sand it completely smooth.
I have also decided to do a nightwing costume. Which means lots of working out. Spandex. Hmm.
I have finished two plaster molds and they are in the drying rack. We ran one pair of ears to see how they look and well, judge for yourself!
We have also put up a page for our upcoming dwarf costumes which can be found following the link below (but there isn’t much there yet):
