Just a werewolf mask someone bought off of my Etsy. It’s not my favorite of my designs, but it does fit with glasses! While I was in laser-cutting it I also cut a new simple mask design that’s also made to fit with glasses like this one. I need to get some photos of it tomorrow.
One thing that I always notice when doing these is that when the space between the eyeholes is removed, it ends up making the whole mask trickier to form to shape. This one ended up needing to be re-moistened and adjusted because it dried a bit too splayed outwards.I also realized that I’m sometimes inconsistent about how I form the ears. Oh well.
Been cranking out these tassels for a dragon tail commission. But man they go slow. I’m averaging like 1.5 per episode of anime. 11 down, 4 more to go, and then I can finally start building this tail. I’m happy with the binding I worked out for these, but if I end up offering these as a standard option I’m really going to need to invest in crimping equipment.
Oh and once my paycheck and rent checks clear I’m making a custom order for large anodized titanium scales, so I’m excited about that. But that also means I need to dig out like 5 conversations that I kinda dropped out on where people had asked about titanium for tails, so that’s a pile of mental energy I’m going to have to dredge up in the next couple days.
And I also need to head in to laser cut in the next few days. I need to cut a single mask. So really that means I need to figure out what other stuff I can productively cut so it’s not quite such a wasted trip.Crafting can be tiresome sometimes. It sometimes feels like I do nothing but fall behind and try to catch up. And man I’m tired of having cash-flow problems.
