Airbag and War Club

By on September 2, 2016

Airbag top section is basically done, although we did mess with (read: significantly removed) the levels of stuffing a bit to deflate it some after these photos.

The bottom section of the bag should hopefully be much simpler, since it doesn’t have as many complex curves.

The Key to Valhalla

While everything else is going on with my Immortan Joe project, and because I am ADD as all hell, I decided to prototype something else to go with this whole outfit…

Welded metal, printed plastic

By on August 23, 2016

I should say that while I have a poor-quality Harbor Freight MIG welder, I also have hardly any idea how to weld or use that machine properly. However, that did not stop me from making an ugly yet functional welded frame for the airbag!

This weird Y-shape is hopefully going…

Packing iron and hanging curtains

By on August 22, 2016

The belt is… mostly done? I’m sure I’m missing some stuff, but lets get caught up!

We cut some neoprene and leather that we salvaged from a sofa that was being thrown out into the top bits on the holster belt with the curves. A bit of contact cement is…

Castle Nut Codpiece

By on August 21, 2016

Codpiece section is pretty much done. The seams got sewn up, and it was wet-shaped over a bowl to give it a bit more of a curve.

I busted out my contact cement and started the process of dipping each castle nut into the jar, then sticking it onto the…
