Foam, Leather, and Acrylics
This look was designed for a Fallout-inspired immersion event.
The helmet borrows from the robot designs of FLCL as well as the look of terminals in the Fallout series by Bethesda.
Leathwork, Textiles, and Plastics
As a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, I have worked on my own to develop semi-historical costume pieces in leather and linen using original or adapted patterns
I also use modern materials to build lightweight yet functional neck and forearm protectors.
Engineering and Papercraft
In the Summer of 2014, I designed a puppet as part of a project overseen by Dr. Michael Nitsche.
The design of the puppet and the accompanying instructions had to be simple enough for elementary-schoolers and they should demonstrate principles of basic electronic engineering.
After a period of drafting, we settled on an origami dragon with light-up eyes powered by two dime batteries. Folding down the wings completes a series circuit to power the eyes and prompt interaction with the puppet.
Sewing, Patterning, and Basic Woodworking
After watching Adam Savage's One Day Build for a hand-and-rod puppet, I was inspired to build a doll based on existing character designs.
Bendy the Doll is hand and machine sewn from black neoprene and padded with foam. The frame is wood, wire, and chain. Details such as the face, hands, and bowtie were painted onto white voile. He is based on the survival horror antagonist of Bendy and the Ink Machine.
