A little side project [wip] while I wait for paint to dry... Mary Mallon's Cleaver. Needs varnish, weathering and more varnish yet. Legend has it that anyone stuck by this tainted blade will be afflicted by terrible, fatal disease. Coming soon to my #etsyshop - link in bio #cosplay #weapon #cleaver #fantasy #typhoidmary #historical #folklore #peculiartifacts
This harder to play than I imagined... #flute #practice #sorrynextdoor

A quick switchfrom weapons to headbands to make this #christmastree headband for my daughter's #christmasjumper day #peculiartifacts #christmas #fairylights
Too many prototypes hanging about... need to make room for new ones. Visit the #peculiartifacts shop on #etsy to snag yourself a #bargin . There is one each of the following; #swordofomens #imperialguard #lasgun and the magma #sword - at least 20% #discount compared to the list price.
Yet another #warhammer40k #chainsword rolls off the production line... destined for exotic #rotherham . Right... what next? #cosplay #larp #warhammer #40k #spacemarines #peculiartifacts #weapon
Normally I wouldn't put much stock in symbology... but this stencil has been an utter nightmare to cut out. #warhammer40k #chaos #airbrush #stencil #larp #cosplay #foamsmithing #peculiartifacts
Good Samhaine from Peculiartifacts (and Mr Bitey, the Stinky Pumpkin)
The #plaguedoctor #mask has undergone a significant transformation today. Really loving this drastic change... the green mould even glows under blacklight. Think variations of these will be available from my #etsyshop before long. #cosplay #larp #halloweencostume #steampunk
Hallowe'en mask for my daughter... not originally for her but she's laid claim to it. Also, it strikes me that I learned my craft from Bill and Ted. Excellent! *air guitar* @chinbeard @evilted_channel #plaguedoctor #halloweencostume #etsy #mask #steampunk #horror #foamsmith #cosplay #larp
I was wondering how to make the blade on this #worldofwarcraft Fangs of the Devourer glow. Turns out it already does under #blacklight - must be some kind of voodoo is how I glazed the blade. #happyaccident #foamsmith #wow #rogue #peculiartifacts #cosplay #larp
Again, for no particular reason, more of the Black Annis legend. This time the blasted oak tree where she would hang the skins of her victims to dry. The Drying Oak [digital oils] #folklore #blackannis #monster #painting
I present, for no particular reason, Black Annis' Bower [digital oils] #folklore #uk #monster
Now vs. Then - My latest build and my very first build. There's about a year between them both and at some point I want to revisit the lower design and redo it. #nowvsthen #cosplay #larp #foamsmithing #foamsmith #dagger #weapon #peculiartifacts
And we're done* - I finished this Fangs of the Devourer from #worldofwarcraft . I had no idea how to simulate the glowing #blade . Reckon I did all right in the end. One (or a pair) of these would make a fine #xmas #gift for any #wow #rogue . #cosplay #larp #foamsmith #weapon #dagger #peculiartifacts [* apart from building another with LEDs under the skull]
My Fang of the Devourer is coming along nicely... spent all morning tinkering with the blade... still a ways to go yet. #wow #worldofwarcraft #rogue #weapon #dagger #shortsword #cosplay #larp #peculiartifacts
I reckon that'll do. I'll clean up this #worldofwarcraft #rogue #weapon tomorrow, ready for painting. #wow #larp #cosplay #dagger #peculiartifacts
Getting there... detailling and clean up on this #worldofwarcraft Fang of the Devourer. I've wanted to build this since I started foamsmithing a year ago, finally I reckon I'm just about good enough to do it justice. These will probably be available in my #etsy shop from October. #weapon #wow #rogue #rouge #cosplay #larp #foamsmithing #peculiartifacts
Well I reckon I've made some decent progress today on this #worldofwarcraft Fang of the Devourer... especially as I didn't really have a clue how it would all go together. Question is... is it a #dagger or a #shortsword #wow #cosplay #rogue #larp #foamsmithing #peculiartifacts
