Toy Gun Repaint in 60 Seconds

I needed a gift for a White Elephant party so I got a cheap toy gun from Five Below and repainted it. Here's a 60 second recap on how I did it.

Stay Puft Marshmallow Cupcakes


A couple of years ago I made Ghostbusters cupcakes using this recipe from Rosanna Pansino of Nerdy Nummies. I wanted to make them again this year for a Friendsgiving gathering when I came across this video for Stay Puft cupcakes and decided to make those instead. I took some liberties and put my own spin on things. Here's how I did it.

Among the ingredients I used:
White Cake Mix
Vegetable Oil
Eggs
Large and Mini Marshmallows
Marshmallow Creme
Vanilla Frosting
Blue Fondant
Red, White, & Blue Cookie Icing
Black Food Coloring Marker
Toothpicks

3D Printed Justice League Batarang


I apparently really like batarangs. But who doesn't?!? I made one out of foam last year and I 3D printed one about a month ago. Now, after seeing Justice League, I felt the urge to print another one. This time, it's the latest Affleck version from Batman V Superman and Justice League. Here's the Flash asking if he can keep it.

New York Comic Con 2017

I have a love / hate relationship with New York Comic Con. I think the venue is inadequate for the tons of people that go, it's hard to get to, and there's nothing else really around there to do. But despite those things, I always come away from the convention having had a great time. And that is due mostly to the amazing people I get to meet. So here's some of the awesome cosplay that I saw at New York Comic Con this year!

3D Printed Batarang


A little over a year ago, I made a batarang out of foam. Looking to up my propmaking game, I just recently purchased a 3D printer and decided to 3D print one.

This particular model is from myminifactory.com and you can get the model here.

While 3D printing is great at making props like this and it looked fine right off the printer, I still wanted it to look better. A little sanding to get rid of the 3D print lines, some black spray paint, and some silver dry brushing and it's looking pretty good! Below you can see how it looked off the printer.


It prints in 4 pieces because the batarang is designed to open and close.


And here's a little video of it.
