Kuriyama Mirai’s Glasses - Kyoukai no Kanata/Beyond the Boundary

Cosplay Photo by KUROHI

i was being nit-picky, obsessive,  and had an extra pair of glasses to spare, so i custom shaped new frames with epoxy putty, sanded, primed, the sanded again to a smooth polish, then sprayed it with some left over automotive paint, and buffed it to a shine again. i absolutely love the way it turned out. my only pet peeve left is that there is currently no ‘glass’ installed. i want to do that sometime in the future, but who actually knows when that’s going to happen… i don’t want to ruin this pair by accident quite yet. 

Crazy Slots, Scythe mode - for Kite from Hunter X Hunter

Commissioned for Sakura Con 2014. 

The person who commissioned this was 6”0’/6”2’-ish, so in order for the scythe to be proportionally similar it had to be 10 feet tall, literally twice my height. the curved blade itself was also 5 feet. It was a monster. It was made to come apart to be able to fit into a car fairly easily. the clown pommel-end also slides down the shaft as well to compress down even further. throughout the entire build, i was muttering about how ridiculously big it is, considering my own tiny stature. but the moment i handed it over to its new taller owner, it didn’t look massive, anymore. times like these, I’ve very glad i make sure these things are built to the scale of the wielder. 

It’s made predominantly with a 2” plastic pipe, cardboard, and styrene. So it was very light if you carried it vertically, but even then, the extreme amount of torque exerted something that extends 5” from its fulcrum meant that it was impossible to hold it horizontally without breaking something. 

it’s not finished quite as well as i would have liked it, and i don’t have any other shots of this because it was a 24-hour rush job, which was completely my own fault… but all things considered, it was ridiculously fun to make. 

I’ve been away from this blog for so long. and then it was promises of an extra hour in the Ballpit that brought me back.

quick and dirty age makeup test on the off chance that i had to do it on an actor for my class film project. it’s a little terrifying to see how i would more or less look like in 40 years.

bonus: disapproving grandma is disapproving with spectacles 

Lost track of time and did 11 hours of drawing. Now I have a hand cramp. So smrt.

…who knew he had 8000 petri plates?

agates-link and I are sorry not sorry for all the feels from "Do you Wanna play Deductions", so here’s something we wrote based on For the First Time in Forever.

Circa first season: Mrs Hudson is cleaning the boys’ flat and Mycroft starts on his diet (he’s having salad)

Mrs Hudson:

The window is open, so is that door

I didn’t know he did that any more

Who knew he owned 8000 petri plates?

For years I’ve cleaned this empty flat

now somebody’s here to stay and chat

Finally they’re going to solve a case!

They’ll be actual real life people

It will be utterly strange.

Oh how I’m so ready for this change!

‘Cause for the first time in forever,

he’ll play music with delight.

For the first time in forever

He won’t get into a fight.

Not sure if he’s quirky or crazy,

But he’s somewhere in that zone.

Cause for the first time in forever

He won’t be alone.


I can’t wait to meet everyone

What if he meets the one?

Tonight imagine him scarf and all, fetchingly leaned against the wall,

A picture of sophisticated grace!

We suddenly see him standing there, in that beautiful jumper he would wear—

I want to stuff some biscuits in my face!

But then they laugh and talk all evening,

Which is totally bizarre.

Nothing like the life he’s lead so far!

For the first time in forever

There’ll be magic, there’ll be fun

For the first time in forever

He could be noticed by someone

And I know it’s awfully crazy

To dream he’d find romance

But for the first time in forever

At least he has a chance

Mycroft:

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see

Be the good boy you always have to be

Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let it show

Make one wrong move and everyone will know

Mycroft (Mrs Hudson):

But it’s only for today (It’s only for today)

I’m sure it must be fate (I’m sure it must be fate)

A brand new dawn, a brand new day awaits (awaits).

Mrs Hudson (Mycroft):

For the first time in forever (Don’t let them in, don’t let them see)

I’m getting what I’m dreaming of (Be the good boy you always have to be)

A chance to change his lonely world (Conceal)

A chance to find true love (Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know)

Mrs Hudson:

I know it could end tomorrow,

So it has to be today

'Cause for the first time in forever

For the first time in forever

Nothing’s in his way!

"Do you want to play deductions? 
I wanna hear what you would say,
I never see you anymore,
come out the door,
like how we used to play!
I though we could be buddies,
just you and me,
i want you to show me how!

Do you wanna play deduction?
It doesn’t have to be deductions.”

"Go away Sherlock."

"Okay, bye…"

- Mycroft starts taking his studies seriously-

"Do you wanna play deductions?
Or operation in the hall
I think some company is overdue
I’ve started talking to a little plastic skull.
Isn’t that right, Billy
It gets a little lonely 
Not having you
Make fun of passers-by…
Boring. Boring. Bored. Bored. BOOOORED!!”

"Mycroft? 
Stop. I know you’re watching.
You’ve seen the places i have been.
You say: ‘be better’ 
but I’m done with you.
there’s no incentive to.
Just leave me be.

We barely see each other
don’t bother me
what are you gonna do?

Do you want to play deductions….”
