WWWIP 2019 Week 9: Ali Mahou
Hi again and welcome back! We’re in the final stretch!
This is my last work log for WWWIP 2019. Next week I’ll have everything completed and gathered together for my photoshoot.
The last prop I had to focus on creating was the quiver and arrows. Runaan’s quiver appears to have a uniquely patterned large leaf wrapped around it. I created the base cone and the outer leaf of the quiver with 2mm Hard-Lite Foam. There’s also some 10mm Half Dowel trim on the inner base cone ridge. The arrows are made from 10mm Foam Dowels with Form-Lite foam details. They’re not hard, and are very flexible but they’re also very convention safe and light to carry around.
One last detail I had to finish up was the “binding” ribbon around Runaan’s arms. I tested two types of decorative elastics that I purchased and dyed grey with Rit Dyemore Synthetic in Graphite. I only placed the elastics in the dye pot for about 15-20 seconds each to achieve a light grey. In the end, I chose the more subtle/less decorative one!
The photo on the right shows a similar elastic to the one I used in the same beige colour that it originally started out as.
Thanks for joining me! I’ll see you for my quick blog next week before I head out in the Canadian cold for my photoshoot!
