  1. Yeah, we haven't used resin after one try (it was bad). They switched filaments afterwords to acrylic and are planning on getting a smaller resin specific printer for the more detailed stuff for cosplays. I mainly do the resin casting, and one thing with the filament we've got is that I can make a design with a container structure around it so I can just file it smooth and start pouring silicone to make molds instead of butchering our worn out tupperware and wasting a crap-ton of hot glue. I've also found that any type of resin will be affected by the weather, especially if it's about to rain (air pressure change/drop in temperature screws up the curing process no matter what you do). The down side to this is that the printer needs to be calibrated regularly; we forgot once, never again.
  2. My casting molds are gonna be keychain charm sized (about 5-8 inches big). And they have the Chiron resin printer (it's big enough to print out Roadhog's hook, no problem).
  3. Hi! Long time, no posts, lol. If any of you have kept up with my blog, then you'll know I've been making some charms made from resin cast in silicon molds. Most of my mold shapes are more "retro" and "nerdy" stuff like a Nintendo Gameboy, Switch, Switch Joycons, My Hero Academia characters, Hamtaro (yes I found someone that made a cute little Ham Ham), and Legend of Zelda symbols. I haven't made my own casting molds because 1) it's just as expensive to make as casting resin, 2) we have a little German Shepherd pup that sheds like crazy and her fur gets EVERYWHERE, and 3) I didn't have a solid way of making blanks for mold making until a few months ago. My boyfriend and one of our roommates went in together to buy a 3D printer to start making their costume props faster and sturdier (to an extent), and they've both seen my mold stash and wondered if I'd want to start making my own molds. So now we come to this post. I want to make some Guyver related stuff, and I don't know where to start. Should I go for the inactive Guyver Unit? Or something else that can translate well into a 3D print? This isn't laser cutting (I'm not gonna get some super fine details that could make a chibi Ramotith tag), but I can get a lot of texture with the printer I've got access to along with the software to build the model before it's printed. I'm open to suggestions! Instagram: anna.smith.545 (for all of my resin related pictures)
  4. One of us needs to win the lottery, buy up all the licences that are causing problems, and just give them back to Takaya in a neatly wrapped up care-basket so he can do whatever he wants to do with the series again with no hassle.
  5. https://www.etsy.com/shop/AnnaSmithRiverMarket?ref=seller-platform-mcnav Well, I'm making a whole lot of stuff for my shop. I'm starting to think I have an addiction to this new hobby, but I just love making these cute things.
  6. Lately, I've been rewatching Free! Iwatobi Swim Club with it being summer and the awesome intro/outro.
  7. Hello all! So, living with five other people in a 3-bedroom house is too damned cramped!! Not to mention the BF's sister that can make anyone feel unwelcomed and is veeeeery self-centered, the youngest brother that is a pathological liar and gets mad when caught in his lies, and the parents that prefer to go gambling over being parents by dumping babysitting duties onto BF and I without asking. Yeah, heck no. My BF and I are now living with two other friends in a two bedroom apartment (two couples, so it works wonderfully) with two full bathrooms (huge blessing for everyone, especially after dealing with my brother and his 2-hour long showers), and we've made it clear that the parents need to ask in advance if we can babysit the youngest brother. My BF and I are working at the same place; he got a downgrade in pay while I got $0.25 raise, so we're doing better financially and mentally. I've also got into sculpting little pendants with polymer clay and plan to do resin casts of them soon to put on my Etsy shop.
  8. Not sure where I'd fall in the Hyper Zoanoid category. I'm usually the one that tries to sneak up and snipe the enemies out of the way first, and if that doesn't work I go ahead in 'tank mode' to bulldoze the enemy NPCs in games as fast as possible. I guess I fall under Zx-Tole or Derzerb.
  9. Recently I've been on a Celtic music kick, mainly Celtic Woman. Anyone else listen to Celtic music, and who do you recommend?
  10. I recently got a copy for the Nintendo Switch. Gameplay is smooth, but everything else is.......meh. Can tell Blizzard didn't put much thought into it aside from the mechanics.
  11. All moved in and got the job thing going. Also got my Etsy shop up and running again while job hunting. Both my BF and I are much happier being away from the city; too much negativity there. We've been hanging out more with some old friends and planning our move (which will be to move out of BF's parent's house). I also got on a Celtic music kick with Celtic Woman, especially their son Tir Na Nor.
  12. It's an interesting idea. Just gotta be careful in how you flesh out the OC and make sure they have actual chemistry.
