The new 'kid' on the block. A fan for God knows how long... though only in the past few years have begun to discover the glory of custom lightsabers. Another 'mitten' fiend. Though was amused to learn that a few of the more well known smiths actually hail from the area. While I currently only just begun my journey, I look forward to getting more involved and perhaps learning from those who've honed the craft...:3

Figured better share a few of the recently debuted Sith Padme that went over quite well at Shuto Con this past weekend...:3
Basically played with the what if scenario of both 'What if' of Padme being either being Force Sensitive or Aware and the 'What if' she chose to follow Anakin to the Dark Side... Received well during it debut con weekend...:3 Definalty got quite a few 'Wait, wtf...omfg reactions...as well as two potential 'Darth Revan?' queries...XD
The Makeup for the character...
A moment of rest and focus on the Dark Side
My my...it seems Han Solo has done something to piss off mother-in-law...XD

It wasn't a bad kit. It was better than an Fx Set of armor. It wasn't the quality of AP. I'm happy with it. I did a lot of upgrades to it. The belt was junk. I replaced the belt, hand guards, and most if not all of their internal strapping. The armor is thin in some areas but not insanely thin. You can't beat it for the early tier prices which is what I came in.
At some point I'd like to sell it and get an AP set.

Haven't posted in here for a while, so I figured I would share a pic from Celebration! I'm dressed as Jedi Revan, next to me is Darth Nonymous (my colleague in TPLA), and on the right is my wife with her Sabine helmet (which is getting a major repaint soon).
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"
Jun 23, 2017 16:24:16 GMT -5
ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?
Jun 23, 2017 16:37:26 GMT -5
ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.
Jun 23, 2017 16:47:16 GMT -5
profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
