This is scale-maile, a bit like chain-maile but with scales

Scale Maille

Earlier this year  Shorey Designs  invented fabric-based flexible scale-maille. They did this  by 3D printing individual scales with a backing tulle fabric, embedded after half a dozen print layers.

We could not resist giving this a go at Basingstoke Makerspace. As you can see we produced a robust set of scales with the tulle backing firmly attached. Several applications come to mind:  using the  technique for Cosplay items,  creating scale-backed gloves for bike riding or making an interesting necklace and ear-rings.  We really like the idea of using it for really neat  cat armour.

Why not come along to  Basingstoke  Makerspace Open Evening any Tuesday between 7:00 pm and 9:30  pm  and think about what you might make.

 

This is a costume of Kylo Ren

Basic Cosplay Helmet Making

Cosplay is a hobby that involves creating costumes taken from anime, cartoons, comic books, films, television and video games. The talk will show how to create a range of costumes. The bulk of the discussion will revolve around the Kylo-Ren helmet. We hope to build a helmet from scratch during the evening.

If would like to make costumes for family fun, want to make serious costumes for Comic-Con or  just want to understand why trains are sometimes full of superheroes, come and join us, This free talk is  part of the ‘Basingstoke Makerspace Open Evening’ at 7pm on Tuesday 12th June 2018.
