After the Bomb

2018-04-20T03:50:24.154-07:00

Dmitri Zaitsev of Nuclear Snail Studios has made a career out of creating post-apocalyptic costuming and showing others how to do the same. His latest is this phenomonal dystopian marine costume. Just click through for the full gallery, which features some detailed closeups.








Heart How-To

2018-04-19T03:45:26.775-07:00

Madeyewlook Twice brings us this handy tutorial on crafting a realistic human heart using clay and off the shelf makeup products. This would make a great weekend project with the kids! Heh.

That Which Shows the Way

2018-04-18T03:51:56.635-07:00

This Vegvisir adorned tome comes to us from the talented Alex Libris.  Featuring a hand tooled leather cover and custom hardware.





Things That Go Boom

2018-04-17T03:49:17.821-07:00

Chris at Chunk-A-Nuke props brings us this menacing selection of explosives from Fallout: New Vegas.  I particularly like the Plasma Mine and Red Glare ammo cylinder.





The Spear of Destiny

2018-04-16T03:52:06.726-07:00

The unveiling of Dale Bigford's Immortality Box continues.  Some of the latest items include a very well done take on the Spear of Destiny and a Hittite Lich Phylactery.  As with the other artifacts their respective back stories are outstanding.

As an aside, my spellcheck tried to change Lich to Luchador.  The thought of a millennia old Hittite sorcerer competing in the squared circle of Lucha Libre wrestling is strangely compelling.









Blade of the Dwemer

2018-04-14T06:23:54.012-07:00

This beautiful recreation of Skyrim's Dwarven Dagger comes to us from artist Daniel O'Keefe.





Ask Not for Whom the Bell Screams...

2018-04-13T03:43:05.638-07:00

...it screams for thee.  Warhammerlarp brings us this Skaven Screaming Bell from a Russian, uh, Warhammer LARP.





The Spring Harvest

2018-04-12T03:38:11.567-07:00

Alice Tochylovska brings us the first fruits of the spring mandrake harvest





Idol of the Forgotten God

2018-04-11T03:38:08.983-07:00

The latest installment of Dale Bigford's Immortality Box is this very cool Idol of the Forgotten God.  As with the other objects it has a killer backstory.








Dragon Teeth

2018-04-10T03:43:33.610-07:00

It's turning into a dentally themed week around here.  Burned Raven Tales brings us this collection of dragon's teeth featuring some nicely detailed root canals.





A Taste for Teeth

The Tree of Life

2018-04-06T03:54:30.568-07:00

This amazing piece of work comes to us from artist Oskars Pantelejevs. The Tree of Life is a conjectural occult item intended as the McGuffin in an Indiana Jones or Tomb Raider style movie. The design and craftsmanship is wonderful, but it's also mechanized- the tree actually unfolds to reveal the glowing gem contained by the filagreed branches.








From the Blasted Heath

2018-04-05T04:13:49.556-07:00

I'm sure readers here are familiar with the strange events west of Arkham in the infamous "Blasted Heath".   Corwin Ravencroft brings us a specimen of the strange vegetation found there before it was inundated.





Mask of the Shaman

The talented Don Simpson returns to our pages with this amulet of the Dragon's Eye.  Carved from antler with an inset glass eye.




Warrior of the Clans

2018-04-02T03:50:15.666-07:00

Shiniclaes brings us this well done set of Tolkien-inspired dwarven armor. The gallery features some great shots from photographer Anna Osintseva.






Babythulhu

2018-04-01T07:09:17.035-07:00

Swedish artist Ann-Louise Svennson brings us this delightful take on the traditional Lovecraftian depiction of Cthulhu.  The warming cap really makes the piece.





Who Wants to Live Forever?

2018-03-31T05:43:29.831-07:00

Marika Schirmacher returns to our pages with this Elder Scrolls inspired dragonstone. Sculpted from black polymer clay with a painted stone finish.




Immortality for Sale

2018-03-26T18:27:06.731-07:00

“Now then, the inventory.” Grasping the two rings the Dealer swung the chest open. “20 items. Particularly collected in this chest and tailored to your spectrum of needs.”

The cabinet swung open to reveal two equal sections with a complex array of doors. All different sizes, all tagged with a number and in no discernable order.

“MY spectrum of needs…?”

“We research all our clients and match them with a Dealer who’s inventory best suits his persona. With items that meet some inherent “need” of the client’s mentality. Acquiring a means of immortality is QUITE personal.”

What price would you be willing to pay for immortality? The answer may well be in this intriguing box. Dale Bigford will be revealing the contents over the next week. I can't wait to see what's inside.




The Plague Rats

2018-03-23T03:37:40.063-07:00

Ick.  These gruesome plague rats come to us from artist Patrick Magee.
