Zombie Jesus Day. Easter to all you Rabbit enthusiasts. We here at The blog love our zombies something fierce. Well, really we like shooting them with shotguns. But today, we set aside our religious differences and come together with our family and friends and give appreciation to the One who rose on the 3rd day. And chased his family and friends biting them and turning them. So saith the book of Francis. And every one spoke “I Hate Elevators.” Though Scripture is great, My family and I enjoyed a great meal of Micro-wave origin, and rolls. I now sit fat and happy, waiting for the biting One to visit, with my good friends. Night all, Sleep close to your weaponry.

Latex weapons?

Latex weapons?

Now I understand the awesomeness of being a kid and opening your first Nerf gun. But unfortunately after you shoot your little or older siblings the family’s pet and the expensive thing in the house made of glass, it is taken away.

Hurray! The next generation of parents parents take away draw will have to be much bigger. The N-Force sword by Nerf  is what I would call a Latex weapon. Really. Seriously. So, our next generation of youngsters will be able to beat each other mercilessly. Hopefully they will learn about how they can open up their imagination and start LARPing with the best of us.

As we all already know, I like to make some interesting things. Now in fact i am looking for a new project for my down time. But to treat you all to something really special, I think another moldy oldie should be dusted off for your viewing pleasure.

 

Arts and Crafts anyone?

Arts and Crafts anyone?

Back in my college days, we drank a lot of canned drinks. Being my usually pack rat self, I felt like I needed to save up the can tabs coming off these recycled commodities. My roommates and I also had a Grocer close by. With that my idea came to fruition. A scale mail chest plate. In all it’s Glory and Awesomeness.

I need my mommy. I just got back from LARPing this weekend. and Oww. The good Oww, the one you know that tomorrow will be ok. But Right Now you don’t want to move for 16 hours straight.

The event itself was great. We rolled in early with half the crew. And rocked the set up. When it’s a group of people that know what their doing set up and break down become a breeze. Got in to game quickly to, rolling up to the inn. I think some of the regulars there didn’t know what to think. Just to prove that it was amazing, battle wounds. They really make the difference. I have never Fawned over a Larp event that I haven’t completely destroyed one of my body parts. This weekend was my Hand. And Face. And my All-overs. Like I said, Oww, and I love every second of it.

1 Dragon T-bone Steak, Comming-up.

1 Dragon T-bone Steak, Comming-up.

Sorry the post is going up late guys. I know how you all sit at your computers hoping that I post just one more time. But this is how I will make up for it.

In the olden days of my LARP youth, I found literal puns and Prop jokes hilarious. Well with that came the invention of this tasty morsel. Yes, it is a Meat Shield, Butcher’s Cleaver and a Fat kid (that’s me!). I understand and apologize for the Photo quality. The Shield is About 4 1/2 feet tall, and 10 inches thick. It’s made from 3 Mall food court trays, Bed Foam, and Red & white Duct tape. It weighs a ton. The Meat Shield’s awesome cannot be equaled so don’t try. The warning aside, you really can make anything with your imagination and some Duct tape.

Mining / Steam Punk goggels

Mining / Steam Punk goggels

Ok, well I was really bored. And from now on all my friends and viewers should know to never allow me to be in such a way. But anyway…

These are my new “Steam Punk” goggles, that I made for a LARP costume. I was interested in a pair online that looked amazing so I decided to just go for it. The mats happened to be laying around my house, but I used pleather for the cloth, waxed thread for the stitches and electrical fittings for the eye sockets. The glass was the tricky part. I wanted to have the ability to see but have the “old” look to them. CD cases. I cut one up. it chipped and cracked but stayed intact to make the great look I have now. Check out how to make them by Google-ing <Steam Punk Goggles> and look for the Instructables link.

In Reflection of the Chain Mail Bikini posts, I have come up with this. THE COD PIECE.

Cod piece.

Cod piece.

An important piece of armor in any mans collection is of course the cod piece. It may be viewed as a vulgar topic especially by the fairer sex, but sill important none the less. In the days of old it was used to protect the royal family jewels as well as the bloodline. But in today’s live gaming it should be implemented at all times. Any male who has LARPed, or even messed around with a boffer weapon in someone’s back yard, has had a shot in the nuts at least once. The cod piece, even being an old and antiquated armor piece, is still used to day in many sports. A cup. So gentlemen the next time you costume up for an epic battle in the Days of Olde, strap up, then cup check your friends for good measure.
