Reverse Beartrap - Amanda Cosplay (2) by Asuka424
Reverse Beartrap - Amanda Cosplay (2)
Here's my Amanda/Reverse Beartrap cosplay from the movie, Saw. I made the trap on a whim for the tenth anniversary re-release of the movie (holy crap, has it really been 10 years?!), and I worked on it off and on for about two weeks. No blueprints or sketches were made for it (no time, really)...just eyeballing the design based off of more reference shots that I thought were possible.

I'm extremely proud of the result, given that I'd never 1) made such a detailed prop, 2) never painted something to look like metal, and 3) had no idea what I was doing initially. ;) (Wink) Every time I've worn the trap I've scared kids and adults alike - I might enjoy the wide berths and terrified expressions more than I should! Anywho, because the trap is 95% foam (which no one would believe until they touched it), it's surprisingly comfortable on my head. The jaw balances the stopwatch on the back well enough so that it doesn't slide all over my noggin, and I left a gap between the "lips" for both screen accuracy and to give myself a breathing hole. Talking is also really easy in it, although I do need to yell a bit for people to understand/hear me. I can even fit a drinking straw in the breathing hole to take a drink without taking the trap off!

The other thing is that there's a lock on the right side of the trap...it actually does lock the prop together, and actually does lock it in place around my head. I wanted to be as accurate as possible with time permitting/my prop not actually trying to rip my jaw wide open. Once the lock is on and secure, there's only two ways I can take it off: unlock and open the back part (which is hinged), or rip the prop apart until I'm free. That...took some getting used to. But now I can wear the trap for hours at a time at con without getting claustrophobic or something! :D (Big Grin)

Materials used:
Craft foam, foam board, dowel rods, craft wire, nuts (acorn and regular shapes), PVC pipe fittings, metal spring, scrapbook decorations (ones that look like screw heads and gears), bolts, hair curlers, a bottle cap, electrical resistors, cat pole toys, split tube cable, small present boxes, a stopwatch, more hot glue that humanly possible, and a Master lock

Killzone 2 - Scout by Asuka424
Killzone 2 - Scout
Killzone 2 was the game that introduced me to the FPS genre and my love of sniping. To this day I fire up this game and play through the campaign.

Enjoy! <3

I've been overly busy with King of the Nerds starting up again (since I'm one of the contestants). I'll be getting back to them soon though!
