WeirdoFX: I'm a prop/costume fabricator that specializes in Destiny items. I try to use the source material to make crafting more accessible for people who are new, or wanting to be a Guardian of their own.
WeirdoFX: Favorite subclass? There's only REALLY one that matters. Nightstalker, every-time. If we're being totally honest, I play in the Crucible like a snake. I tend to really overuse Vanish in Smoke and Shadow shot to rope people up, take the kill, and run for the hills. Shadestep and Mida always keep me hard to get a hold of. Feeling incognito is definitely where I hit my stride.
WeirdoFX: I really enjoy having the Iron Companion Helm. I really enjoyed the surprise gifty-ness associated with it. The one I have now has this really robust bronze coating that unfortunately doesn't photograph well. You also have to scream into it for anyone to hear you.
WeirdoFX: I start with a sculpt: Sometimes a 3d print, sometimes scratch made. After that, I'll move onto molding the object. I usually compare molding and casting like ice in an ice cube tray. I make this mold (the tray) and cast liquid plastic (the ice cube) into it. Afterwards you have this nice, solid plastic prop. It's the best way to make lightweight or glowing copycats of your original sculpt. I'll then follow it up with the best paint time will allow, and send it to where it needs to go!

WeirdoFX: I'm really just filling time up until PAX with past projects. I'm repainting some Watermelon Exo heads and ROI axes to lug around PAX with. Most people might not know this, but I'm usually so busy after something is made, I usually don't have time to make something for myself until months later. So these are definitely going to be mine. I'm looking forward to D2 so I can drool at new guns all over again...
WeirdoFX: I'm really appreciative and proud of the community we belong to. When I started much of this, I was a relative nobody to my industry. With a lot of support and work, my craft quality (and awkwardness) has gotten better. I wouldn't be where I am in my career without the support of the Bungie Family. I'll always be thankful of that and the great friends I've made through all of this.
