Sad Reaper Costume CommissionView Comments

Posted by Sarrah Wilkinson | Apr 19th, 2014

I was commissioned by artist Annie Dunn to help bring one of her digital illustrations to life! Meet the sad skelly from her adorable painting "Teddy Bear and the Reaper":

The final sad grim reaper costume.

For my part, I created the mask out of cast resin, and the scythe prop from foam. More details and photos can be found on the Sad Grim Reaper Costume and Reaper Scythe Prop pages, respectively. Hope you love him as much as I do!

Male Turian Mask Kit - Mandible PlacementView Comments

Posted by Sarrah Wilkinson | Apr 16th, 2014 | Linked to: Mass Effect: Male and Female Turian Masks

As it is one of the trickier aspects of putting together one of my male turian mask kits, I took a series of close-up photos to show how that part looks on my sample turian (Victus). Hopefully this will be a helpful resource for anyone putting their own kit together!

The mandible and upper jaw both curve at the top and fit together at that point.

The mandibles form a sort of oval shape around the jaw and have a small gap at the front between the ends of the mandibles and the lower jaw. You will probably need to build up the area underneath with some epoxy putty to get the correct placement. This also helps secure the mandibles in the correct place.

Here are a couple of shots showing how the mandible placement looks from underneath.

When everything is placed correctly, you can see how the faceplate fits neatly into the gap left by the mandibles.

Turians and Big DragonsView Comments

FlintThorn's Flight by Sarrah Wilkinson - A dark, spiky dragon flying away from the pursuit of two others.

My art piece, "FlintThorn's Flight", is now available in a large 18" x 24" print! The large size really suits this detailed piece of art, who has turned out to be quite popular at conventions.

In other news, my female turian masks are now officially available for ordering. I was just waiting for the last of my shipping materials to arrive, and now we're all set to go! They are still limited to U.S. and Canada orders for now, but once I've made sure the shipping process goes smoothly for the first couple mask kits, I will go ahead and open up international orders.

The male turians are still a work in progress. I'm sculpting the jaw and crest pieces at the moment. I'm hoping to have them ready for pre-orders by the end of the month. Stay tuned!
