Cosplay Prop - Polar Star (Cave Story) by MegaTuga
Cosplay Prop - Polar Star (Cave Story)
This is the last Cosplay prop picture for now. Comic Con is just next week anyway so I don't have time to make anything else.

So, this particular prop had many years in the making. First the base for the gun is removed from an light gun from a pirated NES (it was so bad that all you needed to do was aim at the center of the screen and all the ducks would fall anyway). Then, a piece of Styrofoam which I swear that I don't know how I was able to make it fit under the barrel of the gun.
Next, I had to find a way to even the surface between the barrel and the styrofoam, so... duct tape to the rescue! (The fun also had "The Punisher" written on the barrel so, two birds in one stone!). A couple layers of spray paint and my work was complete!

But today I decided to take all risks and take it one step further. And so I used a black marker pen to paint over the details, and white paint for the star. (it was corrector ink before but the pen suddenly failed on me). It looks so nice that I regret not taking a "before" picture, like I did with the headpiece.

Cosplay Prop - Winged helmet (Asterix the Gaul) by MegaTuga
Cosplay Prop - Winged helmet (Asterix the Gaul)
I know it's not a much recognizable character.... but it is in these parts. And I love the comics.

So here we have a worker's helmet and two pieces of plastic painted in silver and white. Not much else to say. I had some issues drawing the feathers because apparently my brain cannot mirror a pattern based on the model I did for the plastic parts. Ah well. It doesn't have to be extremely perfect, I will probably repaint it by the next time since the event I'm cosplaying to is just around the corner.

For those who don't know Astérix the Gaul is a popular comic book series from France which depicts the Gauls fighting against Cesar in the year 50 before Christ.... in a very comical way. There are waaaay too many french comedy comics.

Cosplay Prop - Quote's Headpiece +Cap (Cave Story) by MegaTuga
Cosplay Prop - Quote's Headpiece +Cap (Cave Story)
EDIT: I forgot to add in the cap. Whoops. Now let's see how many people will think I am cosplaying as an albino Ash Ketchum just for the cap alone.

I have done a Quote cosplay before but I was unsatisfied with how it came out.

I used simple steel wire and... yogurt cup containers. They worked fine until I realized I couldn't hear anything around me. I had to always keep raising the cups every now and then, and it ruined them. So now I wanted to make them not as sound-proof as before.

"Ah I am so smart! Let's use actual headphones...! oh wait..."
But after trying a...uh "prototype", it seems like they work better than expected. And if I can't hear anything I can slide one of the sides of without risking to damage the thing. And the best thing is, they work as well! Well... just the left one. I couldn't separate both sides without damaging one. Maybe I will give it another shot if I happen to find cheap/used headphones that would work well with.

I also re-used the same steel wire from the previous version, but again I wasn't satisfied with it. So, it all ended up with me improvising. The wire was also slightly dangerous to the touch due to the edges where it was cut. And when comparing to Quote, it was way too thin. SO I buffed it up with duct tape, not only it looks better but also shields the wire somewhat. Of course not everything came up perfectly so that one of the sides has a better taping than the other. I should have thought this better but at least I got it before I did it on both sides.

Because I've been neglecting dA for the past... year? I don't know it's been so long. Way too long. I am really sorry and I don't know when I will be able to make up for that. Anyway.

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Uuuuh... help? *checks profile* 6 years... wait, WHAT? That's... longer than I thought...

What does your username mean?
I don't think I need to explain the "Mega" part.... it comes from Megaman. The rest is a common nickname for Portuguese people. Mostly used by Brazilian people. It also comes from Portugal which in case I didn't made it obvious, it's the country I live in.

Describe yourself in three words.
Reserved, Curious, Creative (I try to)

Are you left or right handed?
Right handed. Not off-topic, I write/draw by laying my hand on the sheet above the pencil/pen which makes it difficult to write for extended periods of time (I still can't seem to get rid of this habit)

What was your first deviation?
I deleted it because it was basically a two-panel comic using sprites and backgrounds that you can get from sprites-inc. I can't remember what was the first think I've ever actually made without ripping something off. But it must be this one.
 Tuga the Solar Knight - drawn by MegaTuga
I am very fond of knights and I always had some sort of futuristic knight design in my head for too long since I was a kid.

What is your favourite type of art to create?
Despite not doing it as much as I feel I should, Literature. I really like the creating concepts and aspects of things never thought before. It always puzzled me that writers never stray too far from the common topics and genres in fiction and at that point I wanted to do something myself. Needless to say that I have more ideas and notes than actual texts...

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
*sigh* if I had to choose, it would be manga. I don't know why. I could do anything else with what I want to create but in the end I'm always drawn to manga in some way or another, it's something I really can't seem to avoid.

What was your first favourite?
It seems to be gone from my favorites folder... most likely it was an extended sprite sheet of Protoman styled in Megaman 8 design. I think.

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Megaman stuff of course. And recently anything related to the anime I may be watching.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I don't have a favourite because everybody is great on their own. Not to mention that I can hardly recall most of the things they do until I see that they were the ones doing it. So I don't follow anybody in particular but I do pay attention to those whos nicknames are in my memory. THEN DEVIANTART ALLOWED NICKNAME CHANGES.

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Uuh... for the reason I stated beforehand let me check their current nicknames....*checks profile AGAIN*
Okay lets see... first the awesome trio: Lilac-Vrt-Olligoci Bassiroth and RandyPandy We have done silly stuff. We laughed and cried and raged at each other very often. Good times.
There is also MrTwinklehead which has listened to my bantering so many times and never complained.
And an honorable mention to yukito-chan for always being available to talk.
And everybody else that I met from way waaaay back in the beginning of the MMRP, when group accounts were a thing that wasn't even thought of.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
yeaaah. I can't mention just one. Including the ones mentioned above and a ton of others whose nicknames I can't remember (or changed) every people I traded more than public comments with, has influenced me in some point or other.

What are your preferred tools to create art?
MS word when available. But I am very fond of notepad. I'M SERIOUS. It is a program who doesn't offer anything other than plain words to type. I just wish that copying or importing from notepad files would not ruin the formatting

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
There is no other place than my own room, in front of my computer (or in the current case, laptop) that I can feel the most relaxed in. However 99% of my inspiration comes from my internal mental ramblings and those happen all the time at any time and in any place so...

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I will never forget the good times spent in the MMRP.

Replying to this on DA because MAL won't let me log in but I don't actually watch everything on watching at the same time, I was just too lazy to put most of them on hold because of the constant logging off, I only watch two or three at a time(the reason why most complete days are almost a year from the start)
