This is beautiful!
Welcome to CNC
Wow, this is an incredible thorough instructable. Amazing write up and sculpture!
That's awesome! I'm so glad you made it - thank you for sharing a photo! It is time consuming, but hope you are having a great time enjoying your coat now that it's done :)
Full Size Xenomorph
Of course this can be a male costume! My understanding of the phoenix in chinese mythology is that it generally considered the female counterpart to the male dragon, while the western phoenix (what this is based on) is genderless. I'm no mythology expert so feel free to share more on that, I love that stuff.I can't wait to see it! Be sure to post a photo when you're done :)

Battery powered fog machine
Thank you for creating this project! I also fell down this research path and was dumbfounded as to why battery operated fog machines are so extravagantly expensive. I had given up on the idea of integrating fog into a project I have in the queue, but this has given me new hope! Horray!
Thanks for your help making it happen :)
Thanks, feels good to have both pieces finally published!
So far I've only worn it out to a light festival so while some people noticed it, I blended in with the setting. I'm excited to wear it for halloween :)

Phoenix Costume HeadpieceView Instructable »
You are right, I thought they were plastic but the two kinds of boning pictured next to the spiral metal are polyester. As I mention in that step, I am not a fan of either of these types of commonly found craft store boning. Both buckle and warp, and don't work well for curved seams. It's worth the time to order boning online. Plastic has some advantages in that it's easy to cut to length, however a flat stay like this is much better. For curved seams, always use spiral steel bones.
I link to the fiber optics I used in steps 2 and 3.

This is so clever! I love it.
Dragon Costume for Industrial Robot
This is amazing. I've been wanting to make a headpiece with real fire, but had no idea how to make it happen. Clearly there is danger when incorporating fire on your person in any application, but good job doing it in a well controlled way.
Your costumes are amazing! You can make it happen. I can't wait to see what you come up with - post some photos when you get started!
This is beautiful! Great idea for how weight the fiber optics.
Yay, you're the first person to make it! That is awesome, I love how you integrated their initials. Glad this came to the rescue for your last minute gift :)

I love light painting but have never taken the time to really up my photography game. You've really brought this to a new level in your photos, great work.
Very cool invites :) The aged effect is quite believable.

Really well done! I actually like the uneven dye effect, I assumed it was intentional :)
So cute! Really precise paint job, they came out great.

Nicely done! I think I have a boomcase build in my future, I'll be referring back to this soon :)
DIY Book Planter Succulent Fairy Garden
I love this! I just saw Muhaiminah's teacup planter and now this, so much magical goodness. The book is a great home for it. This reminds me of my favorite art piece last year at burning man. It was inspired by the old woman who lived in a shoe fairy tale and had a library inside where all the books held small treasures inside. There are some photos of it here in case you'd find it as inspiring as I did (I'm not affiliated with them, just thought it was really cool)!
