Otachi - Dragon*con 2014
"Movement in the breach… Category 4…"
Aquarium night at Dragon*con was unbelievable. Otachi was fun to wear during the day, and the Pacific Rim meetup was amazing, but I swear once it got dark out it hit a whole other level of epic kaiju destruction awesome. I felt like I was freaking becoming Otachi, surrounded by all the nighttime marine biospheres - the lights looked sooo cool in the exhibits!! And of course any chance to shoot with Soulfire (a huge Pacific Rim fan) is going to produce incredible work. I feel like Otachi is emerging from the breach in these photos, and she’s about to destroy Hong Kong (or Atlanta). Do your worst, PPDC…
While I consider myself a pretty experienced sewer, I had absolutely never worked with craft foam outside of simple, teensy props. I’m writing up a big breakdown of exactly how I made the spinal column and tail, but for now I’ll just say it was a huge endeavor! There are 162 individual foam pieces in the spine/tail, and 32 LEDs. Phew! Now where’s a Gipsy Danger I can drag into the stratosphere??
More photos and breakdowns can be found here!
NO! STOP THIS RIGHT NOW.

New Wave Tarot by Amanda Lee Stilwell
Friends, I have been working for months to complete the New Wave Tarot Deck. It’s been a long and time-consuming project. But I’m almost done. I have 9 cards left to finish and then we are off to print. I cannot even believe how beautifully this deck has turned out.
The first edition Major Arcana only sold out, but I am now offering the full deck to be shipped out at the end of september. The package will include all the cards, a informational packet and a box to hold them all.
Pre-orders are available here. While it is not necessary to pre-order, it does help me gauge interest and help cover the costs of printing.
Additionally, I will be offering limited edition large-scale prints of the major arcana. Keep an eye out here and on etsy for those details.
Thanks for all the support this year and let me know if there’s a specific major arcana card you’d love to see large-scale!
