Here’s part two of my video series looking at making a steampunk mask.
As mentioned this is for the Asylum Steampunk festival in Lincoln at the end of august so I’m trying to get everything ready in time. This is the first time I’ve managed to get everything on to test whether it all works. I found that the ventilation unit on the back (which actually works and circulates air through the mask) was a little too low so the gas mask hoses were a little too tight. I’ve been re-adjusting this
I’m also making a steampunk revolver, which is the first time I’ve actually had a go at making a steampunk hand gun. This is made from copper piping and some plywood which I’ve covered in plastic, leather and some cast resin pieces made from CO2 cannisters and various other mechanical pieces.
I’ve also made some union jack shin guards which are made from foam covered in fibre glass which I’ve sanded smooth.
