The Avengers: Loki’s Stuttgart Suit

Posted in Design, Physical Object with tags , on March 19, 2017 by Staff Writer

For the brief sequence in Stuttgart, Loki is wearing a black suit & tie with a scarf and an overcoat or frock coat. The following cropped screencaps have been lightened to better show the details of the costume:

Note that Loki is wearing highly polished black dress shoes with laces. His white dress shirt alternates from being a plain white shirt to being a ribbed, tuxedo-style shirt. Note also the subtle, ‘scaly’ pattern on the necktie.

My final (I think) design for The Hounds of Tindalos: an ornate and sinister sigil:

Slightly bolder lines, and a slightly more dog-like look, including the tongue.

The Hounds of Tindalos: Stylized Logotype, Type 2 A

Since my Tabasco Sauce parodies keep getting shot down, I thought I’d take a different approach to a Hounds-inspired design:

Alien (1979): “Balaji Imperial” Cigarettes Pack Replica

Posted in Design, Physical Object with tags , , , , , on March 11, 2017 by Staff Writer

After a lot of on-and-off work, I’ve finally printed, cut and folded my first set of Balaji Imperial cigarettes replicas:

Here’s a sample of the files associated with this project:

I made multiple versions of the box art, and two versions of a hypothetical tax stamp as well. The package art shown in the big photo above is as close to screen-accurate as I can get, given the references. Some of the smaller text I had to guess at, and the art on the top flap is speculative as well.

The die-line was tricky as well, and still needs to be improved in places.

Kong: Skull Island: Brie Larson ‘Tag’ Replica

After finding the hi-res promo stills, I was able to read all the text on the front of this tag, and (after much needle-in-a-haystack searching) identify the airplane image as well:

Promo still on the left, my replica on the right.

I see the movie this afternoon, so I’m hoping the back side (if we ever see it) is identical. Maybe we’ll get a decent look at the other tags. Otherwise, there’s always the art book.

The Expanse: Season 1 Amos Sticker Set

Posted in Physical Object, Design with tags , , , , , , , on March 5, 2017 by Staff Writer

After some fiddling around, I’ve managed to fit Amos’ season one patch art onto a set of vinyl stickers at RedBubble. In order to get these as close to actual size as possible, you must order the “Large” (8 x 8.5 inches) sticker. Note that these will have a white border, and that in season 2, Amos has added a P&K patch to his jumpsuit, so these will not work for that costume.
