This week we have some interesting stuff. Again the difference between Analog and the Fantasy and science fiction is apparent. Analog really knew how to get more eyeballs on them. Also, for some reason my scanner hates Fantasy and Science fiction, they always come out blurry.
The fine folks at Zen Diving have come up with an inspiring and evil idea. The dive instructor will wear a costume from the creature from black lagoon. Not only is he going to wear it, he’s making it from scratch. You can follow along on their facebook page as he makes it.You can see him go from sculpt to making casts and fitting, then finally painting. It isn’t quite completed yet, but it already has more awesome than you should look directly at. I can’t wait to see this costume finished.
Current list of materials being used are: Smooth-on products- silicone, urethane rubber, adhesives, neoprene and much more… This is a full sculpt being done by me, no-recasting… Start to finish this should be a 12 week project and i’m currently rounding out week 4.
Here are a few choice pictures but there are tons more on his facebook page.
There is a forum topic on it, but a user account is require to see some of the pictures.
Analog always has such great covers. I’ll be sad when I’ve scanned them all.
Up first is from May 1976. We have some kind of a centaur loving up buxom breasted Medusa. The rich reds and her dress for some reason make me think of Spanish art work. No idea why, but that’s what pops to mind.
Up next we have some kind of a blank faced bandit that still manages to look a bit menacing. This immediately calls the game borderlands to mind. The jets in the background help add to the menacing feel.
For those who came here hoping for something to do with the video game and elicit animal sex, sorry.
