The Art of Spirited Away
Uh… you speak-mean my Great Kanohi Miru?
It was close-near when I woke up here on Mata Nui. So I wager-guess you coul say I look-found it on the ground, ha ha!
I have heard tell-tales of a group of being-things that do not wear face-masks (so funky-strange!). I’ve heard that there is this thing called “pepakura” that is used to make props! (See, I’m even stepping out of tree-speak for this to make sure it’s not confusing.)
You can find a metric butt-ton of tutorials and videos online about it if you search “pepakura” through Google (yes, as a Toa, I need to know how to solve problems and Google is great for that). You can also check out the 405th Infantry Division for help! They mostly work with HALO props, but they’re really nice people! You can also check out this guy’s buildup of the Kanohi Miru.
Here are a few more links, too:
Also this guy’s blog post. He’s an excellent prop-maker and was featured in Make.
Also the 405th Infantry Division.
The constant rain day has just turned into a frozen snow downpour day. This is going to be interesting.
I’m busy designing reliquaries for shark teeth. I’m thinking of an interesting replacement game. (I got bored and drew sharks as saints and Renaissance art history the other day.) The idea of shark culls being shark martyrdoms. Also the idea how we fear sharks so we kill them when we have had minimal harm. So turning fear and hate to reverence.
If nothing else sharks in togas and shark teeth in extremely fancy boxes.
Um, wow. This King. Wow.

I’ve been considering this. Automation like Nasa and other space programs use is just as tense if more logical. It can go wrong just as easily but if you want a burn to slow down descent altimeter activator is a necessity. I works better. Also timers and staging and sensors for problems all essential in real aeronautics and rocketry.
So definitely considering this.
It is amazing how few major museum exhibitions are reviewed by the top newspapers in the world. This assignment is becoming less worrying as I get definative exhibitions to write about. The problem is finding them.
