Since I’ve been getting a few inquiries on how I made #Endeavor ’s fire effects, here’s a WIP video of what’s inside the mask. #MyHeroAcademia #ProjectHotterDaddy Project inspired by @kamuicosplay's Zinogre Armor build I used addressable LED strips stuck on the flame edges of the shape. Material used is 4mm (or 6mm, I forgot) #plastazote aka #LEDfoam . The mask was about 35mm thick, and I made sure that the LED strips were stuck towards the “back”, as I needed all that space in the front to diffuse the light. To make crafting a lot easier, the flame design is almost symmetrical, so that I can use the same measurements and number of LEDs on either side. The left and right strips are then connected in parallel to the main circuit, so the animation is mirrored. Also notice here that it’s more beneficial to “cut corners”, as the whole perimeter did not need to have the strips running on every inch of it. Another thing that I needed to be mindful of is the direction of where the strips are going, which is made obvious by the wires criss-crossing, as opposed to just being connected to the next closest strip. Finally, I used 3-pin extension cables to make it modular, and not have to be permanently connected to the whole circuit. For the finishing touch, I primed the foam with Flexbond as it dries clear. I then airbrushed it using candy #vallejopaints colors to maintain as much transparency as I can. Shoutout to @pandahobbystore for letting me use their airbrushing rooms to practice as I had zero knowledge of it lol. Their rooms are very well equipped with tools and ventilation at a pretty cheap rate, which is perfect for people in apartments where it’s not easy to paint. The same design and technique was used in the torso flames. It’s just unfortunate that I wasn’t able to record a lot of WIP footage of it as it was being rushed a few days before #AnimeNorth lol. Do you guys have any other specific questions about the effects?
