Spineless

Unlike Alanis Morisette, my model does not abide to any man. (ahem, ahem) still, the name was fitting.

So, apart from the winged mechanism, this is what I have been up to:

Aria

Fully articulated spine “reinforcement” (wich didn’t reinforce a thing, it’s just a fashion accesory) for a Steampunk Fair. (Eurosteamcon 2015)

Apart from the M3 balls and the axles, everything was machined or cut @ home. 28.5 hours of machining in it. I even developed a technique to make room temperature ball joints at home.

See it in it’s full range of movement, it’s hipnotic!

A very collaborative model allowed the pieces to be adhered directly to her skin:

A different angle:

Unfortunately, I ended up with a schedule so tight I just had time to machine, no photos of the process or step by step or anything. Altough it’s basic machining and reaming. The interesting bit, (the ball joints) will have it’s own post.

Here’s how cool it looked:

Also, one with both the spinal prop and the fairy wing mechanism:
