Sailor Pluto Time Key (Work in Progress)


Materials:

  • cardboard
  • sculpting paper mache
  • paper mache ball (2.5 inches)
  • card stock
  • plastic dowel rods
  • Time Key template

Tools:

  • box cutter
  • scissors
  • Sharpie

This could be a fun adventure.  For *reasons*, I am going to be Sailor Pluto for an upcoming event.  I managed to find a cost-effective outfit through my usual online shopping methods, but the cost of a ready-built Time Key would put a serious dent in my wallet/credit card.  I was initially going to make it myself.  then after researching some online tutorials, i decided it would be too much time and effort and was going to suck it up and buy one.  Then I realized I could use a different medium so I swung back around to crafting my own.

This is a work in progress.

The start of progress!

Step 1: Create the template for the top piece of the time key.  It’s essentially two hearts, one sitting on top of another.  It’s a very simple outline, for anyone who wants a reference.

Step 2: Trace the template onto cardboard and cut the shape with a box cutter

Step 3: Make the cone that the Garnet Orb would sit on.  I fiddled around until the flaring at the top looked right and the bottom matched the circumference of the dowels.

Step 4: To be continued… (most likely with the sculpting paper mache)
