Onibaba rubber stamp
So I’ve always been curious about the Hansen’s attire.
Everyone else had standard black combat boots, but not these two. Well I did a little research and kind of found out some interesting things about them.
Interestingly enough, they’re actually a pair of Motocross boots that were featured in “Mad Max” which was a movie that is actually set in Australia.
- The actual brand name is called “Alpinestars Hi-Point Motocross Boots”.
- They’re famously seen in Mad Max, however they’re black, but have the similar six strap, metal plating style:
- The shin plate version (seen in the movie) of the boots that were imported into the USA usually carried the name of Hi Points.
- They were Italian made by a brand called Alpinestars
- They were very popular during the 1970s and the 1980s.
They’re now considered “vintage” and they’re super hard to find. (Trust me I’ve looked). So any of you Hansen cosplayers (or really anyone who loved the style like I did) plan on spending a lot of hours searching the internet and through flea markets or throwing down a lot of cash for these boots. Most that I’ve seen online go for a few hundred dollars. (I’ve seen a pair in mint condition go for $800 dollars.)
GDT, how did you find two pairs of these in mint condition? Teach me your ways I want a pair for myself.
Figured I’d share this information with fellow Pacific Rim fans. ^_^
Want…want diz so bad…*cry*
tiffy11taffy asked: i love your pacific rim dog tags!!!! where did you get them?? :D or did you make them?
I ordered a custom dog tag on ebay, and made the PPDC logo myself. It’s very easy, you just need two piece of cardboard paper, paint one in silver, the other in black, carve the logo on the black one, and stick them together, cut it in the shape of the tag, and put it into the silencer with the dog tag. that’s it~!
Please reblog and WIN A FREE SET: I have had requests for some brush stroke examples from my new Watercolor set for Photoshop. The image above should do the trick! Each of the strokes shown were painted directly on the canvas with my stylus, using various pen pressure and direction to achieve the results shown. No added textures, no filters, etc. were used. What you see here is what happens when you paint. I am confident that there are no watercolor brushes out there that perform even close to this set. Control wet edges, opacity, softness, and more with the stylus alone. Remember, you can pre-order these brushes for only $6 before Thursday of this week. A few minutes spent experimenting with these will prove that these are worth many times that price.
Thanks for your support- please reblog this post if you have friends that paint digitally. Remember, you can win a FREE set if you reblog - I will be giving away three sets to random Tumblr users.
