Anyone have any good /diy/ costume ideas? Costumes that are popular in pop-culture, video games, movies, etc... They should look really legit and not involve complex stuff like composite layups etc. Bonus points for low cost. Bonus points for costumes that dont represent specific characters (unless it has a mask) so that authenticity can be maintained. Example, Fallout raider armor. Shoulder armor can be made from an old tire, and welding masks can be bought for like 15 bucks.

I'm planning on making halawa myself, since the prices for it are quire horrendous. I've found some recipes online, but as you know, some people say stuff about something, while others claim that it is totally wrong and it has to be done in another fashion. so I ask you, /diy/, what is a simple and good recipe for halawa? How is it used best? Should it be solid, so I can use it like some painless ducktape to rip out the hair? Or should it still be liquid, so I can drown them? And should I use stripes of cloth? If yes, is it best to first apply the halawa on the stripes and use them like waxing kits or apply the stripes after I've poured the stuff on my body? also, in which direction should it be applied and in which do I pull it off?

My garage is leaning slightly to the left. One joist is cracked. The others are bent. Is there any way to fix this shit. Is a leaning garage in danger of collapsing any time soon. It's not that big a lean and I figured that if I just what's it called. Braced? Where you put a supporting board next to the broken joist/stud. I figured if I just braced the joists that I would be fine. I'm trying to fix it up so I can move in there, as I'm a 19 year old faggot who still lives with his parents.

Gun Safes

How would you guys approach building a gun safe? I rent a house and need a safe, but don't trust anyone that would install/deliver the safe to not blab that I have guns. It doesn't have to be fireproof or have a hinge door. It just has to stop thrives. I'd be willing to make something out of sheet steel the box has to be 55" x 16" x 16".

Hey DIY, I could really use your help So I have a pair of Swiss Army Knives I took apart and reassembled to make the knife I have now. (If you're wondering, they were the Hercules and One-Handed Sentinel without serrations or clip). I switched the one handed blade from the Sentinel with the blade on the Hercules with the nail nick and removed the wood saw. It was a fantastic wood saw, I just had no use for it. Anyway, I put it all back together with the standard handles which I will soon replace with something like bone blanks I will carve myself, but before that I need help in figuring out how the screws in pic related are done. I have searched a lot of forums, but they all talk about paying others that are famous in the modding community to do them for you. I just want help in finding what I need to do this before I go and fit and carve the new scales for it. Pic is 2 custom knives (not mine) with the type of screws I want. If it helps, the original knives use brass pins in place of the screws that are just peened to some metal collars under the handles. I'm unsure of the sizes, but I believe the pins are 2.5 and 2.25 mm in diameter and around 1in. in length. Sorry I couldn't bring any more info, the forums aren't too easy to navigate with such a small community. Will also be dumping pics of my current knives as well as of knives I found on the internet. Thanks in advance if someone can help.

hi /diy/, indoor seeds/plants/compost thread/troubleshooting plz? i'm growing some mint & rosemary from seed in my apartment, left my husband to water the seedlings for a week and he went crazy, leaving them waterlogged. the wet soil has attracted lots of blackfly, & transferred them to my big chilli plants. tips? can i go for detergent/soap spray, even on edible plants? seems i have a similar problem in my compost store- i bought a bag of compost which i transferred to a box with a clip-lid. (initially the moist soil in the enclosed space became mouldy, so i drilled some holes in the lid) now the soil is nice and dry, but now fruit flies (???) are living in it. should i give up on this batch & start again? also, tips on storing compost indoors-- is it also possible to make compost with kitchen waste in an apartment, or will it be to stinky? thanks in advance !

So I need to make a false panel out of drywall. It doesn't have to be 100% hidden, as it's going to be located in a closet. I just need it to look the same from a distance and in the dark. Help me out here /diy/. Pic unrelated

Batteries and power

So im making a drone and testing out motors with arduino and shit. Only problem is that charging batteries is annoying, so, is it safe to not use the battery and instead use the charger as a source of power? Apart from an obvious voltage difference between the charger and the battery (measured with multimeter, the charger outputs 20v and the battery 11v) is there anything which could go wrong?

Wind Turbiner from Car Alternator

I've been experimenting at home with aquaponics. So far my results have been very succesful and plan on entering the final phase (3rd year) of my experiment. I'm very excited however, in order increase the scale of my project to what is necesary, my current solar powered setup is insufficient. Solar power seems impractical due to cost per Watt.This outside my field of expertise. Any advice before I attempt contructing my own wind turbine from an alternator?

Joining small Sheet metal edges

10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: IMG_20130814_234208_408.jpg]
I need to make a small galvanized sheet metal bullet button, and need some advice on how to connect the edges. I have a mig welder and a propane torch; so my options are silver soldering, brazing or welding the edges. I am worried that welding will just be overkill, so I am considering soldering or brazing instead. Any suggestions? also since the sheet metal is galvanized, what prep work do i need to do?

Thinking about "investing" in a 3D printer. I don't want to build my own, I'm happy with just buying one. I just want to be able to print out props and stuff like this: http://www.instructables.com/id/A-3D-printable-AEP7-laser-pistol-Fallout-1/ What models are out there and what does /diy/ recommend?

Hey all. I need a little help figuring out a schematic for school. This is *not* a live project, I'm at uni and this is an exercise in reading schematics. So see the attached wiring diagram - I need to draw a wiring diagram for a situation where there's a single load (light) and a wall switch, controlled by the IR sensor. I'm not sure where to start!

Hey /diy/ I want to put together a cheap stereo set in my living room, for listening to music. All I really wanna do is connect my audio input (computer, mp3, cd, turntable, whatever) and let the music flow. The amp I am looking at is the one pictured, either this 2x40 watt version, or the 2x75 watt version. I have no idea what I should do about speakers though. What kinds should I be looking at, are there things I should be aware of when shopping (wattage, ohms, etc)? I like the sound filling the room... will it make much of a difference with "bookshelf" vs other speakers? My max budget is a flexible $150, including this amp. Do you guys have any other solutions? thank you so much.

Manual Wood Cutting

I know the picture is bad, but I'm going to be upright mounting this monitor, and need clearence. See the wood right above the CP? I need a way to route that out manually, and here is why. It is currently in my father-in-law's workshop, and he has a huge amount of tools and such, but if I touch them, and fuck them up, I'm dead. I have no experience with power saws or routers, but any idiot can use a hand saw. What should I look for in his hoard of tools to cut this 1 inch thick wood out?

I have a pair of Common Projects low top Ahilles, and while I was in garage spraying a layer of finish on an old coffee table I noticed the shoe got a thin layer of it aswell. It is a clear finish, but you could see the shine on the shoe too much. I took some paint thinner and soaked some steel wool to remove the layer of laquer that fell on my shoe. I took too much off the surface and removed some of the white pigment that left the toe box kind of greyish. I wanted to know if anyone here would recommend a good white leather dye that has no shine on it. >pic related It's the shoe I need white dye for I don't know what the manufacturer uses to dye it. It is a designer brand, and I don't know much about dyes but a lot of designers use vegetable dye.

Good day Diy. I am willing to restore this chest to its previous condition. Since I am no expert about wood types. Could you please tell me what type of wood is it?
