The Aether Injector by deadlanceSteamworks The Aether Injector by deadlanceSteamworks
Finally in a state of completion, I present the Aether Injector. Well over 100 hours of intense, frustrating, painstaking labor have been put into this monster. The material cost alone was epic. This piece is designed to demand attention and draw people in to check out your costume! This can also be used as a center piece on a coffee table or as decoration above a fireplace.

Despite the added weight from the fluid, it's quite comfortable to wear. This gauntlet is complete with a 5' hose that runs to a pack designed to be worn on the hip, that contains 3x D cell batteries, giving well over 20 hours of continuous power!

**EDIT**
I was asked if I did any photoshopping or post production to this image. The answer is NO, these photos are exactly how they came out of the camera. The only post production work done was using picasa to create the collage. I added white borders and added the images to the top of another one. There are no saturation, contrast, brightness, or any other type of edits. The images are exactly how they were taken with my cell phone - Samsung Galaxy S3

** EDIT #2 **
I should have put in here -

Looks great and powerful while active! I'd probably add copper wire spirals around few pipes, so it'll add dramatic colors when dis-activated. Fantastic results!

at the moment, it looks like just lights and tubes for the injector part, but it would look cooler with some fluorescent liquid like neon that you could toggle by running a current through, though that may be a bit expensive.

IŽm not used to csplay or custome things BUT looking at this awesome work, even I want get one of those. This work, YOUR work is incredible, simply amazing. That took a lot of time and yet the rewards are formidable. I can figure how much satisfaction I could feel looking at this device done by my hands. Nothing to critique about it. The leather makes it look very steampunk which is a nice style considering the anime and stuff thing youŽll see eveywhere. The lights are blue. So attractive this way. Just make more with less quiality mats or equivalent ones. And play with the diodes, maybe purple? maybe red? green even? Extreme and powerful minds bear knowledge to make unique inventions.GOOD JOB!

Hope you don't mind that I'm taking this as inspiration for something I'm working on. I had already decided that one of the characters would have a gauntlet/bracer-type thingy that would strengthen her powers, but the design I had was pretty simple and boring.

The setting is based somewhat on Greek mythology, and aether is what the Greek gods breathed. I thought that I could add a tube to the existing design that draws blood from near the top of the forearm, infuses it with aether ("breathing" it for her), and then reinjects it at the wrist. So the basic concept of this is somewhat similar, but the look will be drastically different.

Would this be alright with you?

:iconmrboltzmann:
MrBoltzmann Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Great! Just remember, like I said, it'll hardly be recognizable. The shape is loosely based on a wrist splint, rather than all these tubes there'll just be one, and the fluid running through it will be aether-infused blood, not pure aether, so it's a glowing red.

Thanks for making this. It did turn my idea from "Because magic" into an actual, thought-out explanation.
