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!

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

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!
