BioShock Infinite - Songbird necklace by CrowMaiden BioShock Infinite - Songbird necklace by CrowMaiden
NOT FOR SALE/COMMISSION

Aren't my titles imaginative? /shot

I fell in love with Bioshock Infinite. I love the story, the characters, the art, everything. (Well, not so much the graphic gore. But that's what I get for playing a first person shooter)

Anyway, I really liked the steampunk feel, especially with Songbird. And the idea for this necklace just kinda popped into my head.

Made with Magic-Sculpt 2 part epoxy clay and shrink plastic, painted with Citadel model paints, sealed with a matte sealer that always ends up looking satin.

The eye is my favourite part. I indented the eye socket, painted it, and then made a circle from the shrink plastic that I placed over it. Then I sculpted in all the rims etc. I find that it gives it a more lit up look~ I also really like using the tube from the beak to create the loop for the necklace cord.

I'm thinking about making some to sell, or making them to order so they could be customized with things like different eye colour etc. Also thinking about getting leather lace to ramp up the steampunk look. Dunno. If you're interested, talk to me. We'll see.

It's approx 2 inches tall.

Edit: June 26 2013: Ohmygodohmygod! This was featured on the official Bioshock Facebook page! My mind is pretty blown, I actually had to go have lie down and have a nap because I was starting to hyperventilate from all the notes and comments in support of this. HOWEVER, I will not be making or selling anymore. The five slots were filled out at a low cost, because my intention was more to share the art than to make money. In fact, what I charged barely covered shipping and supply. I dearly love all of you who saw this and wanted it, and it does break my heart to have to say no. I do not have time to make so many, and if I charged enough money to make it worth my while, I would be making money on something that isn't mine to make money from. I hope to discuss with Irrational Games the possibility of permissions, but it may be a while in the future. Again, you are all wonderful. Thank you so, so much.

EDIT: The interest in this is more than I expected! I think I'm not going to make any more than 5 of these, so I'll update this if I hit that number.

The five slots: SLOTS FULL.

Thank you!

I used an epoxy called "Magic Sculpt" and painted it with model paints. The lens of the eye is clear plastic.

Well surely if the main bioshock page have shared and linked your picture they dont mind. Many many people over the world share content that isnt there for money. You arent doing a bad thing, i really encouage you to carry on doing something your good at. And im not just saying that because i want one but you have a gift and you should embrace it <3

It was very nice of the Bioshock people to not mind what I was doing, and my respect and gratitude for them is what makes me feel that it is not acceptable to make a profit from a product of their hard work.

So thank you again, but I simply won't be making anymore.

The trailer came out in 2010 when I was 11. When I saw it I was super pumped but then I had to wait but it was worth playing :)

do you really need permission to make these sure its based off a game but you made it your own.. I would so pay like 20+ for one of these.

The character itself is still copyrighted though. And I just feel it's polite for me to not make a whole bunch of them.

I have no idea how much you were selling them for, but I totally want one. I would be willing to pay for the materials to make 10 or even 20 more just to get one. It's an awesome piece and would love to have one.

Sorry, my concern isn't so much supply but the fact that I would like proper permission before going any further. Perhaps in the future.
