This years Annotopia Festival in Rotenburgen a.d. Fulda was great again. Bigger and better post-apocalyptic area. We had also a booth where we sold basic stuff for crafting.
We we hired as extras and for some props for the new musicvideo “We are Legends” from the famous band Majesty. Special thanks to our friend Kai, who were with us.
Have a look at the awesome video:

Retro Games Con26/01/2019
We had a booth at Retro Games Con in Annweiler, We showed our post-apocalyptic stuff and our Freya was in the jury for the cosplay contest
PATIN-A sent us a huge package full of professional weathering / aging products for custumes. We are using some of the products since the beginning and will come up with some review and tutorial videos soon!
Visit their onlineshop. They have a massive amount of special products for costume weathering there!
AA and Friends at the Erlebnisbergwerk Velsen, we had a good time scaring 1500 people!
We were invited at a fright night in a corn labyrinth to freak out the guests! We brought also our camper and had our throne in a fotobooth. Thanks to our friends Kai, Nicole, Nico und Christian for the support!
We had a good time with some freaks from Cult of Chrome at the Annotopia Festival at Rotenburg a.d. Fulda. We also met our post-apocalyptic friends from Rotten Raptor and Rusty Bastadz. A very relaxed and symphatic fantasy festival with over 6000 visitors. See you next year there !
I wondered how to reproduce the Guard Helmet. The original had as frontpart a unique piece of buckled sheet metal. I tried to hammer these lines into a new piece of sheet metal, but that did not work well. Maybe i don’t have the right tools. A friend said why i don’t use worbla (this is a thermoplastic material many cosplayer use for their armor). So i tried and i think it succeeded. So this was the first time using worbla, next time i may do better, but this is ok for post apocalyptic stuff 😉
costume crafting hint
Often there are only small differences between a silly and a cool look. Have a look at the evolution of the Guard Helmet. Just moving the visor a few centimeters up makes the difference. So try to make such small changes in your post apocalyptic costumes and maybe you find the look! The first take is often not always the best.
From no eyes, over silly to almost cool and finally cool & evil.
Teaser for our movie project
This weekend we made the footage for a teaser in which we will announce our upcoming post apocalyptic movie project.
The Road Fortress
An excursion to modeling. The City Express Bus became a post apocalyptic war rig vehicle with a little diorama.
“The Road Fortress”
I found an interesting piece of scrap at the junkyard. Due the help of the people in the Wastelander Central Facebook Group, we figured out that it is some medical tool for acetabular cup placement.
I guess you won’t find this everyday. I think it will be a sword handle, or maybe i find something more creative for this unique part.
I am also very happy about the old diesel canister and the most perfect post apocalyptic round shield / buckler, it came already predistressed 😉 … I just have to add a handle, maybe i will also add some spikes to make it look more brutal.
Last weekend, we had a very nice studio photoshooting with Michael Marx and Ralph Jänike. Thank you so much! We got some very very good new photos, you can see them in the gallery and on the entry page!
over 1000 likes
We are very thrilled that we passed over 1000 likes on Facebook now!
Thank you people from all over the world for liking and sharing our stuff!
For celebration we will have some giveaways on our Facebook site for you soon, so like stay tuned!
We helped at a little Halloween charity event at the “Deutsch-Französcher Garten” in Saarbrücken.
Kids could make photos with some fantasy creatures for a little tip.
Kim as a shaman is the third from the left. Ole with Dust Phantom mask is #5 and Luke as some kind of undead knight is #6.
The best news of the year: There will be a Wasteland 3!!!!!
And it was funded after 3 days ! I pledged the Collector’s Edition, unfortunately the game will come in Q4 2019… let’s hope the real apocalypse will get us AFTER the release.
There is still a chance to pledge, please do it so we reach the strech goals:
Yesterday we were part of the trailer shots for the next con Fark – Fantasy und Rollenspiel Messe . It was big fun ! We met many people with the same awesome hobby! Special greetings to postapoc colleague D&K – Dolche&Katana and thx to WidowFX Photography for the fotos !
New character coming soon
Here is a little teaser of the new bounty hunter character “Cheap Tricks”.
just before you can say “WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?”
This basic post apocalyptic flail is made of two cylinders, a chain + two screws and two washers.
I got the motorcycle cylinders from the junkyard and the chain from my father, thank you!
Prosthetic Arm Update
What is a post-apocalyptic factory without a prosthetic arm? Nothing ! Alright. We just started building… still looks a bit steampunky right now…
little wasteland savage
I am currently working on the “little wasteland savage” costume. It has begun as a little gag while working on another costume. Now i take it serious.
Fotoshooting is coming, so stay tuned !
Simple postapocalyptic Dagger
Just made a simple post apocalyptic prop at the outdoor workshop. Its built of just two awesome parts, we found at the junkyard, and some tissue from a shemag.
The knob is a part of an old gas pipe with nice aged taps.
The blade is, well, a rusty steel blade :-). Maybe its from a scythe.
This weapon could be useful even after the real apocalpyse. It is functional, It lies perfectly in hand and the taps give some protection like a quillion.
Last Days Project
We are very happy that we can participate on a great project which is called Last Days Project. A german student will create awesome photo composings as part of a thesis. Check out the website. There you can see some great works!
We are really looking forward to this !
