As the story goes, I was urged to check out LazyCaps by a user in the artisan community known as Texthedestroyer. So I did, as you read in the last LazyCaps article. In doing so, LazyCaps approached me about doing something to give back to the community while spreading some love and positivity. We did just that! Lazy asked me for a color-scheme and went to work, Beyond the Otosphere was born as a result. Limited to 7 caps, we aimed to giveaway 5 jikininkey sculpts on Instagram.
The quality here remains the same and as an added note, this cap colorway is a testament to what he can do with his designs. As you may have spotted in the photos, these caps sport some glow in the dark (GID) elements that really wow’ed me.
The details put into the jikininkey sculpt is insane. The teeth and texture are really something to write home about and make for an amazing cap. I was a little concerns for the teeth being delicate since they are such small elements in the resin, but after seeing it in person and using it for an extended amount of time, I can confidently say there is no need to worry.
Same as last time! I did warm this stem up with some warm water before putting it on the cap to loosen up the cap’s stem, which is normal and helps the cap grip the stem of the switch. Other than that, the butt of the cap was well done and even has some extra fun details on the inside.
Finish & Thoughts
LazyCaps continues to impress me and I really can’t wait to see new sculpts and more of his work going forward. If you want some fun designs by an awesome artist and someone who takes pride in their work, look no further than LazyCaps. I mean it, go check his instagram and website out and see all the crazy colorways he has to offer.
