I chose the name "Bfahome" in a desperate fit of non-creativity as I was signing up for the Kanoka Club on bionicle.com in 2004. Maybe I should've thought about it a bit more, because in the following 16 years it remained my primary handle on pretty much any site or service that anyone here would find relevant.
(It stands for "BIONICLE fan at home", loosely inspired by the "Adam@Home" comic strip I remembered seeing in the newspaper. I was told not to use the @ symbol because it tended to
So I've made my way into the real world and with that comes restrictions, in this case space restrictions. I'm not living in a place where I have enough space for everything, including my LEGO collection. So for the moment it looks like I'm going to be prioritizing other hobbies and creative outlets over my LEGO stuff. Gonna see if I can get back on that Mandalorian armor and some other things I'd abandoned. Basically I came to this realization when I decided to plan a short trip back home
Prototype #1 of a life-sized articulated Gali hook. Rough vector design in Inkscape and laser cut on 5 layers of 1/8 inch plywood. The two pivot points aren't actually connected yet, the idea is to have pvc pipe segments through them so it'll act as a hinge while preserving the hollow nature of the original pin connections.
At some point I need to figure out a good 2d design program that'll let me do actual measurements and put some m e c h a n i s m s into it.
I've been a busy boy. Slowly chipping away at making my Mandalorian armor and my Spirit costume. I want to have Spirit done by Halloween and I might even be able to do it.
I've also been making a vacuum forming box for the makerspace. Been mulling over cool BIONICLE stuff to make with it.
Oh and my LEGO Ideas project finally got approved. You can find it at ideas.bfaho.me. Check it out if you like Miraculous! Or even otherwise.

A bunch of the other designs use shin armor that sort of looks like the CCBS shin armor and yeah I guess that's sort of a coincidence that comes down to generic design bases but now there's a character model that just blatantly uses the 2010 Hero Factory leg armor on her shins. I don't have the pieces for this, Blizzard, stop it.
