See, I can't stay silent for that long.
Anyway, a few things I forgot to mention after Halloween, I did a lovely monocle for Darchala, an amazing artist and tiefling-enthusist, here's a picture of her costume that she wore it with, I absolutely love it. Her claws are a great idea and all of it came together fantastically. So go see!!
And now on a note of related importance: 2010 comic con. Needless to say I've been playing Dragon Age like a fiend, and the costumes are going to be based off of that. I know I want to make Morrigan and the Ogre, but my friend may be Leliana and I'd love to have someone as Shale or a Grey Warden (just someone in a full set of armor). It's all already in the works, it just depends who I can get to go through with it, since I'll be making all the costumes. I wish I had an Alistair, but unfortunately people that look like him have too many important things to attend to even when I try to bribe them with costumes (grrrrrr).
So if anyone has any suggestions, feel free to throw them my way. I may also want someone to be a darkspawn so that they can have a removable head (great for the skit, having heads go flying).
Anyway, more about these things later, here are a few inspirational photos of the costumes I will probably be makings...
Morrigan and Ogre
The Ogre is going to be a full body suit on stilts, sculpted and cast. I'm thinking of making the head a puppet so it can be taller with more realistic movements.
The Morrigan costume, this is what I'll be wearing. The clothed part. Everything I make looks like this anyway so I thought it was a good place to start. Not to mention I love the character idea.
Concept art of Alistair, I might make the Grey Warden armor similar. Right now I have a borrowed mannequin in my garage that I'm going to try sculpting armor onto, and then making a mold. Wish me luck...
So that's that, I have what....until July to finish?
Keep watching, I *might* just make it!
