I have been following AFK on Deviantart since she started posting progress photos of Malfatto, so it was a great pleasure to finally meet her! AFK is one of the sweetest most talented cosplayers I know and it was a lot of fun hanging out with her at NYCC.
I don’t know about you guys, but I sort of have a knack for Guards. They usually have cool armor on, strutting around like an official badass… because they are. They’re the best of the best assigned to protect what’s most important. You don’t want to fuck with them and that’s why I think they’re so respectable. I especially like their headgear because most of the time it’s different. You usually see two eyeholes poked out or sharp pointed edges all around. This makes it look fierce. Like the crusaders, knights, or royal guards. There’s so many different types of getup for one character. It has such potential to experiment with. I wish I could draw well enough, but I’ll save that for later. I really think I have the mold, the image, but I need to shape it.
