My favorite photos taken at Chibichibicon- Olympia, WA- 2/14/15 Won 2nd place in the cosplay contest with this costume! There are some minor details that I will be adjusting to it before the next convention, but I was really happy with all the positive feedback I received on it :)
Materials used to make this costume: -Craft Foam -Hot Glue -Silver and Black Acrylic Paint -Elastic -Pleather Fabric
Materials for the prop: -Poster Board Foam -Same Silver and Black Acrylic Paint -Twine (will use a more elastic string when not at conventions for the allusion of drawing the bow)
ITS DONE ITS DONE ITS DONE ITS DONE
All i have to do is spend a few minutes aging it. Its done. Holy crap i want to cry. Ive never made anything like this before and its done. Ooooh sweet baby Azura its done. Ok im doing a short photoshoot with it over the next couple days, and then like. A huge Skyrim photoshoot with props and set dressing at a later date. I was originally going to do the big one right away but I NEED to get the celebratory photoshoot itch out of the way so I can plan properly.
The Skyrim Hold shield coasters. They’re roughly 4.5" and will hold any size glass. They’re cold cast in aluminum and buffed and polished for a metal shine along the rim of the shield. Each shield is hand painted acrylic and waterproofed to make sure the paint won’t get damaged.
Finished up my Dragon Priest mask build. It’s been ready to paint for ages, just never got around to it until today. Made of EVA foam, probably about 10 hours start to finish, so it isn’t my best. I’m still pretty happy with it.
