Good thing that's a cheap cloak option!  *** choke ***

I need to get back to finding a long red pattered scarf / belt and a black period leather belt.  I can fake the rest of it.

Well, I'm sure you could do something similar with something faux.

Probably.  It's still a good option.  Actually, I have a rabbit fur that would be fun to add to some leather armor when I get it.  But not for this ReaperCon... it has a different purpose this time around.  But more on that later...

Besides... I'm not wearing a Cloak in Texas except maybe in February.

Okay jumping into this late... 

 

I've been a fire elemental for Halloween. No one really understood that one. 

 

Was a D&D accurate sorceress once, with the weaponry associated, reagent pouch, etc. 

 

I have a set of clothing in my closet that are normal wear items, but if I put them together and add a costume sword, I become a rad pirate. 

 

I've been Cyradis (the character from The Mallorean by David Eddings). I sewed the costume myself as my first project. It used 12 yards of fabric and still didn't have sleeves - the skirt's circumference was 15 ft and could spin out to a full circle around my waist. And I made a blindfold for it - that was awkward. 

 

I've been Zombie Barbie for the Denver Zombie Crawl and performing Thriller on Pearl St. 

 

To be The Zombie Queen I got all zombied up on a normal school day and hung my yanked out wisdom teeth from my bandana. I creeped out a lot of people with that. 

 

From Repo! The Genetic Opera - I was the bad guy's bodyguard. Blue lips, short satin shorts, fishnets, white turtleneck, black blazer. Was fun. 

 

My boyfriend and I cosplay as Jaime and Cersei from Game of Thrones. I made the costumes with help of his mom before there were patterns copying stuff from the show, so it isn't show-accurate. Still very recognizable, especially together. We like creeping people out. So someday I'll remake these costumes to be show-accurate. I also want to make a Star Wars/Cersei costume (her black dress, red wine, red light saber, vader mask). Boyfriend and I have a running list of creepy couples costumes to make, including Ed & Al from Full Metal Alchemist (I'd be Ed). 

 

Was a Level 50 Mage from WoW once - with the Black Mageweave tailored cloth look. 

 

And my new favorite for Denver Comic Con... The Questgiver. Boyfriend's mom tried to make me an elegant dress and it turned into a fairy princess dress. So she added LED light strings into the skirt, more floofy rainbow stuff, and a pink mask. I made a bright yellow ! and got it situated over my head. And I printed "congratulations, you completed a quest! +100exp!" tokens to give out. I would make up silly quests when people approached me, reward them with a token and some candy. It was AWESOME. Got one guy to sing an epic norse saga (his choice of song). Definitely doing that again sometime.

Questgiver would be a big hit at ReaperCon... especially someone inside Reaper... except that would tie them down with quest bringers all day long... ok, so maybe one of our attentive Moderators would fit the bill.

If I was going to ReaperCon, I would LOVE to be the Questgiver there. I'd bring extra candy and tokens for it. Alas, I won't be making it. 

 

If someone wants to be The Questgiver, I highly recommend it for fun. And you can wear just about whatever, as long as you have the big yellow ! over your head. I recommend attaching yours to your head better than I did the first day. Wires on head with no padding. Ick. The cotton-balls helped a ton.

Is that an air soft???

 

The rifle is. Which makes it even funnier that my usual safety obsession meant that I never put a mag in all day without realizing it.

Whilst watching Avengers with the kids tonight, I explained that Captain America's armor in the comics was Chainmail...

When I was asked what that is, it was fun to pause and he movie so that I could get my suit for them to try on...

Full body vegan leather trench coats don't breath easy.

What sort of artificial abomination is "Vegan Leather"?

Boy, don't they ever.  One great thing about real leather, it breathes.

And, buying real leather (**counterintuitively) saves a tiny few cows.

 

(**If a cattle processing plant were to find they couldn't sell the hides because the Vegans had convinced enough people to cease buying leather goods... The only practical way to make their profit projections is: kill more cows to sell more beef.)

 

Wear leather.. :upside: ..save a cow.

      Last summer Bad Squiddo Games had an eyeblink of a Kickstarter (I think it might have been one week) for a line of Gothic horror minis, called "My Last Sunrise". Annie the Dice Bag Lady specializes in realistic non-objectified female minis from manufacturers worldwide and has a pretty good sense of humor about it.
       
      These are three vampire brides from the assortment. They have a classic Hammer horror look to them. They were introduced in the Kickstarter as "Get married, they said. Best day of your life, they said."
       
      Anyhow, I figured I would paint them up. 
       
      As ever (though I don't think I have mentioned it lately), comments and critiques are most appreciated. I'm always learning and glad to hear other perspectives.
       
      Normally I prime my minis white and wash them with Burnt Umber, a rich, dark brown. But I wanted these to look more chilly so I washed them with a cold grey mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna. It does not enhance the details as much as the darker Umber.

       

       
      Ultramarine Blue tends to dry with a grainy texture in thin washes.  In passing, I note that this looks like a pretty good crystalline rock texture and would be a fairly fast method for painting statues.
       
      C&C welcome!

      Last year PingosHusband, after noodling around Exalted (2nd edition) and World of Darkness rulebooks (Vampire the Masquerade 2nd edition, Werewolf the Apocalypse, Mage the Ascension, etc.), announced that he'd like to run an Exalted game set in the World of Darkness.
       
      We, his friends and loved ones, said “What, are you crazy? Have we not long joked about how unplayable and internally inconsistent the World of Darkness is; how its timeline makes no sense and its rules and worldbuilding are buried and often mutually contradictory; how foolish and suicidally incurious the various groups are regarding each other; and how so many of its many tragic angsty world-destroying problems could be solved if only each isolated group got its head out of its backside and actually talked to one of the others?”
       
      He said, “Hear me out,” and since we have long experience of his keen ability to run entertaining campaigns, we heard him out.
       
      See, PingosHusband has a knack rather like Alan Moore's ability to take unpromising old third rate comic book series and turn them into fascinating multifaceted mythic dynamos, or Neil Gaiman's ability to mine world mythology to create astounding and consistent and multilayered worlds, or James Burke or Kenneth Hite’s ability to take fascinating historical and technological developments and spin them into stories of human interconnectivity or disturbingly deep illuminati conspiracies for game use, respectively.
       
      More than once PingosHusband has taken historical oddments, played “What happens if this is taken seriously and assumed to make sense somehow?” and produced some wonderful story or game setting or world.
       
      (One of them won awards.)
       
      So apparently he did this with Exalted and World of Darkness, getting under the hood, finding the core of what worked and what didn’t, seeing what could be connected to what else and what made sense, what was clearly absurd, what needed tweaking, what could be fun, what couldn’t be possible, why things happened, and who could have done them. He looked keenly at characters, places and situations, saw potential for fun in a campaign, wrote up background, and presented us with an introductory players’ handout.
       
      I’ll get to particulars later. The simple version is that the world looks basically like the World of Darkness, except that all of a sudden a tiny number of people have Exalted with memories of the world of Exalted (“Creation”) and powers derived from it. There are five to begin with (the PCs), although more will come soon enough.
       
      I have to say, this game has so far been tremendous fun. Our group has been playing together for over thirty years and I have rarely seen all of us this excited about a game. Our teenage / adult children are also involved and we have been having vivid family conversations over meals about history, strategy, and characters.
       
      I’ve (of course) been painting up miniatures for the game. I’m having a lot of fun with these too. I’ll put links to Show Off threads when I have them up.

      Hey all! Got this resin fig at ReaperCon 2016 and decided to base him using a Basius basing pad with some swampy/murky/creepy terrain. 
       
      My goal was to emphasize that this disciple is unconcerned with his cleanliness, and is a deadly foe.
       
      I managed to work up a color scheme that speaks to faded Christmas colors which led me into an adventure idea wherein this summoner is bringing a twisted version of Krampus into existence for the holidays
