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.

Got part of the my costume in the mail the other day. It'll be going back in the mail tomorrow. It was cheaply made & i didn't feel like keeping it. I guess Take 2 on this part!

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.

      Been feeling the Fall season, and have wanted to try a rough burlap texture....soooo here comes Patch!
      first time making a corn stalk from raffia, it's not bad but I'll need more practice before truly jazzed with it. The pumpkin is from the Reaper Pumpkins set. C&C always welcome!

      Whew.  I finished him.  I have to say, this was a fun project.  The idea came to me sometime last year, but it took awhile for me to get around to working on him.  I've decided that monochrome relaxes me.  It's just easier somehow to take color out of the picture and just work on shadows and highlights.  I think I need to vary my levels a bit, but overall, I wanted it to read as a night scene, so I'm happy.  I like the idea of an accent color.  I've been wanting to try that for awhile now.  Though looking at him, I could probably pop the osl on his face. the pumpkin in the back worked out better- most likely because it has larger opening for the eyes.   I tried to find his sku number in the catalog and failed, but this was The Headless Mousling from 2014, sculpted by Gene Van Horne.I used a bones rat, a pillar from the graveyard set, and 2 pumpkins.   Anyway, enjoy and Happy Halloween!  I'm using my new Iphone and seem to have issues editing, so pics may be a bit funky...

      Hey, @ub3r_n3rd, here's the figure that I managed to finish. The top clear coat makes it a bit shiny, but I've got it under harsh lights.
       

       
      With the very zoomed in picture I'm not exactly happy with the shading on the right hand side where it transitions from light to dark in the middle fold, but that was vexing me for a long time. It's the way I want it to look, but I'm not sure everybody's eye will interpret the shape that I wanted to illustrate. There's also a woodgrain painted on the bow, but it is very subtle and doesn't look to show up here. I guess that should have been something a bit more stark.
       
      Really feel that she's missing an arrow in her hand, since she seems to want to be nocking an arrow, but there's nothing there. Need to work on my eyes for the next figure, but that's a common refrain.
