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!

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.

      One of my players chose this mini to represent her D&D character, Marra Del'a'vare. Marra is a half Drow but she doesn't know it. She has pale skin, white hair, and red eyes and thinks she is albino. She magically adds colors to her hair. She used to be a thief but after things went badly, she is trying to do good and became a cleric. My players came up with quite the party for this campaign. In addition to Marra, there is a wood elf monk, a Hobbit rogue (he says halfling is a derogatory term lol) a Dragonborn paladin and a kobold sorcerer.
       
      Anyway, here is Marra!

      These are Reaper's 02830: Wolf Pack, sculpted by Geoff Valley. They are mounted on one-inch fender washers.
       
      I painted them for versatility, which is why there is a variety of color and base types.

      So these are a couple of "mantis warriors" which I'm painting up as thri-kreen, the insectoid race from the Dark Sun and Spelljammer D&D settings.  They are Reaper's 03552: Klichik, Mantis Warrior (the taller one), sculpted by John Winter, and 03142: Zizzix, Mantis Warrior (the squatter one), sculpted by Michael Brower.
       
      Here they are for scale (and unassembled) with Reaper's 03155: Vandora Waverunner, Pirate, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

       
      Straight out of the package they have a very flat silhouette.

       
      Here they are assembled, primed, and washed with thinned-down Burnt Umber.  I gently bent some of their limbs forward to ease the flatness a tad.

       

       
      One source said all thri-kreen were golden brown; another said they were earthy shades of red, yellow, and sometimes green.  I decided to paint the taller one red and the shorter one yellow.
       
      I mixed some dull, opaque colors using Iron Oxide Red and Yellow, each mixed with a greying-down blend of browns and white, and brushed them on thinly.
       
      As god is my witness, this thing is not so pink in real life.

       
      I painted this same yellow on both of the creatures' bases.

       
      Then I washed over them with some thinned-down Burnt Umber.
       

       

       
      To be continued!

      I started this figure to be a slightly overenthusiastic Russian bodyguard for Vampire: The Masquerade. When I finished her the GM said she would better serve as a character who is a Mage: The Ascension Void Engineer soldier, basically a space marine.
       
      This was also a slight experiment in the sort of colorless blonde character with invisible eyebrows, except I gave her really heavy eye makeup. She isn't really wide-eyed, but her blue eyes are very pale, giving a staring effect.
       
      According to Hasslefree's flavor text her two big guns are Heckler & Koch MP5Ks. A little Googling tells me that the MP5K is of German design, but also made in Iran and Turkey, and is "the ultimate close-quarters weapon, created for use in very confined spaces". From guns I know nothing, but okay.
       
      There is no WIP thread, but comments and questions are welcome.

      This is Reaper 80026, the Bones version of "Agatha Fox, Spy", sculpted by Andrew Rae.
       
      She is a modish young lady in a raincoat and knee boots, nonchalantly easing a gun out of the handbag behind her back. It looks like the original sculpt had a collar or necklace or something, but I didn't see it in the Bones version.
       
      WIP thread here. Comments and critiques are welcome, as always.
