New Armor for a friend by NekoFallenOne
New Armor for a friend
A photo of my dear friend, somecanadiangirl.deviantart.co…

Made out of sheet aluminum, with gold painted trim. A full set with chestplate, pauldrons, bracers and thigh-armor.

So, it is after the fun and chaos of Dragon Con in Atlanta, Georgia, and I am sitting here battling Con Plague. Luckily this is the only bad thing to come of the con itself (Other than not having any money again, lol). The trip down went well, and other than the masses of people attending the event, everything went fairly smoothly. My friends and I were able to march in the giant parade held each year (The five of us being the only DoTA 2 cosplayers in the parade), and managed not to die of heatstroke. I did find the event to be very busy, with hardly any chances of getting into a panel unless you line up outside the door an hour and a half or more before it starts, and the Dealer's Rooms felt lacking more unique items. Nor was I able to find a traditional Artist's Alley with hand-crafted items like the cons up here have. Oh well, each con has to be unique in their own way I guess.

Though the biggest part of the con for us was attending the Sunday night Masquerade. This was a fun time for all of us, able to showcase all our hard work and skills in making the costumes we wore (I having helped out with aspects on each costume for our group, from a quick sewing of a buckle to completely making the pauldrons for Crystal Maiden, and painting of Wind Ranger's bow), and showing them off to the thousands of people in the audience and watching it on TV. We were shocked at the size of the stage for the Masq, as it was the tiniest one we had ever seen or had to perform on (approx 20"x20"), but we were able to do our best in such a cramped space. There were tons of amazing costumes to be had at the event, and from the looks of some, and watching their performances, we did not feel like we would win, though we did not enter with any expectations. But when the event was over, and after watching some filler on the TV as the judges deliberated, we were shocked to hear our names called out by the host, Grant Imahara from Mythbusters, as winners of "Best Video Game". Shocked and elated, we marched on the stage and received our award. This made our entire con, and all the work put into the outfits, worth it all.

So, now, post-con and recuperating from it all, I am trying to think of what type of costume I should work on next for myself. I have a long list of ones I wish to do, but other things always had got in my way. Plus, with my skills now increased and including the ability to shape and use Worbla and casting of resin, I can now really make my future costumes shine and be amazing.

Here are a few of the top costumes I have been wanting to do:
Yuri Lowell - Tales of Vesperia
Kirito - Sword Art Online
Wizard - Battle Doll Angelic Layer
Wizardmon - Digimon
Minotaur Colossus - Shadow of the Colossus
Link - A Link To The Past/Skyward Sword
Chopin - Eternal Sonata

Dragon Con 2014 Masquerade Winners by NekoFallenOne
Dragon Con 2014 Masquerade Winners
So, my friends and I entered the Masquerade at Dragon Con 2014 down in Atlanta, Georgia. We entered and decided to just have fun, with no expectations or anything. There were some amazing costumes and skits, but we did our best. As the show finished, we waited for the results. Not even considering that we may win, we hear our group called out for "Best Video Game" by the MC Grant Imahara from Mythbusters. We all were so shocked and happy. This is a shot of us, after it all, with Grant. So fun!

DoTA 2 Silencer Cosplay Final by NekoFallenOne
DoTA 2 Silencer Cosplay Final
Here is a three-part shot of the final look of my Silencer costume from DoTA 2. Taken at Dragon Con 2014 down in Atlanta, Georgia. I am happy with the finished look to the piece, though I do have to perform a few minor changes/adjustments before wearing it again. (Some of the worbla bindings had started to melt/come loose after marching in the parade for an hour in the heat. Going to change how my pauldrons and shin-guards are attached so they will not pop off again).

I know, it's been a while since my last Journal entry (and I have no idea how many, if any, of you actually read them or care as to what I have to say..). and I thought I would let you all know about the trip I am going to be doing.

Next weekend is Dragon Con, down in Atlanta, Georgia. A group of my friends and I are making the trip down this year. It will be the first time any of us have attended this con, and the first one I have ever attended outside of Canada. As you may have seen through my Gallery, I have been working hard on a new costume for it, Silencer from DoTA 2. This costume has been pushing the limits as to what I have been able to do while building a costume, as well as teaching me many new skills.

Currently I am experimenting with casting resin gems for two of the costumes for our group (My own Silencer and our Crystal Maiden), and things are quite interesting. Still need to find a good way to get them to shine nicely, as well as adhere them to fabric. Been also learning to use Worbla and Wonderflex, and have found my new favorite material for making armor and accessories!

At the con, we will be participating in the Cosplay Parade, as well as one or two of the Masquerade contests, among just enjoying the con itself. Going to be a long drive from up here in Ottawa down to Georgia, but it should be fun with all five of us in a minivan! Will be gone from this coming Tusday to the following Wednesday. An experience to be sure, but hopefully a good one!
