Had to take a break from all the digital art and work with my hands again. Spent the past two days applying apoxie sculpt and texturing it. Still got the top to do, then the bony bits.
What my roommate, boyfriend and I did over the weekend.... Editing and camera work by Chelsea, Twin Victims made and worn by me, Henry played by Chris.
Finally found the time to post the rest of the photos by Kuragiman from Afest. A big thanks to him for doing the shoot for us. And a big thank you to Twinzik for being Harle and Serge.
This is still my favorite costume, though I really need to fix the neck before wearing again.
Back from Austin Ikkicon 2012. Made a quick M'gann and rewore Lynx.

I based this dagger off of the concept art because I found it to be a bit more elegant than the in-game version. It's multiple layers of Styrene, with spot putty and apoxie sculpt. Kinda funny that you can see part of Mehrune's Dagger on the right. That's my next project to finish.

Friend of mine took a video of some of the cosplays on display at the con. I appear towards the end in Lynx. Don't forget to check out my group's FB page: www.facebook.com/shinkastudios
The convention was one of the best I've been to in a long time. Not for content really, but more for fun with friends and the debut of a costume that actually did what I wanted it to. Lynx was a dream. The only problem came from the ears, which refused to remain attached to my head. We removed them and the wig was thick enough to cover my real ears. They'll get remade in the future.
It took about two hours the first time I got into it. I'd never use Telesis before, so I was trying to be very careful in its application and drying time. Its a contact adhesive, so you apply it to both the mask and the skin, then allow it to dry and push them together. The heat and pressure reactivates it. I was in costume for about 6 hours Friday. By the end, the adhesive was dissolving and the mask was slowly drifting down my face.
I wore it again for Sunday for a series of photo shoots with Twinzik who provided Harle and Serge. I'll post those when available.
Oh. And I won Best Masters in the cosplay contest! That followed by the Bad Fan Fic Panel, made Friday one of those days that I never want to forget.
Here's the Walk On contest, I appear around min 47 I think:
Less than a week till Afest and here is my test of the Lynx mask. Done in Ecoflex 20 silicone from Smoothon. It will be flocked and whiskers added. As for the rest of the costume: the ears are done, the neck needs flocking, the hands are being patched and the cloth part just needs a few details. Fingers crossed. Lynx from Chrono Cross is one of my favorite characters and I hope to do him justice.
