So I though i would post what my latest project is. TA DA!:3
It is no where near done but this costume has been quite a learning experience thus far. I have found what I can do with what I know and new techniques to do other things. My first time doing my own pattern and I am proud. It is all made out of bed sheets(the colors of my bedroom were the same so of course I had to <3 her) Kept the price down. Uh yeah. I hope you all enjoy as much as I do. You will see more in the future.
This is a replica of an original 16th century German Tapulbrust harness and a 16th century Raven's Beak Pollax. This armor is made from wax castings off of original pieces, utilizing original armor smithing techniques. It is made of mild steel and is custom fit to the owner.
From top to bottom we have the Close Helm (head), Pauldrons (shoulders), Brassards (arms), Gauntlets (hands), Cuirrass (breastplate and backplate), Tassets (upper thigh), Cuisses (thigh), Poleyns (knees), Greaves (calves), and Sabatons (feet).
This is free to use stock photography. I ask only that you link back to this deviation and leave me a comment with the art you've created
Model: Carlo Tuzzio

Behold my quick and dirty GotG/Skyrim crossover! More specificly, Guardians of the Galaxy trailer meets Skyrim's Nightingales. This comic mainly stems from the fact that as far as looks and mindsets are concerned, Peter Quill and my imperial thief Bron could be practically brothers. Also, poor lil' Nightingales - being all badass and cool with their batman-ish armors yet people are not convinced whether they even exist...
Upper picture: Vambrace 2.0, it's bigger than the last one and therefor fits the refs a lot better. Still having the unfinished hidden blade as mock up (I'll probably keep the tip, ditching the handle.
Lower left: Early hood construction. Later I got rid of some fabric on the inside and cut some corners off to make the points pointier and the inside blue lining go back again (it sticks out at the front).
Lower right: some gear put on, the cuff is now attached to the sleeves.
Btw, allthough I needed to heavily modify this (switch some stitching lines and adding 5 cm underneath) I still think I'm ought to credit ~Franky-bizarro for his amazing hood pattern, located at:
I was trying to get this done by today, but I don't think thats gona happen, I'll finish it next weekend. So I've been trying a new style, takes a while though. Probably would have gotten more done but I've been doing this thing which has vampires and werewolves in it.... Thats right I'm playing the Dawnguard DLC on Skyrim. Bout time.
