To this day, I have no idea what possessed me to do this. maybe it was the horrible day I'd had at work or maybe it was my allergies screwing up my brain in early May 2009. Who knows. All I remember is that after the thought of cosplaying Igor crossed my mind, I literally ran home from work, still in my terrifying flip flops and laughed like a madman all the way to my front door and into our apartment. I may have traumatised my flatmate for life but if it took me that long to do so, I'm only happy.

Anyway. Igor is awesome. Igor is lovely. Igor is the creepy old man you don't want to run into in a dark alley. Except maybe a little. Because there might be Personas in it for you.

My brief and very half-hearted studies in special fx make up techniques came in handy for the first time ever, when I made Igor. The prosthetic nose was made of gelatin (I first shaped the nose on a plaster replica of my face I also happen to have laying about and then made a mold using some more plaster [also, I'm not even sure if "plaster" is the right word to use here; it's past midnight and my English is going "bwuh"], poured the gelatin in and voila), the ears I actually had just gathering dust in my piles of things I might have use for later and the bald cap. Oh the bald cap! I actually considered making it from a scratch but I'm eternally grateful I didn't.
I bought a TV-quality bald cap and attached the hair to it with liquid latex. Ten hairs at a time. I hated myself for a bit there. After I'd glued all the millions of hairs on the cap I coloured the bald bits with some basic foundation and finished it with fifty tons of fixing powder.

I also realised why our prosthetics teacher had lectured about never attaching prosthetics on yourself. It's ridiculous. It's doable but takes a thousand hours more than if someone else is there to do it for you. Especially if you haven't had anything to do with more difficult make up techniques in three years. Never again. Never. Again.

tl;dr: I made this costume of bits. Some of it was fun, some of it was not.

So, my partner-in-crime, ~noyn, and I may have won the Finnish World Cosplay Summit Preliminaries. Which is, you know, pretty awesome.

I love how we're both trying very hard to be in character in this photo but fail miserably and only smile a very confused "wtf we won" smile. Awesome times.

Japan, here we come!

Chie Satonaka from Persona 4, for a friend of mine. Also, the unveiling of my new pattern! I think I've got it worked out for the most part. Slightly bigger than the ones I've done so far (12" standing), but I'm liking the new size.

At last!
i was thinking about to make a figure of the colossus #5 Avion for two years, i never realize that i can make a huge project, and a dificult one, it is not finished yet, i have to create the talons and some other things, but it is my first try xP.
I use and a old kind of clay, its only soil and water mix, and for this reason is so difficult to work with x_x
but there is a interesting detail on it that made me to chose this material for this sculpture.
*************
AHH!!
al fin pude empezarlo!
tengo 2 años planenadolo, pero apenas hasta q me decidi a hacerlo xDDD
bueno pues este es avion el 5 coloso de shadow of the colossus, adoro ese juego, es tan hermoso, y este es el coloso favorito de mi novio y mio por eso la espinita de hacerlo! y es un regalo q le eswtoy haciendo T_T TE AMO MI VIDA!
dios, vaya q si es dificil, sobretodo por que en este estoy utilizando barro, si barro normal q es en escencia tierra y agua, por ello me es muy dificil a veces, es q si te pasas de agua es muy fragil t las alas se rompen y a estar volviendolo a hacer.
Pero el barro tiene algo en su estructura q me hace tna interesante para hacer este tipo de personaje en el.
Aun falta terminarlo, me faltan las patitas y las garras para pordelo ponerce de pie por si solito, pero se q esa sera la parte crítica del asunto T.T
espero les guste, y JUEGUEN SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS!!

Congratulation on Persona 2 innocent sin remake releasing on PSP on 14/04/11 in Japan! The story involved with main characters' childhood was great. I can't wait to play. ( I'm a Megatenist (person who loves Shin Megani Tensei series). :-))

This is the biggest set of coasters I've ever made. This set depicts the tarot cards from Persona 3, Persona 4, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 4 Arena (hence some double arcana cards, for example, two Fools, two Strength, and so on). I do take commissions on these coasters, whether you want just one, or a few, or all of them :) You can either send me a note here on DeviantArt, or on the links below.

Be sure to check out my Etsy: [link]
Also, the shop has a Facebook page: [link]
