Finally finished one of the two plushies I have been working on. As you may have guessed, Benjamin is the second one.
If you dont know, Anthony is from Gears of War, Ben is from Gears of War 2, and when 3 comes out I may have to make a Clay!
I had originally intended to only do Ben, but I realized after I made a sketch that it was of Anthony. So I decided to just make both Ben should hopefully be done soon.... I tried to add one of his leg pouches but it looked weird.. Maybe I will try for Ben.
Like all the rest so far, Anthony is made of felt and all hand sewn.
The one good thing about winter? Snow for cosplay photos! I haven't really had the chance to get good shots of Book 2 Korra yet but we did snag a few down at Lethbridge Expo outside the gate to the Japanese Gardens.
The parka was the last thing to be made for this costume and it came together in a bit of a rush since I wanted it to be ready for this particular Con. I sort of closed my eyes and started sewing, hoping it would turn out okay, and it did (for once!). It's made of lighter weight wool and the same faux fur as the butt-flap. The white bands are done with cotton interlining because it was the only thing I had in the house at the time.
Currently lining up the new projects for 2014 and I thiiiiink a certain fire-bending asshole Admiral might end up on the list. Because sideburns. And because I'm jonesing for another extremely dudely costume.
Super-huge thanks to =qlippothnet for the photos and for giving me posing advice! (Otherwise I pose like a derp...)
Finally finished a cuddly little version of my favorite engineer, who just happens to be an expert when it comes to killing necromorphs... Hopefully you can see all the 'little details' that I attempted. Pretty much all the blue has silver/grey thread in it. There are places where you can see his....faults.... But Im incredibly happy with how well he turned out considering he's my third one! OH and yes, I used the new style RIG bar and the HUD on the front sticks up away from the body, which is probably why it looks crooked Err, Also forgot to mention he is made from all felt and hand sewn.
Second plushie ever, just finished him last night/early this morning I guess you could say. First plushie completely on my own. Incase you couldnt tell, hes supposed to be a Big Daddy from Bioshock. I was attempting to make something like this little guy ( [link] )
He is hand sewn (as if you couldnt tell), made from felt and wood buttons. I painted the wood buttons the colors I needed them since I couldnt find any the colors/size that I wanted.
One of my favorite angels, Tyrael the Archangel of Justice from Diablo 2! He's a badass. Seriously.
Although he is completely amazing in Diablo 2, you dont really get a good look at him so I designed alot of him based off of the promo and concept art that Blizzard has released for Diablo 3.
Im actually really happy with how he turned out, even though I couldnt get his damn hood to sit right.... Im amazed by how well the wings turned out since they were the one thing I really didnt want to mess up on. I included a side view this time to show some of the details that didnt show up very well in the other shots. He is made of felt and hand sewn!
I was finally able to take some new pictures of my Krieg Psycho mask. I have improved so much in the casting and painting process over the past year the old pics just weren't cutting it. This mask is resin cast and hand painted with acrylics.
