Here's some photos of my Rueful Axe, from the game SKYRIM !! It's the axe you can obtain from The Daedra called Vil Clavicus, and it's also the only weapon that can kill Barbas the dog. I've made it as part of a set of weapons for a friend who will cosplay as a warrior from SKYRIM.

Have a look at my galery for more pictures: [link]
And of course the Cosplay progress: [link] (You can see my progress for the helmet there too. For this picture I used the helmet made by [link] but she is helping me making my own in the same quality ^^)
Since my first Dragon Priest stamp went over pretty well, I decided to make another, for the few more that you confront in Skyrim's "Dragonborn" expansion
In the order that they are shown on the stamp, each priest can be found in the following locations: - Ahzidal - Kolbjorn Barrow (Solstheim's Southern Ashlands) - Dukaan - White Ridge Barrow (Solstheim's Northern Mountains) - Zahkriisos- Bloodskal Barrow (Solstheim's Southern Ashlands) - Miraak - Apocrypha (Oblivion)
This is a stamp I wanted to make for a little while now, featuring the major antagonists of Skyrim and its two major DLCs
These are the fiends, in order (slight spoilers):
- Alduin - The primary antagonist of "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim", Alduin was a powerful dragon (known commonly as 'The World Eater') who ruled over Skyrim in ancient times. Eventually, his Nordic opressors banished him forward in time, but this allowed him to wreak havok upon Skyrim (and all of Tamriel) in the Fourth Era. With Alduin's sudden appearance, and the return of his draconic thralls, the legendary Dragonborn appeared, destined to defeat him.
- Lord Harkon - The primary antagonist of the "Dawnguard" expansion, Lord Harkon is a powerful vampire, and leader of the Volkihar Vampire Clan, obtaining his impure and immortal status through a pact with the Daedaric lord Malog Bal. With the coming of the Dragonborn, the hero is given the chance to either side with Harkon and his ruthless clan; or to join the Dawnguard, a special organization specialized in combating Harkon and his minions.
- Miraak - The primary antagonist of the "Dragonborn" expansion, Miraak was supposidly the first Dragonborn. Instead of using his special gift to save the land of Skyrim, however, he chose a different path. Miraak ruled over the inhabitants of Solstheim, as a powerful Dragon Priest, gaining much of his power from the Daedric Prince Hermaeus Mora. By the Fourth Era, in the wake of Miraak's return, the new Dragonborn travels to Solstheim to confront this rival foe.
Ancestry is always extremely important in knowing about your family's history. One of Archer's friends can even claim ancestry to the Champion of Cyrodiil. Archer also knows someone whose ancestor was the Nerevarine. Archer may not be able to claim heritage to a great hero, but his family tree is less than humble.
Lao-Shan Lung: Meaning "Old Mountain Dragon", Lao is popularly believed to be the size of a mountain, or bigger. Lao-Shan Lung usually resides in solitude, preferably in the rocky mountain ranges, where minerals are abundant. It is generally peaceful, but can cause problems when it comes into contact with human settlements, wreaking havoc on even the strongest fortresses.
Godzilla: Known as the King of Monsters, Godzilla used to be a dinosaur, but irradiation from nearby nuclear fallout created a giant, mutated dinosaur-beast known as Godzilla. Godzilla is 100-meters tall, and is a walking death threat. Countless attempts by the Japanese military to kill him have all failed, even with the assistance of giant military-made monster machines, like Mechagodzilla 2. Godzilla, despite having threatened to destroy all of Japan, has also saved the world several times, against demon-monsters, hostile space aliens, and more.
Tyrannosaurus Rex: Native to the Cretaceous Period, the Tyrannosaurus Rex has been known as a fierce hunter. At 40 feet long and around 20 feet tall, tyrannosaurus rex was an apex predator.
Alien Queen: The Alien Queen is the head of the Xenomorph hive. She is smarter than most other Xenomorphs, and is their sole method of reproduction. She lays hundreds of eggs every day, leaving her motionless. However, she can break off the egg-sac to be mobile, and when she's not giving birth, she is a walking nightmare; she's fast, lethal, and it would take an entire team of Predators to bring one down, not to mention having to go through the rest of the Hive, including her special bodyguards, the Praetorian aliens, whose purpose is to protect the Queen against invaders.
Velociraptor: A cunning, and quick predator, the Velociraptor is a dangerous dinosaur. The Velociraptor is a social animal, and is very smart as well. It is one of the earliest examples of cooperation in nature amongst creatures of the same species.
Xenomorph: These creatures are the reason why people are afraid of the dark. Black as night, and silent as death, these creatures are biologically superior to any other natural creature; their mobility is unmatched, being able to scale almost any kind of surface, and they can swim; their blood is acid; their heightened senses allow them to detect any prey. They're pretty friggin' dangerous, man.
And thus through numerous strange unions the Dragonborn was created.
Sorry guys, I haven't been able to post much Skyrim or GMOD or anything else. It's a complicated situation, but the bottom line is that the computer I currently have access to is not as good as the last one, but that'll change, I promise. This is why the colors are also a bit weird.
So there,its pretty much finished building. I just need to rig up some LEDs for the barrel and do the trigger. Im also hesitating on its final form,as the prop model and the in-game model have different visual details,such as an aiming reticule and some bits in other areas. Its mainly cosmetic,but i'd still like to get it to look right :S
After many months of work, Lucario is finally complete. Please note, the suit is extremely baggy on my tiny sister who is modeling it for the photos.
Specs include: -microfleece black, minky blue, and teddy fur "bone" fabrics -completely lined bodysuit, gloves and shoes -pants attach via velco to the shoes - pink pad inlays on feet underside -LED light up, resin, follow-me eyes -vision out the eye-white -pepakura model foamed deadlock and blue shorts -balaclava based mask with moving jaw -glove shaped fingers for finger mobility -back zipper on body and mask
This suit was quite a challenge, more so than what I normally do for my personal suit, as I wanted it to last longer than one outing without needing repairs. Normally I handsew the majority of the fabric on the bodysuit, but this time around all the major seams are machine sewn. This made it challenging to attach the foam to the fabric, as it all had to be slid on as one piece, and tacked down later between the layers. Also, on my previous suits I've had many problems with ankles being too short, but (hopefully) with the addition of the velcro cuff around the shoes the leg fabric won't be going anywhere
Photo by Deathcom.net Here is a better view of the tail and strapping on the back. Too bad the backdrop matched and the lighting over powered my LEDs and EL: wire :/
Finally finished my Zekrom in the nick of time for Youmacon 2012, after over 2 years of WIP. I'm so glad he was well recieved. I won 1st place Journeyman craftsmanship, and had a blast stomping around detroit in suit. After the masquerade I even rode the People Mover (tram) back to Greektown and busted through Fishbones(fancy restaurant) to get back to my hotel room. LOL! It was so much fun. MUCH thanks to all my entourage who helped me finish my costume 10 minutes before judging, including More video and professional pics to come.
Great photo by my friend, at the Renaissance Center in Detroit with Canada across the river. Costume stats: Fullbody mascot suit moving jaw LED follow-you-eyes and horn tip EL-wire blinking tail movable fingers minky, and cuddle fleece fabric (very snuggly!) wings built into a backpack wings made of eva foam sheets supported by metal strapping horn made with hot glue front zipper screw on tail black cording on the legs
