Diablo III in 3 weeks

Blizzcon 2014! Frank and Nat's friends got tickets and they came a callin' for some costumes to wear. Unfortunately they only had a 3 week window from start to finish to get these completed. 
Challenge excepted!!
The first few days were drawing, planning and agreeing on the concepts. 

After everything was agreed upon and mats were purchased (foam of differing widths, Barge, Free Form Air, Pleather, Upholstery Fabric, Airbrush Paint, lots and lots of hot glue etc...)

We used foam for most of the armor, held together was Barge glue found at our local Ace Hardware. (recommended to us by KnowOnesDesigns )
One of my favorite details though small was the hand engraved swirls I put on the arm gaurd, top right. 
Paul really like his neck guard, he wants his own now on something. 

Our friends Theresa and Cody came down after the 2 1/2 weeks and spent a couple days with us to finalize details, paint and fit. 
We personalized each with small details different from the game so as  to set them apart them from other Cosplayers.


 Final tests before they them home, as soon as we get pics of them in action I will post them here.

Paul and I have been creating, crafting and helping others with costumes, props, and more for a few years but have finally decided to make it official.

We have already had a few commissions and I will do my best to post some of them here.
(Why am I so horrible at online media haha - I need an intern)

Distraction leads to Suburbia

Untitled #1303

Untitled #1303 by dear-scone featuring a travel kit

Cute set from Polyvore. I really am digging the top.  It makes me ready to spring into summer lol. Yes, that is me, very lame.  I have been watching lots of netflix today. Quite a few Romance movies were getting me in the mood to be joyful and light, so while I was creating a collection on polyvore, I was distracted by my wonderful dog David Bowie and felt the need to go outside and play. This outdoors playfulness then cause me to spend a bit too long outside and upon coming back in, I found that my laptop's battery had died and upon logging back in realized my hard work of tediously choosing amazing outfit and accessory combinations had been lost!! Oh no!! So I searched the top I had been looking at and stumbled upon this wonderful compilation and have decided to share this work rather than attempt to recreate my own.

Valkyrie by ariabelle featuring feather earrings

I cosplay as Marvel's Valkyrie and have just finished a new costume for our photo shoot in Flagstaff.
I thought I would throw together a set of what I thought the Viking lady would wear in today's
time and fashion.
