I know it's a little blurry, but I think it shows off most of the costume... other pictures are in my folder for the costume, so I just want to see if anything more needs to be added or what-not-ed about the costume... granted that it isn't in the best of locations... I'm planning on someday getting a professional shooting done, which I'm betting will turn out better than these pics.

Wow, nobody has replied yet? That's surprising... maybe you should include a reference picture since it is kind of an obscure cosplay... hmm... well, lemme give you my opinions.

IT SUCKS.

No, no, just kidding. I can do that because I know you.... and you really need to post a better picture... you can use some of mine if you want.

My real opinion: I really liked the boots, they had a nice shine and texture. The armor could use some smoothing, and you should do something about where the top of your wig meets your hairline... you can really tell it's a wig along there, not sure what to do to change that though. The armor could use a little more smoothing out, it looks kinda tinfoily... if you could find some way to dull down the shine a little.... but yes, I really did like it, and I thought you looked good in it.

I'll grab a picture off of your site... there was one which I thought was really good on there. As for the wig... yeah, I know... that was giving me problems too, though it's one of those wigs that's supposed to sit very high on your hairline. As for the armour... I really wouldn't know how to do that besides weather it somehow... and I don't know how to do *that*.

Try using a wash of very, VERY thin black ink? That's how they weather armor for warhammer figures.

thin black ink as in... diluting normal black ink? And how would you wash over it? cloth or sponge brush?
