Shing Jea Armour

Guild Wars

Last Updated: 03-12-2011

Originally I wanted to wait till the cosplay is really really finished but after I resisted for nearly half a year I was at the end of my tether xD. To be honest: Some patterns are still missing at my backside, boots and gloves need to be reworked cause they just fell apart at the end of that day and maybe Im also going to buy a wig for the proper German guildwiki hairstyle.
But for sure Im not going to improvise it like that again xD. All these small flaws are due to an incredible lack of time I got so caught up painting the patterns that I worked (after already putting hours into them before) through the whole night before the con and still wasnt finished.

Well, but now about the cosplay in general:
I still love it and it is my 2nd favourite monk armour cause it is very similar to Cantha but just was a little bit easier to do. :) And my second favourite profession (Ele would have been a little too revealing xD). I love the blue colour and I had a lot of fun with my sister and her boyfriend (who was talked into it xD) at Gamescom in August 2010. Although ncsoft utterly ignoried us -.-, the nice ppl at the Civilization V stand really liked our cosplays ^^.
Besides: Kungfu live in cosplay was one of the most memorable and funniest things xD. Oh and never, I insist never !, wear cut off rubber boots without socks! xD

Outtakes: When I enlisted on some photos at (German cosplay community) I received due to the cosplay rules one of those official PMs questioning me if this was really a cosplay o.O and that I should upload a picture of the char I was cosplaying as I sometimes still laugh about that. ;)
