Dawn of Valor

Dawn of Valor - Joe Linsner - Dawn
A month of self discovery and searing from molding and shaping plastic. Armor is made using one heat gun during a heat wave in the garage while maintaining a relationship and a full time job. With one burn and several sleepless nights, I completed my armor days before Dragon Con 2007, All the piece were designed around the inspirational art of Joe Linsner. I purchased my awesome wig off Ebay (hoping to use it for another project) and my wings....
Are the adapted versions of my Balrog wings except they flap and fold.
I loved my costume from the first design to construction. I won "Best Armor" at this year's 10th Dawn Lookalike Contest at Dragon Con 2007. I hope to wear this in the parade next year with the other Dawns.

I can't wait for next year. I have a plan and its part of a much larger plan :)
