Fantastic work! :D <3
more arcane green lantern WIPS: one pauldron is just about done, working on the other one (then varnish the tops, josh still needs to add armor fixing loops to the bottoms- which I will then gesso black/varnish). Josh finished the shape of the mace & the LED wiring/acrylic window. The mace will next get covered in wonderflex, then gessoed and painted.
(also not shown ‘cause it’s boring, gessoed the inside of the helmet black, once that’s dry- i’ll do the weathering on the helmet/touch ups and varnish.)
some painting WIPS for Arcane Green Lantern. The pauldrons probably need one more coat of gesso before I can lay down the base coat (stainless steel) and then paint them. The helmet is a little further along- I did the stainless steel base coat yesterday and started laying in greens today. Still have some weathering/highlighting to do with it (so much green! also there’s a fair amount of gold, silver and blue mixed in to get the right greens) and also gesso the inside (which will be basic black).
Finally got my grey warden (custom designed by me) fabric swatches from spoonflower in! I think for the casual print (i’m going to make pj pants/lady boxer shorts), I need to make the griffons a little smaller, but overall i’m pretty happy with how they turned out on the fabric (and i can finally achieve my goal of Dragon Age gear from HEAD TO TOE). The square is big enough that I might make it into a bandana for my dog too, he won’t mind (though he does not resemble a Mabari hound at all)…
The other fabric came out okay- I think it could work for hoodies but it’s really not as excitingly dynamic as I’d like (also have to fix a tiling issue, thought I’d got it all fixed when I submitted the graphic but apparently not). It could probably work if lined with fleece on one side though. I dunno, we’ll see.
semi-relatedly: josh got our store up and operational, so be sure to go check it out! We’ll probably have some raw kits up in it later this year (probably after Pax East). If there are any things people would like to see from us, do drop us a line.
I asked Josh if we should also offer cosplay prints and the conversation went like this:
Me: Do you think we should see about offering prints in the store too?
J: I’m pretty sure prints only sell well for sexy cosplayers
Me: We’re sexy! right?
J: oh sure, you’re sexy but you don’t really do sexy cosplays. they’re usually bristling with weapons and spikes…
Me: Weapons *are* sexy…
(so we probably won’t be offering prints in the store unless there’s a huge amount of demand for them.)
Leliana: I saw what you were doing back there.
Leliana: Don’t play innocent with me.
Sten: What are you talking about?
Leliana: You. Playing with that kitten.
Sten: …There was no kitten.
Leliana: Sten, I saw you. You dangling a piece of twine for it.
Sten: I was helping it train.
Leliana: You’re a big softie!
Sten: We will never speak of this again.
(the sten/leliana dialogues are pretty great. i never appreciated them before but on my last DA:O playthrough I kept switching up my parties more than usual and that kitten convo is the cutest thing ever)
was stressed about costume making so doodled sten and the kitten (which did nothing to help finish costumes faster, but i am slightly less stressed). Did sten slightly differently from his origins look- gave him the arishok armor plus horns (so much better with horns. almost everything is better with horns or pointy ears) for fun. plus kitten.
I honestly don’t care if the comment was “cucumbers are delicious,” or “I drew this picture during a time of intense constipation.” Please don’t remove the artist comments.
It’s really disrespectful and sends the message that while you like the art enough to reblog…
this here, a hundred times.

im super pumped! I hope i get to see it in person!
thanks! are you coming to pax east?? (otherwise i’ll probably also wear her for the gotham city shoot at dcon and most likely have her at nycc)
getting closer to done with GasCat’s mask sculpt. hopefully can get a mold done tomorrow and cast the mask this week (and then i’ll have a fun thing to paint in between tedious tasks like corsetry, bustle sewing and making shoes).

Oooooh, GasCat and AGL for PAX? Yes, good.
actually AGL is a commission (though it will hopefully be done for PAX). Josh is doing Nightmare Superman for Pax (so we’ll have GasCat to go with GasBat and Nightmare Superman *to sort of go with Atomic Wonder Woman)
*Josh originally wanted to do Atomic Green Lantern to go with Atomic Wonder Woman (since they’re both from the same universe and AtomicGL was his idea), but with us working on AGL already we decided there wasn’t enough time to dedicate to his humungous grafted arm/other prosthetics.
First cast of the Arcane Green Lantern helmet (commission). Josh poses with it variously. Obviously it still needs a fair amount of clean up and sanding before it’s ready for paint, but it turned out rather well considering it’s our first time with these materials.
You can see more WIPS of this costume on our facebook page
