I beat the brain weasels. Yay me. I suspect I'm not quite the same as I was before, but we shall see. Anyway...

I won the Open Solo at Wellington Armageddon with the Grey Warden cosplay.

It was my first experience cosplaying in public and was kind of overwhelming with all the attention, but everyone was so friendly and made me feel very welcome. I am both amazed and rapt to see so many other people who are into making and wearing costumes from their favourite media.


There were four other Dragon Age cosplayers there - Cullen (who has so far not shown up in any event photos), Merrill, Anders, and Sigrun (who was part of the cosplay group that won Best in Show - yay Dragon Age!).

Here are some more photos:

You can see many more pics of the Armageddon cosplay at the fc.nz link. Totally doing that again, it was too much fun!

Woohoo! You look amazing in that costume.... although I hesitate to call it "costume" *g* For me, a costume is... I dunno, fabric and plushes and all that. You're in full plate there and all self-made! It's gorgeous! Any larper would love to have looks like that.

I love the gambeson (?) you wear. J wants one with the rivets (?). The metal knobs there. I lack the words. When I use a dictionary, it comes back with lots of junk because "Niete" in German is the technical term for a kind of metal button you hammer in as well as the colloquial term for slouch, wash-out, etc.

You'll know what I mean. Anyway - did you do that gambeson yourself, too? And tips when I start sewing J's?

A whole line of conga rats! Both for the Grey Warden which is, quite simply, stunning on each and every level, and for beating back those damn weasels.

Congratulations! It's always awesome to see people doing what they love and doing it well, and I'm pretty in awe of those who have the skills and put in the time to create something like this. You look fab!
