I know nobody cares except us, but the plot is thickening with the Book of Air RP I'm in, and it's a lot of fun. I just wanted to share that.

Onto something more of you will care about...


Yesterday was kind of crazy cosplay-wise.
1.) A lot of people on Twitter thought I was cosplaying from Dune because I posted pictures of the two pairs of Maker Hooks/Worm Sticks in progress for Lane & Tarl the night before. Ironically, I've never actually read or watched Dune in any of it's incarnations, so the Google machine was in full swing as about 5 people kicked off my morning by throwing Dune references at me and squeeing over my upcoming Dune costume. Haha. Oops.
2.) Random kid noted me on DA about how to do the Dia wig.
3.) I was asked for advice on painting body suits for cosplay, which I've never done.
4.) I noticed people much better at costuming than I am started following me on Twitter and DA recently. O_o HUR? I don't even know. I mean, the super-good cosplayers on LJ friend me because they know me from college. I don't understand what these perfect strangers are looking at.

Anyways.
Last night I got the base for the Blue Spirit mask done. It is drying at home.
Pic was taken last night, while still wet. I'm taking some minor liberties with the mask, and will be incorporating some design elements from the movie mask. (The movie may have been shit, but the costumes and sets were gorgeous.) I'm having fun with figuring ways to add some complexity to the basic mask design.



Mask versions:



I think I'm going to take a cosplay props break tonight to read, participate in the RP (it's my turn next), and hopefully get a sketch or two online.

The toy looks like shit, but the actual version was pretty nice. I'll do white (and probably flaked silver) accents on the mask though. I'm just taking some of the more complex mask detailing into mine.

It is.

(OH SHIT, PHO!)
