Epic Mini Feature Part 3 Final!

The last two mini features are here for you to read. I had so much fun talking with so many talented costumers at Fantasy con. Enjoy! Nathan, or the Salt Lake Psycho, is a Borderlands fan to the max. He spent three months perfecting the movements and voice of the insane Psycho of Borderlands 2 . Nathan was fun to talk to and he totally owns the this character. His practice and hard work totally paid off.  Nathan as the Psycho: Borderlands 2 Photo by VFire The boots are just old rubber steel-toed that I've had for a few years and I painted to toes with a silver rattle can. The pants I found at the D.I. for 4.00 and I removed the cargo pocket cording to make the belt loops. The armor pieces are expanded aluminum wrapped with electrical tape and held on by elastic strapping and denim thread (for durability). The mask was a 3.00 masquerade knock off from Zurchers covered in masking tape and acrylic paint for a fabric look. Creating a cardboard mock-up of a prop is helpful

Epic Mini Post Part 2

And it is indeed epic! Fantasy con really brought out some crazy talented cosplayers. Without further ado, check out all the fun costumes!!! All non bold text is the costumer's own words and information they sent me. First up we have Diane in her original character Kalias Sondrie (Pronounced Kal-ee-us Sawn-dry) Her costume is commissioned but the thought process and imagination put into making this character real is amazing. Plus this girl can fight in this! No seriously, she knows how to fight. Diane as Kalias Sondrie Photo by VFire Background Of Character Creation: Kalias Sondrie is an original character who was created approximately four years ago. She is the heroine of a book series that Diane is in the process of writing. The character has been worn at a number of conventions, renaissance fairs, and other public events. Kalias was a special invited guest and the ‘champion of light’ at the 2013 Otherworlds Festival in Phoenix, Arizona. Diane does not consider hers

Fantasy Con Mini Feature!! Part 1

I apologize for this one being up so late. I usually try and get the mini features up as close to the convention as is possible. Regardless, there are some fantastic costumers that I met and some really awesome new friends as well! I am doing this feature in a few parts so I can talk about the costumers in more depth to make up for it. Fantasy Con was a whole different experience from any convention I had ever been to. They had battle arenas, dancers, fire dancers, musicians, performers, glass blowing, blacksmiths, and so much more. (I was a bum and missed most of these because I was in contests, but my siblings got to see a lot and I cannot wait for next year!!!) First up on the mini feature is my little brother!!! My youngest brother, Veyron, has been to a few conventions with me but he has never competed with me on the big stage. We decided a few months before the convention to try and make a Wyvern costume for him. We came up with a skit and took off with the idea! Please note:

Contest Winner: Pastel-Colored Cosplay!!

Pastel-Colored Cosplay, or Sam, was the winner of my first ever contest and it was so fun to see her smiling face at Fantasy Con. Sam is a very talented costumer who always has a sweet smile and knack for helping others grin and relax. She has a ton of fun creating costumes and hanging out with friends, whether it be at conventions, photo shoots, or just chilling.

But most all, I love having fun!" - Sam Sam may appear quiet when you first meet her but she is a passionate and lively girl. She puts her heart and soul into her work. Sam creates characters from video games and anime shows that she can relate with and that she holds dear to herself.
