I'm currently recovering from having run my first 5K marathon ever. Sore as expected.
It has been a long time since I've posted hardly anything on here, for which I regret. There is so much going on almost every day now, its hard to really have any time to do artwork.
However, I plan on starting to upload photos I've taken of the "Smart Gatling" Kos-MOS prop that I'm working on. I've been trying to take progression shots, and I've got quite a few, so I will try to put together a series of posts that illustrate what I'm doing and how I'm going about it.
I'm not finished with it, just yet, but I'm about ready to start covering it, which is the last major step. There is much more work to be done, but the end is in sight!
On the cosplay front, I managed to fail at having anything to cosplay at Katsucon this year, because I couldn't bleach my beard successfully enough to go as Hohenheim Part 3. I say Part 3 because I did the oldschool version before, and the Brotherhood version last time, and now..my hair is short and I can't just lighten my hair anymore. I have to use a wig, and although I got a lace-front wig to use..it was so bright that I had to try to lighten my beard. Alas, my natural hair color has darkened tremendously in the last two years.
I'm still working on getting a viable Hohenheim back together though!
Cosplays I intend on doing:
General Cross from D.Gray-man
Denmark from Hetalia
Dojima from Persona 4
The Director from Persona 3
Abel from Trinity Blood (manga version, normal state)
Mutou from Katawa Shoujo
Producer-san from IdolMaster
Neko-sensei from Princess Tutu (if I can ever work out the logistics of the face)
Lots of older dudes and bearded dudes here, as one would expect. Most are closet-cosplays, with a wig thrown in here or there. Some are going to be damn hard, or require a lot of work.
That's it for now, going to take some naproxen for my sore legs, lol..
