Cosplayer, gamer and digital designer. Sadly, I only get paid for doing one of these things.
Interests
I entered the new Cosplay Championship at LFCC last Sunday with the Diablo Barbarian. Very, very happy to announce that I won!

She was first runner up at May MCM Expo, but I'm so pleased that this costume has won something, after all the time and effort that went into making her.

Cosplay Props: Hellion Crossbow by LittleBlondeGoth
Cosplay Props: Hellion Crossbow
Find me on Facebook: www.facebook.com/littleblondeg…

The question for the Demon Hunter was which crossbow(s) to make to go with her. I was tempted to have two for posing purposes, but practicality won out in the end - if I'm walking round a con all weekend, I need one hand free at least. But if it was only going to be one, then at least it would be a cool looking one. So I went with the Hellion / Porcupine variation.

The body and limbss are an MDF base slotted together, then the whole thing is covered and decorated in Worbla. The horns are hollow - I started off by wrapping Worbla round a form to make the end tips, then removing the form, attaching the tips to the limbs, then working freehand to get the curve. Honestly, it was one of the most awkward afternoons I have ever spent. THE most awkward afternoon had to be painting the damned thing.

Sadly, practicality didn't entirely happen - turns out this thing weighs a lot more than you think it does in the end, and all the weight is loaded towards the front, so it does kill your wrist a bit. Still we suffer for our art!

Tyrael: I am Justice by LittleBlondeGoth
Tyrael: I am Justice

We loved the character design of Diablo 3 so much, we just had to make more cosplays from it. This time, Si decided he'd be Tyrael the Angel of Justice, complete with his sword El'druin.

The whole build is Worbla again (really getting into that now as a material), painted with gold and silver chrome spray paint. El'druin ias an MDF base, covered with foam and yet more Worbla. In fact, I hate to think how many sheets of Worbla we went through on this. Totally worth it though.

We don't do commissions I'm afraid... Because we work 9 - 5 every day, we only have a little bit of time evenings and weekends to make costumes. Generally we only barely get our own cosplays done, so we'd hate to promise something to someone and let them down by not being able to do it in time.

You can find good commissioners on cosplay.com though. :)

Why do you rate yourself as a hobbyist artisan? Your skills are that of a professional, or higher.

Because I'm actually a web designer - this costume making thing is what I do in my spare time. If ONLY I got paid for it! :)
