This is the worst feeling in the world…being so burnt out on making stuff but having so much left to do. :( I just want to sleep finally.

Anyhoo, 99.999% finished Fili belt. Got to replace that one stupid little thread that I didn’t have the suede lace left for. 

This is gorgeous.

Nosferatu; roots of the Vampyr Nation

Alex CF 2014

A beautiful ebony study case, detailing the findings of the late Cleric Abramo, in his tireless quest to seek out the source of the Vampyric viral strain, discovered the roots of the Vampyr species - Upir, or Nosferatu, a secretive enclave of ancient creatures. Please visit http://www.merrylinmuseum.com/index/#/nosferatu/ to find out more information.

Third Marshal of the Riddermark isn’t always on his guard.

I really wish I could find the pictures we were in with some of the other amazing cosplayers. Maybe after my leather classes I’ll make a belt pouch to carry my own camera next time.

Ok, last one (until I find another one). This one was taken by Kaminsky Kandids, and I encourage you to check out his Facebook for the best cosplay photos from Wizard World Chicago I’ve found.

The Heroic and Skillfull

Armor of the Italian Renaissance

Filippo Negroli

Around 1525 a new fashion emerged in armour design, inspired by the forms and ornament of classical art. Embossed in high relief, richly gilt, and inlaid with gold and silver, these lavish parade armours are invariably associated with Filippo Negroli, the most innovative and celebrated of the renowned armourers of Milan. He and his family numbered among their patrons the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V and members of the French court. Featuring photographs of shields, helmets, breastplates and other items, this volume displays Filippo’s virtuoso skill at modelling in high relief. Individual commentaries draw on recent research to explain the Negroli armourers’ extraordinary technical abilities which, combined with their imaginative adaptation of antique motifs, resulted in an original art form that evokes the pomp and pageantry of the Renaissance courts.

I just signed up for my first leather-working class, and it’s Saturday morning. I may not be going to DragonCon, but damned if I won’t make my own panels to attend!

And in the end the costume contest was lost but we fought the good fight. Here’s me sweating in my costume as Carol from ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ movie made completely by me.
