Slowly but surely…
Fat/dwarf bulk up suit is complete, facial hair is done. Tunic, leather gauntlets and belt are done! Working on casting the 70+ scales for the pauldrons. Then dying pants and making the boots. I’ll have one of his throwing axes done I think, to accompany my battle axe. Gotta go borrow a friend’s table saw for that.
Gotta do a brow prosthetic run through here soon. I’m hoping to do a Gimli/Legolas photoshoot done right before Dragon*con, like I did with Skyrim last year. We shall see!
Your definition of “slowly” must be different than mine. :)
It would be like Agents of SHIELD but Doctor Who!!!

For anyone who has yet to watch Xena, may we present this?

I have seen him on Xena, but apparently not this ep. A costume for next year?
before and afters are my favorite.

I just learned that Karl Urban will be at Wizard World Chicago in about a month, and I think that’s as good a reason as any to kick this project into high-gear. Éomer Costume checklist to complete in the next 34 days:
The mistake people make when they talk about not being able to trust Wikipedia is in the implicit assumption that we could trust encyclopedias as infallible sources before Wikipedia.
I like Wikipedia because I know it could be wrong. Regular encyclopedias can be wrong, too, but my guard was never up in the same way with them as it is with Wikipedia. I like Internet media specifically for the reason that Aaron Sorkin doesn’t like it: because it makes it that much more difficult for me to have any illusions about the fact that the burden of critical thought is on me.
I don’t automatically trust bloggers because a group of people I’ve never met decided to give them a badge that says “reporter” on it. I don’t turn off my critical thinking because they’ve gotten to be some sort of “professional”. I have to judge them on the merits of their writing and history of thoughtfulness or thoughtlessness alone. That is a feature, not a bug, because we should never trust any news media outlet implicitly.
