First off: I’m a girl in there! It’s hard to tell, but I promise I am!
Here’s the newest set of photos of my Warhammer 40k tech-priest cosplay! These are all from Youmacon 2013. I’ve added a bunch of new things to this version. The backpack in new, the robe is new, a bunch of new electronics including a flickering blue power source in my pack, tons more purity seals, and some major updates to my servoskull, Toby.
This costume has won 6 awards: Judge’s Choice (Animarathon 2013), Hall Cosplay Award (Ohayocon 2013), Best In Show (A&G Ohio 2013), 2nd place in Sci-Fi Division (Origins Game Far 2013), Best in Show (Packrat Comic’s Not at Comic Con Comic Con), and Best Master Class (Midoricon 2013). And at Origins, I recieved a standing ovation from the Games Workshop booth. At Youmacon, I ended up meeting a couple who used me as the inspiration for their tech-priest. It was such a huge honor!
Next appearance is probably Ohayocon 2013 on Saturday. There might be something between here and there, but that’s the next planned one. If you’d like to see me, let me know!
The other tech-priest you see in a few pics is a guy I met at the con who used all the photos of me as inspiration for his costume. It was a pretty cool honor to run around with him most of the day on Saturday!
I NEED TO MAKE THIS… SOOO BAD!
Still a massive work in progress, Skull Taker on a Blood Throne (started out as a Blood Chariot, got shelved, rules changed, taken down and continued as a Blood Throne, yes I am slow) Lots of Green Stuff left to do, but I think I am liking the pose so far. Going to try for an organic look for the front of the chariot / throne. Will try to sculpt a bottom jaw with huge fangs making up the front of the chariot covering the elf parts I used to build the basic shape. Still more to do.
Thank God for 40K and the Dark Eldar…
The Dark Eldar are pretty much… Kinky Space Ninja Elves who are into BONDAGE… My friend Chris plays them on table top… The pervert. XD
