Progress #2 on Gambit

Well, I can happily post a nice progress report for Gambit. I should be completely done with this costume by mid June. Once that happens, you can expect a tutorial on how I put it together. Right now, here are 2 photos, edited a bit for effect.




As you can see, the staff still needs to be painted, I'm not wearing his headpiece, and certain fingers on the gloves need to be cut off. I'm still debating on what to do about the neck too, whether to take it easy with a bandanna or try to make a collar with craft foam. Finally, there's the question of if and what I should paint on the chest armor and knee pads.

A Taste of Things to Come

What can you expect from me in the near future?

  1. I'm working on tutorials on how to put together a Gambit costume and a Snake (from Metal Gear Solid 3) costume. I'm sure there will be other characters in the future.
  2. There will also be a lot of planning/advice/excitement about Dragon*Con, which has been the highlight of my year for three years in a row, and somehow keeps on getting better. Again, more cons could be in my future as I want to dress up more often and be around my kind of nerdy folk. Since I live in Georgia, I'm thinking AWA or Wizard World.
  3. And if I'm bored enough, I may give my opinion on some of this season's sci-fi shows and summer movies.

My First Time... Again

To those who already know me, you know I've had a LiveJournal since 2002. But that's for my personal life. I thought there should be another blog open for all of the internets to see. Most of this blog will focus on my geeky side, whether it's about games, sci-fi shows, costumes, or conventions.

To anyone who comes across this page, thank you for taking some time to glance over my words. I hope I can contribute something positive, and please feel free to leave me your comments, thoughts, and questions.
