So I’ve been thinking about AC3/AC: Rogue a lot lately, and it dawned on me last night: we’re going to get more Gideon Emery goodness in Rogue! Given the fact that he’s the Grandmaster in Europe, we’ll have to see at least a little more of him, right? Especially if Shay is going to work with Haytham during his sojourn around Europe to rescue Jenny.
I always find that after hanging out with people at cons, I get inspired to try new things (and not always gaming, anime, or cosplay related) Ever get overwhelmed by a desire to do like 6 things at once?
Here are a few projects niggling at the back of my mind…:
Art History/Evolution of Architecture animation set to Woodkid’s “Conquest of Spaces”
Get back to writing “Civil Disobedience”
Get back to writing “AC: Scion” fan project
Work on quilts for the Linus Project
Make my Halloween quilt
Redo my entire room— first gutting it and donating 80% of my stuff, then rebuilding
MOVE (preferably to Montreal, with a certain job waiting for me…)
As it is, I’m struggling with resume revamps and cover letters— I know I have the expertise, but not the experience, if that makes sense. Just gotta make sure that comes through…. Wish me luck. T__T
This is not my costume! I am posting this because I had a hand in making it, and I had the honor of getting some photos of the completed thing. This year at RMFC I took a real camera with me for the first time to a con. I’m super glad I did, because Qaw was there!! I made the mask and claws for this on commission. The mask was done on a modified base by Crystumes. I sculpted on her crow base to make a raven’s beak, and added faux fur, hand-set about eleventy billion feathers, and hand-set an equal number of boar bristles for the rictal bristles on the beak. I was so super excited to see it in action. It’s delightful to see something I worked on, hopping around!
Qaw stopped by my dealer’s table and attempted to steal the plush gryphon Shard owned by my table-mate Jess Owen (see second to last photo), then kindly allowed me to follow it around for a few impromptu photos! I didn’t have any hand in making the rest of the costume, including the really neat vest and pants. All photos are mine, except for the last one, when I bumped into Qaw while wearing Kinglet, and my husband was able to get a photo.
Since I’m on a roll to losing followers when I post Kenway stuff, have some more! :)
This is my Haytham Kenway costume made for Otakon this year. It more or less stayed together the entire weekend, which was good. I can see now that some of the buttons fell off for this pic, AH WELL.
I’m going to take a quick break from it for now, but I’m hoping to redo and reprise the costume for Katsucon (if I can afford to go). I’ll probably strip it to the base coat and then start over with those straps and cording and buttons. Oh the buttons. So many. So heavy. Wow.
Anyway, mostly posting this because I forgot to post update photos, and because I am SUPER PUMPED ABOUT HAYTHAM BEING IN AC: ROGUE, LIKE, HOLY SHIT.
