I am aware of course, that this photo has been used in one of my posts in this blog. But I've found the larger photo! And would like to thank the awesome photographer sir Jio Verona. It would probably one of the last times I'd ever have the opportunity to work with a team like that. Well, at least I had the chance! And I won't forget it.
Saber Alter or "Dark Saber" is basically "King Arthur" that has been summoned as a hero by someone with a rather dark and sad past. The series revolves around a Holy Grail war, with epic heroes being called forth by "masters" through a ritual. More of this in the "Fate Stay franchise". Saber Alter though, does not appear in any of the series and only appears in the game "Heaven's Feel".
On with the show:
Yep, a rather noobish effort at a photograph. But hey~ we were in a convention. Also note that my armor is on backwards. *rofl* The adrenaline was just too much and I just wore it like a sir and pranced around.
Most people prolly didn't even give shit. But yes, I wore the chin guard and a mask aside from wearing those yellow contact lenses. Why? Because that's how cosplaying should be. I also put red marks all over my face, which is unfortunately not seen here. Also, honestly I'm OC about how cloth falls, folds and holds. See that weird Lady Gaga sleeve? That was one of those "eureka-oh-my-gad" moments, I seriously loved how easy I made that.
A first for everything
Yep, I look like a guy in this shot. And why is that? Because of my bangs. I know, entirely my fault. But then for people who do not know me, at the least pick on me without me seeing it. I was depressed over this for a while. But now I look at it. That girl had a point. besides I didn't color my brows and that was fatal.
This would be my last fully hand sewn creation. My Aizen-sama had mercy on me because I was tackling on Queen Esther and thus bought me a sewing machine. Though it's a tiny one, I'm seriously addicted to the sound it makes. (Ka-cha-ka-cha-ka-cha... *_*) *cough* Although these aren't all the pictures, I had fun and it was interesting to be a bad ass version of a classic and well loved character. I hope I did her justice.
A lesson learned
I'm that person under rocks and in caves. I am not very good with dealing with people so I limit myself to what I can handle. Which is usually online contact. I learned here, that other than people being too complicated for my tastes... most people think the internet is something where you can change who you are and be a villain to everyone because of anonymity. At the end of the day, it's still YOU who's being an idiot. And am not going to be part of that. Less affected, more happy~ Right? XD
Saber Alter: Study
Still working on Saber Alter.
In all honesty, I don't feel as excited as when I actually make all of the costume by myself. There's a sense of pride when all the details in the costume you wear is by your hands.
But that aside, it was interesting to actually get a hold of a new craft.
Don't mind the sketch though, that's just for the laughs.
Am really hoping it all falls into place at the end, everyone's working so hard. Specially our Leader.
I don't know how he does it, but he just does.
Though irony of it, is the fact that he's a med student but does not seem to value his health very much
Oh, yeah, if you've ever heard of Team MARCH am a member of it. A very irresponsible member at that. *rofl*
