I am seriously sorry you guys, I was certain I had posted about Blizzcon and our final costumes here, but apparently not! It was an insanely busy weekend and it passed by too quickly, as most conventions do.

Auriel turned out beautifully, it is easily one of my most favorite costumes in terms of aesthetics. It wasn’t exactly fun to wear (the wings were supported by a harness that made them feel like a super heavy backpack on my shoulders, and I’m not known for my strength) but I loved the reaction from it.

Mario’s costume also turned out beautifully, exactly as we imagined it. For more photos, check out our Facebook page!
We’re also in this amazing video by MLZ and OTL studios! We’ve shot videos with them before, and they are always so amazing to work with and know exactly what needs to be done to showcase the costumes.
Over all, the convention was amazing, we met so many people (we also hosted a cosplay dinner the night before the con) and made a lot of friends! Honestly, Blizzcon is less about seeing the convention and more about cosplay for us. We enjoyed walking around the con on the second day out of costume, but we aren’t the type to try to watch too many panels! Though, there was one on cosplay, which was very informative and helpful. You can see that one below, too! (It’s over an hour long, fair warning!)
Thanks for reading, everyone, and I’m working on some in progress and finished commission posts to be up in the next week or so!
We’ve been incredibly busy getting ready for Blizzcon, which we will be leaving for on November 6th.
These are the costumes we’ve been working on, since Fel Reaver has to be scrapped because of size requirements for the con. Below are some progress photos, and if you want to keep up to date with our progress, check out our Facebook page!
We did a test on how much room we’d have left in the car! This is with the two largest items in there!
Sorry that they’re a bit out of order. I probably won’t have time to do another update until after the con, but as I said, we post progress photos on our Facebook almost daily!
If you want to know how we made the Jayce from League of Legends costume, then read up!

For the coat portion, I used McCall’s M6143 as a base. I used the Uncle Sam coat, and left off the lapels since the coat was under the chest piece. I also lengthened the tails and made them a slightly different shape to fit what we were looking for. Continue reading →
At Anime Expo 2013 in Los Angeles, California, Mario and I debuted several costumes- Queen Ashe from League of Legends, and Raphael and Cassandra from the Soul Calibur series.
We had a lot of fun with our friends who were in the Soul Calibur group with us- Tonksceratops cosplay, above, made a beautiful Viola (2p version). Her husband Tony Hsu took all of the photos marked hsutography!
Wearing Jayce and Queen Ashe was a ton of fun! Super hot, though. That’s what we get for wearing them in July in Southern California, I guess!

We have a TON more photos on our Facebook page in the albums, so make sure to check those out! Write ups on those costumes to come soon!
Just in case you’re living under a rock (or just haven’t been on the internet lately), Blizzcon 2013 dates were announced today! It will be at the Anaheim Convention Center on November 8-9. This year, Mario and I will once again be making costumes!
My plan is Auriel, angel of Hope, and Mario is still hoping to truck along with Fel Reaver! More updates on those when we get them going.
In other news, we have been crazy busy with school and costumes for Emerald City Comic Con, March 1-3. We don’t have much longer to work on them, so we’ve been working on them constantly! Mario is working on Jayce, from League of Legends:
While I am working on Cassandra, from Soul Calibur IV.
We have been uploading countless photos onto our Facebook page of our progress (if you don’t like it yet, the like button is on the right side of the page!) but here are a few photos for the blog!
That’s all for now, we’re sorry for being terrible with our podcast schedule but these costumes are pretty demanding lately. We hope to have a new episode up after the con!
