Sigmund - En Guarde by AmenoKitarou Sigmund - En Guarde by AmenoKitarou
"Be gone."

Infinite Undiscovery, Sigmund
IT IS FINALLY FINISHED~~!!!
I wore this as an entry to the Gold Coast prelimary round of the Madman National Championships, and placed 3rd place :D

I will have a video of my COMPLETELY irrelevant skit uploaded very soon.

Costume made and Worn:

Photography and touch up:
:icone3studios:


Costume details:
Armour: a combination of plastic, fibreglass and foam strips. See for details.

Coat: I patterned the thing out of a matrix coat pattern :iconhurrplz: because those patterns usually have EPIC flair. The orange part is satin lycra and the black is just pleather. Details on the collar and hems were hand painted.

Leatherwork: All belt were hand hand and rivetted. His front patch and butt patch were hand stitched with wax thread. (you can't really see it in this shot though...)

Sword: Thin MDF. Runes were craved by a table router, then the edge was hand sanded. All bevelled details were made from foam strips. The paint job was done in 5 steps: black coat, silver dry brush, white dry brush, silver blending, then varnish.

If you want to know more, feel free to leave me a comment :) :) :)

Enjoy! :iconhappyblueplz:

This is incredible and I LOVE how thorough you are in your descriptions! Your use of emoticons, and the terms 'EPIC flair' and especially 'butt patch' make me feel like you are definitely someone I want to follow. HAHA Can't wait to lurk your gallery extensively and see what you make in the future as well!

Haha thank you very much.
I'm not too active on deviantart these days because I only like to upload the best photos of the batch onto here.

Awesome job! Your Madman skit for this cosplay was hilarious, I'm going to have to find a recording of it and have it on repeat while making cosplay XD

What material would you recommend for armor that is quite durable/ able to roll around in as well as general shennangins?
