Prop Sword Progressing as well

I've also picked up working on the Prop swords as well. I'll work on this and the Gunblade in parallel since they are all at about the same stage.

Hyperion Gunblade Back on Track

Now that Anime Expo and Blizzcon have come and gone, I'm going to be able to return again to finishing up the Hyperion Gunblade prop videos. The video I'm currently shooting focuses on the priming and sanding of the prop.

The new video should be up in a week or two.

Amazon's Pathfinder Failure

I pre-ordered Paizo's Pathfinder RPG from Amazon. Amazon shipped this 5+ pound book in a cardboard wrap around mailer, rather than a box. UPS dropped the package at least two times (opposite corners are dented) and this shipping method does nothing to protect such a heavy book. So I recieved my copy of the Pathfinder RPG in damaged condtion.

I contacted Amazon and they immediatly shipped me a new copy. Sadly, Amazon learns nothing from the past experience and ships it the same way. The replacement book arrives, damaged in the same way.

I contacted Amazon, they can't ship it any other way, so they send me a refund...

I still want the book, so I've ordered it from an Amazon "partner", a bookstore that offered it at the same price as Amazon. Hopefully this one will arrive intact.

I found this very nice shot of my costume on stage at Blizzcon 2009. Not sure who took the picture, but its a great shot.

Real Life Concept Art

I met this young woman at Blizzcon 2009. She was dressed as the counterpart to my costume in the concept art. We were able to mimic the pose from the art, I just wish we could have found a better background to shoot against. :)

Blood Elf at Blizzcon 2009

I found this great picture of me in my Blood Elf costume from Blizzcon 2009.

This picture is based off the early concept art from Blizzard back when Burning Crusade was first announced. I had to drop a few details in order to have it ready in time.

Cosplaying at Blizzcon 2009 was a blast.
