For the next little while, I'll be tweaking these two costumes, but I'll be spending more time on one than the other.The Sarah Kerrigan costume
was created last year for the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo (2013) for the Fantasy Warriors booth with DMacStudios ( jagged-eye
). I wasn't able to finish the jumpsuit (it's still sleeveless) and on top of that, I explode coffee all over it right before the Expo! Luckily, most of it came out - yay for washable athletic wear materials.
The jumpsuit is lit up with LEDs running light through 0.5cm optic fibre cables. The lights can run in different patterns too!
I cheated and just bought those light up shoelaces from the dollar shoes and just extended the "laces" with the optic fibre.
The gun was where all the hard work was concentrated. Using a toy gun from the dollar store, we (Yeats of Yeats Magic Co. and I) extended the gun out with aluminum pieces, adding a longer barrel, external speaker, laser pointer, and a LED that lights up when the gun is triggered.
I plan on adding sleeves this time around and addressable LEDs along the jumpsuit that lights up the same way as it does in SC2, powered by the Synthesia Nexus.The Dragon Sorceress
is actually the Dragon Queen that I help create with local fashion designer Javeda, Yeats of Yeats Magic Co., and Jeremie of EZ-Robot.
The dress is lit up with a few LEDs powered by a Synthesia Nexus to flow up the sleeve and across the collar. The dragon is the biggest feature of this cosplay. Powered by a EZ-Robot control board, the head of the dragon moves via a mobile app connected by WiFi. It surveys, sniffs, and roars.
I plan on extending the body of the dragon some more and adding a few more details to make it look less like an aluminum snake and more like an Asian Dragon. I'd like to add some more sounds as well, but I need to spend the most of the time on making the head dress So those are the choices for this year!
Which would you like to see at the upcoming Expo?
