The Tea-Drunk Tailor

I work in a museum about the military and spend my spare time on the back of a horse or dressing up like crusty old dudes.

This is predominately a costuming blog but also includes:

Jousting,

Dragon Age,

Emperor Maximilian I,

and Bizarre Historical Things

CCEE is getting so close! Here’s the roster for the weekend. If you see me around, definitely say hi! (Can’t wait to meet Tumblr peeps IRL…)
N.B. I’ll be looking pretty pissed off on Sat/Sun but I’m actually nice, swear to god!

May or may not have bought the Mass Effect games today because I may or may not be plotting a Mass Effect/Dragon Age crossover cosplay. Nothing’s set in stone since it depends on how long the summer projects take but you miiight be seeing a lot of EVA foam around here in the coming months.

Sadly, I’m a PS3 kid. BUT if you have Steam, I’m Palliser1645. (Invite’s open for all other Steam peeps too!)

coregeeknet said: I may or may not think that sounds pretty cool!

Ngl, I am hella stoked for this. I have no idea if people will get it but it will be a fun project nonetheless.

feralworks said: Can’t wait!

Me neither, friend!! I won’t have it done in time for D*Con but certainly Edmonton Expo, which tends to be a bit… Bioware-heavy (wonder why…).

andiblac said: Dude, you could have just had mine. Although.. they’re for Xbox… JUST GET STEAM ON YOUR COMPUTER.

Yeah, PS3… Also, you coming to CCEE this weekend?

‘Oh,’ Rowan said, finally looking at Loghain. She didn’t seem all that impressed. ‘I suppose I owe you an apology, then, ser.’ Her overt suspicion didn’t make it sound like much of an apology, but Loghain seemed more amused than offended.

‘It seems that you do,’ he said, offering his hand. ‘Loghain Mac Tir, at your service.’

‘Rowan Guerein.’ Her look remained dubious, probably since most men would have bowed and perhaps taken her fingers in the usual courtly fashion, even if Maric knew she didn’t care for it. She took Loghain’s hand, and he gave it a firm shake. She removed her hand from the contact a bit too eagerly, as if Loghain had some unsightly and possibly infectious skin condition that she was much too polite to comment on. ‘And I doubt I’ll be needing your service, ser.’

‘It’s a figure of speech, not a proposal.’

I love it how Rowan is braced for the usual courtly bullshit and is even more surprised/skeptical when he doesn’t lay it on. And how they’re both completely capable of schooling each other.

Had a work party for pedrosteckecilo's Varric cosplay last night. Had to do a Chest Test with the vest before we added the decorations. I think he's pretty legit!

(Guess this means I need to do Cassandra at one point…)

This is my first time making a large photoset post, so please be gentle. D:

Anyway! Turns out I’m occasionally a cosplayer too. This is THE MARQUIS based on Guy Davis' original graphic novel series of the same name. I’m a huge fan of his work and his inked comic works. So. Enamoured. <333

My only regret is that I’m not as tall or huge as Vol de Galle, the (anti)hero of this incredible fantasy period-horror story. But despite being small, I vow to get only the best poses that flatter the man’s shape and build at least, as evidenced by the last two images, lol.

  • De Galle’s twin devil-killin’ pistols and short sabre by my fabulous friend, InKibus
  • Cloak, vest, surcoat, and cravat by my fantastic roommate, teadrunktailor
  • Latex mask by my frabulous pal, Jesse Sinclair
  • Holsters by leatherholsters, aka some guy I found on Etsy
  • And crap, I totally forgot where I got my hat and gloves from

As for my own contribution… what can I say, I’m a patron of the arts. ;) Thanks again to teadrunktailor for the photos! :DDD (That was one coldass shoot… I forgot to take off my scarf coz it was a billion degrees below zero…)

YES!! This was a project from 2012, based on a wonderfully dark comic. Love how the shots turned out!

Hey blond dude on the treadmill. No sweat, buddy, I’m only checking you out because you look like Alistair.

Barely set foot in the door. “Someone has stolen the front off of one of the lights.”

"How do you - ?… Never mind. Let me get my tea and I will deal with it."

Some full-body pictures of Marcurio! Finally!

My friend Rachel was a sweetie and took these for me.

Dude, this looks really cool! Love the design of that costume. (Soooo many lovely browns….)

EVA Foam Armor Basics.

Found this awesome video on youtube today. I love to use EVA foam to make my own armor and he does a great job going over the basic techniques of working with the material.
