|"Going to eat me?...Didn't think so..."|
Ok, so after I debuted my Splintmail costume at Amecon I've been told I'm not allowed to cosplay anyone except Alistair (not sure whether to take that as a complement or insult). In light of this, I've decided to attempt Alistair's costume as worn in the 'Silent Grove' graphic novel.
I'm both looking forward to this and dreading it: Splintmail Ali was a heavy task, but it mainly used skills I already had and didn't really push me out of my comfort zone. However Silent Grove Ali's look is more armored clothing than an actual suit of armor, so I'm going to need to try and remember my secondary school textile classes and practice my RAF-earned sewing techniques...
