Awesome! Love Hellboy 2 (more than the first one actually). The Angel of Death is equally cool and creepy! Good luck! ^_^

Nice work so far, on a difficult costume. Your mask looks nice and lightweight. :)

Good work on the mask. It's looking freaky already and you haven't even hardly got started. Good luck on the rest. Keep it up.

Clever idea to use a scaffolders harness to hold the wing frame! I need to make some large wings myself at some point and was looking at the corset method. Good luck with the rest.

omg!! showcase! thankyou x

Quinzel posted on 9 April, 2011 - 19:58
Ooh, I saw pics of this a while back but had no idea who it was! This is actually amazing. I love del Toro's creatures (it's nice to know that someone can still get it right without CG!) and this looks like it actually could be pulled from the set of the movie :). Amazing work!

CrystalNeko posted on 9 April, 2011 - 20:54
What's this? I can't believe I haven't commented on this before!! THIS MUST BE FIXED! This is most definitely your best costume yet and definitely a well deserved showcase! You've got the proportions PERFECT and I have to say, it was rather terrifying standing right behind you in the masquerade as you were just so big! I love the details and this costume in general!

JakeX posted on 14 April, 2011 - 04:02
Im loving all of the cosplay the turn out is beautiful!!! I am very interested into how you made the wings and how you attached it to yourself, checking the journal and my god that was a great idea!!!

This is so jaw-dropping! love it x
