Information

Working on making a (what I feel) is a unique costume.

- The color and design template is from Joss Whedon's Astonishing X-men run.
Blue and yellow, with pointy claws, not blades that exit from the back of his hands, not between the knuckles.

- The belt will be more akin to 'Wolverine and the X-men': X-belt buckle, and utility belt with pockets.

- The mask ended up being a rubber cast one. mostly because of time issues, but I might end up making a fabric one later.


- My cosplay made it into the Sneaky Zebra video for May MCM :D

- I received mostly positive feedback at MCM, the only critique I got was regarding the jeans, so in July 2014 I finished an updated version, with new pants and boots, to get that classic look. new picture is uploaded from the local con I wore it to.
