Senny here! Thought I'd post an update of what we've been up to lately....
We both attended ConnectiCon recently, which was awesome as always. Silhouette went as Loki all three days, no surprises there, and was immensely well-recieved. I accompanied her as my debut Tony Stark on Friday, and then as Merlin on Saturday and Sunday. Even met a couple of other Merlin cosplayers, surprisingly. Silhouette entered Loki into the craftsmanship contest, and received a judge's choice award for her cosplay!
Silhouette has once again begun the Loki patterning process, this time for his prison vest from The Dark World. As for me, I've been tweaking and improving Merlin. I've also begun what will probably be a long-term project - Sabriel from Garth Nix's Old Kingdom series (which is a seriously awesome read, go do it). That will involve much scale maille and embroidering of keys, so yeah, gonna be awhile with that one. But I'm really enthused about it.
Also in the works - well, planning stage at this point - is an Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplay group, Fire Nation style. Silhouette will be Zuko, with yours truly as Aang, and other friends as Sokka, Toph, and Suki. Should be amusing.
