Late last year my brother and I attended a cosplay convention in Columbus, Ohio. While I got some awesome pictures of everyone else I unfortunately didn't take the time to photograph my brother.
...and I've heard about it ever since.
I did take some quick snapshots when we got home at around 1:00am. In an effort to shut him up I tried my best to turn said snapshots into something nicer. As a photographer I've determined this to be an EPIC FAIL. However, as an exhausted sister I say they are fantastic.
I would also like to draw your attention to this absolutely fantastical sword.Ok. It's not as impressive as some but it was originally an axe handle.
Yeah an AXE HANDLE. Just like this one...
The medallion was the most difficult part. I took a photo or a sketch (..???) that I found on the internet to use as a model and then redrew it on the computer. The final template is below. Feel free to use it or post it elsewhere (with a link back please). I'm hoping someone else may find it useful.
On a side note...if anyone happens to see said photo/sketch please let me know in the comments. I remember it being extremely helpful and would like to leave a link to it.
All in all not too shabby for having about a week to prepare.
