Cosplay Project: Starcraft 2 Spectre (Spectreprops)

I've kept it a bit of a secret up till now but me an my bff are doing a cosplay collaboration.  The cosplay is of a Starcraft 2 unit, one of the coolest if not the coolest unit among the Terran arsenal, the Spectre.  The plan is pretty intensive and we were a bit more ambitious than we could realistically achieve for a  first time project so we've simplified some aspects of the project.  However, we are both extremely detail oriented so everything should be top-notch in terms of quality and realism. 

My bff is currently working on a key feature of the cosplay, the helmet.  He's making great progress on it and it's really starting to take shape right now.  The spectre design is pretty cool as most of the armor components integrate with each other, ie: the tubing connecting the helmet to the chest armor.  Progress can be seen at Spectreprops, be sure to follow his blog to receive email notification of updates. 

The Spectre armor incorporates lots of cool lighting elements so I'm excited to integrate these into the design as cool lighting makes everything infinitely better.  A few YouTube videos are below to get a better look at the Spectre itself:

And a full body shot showing the lighting that "courses" through the armor and clothing.  It should be fun.

Ridiculous Pug Video

Spent a bit of last Saturday out at a dog park with some friends as they wanted me to shoot some video of their dog doing "dog stuff" or should I instead say their pug doing "pug stuff."  Hopefully this video won't be the black sheep of my YouTube channel, we'll see--it's a bit ridiculous.

On another note, I want to try and move forward with my cosplay project so hopefully there will be some new posts about that coming up in the future.
