costume and self portrait

I do a bit of historical fencing so I decided to design a padded fencing doublet for myself to use during practice.

The top kinda reminds me of Tatopolous's design for the Dracula armor in Bram Stoker's Dracula or the outfits in The Cell. Very form fitting an muscle accentuating. Kinda scary. He looks like the kind of guy who would throw dirt in your face during a "fair" fencinging match.

Awesome work.

My dream of seeing you in red stockings has now been fulfilled, thank-you-sir.

Matthew Scheuerman said...

Damn, I don't know if you're serious about the fencing, but that's a really cool design. Did a good job of making it not look...sissy looking? haha I dunno. We'll have to duel sometime...I used to do english broadsword. EnGarde!

Hahahaha, awwesome :)... so you!

you should make the color in a 18's century oil Paint style, very dark and light like George Delatour or Joseph Wright of Derby and others netherland art style from this particular century :)...

Did you bought the costume for real in the end BTW ?

Hao Wu said...

lol a lighter skin version of carlo he looks more evil, the type of guy who lures his opponents in and attack with voracity

Dilanka S said...

Speaking to some tailors about trying to sort out some form of WMA/Historical fencing clobber right now. Mind if I send them to this?
