This is a fairly good photo of the most recent version of my Nerghul costume/character, the Fantasy/Medieval wielder of the Daemon Cleaver
.In his hands, the latter is an actual Daemon Cleaver - a Cleaver used by Daemons, not a Cleaver to hack appart Daemons
Anyways. As mentioned in this
journal, I'd like the help of anyone reading this and/or looking at this photo.
Because, I find the costume somewhat lacking. Even with bits dangling from the belt running under the cuirass, it's...I don't know.
It's not that I don't like it, not at all, but it doesn't evoke the feel I want it to evoke. Which, for the record, is right about this
. Or this
. The notion of me bulking up in the gym nonwithstanding (
), I've got to figure out something else...
As I said, I hope there will be good ideas from you folks
Feel free to suggest with words, with pictures, whatever you fancy
If you're feeling particularly artistic, you could even draw on it or draw entirely new 'concept art'
While doing so, keep the following ideas I already have or have rejected in mind, please:
- Taller boots or more specifically, boots with thicker soles.
<li>A fur 'cloak' of sorts. More or less rejected; would cover up too much armor, atleast with the first test-run I did.
<li>Darkening the armor with, say, black ink.
<li>Adding (even more) pieces of armor. I'm scared to try this, truth to be told
<li>Replacing the helmet with something better.
Also, one thing to keep in mind: I didn't create the armor, it's a set I bought from Norton Armouries
, so it's pretty much as-is. Although they do custom work and custom finishes on their production pieces, they're hard to contact at the moment, so for now, it's unlikely I'll get more armor.
