Joachim Armster

Castlevania: Lament of Innocence



this costume was pulled out of thin air in less than 2 weeks. and while that may be great bragging points, i would not reccomend the stress that brings! i pierced my ears specifically for this costume(not fun either). i also made his earrings and belly chain myself.

the filigre pattern you see on the shirt, sleeves, and bottom of the jacket, is all hand-done. it was made by taking about 4 different stamps, and creating an intricate pattern, then going over it with sharpie marker to darken the outlines. watering down some ink and placing a light stamp over the pattern gave it depth and shadow. this alone took 2 days to do.
the chest piece and boot covers are made out of fun foam, couch vinyl, and floor vinyl parts. the armoured boot caps are aluminum metal, so i clanked when i walked X-). theyre not 100%, but i'm more than happy with the way they turned out. :)

a very big thank you to my friends who helped with this costume, so that it would be done on time. Syd (username: atldirtypunk) and her boyfriend did an amazing job on the chest piece and the rest of the costume itself, so thank youuuuu!! :)

*edit* holy fizoli, a showcase!? that's awsome! thanks everybody. :D
