Hey everyone, time to ring in the New Year! And I’ll be doing it by telling you about Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, or, the game that might turn me around on this whole franchise. This first-thoughts-review was supposed to go up yesterday, but I of course got hung up researching Minoan and Mycenaean frescoes and well, you know how it is. But anyway, let’s talk about the game! No spoilers either!
This week's winner is Thundersong who created this beautiful piece...
In order to turn you into a hero for your prize, please answer the following questions:
Gender? Favourite Colour? Second favourite colour? Favourite superhero? Least favourite superhero? Anything else I should know?
Your prize will be posted to the blog later this week.
Hey everyone! I was going to do an opinion/editorial-type post about Disney live-action remakes, but then I decided I didn't want to do something possibly quite negative right before Christmas. So instead I was just going to talk about some fun new cosplays that I'm working on/planning. Also hoping to show some of these off next year somewhere, although we don't have anything planned as of yet. So here we go!
My take on Godai...
Congrats again on the win.
Runner-up this week goes to Thundersong for the stunning Oiran. Great costume work and background.
And the win this week goes out to...
Taking a seasonal break from heroes and villains, your 2 week design challenge is to create a rendering using HM3 based on a piece of music associated with the holiday season.
Feel like tackling the nativity in Silent Night? A certain red nosed reindeer? The melancholy of Auld Lang Syne? A rousing dreidel game? Now’s your chance.
The winner will be announced on New Year’s Eve, and that winner will receive a one of a kind custom made hero…or villain…of themselves…designed by me.
