Elf Costume by Valimaa Elf Costume by Valimaa
Ok...This is my elf costume for hot days...or mornings...or when I just dont want to carry a big hat XD

-I managed to get my chainmail/gambeson almost done (I still need some decoration and fancy bits)...Its made of red velvet with multible layers of wool-padding and..well chainmail quilted into it ^^
-I made a cape-thingie(or...more correctly...I got very much help from one of my friends whos a seemstress while making a cape-thingie ^^)...any and all similarities with a certain Vincent fellow are purely coincidental...ish :P

-This picture is taken in the morning...never mind me...I was very tired XD

aaaand...if you're thinking; "is it just me or does he really have a pink edging on that cape-thingie" ...then yes...I do -.-
-It was raining cats 'n' dogs...and a whole lotta water too...and apparently the wool wasnt prewashed so it bled colour like hell...yay! XD

It is alright looking with the pink :)

Careful with the cats and dogs though, they hurt :p

Not so flashy? It is wonderful. Walking down
even the sidewalks of NYC you would get more then
one person staring at you :)

Being inspired by something else doesn't mean anything now a days :)
inspiration can come for 50 different places, but we can't name them all.

I meant more like not so flashy compared to the whole white armour thing XD
-Im pretty sure that walking around in the "real world" would indeed earn me some glances ^,^'

-I just think that credit should be given where credit is due...so if I acutally know where an idea or the like came from...I should just say so...its free :D
-obviously I cant keep track of everything inspiring I ever saw either...as you say, it comes from a load of very different places ^^

:) Gotcha. You are correct, this would blend in
more so then the white armor :)

It is good you did mention it. But as my first
comment, there is just so much wonderful things
going on I originally would not have though Vicente.
As much as I am a fan of him.

I could see the Vincent similarities, but only after you said something :)
