This weekend, The Brain, which you recall used to occupy itself writing porny fanfic, decided I should do a really serious Warlock cosplay. When it was still all my brain would think about Tuesday, I decided to embrace the insanity.

(The truth comes out! you think. That is what she's really doing back here in journal land. Possibly. It's nice to have something interesting to post about. Also, if I do this thing, I am doing it fandom-right. There will be pictures and detailed write-ups, both here and on Tumblr, and I think I will even branch out into video for this.)

Now, I would really like to do the Iron Banner gear. But as you can see from the below, there's some serious detail work there.

Iron Breed Vestments
These are the Iron Breed Vestments. I loved them. Now the game has left them behind. Sadness.

Aside from that, my favorite armor in the game thus far was Apex Harmonic. This link has excellent illustrations. As you can see, it was sleek and fairly understated. I have decided that is the place to start.

I have begun my research. 

I found a pattern at Burda that should be the perfect foundation to build the design off.   It should make an excellent bodice.

That is the first piece of the project - getting the vestments right.  Once I get that, I can move on to other challenges, like gauntlets and boots and replica weapons.  Also, I have to decide if I'm going to do a helmet or not.  I figure I can take it slow and maybe have the entire thing ready for Halloween.

UPDATE: Excellent! I see Iron Breed is just the Iron Banner version of Apex Harmonic! I had not realized that. So, if I can get the Apex Harmonic to work, all I would have to do to get Iron Breed is make it again, with the Iron Banner markings. Very pleased.
