I love Merrill because she’s so damn nice but she’ll also shut people right down if they piss her off.

You glow when you’re angry. Stop lecturing me.

Humans have subjected my people to slavery, war, displacement, and cultural & literal genocide for thousands of years, often in the name of your religion. Even now, they keep sending missionaries into Dalish camps, and your templars still hunt us if we stay in one place too long. No offense, but I do not give a bitter flying fuck about your religious beliefs.

Have I mentioned you glow when you’re angry?

A Grey Warden took away one of our hunters to fight the darkspawn. I heard she fought the Archdemon. I wonder what’s become of her.

…I suppose the great Hero of Ferelden doesn’t need my help now.

Elf companion gathering, not so wise

Mini-Khamsin as Sigrun spam.  I know the last two were uploaded at various points over the weekend, but I want to be able to find them easier later on.  The lovely cafiffle is Merrill :)

And because people keep asking, I free-handed the tattoos with an angled brush and eyeshadow, dusted a darker eyeshadow over the larger blocks, and sealed with Ben Nye Finish Spray.  Trust me, if you saw me on Saturday, you know I was sweating buckets and not a single bit of this smudged or came off before I wanted it to (I was admittedly careful/paranoid though, but it lasted almost 12 hours).

teddiliza took the last pic in our hotel bathroom after the morning shoot and I really don’t remember who I got to take the first one with my phone.

I haven’t posted progress in a million years. The chain suit is finished. All I have left is finishing the leather and casting the elf ears.

You did Merrill’s full-body chain?! It looks amazing, how did you do it? It must have taken SO much time and work! Err, I should ask, is it ok to reblog this? I just wanted my followers to see it.

Thanks:D Rebloging is fine. Your followers can also see my bathroom:D

It’s taken about 2 years. There are 20,000 aluminum rings (I think it was 16 gauge but I don’t remember.) The instructions for making the sleeves and making it fitted come from here http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor.barker/farisles/guilds/armour/mail.htm I also used the pants pattern from the Armor Archive. http://www.armourarchive.org/essays/book__practical_chainmail/practical_chainmail.shtml

I am reblogging this version too so my followers can see it and spread it like wild fire, this took two years of sticking to it and pure dedication

I have literally never seen something more badass, I’m like in cosplay tears over it and I remember you starting this forever ago and I remember liking it back then too. It is amazing to see and I hope I get to see pictures of the final product.

Seriously well done. Oh my frick.
