Dragon Age II Anders Costume Enhanced with Photo Edits
When people discuss sci-fi and fantasy films, they seem to put a lot of emphasis on which effects are practical and which are digital. The same discussion can be applied to cosplay. As with movies and television, I think the best effects are often achieved by combining practical and digital. In some cases though, digital triumphs, and that’s the case with these incredible photos of Michael’s Dragon Age II Anders costume by Milligan Photo, a.k.a. Vick.
The costume is well-crafted and closely matches what Anders wears in the video game. It helps that Michael looks similar to Anders, too. Vick enhanced the costume by creating images that have a painterly feel to them — they look like they’re from the game. She also added glowing touches that would be difficult to achieve practically. Well, the glowing skin and eyes would be tricky; you could manage the rest with EL wire or LEDs.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
