More throwback thursday stuff, yay!
It'll be a short entry this week because I've only worn him a couple of times, but I wanted to show off my sexy shirtless wolf boy, Volug from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.
I think we all know by this point how I judge my FE characters based on attractiveness so when this man walked out of the desert I immediately wanted to cosplay him. Sadly he turns out to be somewhat lackluster of a battle unit but frankly I don't care.
Another motivating factor for making this character is that I hadn't seen anyone do it, and I knew there would be a Nailah (the other wolf character from Radiant Dawn) and a Micaiah at one of the cons I was going to, so I jumped at the chance.
We did these at Colossalcon, which meant we had a wonderful backdrop for the characters, and the best part was we did an actual photoshoot with Larry Hullum Jr. who got some beautiful shots of us. I'd never done a private shoot with a legit photographer before so I was super excited to have really nice photos of my cosplay.
My favorite shot from the set actually didn't show off my cosplay at all, but I think you'll all agree that it's super cool.
At some point I'd love to wear him again, but there are so many cosplays I have and enjoy wearing, and there are't many RD folks around to cosplay with (and I can only wear him in the summer, for obvious reasons), and having someone paint on my tattoos is a big pain in the butt, so he's going to be hard to get back into circulation. Nevertheless, I do love this cosplay and will definitely bust it out again some time in the future.
