A taste of things to come... by thesearestrangedays A taste of things to come... by thesearestrangedays
My latest and greatest to date. Based on a card from Magic: The Gathering, the character's name is Sorin Markov. Enjoy.

I love it! If you don't mind me asking, what contacts did you use? I'm currently working on my Sorin cosplay as well (of course, it's nowhere near as good as yours) and I didn't know if I should go with yellow or gold.

The setting and lighting really help set the tone of this - fantastic work. Excellent job not only dressing but really pushing the feeling of Sorin that some of the MtG artwork pushes!

How did you do the armor pieces?
And May I ask for the pictures (preferably High Def) so that i can try my own hand at this?

:D Great cosplay

I used aluminium, with some pretty specialized tools an armourer friend of mine has. I'm afraid The pictures you see are as high def as I have. You could try searching the art form MTG.

Thank you!

Holy shit this is awesome! <3 Even though the editing of the photo makes it look quite unreal, movie-like.. But maybe it's a good thing in this case. I'd like to see the original anyhow, if possible.
I've planned to cosplay Sorin too, but this might be hard to beat. Just wonderful!

That was the intent. I should hope it's hard to beat. I'd like to hope I set the bar high. After all, I was the first one that I know of.

I haven't heard either that anyone would have even tried to cosplay Sorin. Yeap, dude, you got yourself totally high... Eh, well, or at least the bar.

In any case, I'd bet you play Magic by other ways too, than just cosplaying? Via internet and/or by cards or however.

:iconthesearestrangedays:
thesearestrangedays Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Quite right. Though I don't get to play as often as I would like.

Cadavreck Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Hm I think I've got that somehow upside down when compared on that, for the case I get to cosplay way too rarely and play Magic by cards (not via internet, though there are cards too) almost every day, hahah. :) Anyhow, it's always nice to notice new Magic players around!
Hm btw, funny thing that Sorin, and that way also this photo, are becoming quite topical (again) on nowadays, when Dark Ascension comes out on February. I wonder what kind of the new Sorin Markov will be... ;)

Well I'm not sure if I'm "new", I cam back to the game on the tail end of Kamigawa as Ravnica was coming out. I started playing during Ice age.

Actually I ment new for me. :D But well you're right, it seems that "new" is really not the best word to describe your situation as a player, more it seems like that you're quite a damn old-school player. But yeah, haha, those were the days...
