Series: Dragon Age II
Character: Marian Hawke (default female Hawke)
Version: Estate Finery (Act II)
Debuted At: New York Comicon 2011
Details: Again when NYCC came around, Sheila decided to drop by NY for the weekend. Fresh from SDCC and meeting up with Dragon Age fans, she decided to wear something easy to commute in and recognizable. Thus the Finery wear.
The top was made from an altered red sweater, with more red fabric added to the bottom to create the second layer of the tunic. The trim was painted pewter, gold added, and fixed to the tunic. The Hawke crest patch was made from craft foam and carefully painted before being attached to the tunic while the large Hawke crest on the back was hand painted on with pewter. The skirt was bought, and all of the stitch embroidery is actually hand painted fabric paint. The boots were also purchased. A belt buckled was made from sculpy and painted, before being Velcro-ed to an elastic belt.
Also for this costume, during NYCC I carried Basrath Kata; the sword of the Arishok. I made it completely from cut wood, sanded and finished with paint and wrapped with leather on the handle. It was presented to Bioware as a gift at the convention.
