    Costume contests explained!

    A few days ago I got a quite interesting request: 'Can you make a blog entry with some tips for anybody participating in a costume contest?' So yeah, I guess why not! Many of you surely watched or maybe even participated in a masquerade - and even won one of those!...

    My Story

    My Story

    One of the most frequent questions I get is how I turned my hobby into a business and if I planned everything from the beginning. Here is my full story.

    Symmetra – Commisioned by Blizzard, yeah!

    Symmetra – Commisioned by Blizzard, yeah!

    With this year's Gamescom one of my biggest dreams came true: A collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment! For over 10 years I've already brought countless characters from the Blizzard universe too life, from Druids, to Warriors and Paladins from World of Warcraft,...

    Shadowmourne – No time for farming!

    Shadowmourne – No time for farming!

    While making costumes is super fun, I especially enjoy building cool looking things in general. One of these "things" was actually the legendary axe "Shadowmourne" from World of Warcraft which always made me wonder how it would look in real life. Also it was just...

    I’M A WIZARD! (again)

    I’M A WIZARD! (again)

    The "Purple Wizard" was a reference I already had on my phone for several years. I've totally fallen love with it it the very first time I saw this stunning artwork when it was not even complete yet: When the artist himself, my hero Wei Wang, worked on it at the...

    Malthael – Sleep is overrated!

    Malthael – Sleep is overrated!

    There are many different reasons to create a costume. No matter if you like the character, have fallen in love with the design, while others like the challenge and sometimes the only reason is to look cool and have fun with all your friends in costume. Bringing the...

    Dark Valkyrie Diana – What a crazy week!

    Dark Valkyrie Diana – What a crazy week!

    One of my crazy summer projects in 2014 was Dark Valkyrie Diana from League of Legends. I'll admit, I barely played the game before and would not ever dare to call myself a true fan. But I much fell in love with the design of the character. Her vibrant color...

    The proud Norn Warrior!

    The proud Norn Warrior!

    One of my bigger projects in 2014 was a Norn Warrior from Guild Wars 2. As somebody who easily falls in love with stunning designs, the Norn was a character race I wanted to bring to life right after I discovered this amazing armor set. It not only had this very...

    Here comes the sexy Dovahkiin!

    Here comes the sexy Dovahkiin!

    When it's time to find a new project, one question pops out every single time: Can I transport it? After countless hours in Skyrim (killing mammoths collecting their snouts), The Elder Srolls Series was a long inspiration for a new costume and like many others I also...

    The Crusader – Time to go wild!

    The Crusader – Time to go wild!

    When it comes to the choice of a new costume it goes always down to the dimensions of my suitcase. It doesn't really matter how much I love a character, a TV show, a game or a comic - if my suitcase doesn't like it, then the final costume won't come with me and have...
