DOGS ARE SUCH GLORIOUS CREATURES.
I love dogs so much oh my god
So finally, here it is the giant WIP post with finished photos!!
Picture 1: Horns - Foam covered in worbla. Jason used a hard hat forehead strap to attach the horns. The second set of small smaller horns has been added and the placement of the larger horns has been slightly adjusted. The giant bands around the big horns has been placed, but all they need now is some paint. We plan on blending his forehead with the horns better with a forehead prosthetic and some foam pieces.
Picture 2: Kidney belt and front flap - Made from leather. The front panel is oil tan, the front piece of the “kidney belt” is 5 oz veg tan, and the back is pig skin. The frankensteined paper pieces of paper are my patterns for the kidney belt and the battle skirt. I decided on side seams rather than a back seam for the kidney belt because, like Tallis, the back is made out of a softer leather, so it isn’t extremely painful to wear. It actually worked out really well.
Picture 3: I was going to use four types of leather, but I changed my mind and have decided to make the battle skirt out of the pig skin rather than the heavy suede because I can tool it and add the gold “trim” with paint. I cut up the bottom and added some distressing to make it look battle worn.
Picture 4: Elbow pieces - We decided to make them out of worbla rather than leather. Jason did all the work with the foam, worbla, and shaping. I finished the painting.
Picture 5: These are also worbla. Jason added the “stitching” detail to the shoulders by using small strips of worbla. I painted them to try to make them look like leather, as much as I could.
Picture 6: Jason has traced out the weapons onto wood.
Picture 7: The waist sash
Picture 8: The gloves I bought on ebay, but I took them in and added the leather bands to the top and bottom. I used the same pig leather I used for the skirt and stitched them to the gloves.
We ended up finishing this costume at 1 am before the shoot, but I am glad we did. We have a few things I would like to touch up before MegaCon, but I am so happy with these photos. There should be more coming soon, but I couldn’t wait to share these. Check out our facebook page for more Arishok and some of my Tallis.
You wanted it, you got it!
You Cannot Rest Here
Have you ever played a video game where you have to sleep to recover? They only let you do it if everything is safe. Otherwise they won’t let you sleep. You’ll get a message, saying “You cannot sleep now, there are monsters nearby.”
Now, remember the last time you just couldn’t get to sleep?

On Concerns Regarding DAI Romances
I’ve been rather heads-down at work as of late, so I’ll admit to not being quite abreast of discussions in the fandom as I sometimes am (even though, at the best of times, I generally only get wind of such things well after they’ve occurred).
So after the excited burbling following the trailer release and subsequent announcements, it was a bit of a surprise to hear of concerns regarding Inquisition’s romance system. I didn’t think we’d actually broached the topic yet, but some comments were made in a recent interview that have been subject to speculation and some alarm. Naturally it’s not something everyone’s interested in for Inquisition, but some people are very interested and also invested in what we’re going to do.
I don’t normally do this, but since I answered a couple of questions on the BioWare forums on the subject—and have had it pointed out to me numerous times that the Tumblr crowd is not always privy to the goings-on of our forums—I’ll repost my answers here. Until we can discuss the matter at length (which will eventually come, even if it feels like it will be never be soon enough), it’s really the most I can do. If you have other questions, feel free to message me…just understand that my blog is not really intended as an “Inquisition information center”, and the questions I can answer regarding things which haven’t yet been revealed is very limited.
I hope it helps, and look forward to the whirlwind of information and speculation (as well as excitement, on our part as well as yours) to come over the next, oh, six months or so.
