Conventions, side projects, and more!

January 2, 2014 / by Samantha

(if you are just wondering about conventions, scroll down)

I finally found my inspiration again!

I really like simulations. Especially fluids! And I also really enjoy rigging.

So, my two side projects so far have been these:


A T-Virus model and simulation:

and a modeled and rigged pocket watch:

I have a video demo of me talking through my plans with the model and simulation. And now I also have some rough renders of the animation.



and for the pocket watch, I have a demo of the ticking hands and gears!

(a new gear video is being recorded and will be up real soon!)


I also decided to photoshoot an image of me in my Zoey cosplay (hunter was quickly added in). I had a photo shoot a few months back and never did anything with the images yet. The photographer is my good friend, Rios Lopez.




So for convention news!

I am planing and preparing for Omni-expo 😀

I will be there with Ellen Mclain and John Patrick Lowrie. Come on out!!

I am working on a new cosplay, also! Garrus Vakarian from Mass Effect and Tali Zorah! Very challenging- But I am up for it! Right now, I am woking on casual outfit for Garrus….I am not sure how to tackle armour. I will post updates when I have images to show.

But because of the guests, I will also be in my other cosplays at some point :) (Zoey, Sniper,)
