Hey guys (and gals?). I caught the forum linking to my website (http://www.ginnymcqueen.com). Thanks for all the kind words! I tried to get the new Shadowrun books to do what they did back in the day where they accepted photo stuff for their source stuff, but it seems they don't seem to have a place for it anymore. And I haven't been able to play in years since I moved and have no fellow geeks to play with. But I still love Shadowrun and hope to get back into it again one day! <3!
Are you going to be at GenCon? There's a lot of cosplayers there, and Catalyst has a huge showing at the 'con as well. Definitely a great way to meet new players and get some runs in.

Always start and end character creation by asking yourself "why is this character not an ork." If you don't have a good answer you should be an ork. -UmaroVI

Kernal  Made them from a halloween mask.

I the lower jaw and mouth pieces actually fit over a person's jaw.  I cut the teeth and tusks apart and superglued them onto a set of cheap rubber vampire fangs.  Pretty quick & dirty job originally, but they've held up for like 8 or 9 years now :)

I need to get around to buying a second mask at some point though, as a backup in case something happens to these ones.

Ginny: Nice SR costume.

AFAIK, we generally don't use live photo's anymore for the books, but still, if you haven't I'd say drop Brent Evans, CGL's current art director, a line.  Even if we don't use photo's directly, maybe he can hook you up with one or two of our artists for a reference model or something.  I know several of our artists do that.

Also, if you end up at Origins or Gen Con this year, let us know.  A bunch of us do costumes one or two days, and we also do a SHadowrun LARP event called the Shadowrun Scramble each year :)

Every year I end up having to go to another convention at the same time as GenCon. One of these times I'll make it there. I usually can only go to conventions I'm invited to as a guest (except Dragon*con, my vacation convention). But I'll find a way there someday!

I've had that problem, but in reverse.  I usually work Gen COn and Origins, and there are always a pile of other cons I'd love to go to around the same time.

There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

I always like to use femmes with firearms as an avatar.  They both fit my handle and are awesome to look upon.

Well, you'll just have to get another avatar up. But if you pull from the same shoot, I'm going to start calling you twins... ;D

A wise man once said "Imitation is the greatest form of flattery"

I have been checking all over the place and I just cant find anyone that will do SR4 weapon Props. I really wish I could Price out a life sized model of the Panther Assault cannon
