Right into the middle of it! [/url]

The spats:


Dogtags:


Fluff:


Fabric sash (displayed on my female mannequin, the male one was occupied):


Rosary (in reality black with gunmetal accents, not silver):


More fluff made of an Akuratsu Kreuz necklace, a skull and some scorched parchment:


I hope you like it, because soon there will be more!

Very cool. Glad you made it over.

 Great start on the detail work! Should make for a great costume!

Thank you. I hope it will, because this is a monstre project because of the coat. Sewing on ca 100 buttons by hand... I better not think about it.

I'm already working on the codex, but was asked to make another scroll holder, so while waiting for the DH party to arrive, I'm fabricating Chaos stars out of leather.  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/rolleyes.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='rolleyes.gif' />

Love the fancy fiddly bits all over the boots, nice touch.  And now I need to make a pair of purity seal earrrings  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

And those earrings would make more sense than my cellphone charm there  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' />

Inquisition costumes do allow the wearer to add an inordinate ammount of crap, don't they?

Okay, my belt size does limit the amount of things hanging from it a bit...

So you don't have a 52" waist, then?

I sometimes think that people choose their characters based purely on the ammount of gubbins they can adorn themselves in. The fixation with Purity seals is one such example.
I don't think anyone in the Imperial Army should have a purity seal. it's just not a pure fighting force- too many non humans in it. like wise the rubbish that hangs from the Inquisition is equally silly. It may look great on a figure but in a real warzone performing the manner of combat that we've seen half of that stuff they hang off themselves would be left on the battlefield.
I watch to see how much various people add in their quest to get the "look".

On one side, I can understand what you're saying, however in my opinion the aesthetics of WH40k are about being so over the top, that you can't see the bottom. And: not every Inquisitor burns to be the first on the battlefield, many of them are actually sitting in an office, reading reports, or having tea with the nobility of a given planet.
And then again: embellishments destroyed in a fight=work for the masses who produce them=living.

On purity seals: imo it's especially important to find the few pure among the many not-so-pure. And even those may get corrupted over time.

As far as I see my costume, I'll still be as puritanistic as hell, compared to illustrations.

Of course when (and if) I'll make my assassin's costume, it won't have any of this schnickschnack.
