Finally finished my Zekrom in the nick of time for Youmacon 2012, after over 2 years of WIP. I'm so glad he was well recieved. I won 1st place Journeyman craftsmanship, and had a blast stomping around detroit in suit. After the masquerade I even rode the People Mover (tram) back to Greektown and busted through Fishbones(fancy restaurant) to get back to my hotel room. LOL! It was so much fun. MUCH thanks to all my entourage who helped me finish my costume 10 minutes before judging, including
More video and professional pics to come.
Great photo by my friend, at the Renaissance Center in Detroit with Canada across the river.
