Thanks for all the lovely comments! And don't be jealous, anyone could make a WH40k costume if they really wanted to. If you've never done anything like it before, you'll just need a little more time.
Besides, we need more 40k costumes! I've only seen a few so far.

Oh, and I've had plenty of female 40k players compliment me for this outfit. I've no doubt there are girls on the internet, as well as girls playing 40k.
Though really, wth does it matter whether there are more girls than guys entertaining this hobby, it's not like 40k is just a cover-up for a mating ritual. If you love the game, you won't give a sh*t.

Very well done, indeed. I was particularly impressed with the wig, as originally I thought you had dyed your hair...

I second the motion that we should see more 40k costumes at events...

Fantastic costume kaede, thank you for posting up more pictures as well Were there any other 40k or Fantasy costumes at the event you went to?

From the photos, you are too critical of yourself as a model for it, I think you pulled the whole thing off very well. If you get chance more photos of costumes you have made would be great, as personally I am fascinated that you can make such an impressive costume in just two weeks.

thanks. I just thought I might forget if I delayed it any further ^,^'

There were no other 40k costumes at the event I went to, but here's a few I stumbled across on the net:

So jumping on the bandwagon here but that truely is a stunning costume, I can easily see how you won the competition in London, and probably would win many more you chose to enter.

I love some of the Inquisitor girls in those links, there's no set image an inquisitor should look like so they've really got an open canvass! Yours on the other had, you actually are the sister on page 19. You must have researched the costume very thouroughly, every detail is spot on! You must be so proud of your work!

Is it wrong that I spent the whole time inspecting the details on the meltagun?

The costume is really good, no wonder you won the compettion. I wonder why no-one made a chaos costume. Hmmmn, I gotta start working on a costume. Hope to see you at next competition, look for a Dreadnought, or maybe a Crimson Fist....
