Alucard: Pure D E A T H by ducesa Alucard: Pure D E A T H by ducesa
so I only got 2 pics I sorta liked from MTAC and this is one of them and I actually REALLY love it... I had my Jackel with me for the first time and I'm sad I didn't get more pics, but we will have more sometime soon I'm sure! XP
I also wasn't feeling too well so I kept my glasses and hat off all day (no really, I had them but I didn't wear the glasses even once, and I think there maybe ONE pic of me with the hat out there somewhere as a con shot...)

I am Alucard...

The guns look okay, but they need a few things. Need to add a faux beaver tail safety, and hollow out the ring hammer. Also a faux slide safety lever. just for up close photos though.

they both have safteys so I dont know what you're talking about there... nothing needs to be hollowed out (what are you even TALKING about?)... and we're not allowed to have slides on guns for conventions, it would never pass weapons check...

They are NOT perfect, nor do I claim them to be, (though looking at images straight from the OVA they are 99% accurate as much as they can be from wood and following local prop and weapon guidelines) but considering they were made entirely by hand, they are pretty fucking amazing... and I'll have you know a very long standing and well known cosplay community idol happens to be VERY impressed and says he's never seen so much detail on the guns...

You know what, I've been struggling with this for a long time and I have to come out and say- I'm not a fan of your comments... I know you're just trying to be constructive, and that's why I've tried to be mature about this when you comment, but you always come off as being quite passive-agressive... and it only adds to it that you NEVER have anything nice to say... its ALWAYS nit picking, and you only seem to comment when you feel nit picking is needed... We are human beings, nothing a human being ever does will be perfect, because human beings are imperfect as a race... and that runs both ways...
Feel free to leave constructive criticism, but it would sure be nice if you weren't following my page JUST to criticize every 20th picture I post... which surely what it seems you are doing...

It looks great, but showing teeth would definitely give it the 'Alucard' touch.
ducesa Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I'm sure it would... I do have 2 sets of fangs in, but unfortunately I am not comfortable with my teeth (they are hideous) and I always hate pictures where they are showing even when i try...
