Steve the Gamer and his ‘character’, Allmost, are finished. Allmost was a very comical chaotic-neutral wizard character of mine for years. I decided to make a ‘gamer’ convention attendant, with a sort of classic con attendee set of belongings. Steve’s con badge says that he is from Brooklyn, NY, making a nice reference to Steve Rogers. His badge is a reproduction of the 2013 DragonCon badge. His clothing was all custom drafted for his size by me. He has a custom t-shirt that I made with iron-on printer paper, and jeans with little functional pockets, and lace-up high-tops. I made his canvas backpack with functioning pocket and zipper as well, added the tiny zipper pull, and used some heroclix to make him some collectibles that he purchased in the dealer room. Using tiny images in the Marvel Previews magazine, I was able to create super tiny little comic books also, and he has a character sheet FOR the wizard, all in a tiny scale.
His character, Allmost, (Vince is his mold), has a lot of subtle details and game references. His ‘tattoos’ are all nordic runes. They say his name and title…and then all the spells he has ‘memorized’. The player knows that the wizard character can only memorize certain spells per day, and so this is a reflection of that. The other tattoos are other symbols that I made up for the character as his various marks on things. He is also carrying rope, because that is the #1 item in any adventurer’s pack. He has some potions of healing, and a few daggers. His robe is gray, meaning that it is a Neutral Robe of the Archmagi. His skullcap hat has the word ‘Teleportation’ on it, so it is a helm of Teleportation. He is also carrying his own spellbook, which is removable and functional. He has a leather backpack for supplies, and enough room at the top for scrolls to stick out.
These are the last two dolls I needed to finish for the art show, so now I’m set!
