Love is in the air at New York Comic-Con
Not your average interview…
At the center of it all was a guy with an alien bursting from his stomach and a woman as a striking version of Red Sonja – couple Steven Porter and Nicci Fett. Fans may recognize Fett (no relation to the Mandalorian clones of the same name) from other conventions, since she’s an accomplished costume maker and makeup artist.
Popping the question… as an alien pops out of his stomach.
Back to business…
How long have you been planning this, Steven?
It’s been in the work for probably about a year, but I bought some materials for it recently and actually made the ring wood over the last week or so.
What kind of materials did you use for the ring?
The ring itself is a wood veneer which I boiled to make soft, and then I bent it. After it pretty much held its shape, I glued it into place. After that, I ground it down to make it more of a ring shape. Then I took my dremel tool, and I carved in the symbol here, which is the mark of the sacrifice from the Berserk manga. And I inset that with some red stone that I’d crushed up.
Do you guys both like Berserk?
How are you feeling right now, Nicci?
I think I’m gonna barf and die right here. Die in my barf. [Laughs]
So it’s safe to say it’s been a good Con so far?
[Both] YES! Yes!
