Can you guess?

1. Snake
2. My brother
3. What's the difference?

You see.... I have to make this work!!

We lost someone today.... funerals suck.... because they hurt. And they tend to make you reflect on what  is important. Wich is good.. I just don't like crying.... wich I tend to do alot.

Today made me wonder.... How "hobby" and real life intertwine.
I have seldom become so convinced to do a character justice as this one.

Solid Snake will be done like it has never been done before.

Edit: My brother is not the one who died. Someone who has been a thread through both our lives has. And it makes you think "full circle" sometimes :)



Thank you Ruud :)

Cheers to BuurAnne!

Okay, so we started work again this week. It;s been one heck of a summer holiday...
We went on a trip with our own family, just us and the girls and we had an amazing time!
We went to Paris and next to Gamescom in Cologne.

Ubi requested all of my assassin outfits, so they could be on display there.... I was a little nervous, because if something were to go wrong?
Everything went well and we had a killer time! We put up the mannequins on the tuesday and it was strange to walk out of the hall that evening. But the Ubi crew really watched the costumes and they made sure eveyrthing stayed where it was supposed to stay :D  And we were so, so proud!!!! My work was part of the Ubisoft Booth at Gamescom 2014.... can you imagine? It was so weird to see so many people take pictures of them and it was also impressive to see them all put together (something I have never seen myself either). 

We met so many people and we had so much fun!!!

We were just in time to finish Elise and it felt good to walk around together. My wife is going through some tough times here and there and it was awesome to be able to put her in the spotlight and to share in this awesome hobby!!! I think she looks amazing as Elise and for us the title of the new game sais it all.... Unity :) So whoever doesn;t want to hop along on out great adventure that is your loss. We stand United!

A big thank you to Leon Winkler, Ubisoft crew Denise and Dennis and to Leon and Jessica from LeonChiroCosplay. It was awesome to be there with you and you toke such great care of us!!
Also, it was great to see and meet so many awesome cosplayers who actually knew us from the internet :) :) It was great to spend time with you and share in the Gamescom experience!!!!

Thanks to all for all the support and see you soon!!! More events coming :D
And ofcourse, last but not least.... Thanks mom and dad :) Our girls were in such caring hands we never had to worry one bit!!!!!

Hi folks!
Just realized I hadn't updated my journals lately.
Alot has happened!!! Our daughter D'Elenn is growing fast!!! She gained more then a Kilogram in a month!!! We are very proud of her and her big sis for keeping it cool (most of the time that is :P :D )

Anyways, the teaser form my Arno costume from Assassin's Creed Unity was uploaded by Ubi, so I smacked it up here aswell. You probably figure I have more to show. Anyways, that'll have to wait a while :) I updated a few things visible in the teaser and it's all more to my liking now.

I wish I could show more, but for now I'll keep spamming Edward shots.... sorry about that, but Nice shots keep rolling in here and there.

More soon, so please.... stay tuned!!!

Even though the Unity stuff has all yet to start... My hands itch reading and seeing more from MK X..... :) Well, first it's time for the summer break. We've earned it I think.

All the best!!

Upcoming weekend there's a convention that is always alot of fun. Even B'Elanna enjoys it; the elf fantasy fair.
There's an Assassin meet up. I won't be there... weird huh? We'll be going for just one day. With friends.... and...

I'll go as Snake! !! (Totally out of place on a fantasy fair)... I want to be there as.... me. As something I like, something that won't atract a crowd but is still fun. Never been the Boss on an event :)

Think I'm missing out on something? I don't think Snake will be there in any other form.... Like I said.... looking forward to it. But shouldn't I be an assassin?

How to act "in character" with a character you're not supposed to see? Ha ha ha! Maybe I'll bring a cardboard box :p well I've got the voice right?! ;)

Thoughts.... anyone? If at all.... not sure why I posted this :p

Well... it'll be Snake eff 2014 :)

Hi folks!
Just a question here. Have you seen the feature on Kotaku of me as Snake?
If so, you must have read the amazing intelligent comments there.

Some were really nice and thanks for that! Others were beyond insulting. Now I am not bothered by those comments perse, but it's amazing to see what people type that I would love to hear in real life.... cause seriously... without any crued or colorful language I'd verbally smash them to pieces.

Mr. Kojima tweeted my picture and mr. Hayter stated I was the best impression yet. And even the person at Kotaku who posted the pics loved them (thanks Luke!!). Those comments state more then enough. And are a thousand times worth more then any ridiculous insult on Kotaku by a random nobody. Mix that with amazing support on here and I think I'm doing allright :) thanks everyone!

I am kind of curious though if these people are always bashing people or items on Kotaku or if they just do that to me as Snake. I don't drop by there very often so I was hoping you could help out (if you do visit there regulary).

All the best!
Rick
