I really love this shot, I saw a drawing awhile ago of Karkat pulling this pose. (If someone can find the picture, I'll link to it.) The design is Rumminovs [link]
The armor was started about a few weeks after AX 2012 and is made entirely out of craft foam. The cape was hand beaded by myself. The shirt and pants were made days before ALA 2013, and they look really bad :C The wig is from epiccosplay and the gloves from welovecolors.
