300 Body Paint Photoshoot
Geek Girl Northern Belle Rogue
looks epic modelling this Leonidas from 300 inspired body paint! Here's what she had to say...
"As not only a history and comic geek but a stage combatant, 300 has always been a favourite of mine. While I loved the graphic novel, it was really the movie and the performances that took my breath away. (And no, I'm not just talking about all the abs. =P ) The ferocity of Leonidas, the love between him and Gorgo, the scenes and aesthetics, the loyalty and brotherhood, the moments of dark humour, and of course the fight for freedom, both in concept and the literal fight scenes of the film. At the end of 2016 I had started to put on some weight, and while I'm sure many would chide me or tell me I looked fine/was health etc. I was beginning to feel uncomfortable in my own skin. So I reached out to ArtistiCurves with this concept, a gender bend of Leonidas, a Spartan Warrior and Queen. Even though I have not endured intensive training like the actors in the film, or true Spartans, I had faith that ArtistiCurves could help me feel like a warrior all the same. This was the very last official 'cosplay' that I did for 2016 on December 29th. It also serves as a reminder, of what I want to accomplish this year, the things I want to fight for. Not only my ideal body while maintaining my health, but one step further, to fight for what I believe is right, just like Leonidas did. Big thanks to ArtistiCurves for helping me to execute this concept and to Cajun Cosplay for filming the behind the scenes. Now Spartans, ready your breakfast and eat hearty... for tonight, we dine in hell!"
