So, a man I know very well has decided to document his own experiments with crafting and Cosplay. As a fellow newbie to the whole idea, I have been trying to give him as much support as I can. What he has decided to attempt is pretty complex, and I would like to think that he is getting some good support, feedback and constructive criticism from other like-minded people. Therefore, I decided to share his Tumblr with you, so you can take a look and see what he’s up to!
His name is Clockwork, or Clockworkwolf, and here it is, his Warhammer 40k Space Wolves Space Marine armour!
And don’t be fooled by the name – Ars means “art/art of”, “craft” or “skill” in Latin, nothing to do with bottoms. Just for the sake of completion, Mechanicum means “mechanical” or “of/concerned with machines/engineering”. I suppose one possible translation then, coming from someone who has absolutely no history with Latin, could be “mechanical art” or “skill concerning machines”. Make of that what you will, and any Latin speakers out there, feel free to correct me!
