Anthem: Suit Customization
Very exciting that more things are starting to show and this time the suit customization are being shown by my colleagues here in Edmonton Francis our Character Artist Lead and our producer Leah. Ben is the Lead Producer in Austin.
They go through a lot of cool things. There´s of course the basics like colors and materials but also patterns, different colors to different parts, how shiny you want it to look etc.
N7 Day 2018
Time flies pretty weird right now. It feels like N7 was forever yet it was just here.
We celebrated with cake! Alas I came down to the kitchen too late for the whole picture, but I have to admit this was a really tasty cake! Usually I find bought cake here is just dry and the only additional spice it has is frosting. This one was actually really tasty with more citrus flavors and cream cheese filling.
They had a (in my opinion pretty difficult) questionnaires about the Mass Effect franchise and if you got all of the answers right you won this amazing Mass Effect package :D! I did not get all of my answers right. Unfortunately I did not take a picture of the questionnaire (might save my pride by not posting it either hah).
For this years they put together a celebration video for N7 that I really enjoyed :D. A lot of these people in the shot are actual developers ^^.
Halloween has come and gone and as usual it´s a big event here. At the studio we had the annual costume party, and I was part of the judging of these :D. We pick a winner for the best costume for individuals and then for groups.
This was this years backdrop
The winners of best party costume was this group of pikachus!
overall we had a ton of fun costumes but the ones that won were usually made by the competitors themselves and there was some thought into each of them :D.
Here´s a couple of them. I am heavily limiting the amount of pictures of individuals that people can identify them with as I haven´t gotten permission from them to actually post their pictures here. That´s why it´s quite sparce but we had a lot of participants :D.Here´s one of them as beast from X-men. This costume didn´t win it all but it was a very well made costume and highly rated!
We had the pumpkin carving contest too! I made the no face pumpkin haha :D the winner was the anthem pumpkin.
I look forward to next Halloween! It´s like being in this part of the world has rubbed off the whole spirit on me hah :D
Say what? Nutman, Ray, is coming over to the office now and then to sell salty and sweet snacks. It´s difficult to know when he will be in and it´s usually just an e-mail saying that you have 10 minutes to come and see him.
Finally I managed to meet Nutman Ray and verify that he is real haha. It´s become like a fleeting legend that nobody can catch. I celebrated by getting some caramel popcorn chocolate and chocolate raisins.
Just one of those funny perks that we have at the studio :D
