Hawke takes a dive…

or how a good costume dies.

So Laura and I were out getting some photos of my Dragon Age 2 Hawke costume when I thought it would be a good idea to get some action shots. Then looking down the hill, I though, “Hey I bet I could get some good speed if I ran down the hill.” Because a day after it rains it is the best idea in the world to making a running leap downhill in full armor with a 6′ polearm.

I look almost epic at first...

What I hoped to look like...

 

Hit the jump to see an animated version of me trying to make the jump…

Now to repair the costume and set out for another photoshoot…
