A Parent of the Year?

Posted on December 16, 2014 by tim

One Russian dad told this story: “When I was a kid, my dad has made me a New Year costume (in Russia children sometimes dress for New Year party like in Helloween). This was not a regular costume, but one of a Russian cavalerist – Hussar. Then when I went to the school I was a hero – half of school came to see my costume, students and teachers, all alike flocked to touch it, ask where did I get it etc. Now I have a little boy son and I wanted to do something similar. So I made this”. What did he make? Let’s see inside!



This days the costumes of cavalerists probably not so popular, so he decided to make something that’s really possible. A costume of World of Warcraft hero. For this he first created a 3D model on the computer.

Then made a 2d projection of 3d elements and printed this on separate sheets of paper.

There were a lot of cut out work.

The guy writes: “It took me one month of everyday 1-1.5 hour work. Every day”.

“The wife was at first calling me idiot and crazy, but the closer we were to the completion the more quite she became”.

“My friends were calling me asking to go out to sauna or bar and I was saying firm NO. I had things to do.”

Son was actively helping him too.

Then they were putting it all together.

According to the schemes.

“As of now I spent around $150. I stopped counting the expenses.”

    This Father is awesome and he really loves his son.

    It is so nice to see parents still doing wonderful things for their children, and spending time with them.

    Laugh ! What a good man/father .
    I hope his son gets a chance to wear
    this costume .

    I believe this is from The Elder Scrolls:Skyrim, not world of warcraft. Looks like Daedric Armor & Daedric sword.

    Still pretty cool.

  5. Zlombie says:

    Very cool! However, this costume is not from World of Warcraft, it is one of few various
    Dragon armours from Skyrim.

  6. Kami says:
