#abeardaday Day 20: dwarven
Balder was the bearer of light to the dwarves. It was he who went deepest into the caverns when dwarves still were novices with the axe, and it was he who tapped into the mastery of the earth and heavens. It was Balder who discovered in the heavy darkness, remnants of a fallen star who had grown entombed within the Earth’s slow, creeping embrace. It was Balder, whose skill allowed him to forge the star within its sepulchre by tapping into the crust for the heat needed for such a task. For many years his family waited for his return, knowing that he would not come until he had perfected his craft. Finally Balder, bearer of light returned to welcome his brethren to share his knowledge and join him: That from utter darkness great knowledge and beauty could be found.
First pair cosplay photoshooting. It was such much fun and I love to do it again. Especially playing in the medival age is amazing. Before I thought doing a witcher cosplay.. Unfortunately, I didn't find white long hair for playing Geralt of Riva..

The hilt decoration of this rapier includes the coat of arms of the Albani family, possibly Orazio Albani (1576–1653), ambassador from Urbino to the papal court. While clearly influenced by French ornament, the decoration has been attributed to Gasparo Mola (1567–1640), a medalist and goldsmith working in Rome between about 1620 and 1630.
