"Witchblade" for Cake Con Collaboration 2018
Witchblade is a comic book series published by Top Cow Productions, an imprint of Image Comics, which ran from November 1995
to October 2015. The series was created by Top Cow founder and owner Marc Silvestri, editor David Wohl, writers Brian Haberlin and
Christina Z, and artist Michael Turner. The Witchblade is a conscious, intelligent, and ancient weapon with supernatural origins. It is the
offspring of the universe’s opposing aspects, the Darkness and the Angelus. The Witchblade is a male aspect created to act as a
balance, which must have a female as a host. When not in use, it can look like an ornate, jewel encrusted, right-handed gauntlet. When
wielded by an unworthy user, that person will lose their arm. It forms a symbiotic relationship with the host, who can hear the
Witchblade. When used, it expands across the body of the wielder, often shredding clothes and covering the body like armour. The
Witchblade is also an excellent lock pick, and can heal wounds, even mortal ones. The Witchblade can re-animate the dead,
empathically show the wielder scenes of great trauma, and allow the wielder to relive experiences from past wielders as dreams. It had
many wielders However, the Witchblade itself chooses who shall wield it’s power so it chose NYPD detective Sara Pezzini, the first
wielder of the Witchblade to appear in comics, as well as the one most well-known to readers.
My work is loosely inspired by the breathtaking XM Studios’ Top Cow Universe Premium Collectibles series statue of Witchblade. It is
made out of Renshaw Extra Modelling Sugar paste and detailed with Renshaw Extra Modelling Chocolate; it’s completely handmade
and hand painted and has a total height of 45 cm.
