Watch Live Instagram

Nik Nitsvetov is a photographer and award-winning cosplayer. Today he is portraying the immortal king, Pietas, from my Bringer of Chaos series. I've had this character in my head since I was 17. Now, 50 years later, I'm getting to see him brought to life. Live. From Russia. Pinch me! I must be dreaming. ;) Here's how to watch live Instagram on your computer.

Watch Live Instagram

I discovered you can see live events on your PC. I use Chrome, but I imagine it's also viewable on other browsers. If you need instructions on loading an app to your browser, watch this video.

You'll need an app -- here's one I suggest. It's the big brother of the one in this video: Chrome IG Story Plus.
Load it to your browser, then click the icon once it's installed (it's all in the video). Use the pop out feature and you can resize to fit your screen. Search for nitsvetov -- then pick Nitsvetov (Nik) to get the right one.

Choose Top Live at the bottom and sit back to watch.


Watch the Cosplay

On September 1, the Russian cosplayer, Nik Nitsvetov will be portraying immortal king Pietas during a live feed on Instagram. To take part, follow Nik on Instagram and then watch for an announcement that the feed has gone live.

Time for the cosplay is 7:00 AM Eastern (2:00 PM Moscow) and will last 3 hours. September 1, 2018. Drop in anytime.

Soldier to King

Nik Nitsvetov cosplayed Pietas in armor he hand-made for the Chaos is Coming Cosplay. See for yourself in these images.

The one at the left, with the heart, was from Nik to me at the end. That was so sweet of him! Nik is a gentleman who is generous with his time and energy. I share his work as often as possible. He deserves all the praise.  Please follow him! He never fails to amaze.

Be sure to check out the links to other MFRW authors at the end.

Before the immortal king Pietas from the Bringer of Chaos series was king, he was a rookie a plebe in a group called the Discord. I'll be writing a series set in this period of Pietas's life, and these images will be used for covers, banners, and videos.

I plan two more books for the Bringer of Chaos series and then two books in the Antonello Brothers series before moving to the Discord books. The series is so new I don't even have a working title for it yet! The hero will be a teenager, freshly out in the world and on his own for the first time in his life. I'm open to suggestions if you have ideas.

Pietas was too proud to steal; too stubborn to beg @nitsvetov #SpaceOpera #PietasFans

Chaos is Coming – Sci Fi Cosplay

On Nov 27th, Nik Nitsvetov wore the Pietas armor he hand made for the Chaos is Coming Cosplay, performed live on Instagram.

Last year Nik performed as Pietas from the Bringer of Chaos series doing the Ritual of Strength. You can see the video of him performing here. This  cosplay he portrayed Pietas as a younger version of the immortal king. Before he led his people, Pietas was a plebe in the Discord. After all, even the mightiest river has a beginning.

The immortal king began life as a soldier when he was still a teenager. Imagine being abandoned on a new world where you have no idea about customs, no identification, no money, no food, and no friends. No one will hire you, and you are too proud to steal and too stubborn to beg. That was Pietas at age sixteen. Part of his story is revealed in the Bringer of Chaos series. These images (and nearly 700 like them) will be used for covers and banners for that new series. I can’t wait to start writing!

I hope you enjoy the images!

Decompress from the Chaos Cosplay? How? @nitsvetov #PietasFans #Cosplay #SpaceOpera

Decompress from the fabulous Chaos Cosplay with @nitsvetov how? #PietasFans #Cosplay #SpaceOpera

Decompressing

I watched the live stream of the new Pietas cosplay on Instagram on November 23rd and now I'm trying to decompress. Relax. Take a chill pill. All that stuff.

Well... it's not working.

I just saw my immortal king (who is in how many books now?) come to life before my eyes. I know I'm going to get a link to the pictures from this 3 hour photo shoot. I'll have high resolution photos to enjoy and use for various purposes. Nik also promised to video part of it as well. And then there was the live version. Did I mention it was live? LOL Yeah. Decompress from that... how?

Not happening anytime soon.

Watch the video on this page to see Nik as Pietas the king, done last year. Pietas Ritual

I'll be sharing exclusive shots of both cosplays with members of my reader groups. Are you one of them? Join here. I'll release the link in my next newsletter, out Dec 7th. Sign up now so you don't miss it.

Decompress? What...?!

At the end of the cosplay, Nik sent me a message -- a heart. <3 Squee! Sending a huge one back!
I don't think I will ever decompress from this...

Creating Armor

Nik Nitsvetov will cosplay Pietas in armor hand-made for the Chaos is Coming Cosplay. Creating armor for a king - quite a feat to list on your cosplay  resume. Nik has done an amazing job.

Last year Nik performed as Pietas from the Bringer of Chaos series for the Ritual of Strength. But before Pietas was king, he was a rookie a plebe in the Discord. Even the mightiest river has a beginning. Playing the immortal king as a rookie teenager in training ought to be fun to watch.

I've enjoyed watching Nik creating armor designed by Nano-Core specifically for this cosplay. The final style is somewhat different because taking a brand-new design and transforming it into wearable armor -- that's a lot of work. Nik had free reign to alter as needed to suit the cosplay. When you are creating armor, you need a bit of leeway!

Watch the live stream of this cosplay on Instagram November 23, 2019 at 8:00 am Eastern (4:00 pm Russia).

Chaos is Coming – a Sci Fi Cosplay @nitsvetov #cosplay #SciFi #MFRWauthor

 

Chaos is Coming - for sure. Pietas is almost ready to go live.

When I asked Nik to cosplay Pietas, he not only agreed, he offered to make the costume and weapons. I paid for the materials, but it was all his skill that went into making it. Check out the shoes! He made these by hand so they'd fit the uniform.

Chaos is Coming - Sci Fi Cosplay

Pietas, from the Bringer of Chaos series - as close to live as a character can get - at a cosplay live on Instagram the weekend of Nov 22/23. I'm calling it the Chaos is Coming Sci Fi Cosplay.

Nik Nitsvetov has finished the costume and weapons.  His work with foam, glue, and paint is nothing short of magic. Wait till you see the final costume! I'll be sharing pictures over the weeks leading up to the cosplay.

Nik lives in Russia, 7 hours ahead of us, so when it's 4pm here, it's 11pm there. Best way to know the time? Try Time.is I've linked this to show Moscow time, which where Nik will do the new Chaos cosplay.

A word about the uniform -- that banner showing the combat uniform was the prototype for Nik to use as a launchpad. I commissioned the uniform from Nano-Core, who also designed the weapons. Everything about this cosplay will be one of a kind, including the character.
