Cosplay

Heather

Not new to the world of Elfquest or the world of theatre, I'm not sure why it took me so long to cosplay. Living in the middle of nowhere may have had something to do with it, but regardless, I'm glad I've done it now, and look forward to more!

The results of Rob's and my first cosplay:

(more can be seen here http://boingboing.net/2013/12/20/cosplay.html)

However, these other amazing cosplayers have really blown me away:





I can't leave out Jimmy Sherfy and Collin Pelton. (We were priviledged to meet Jimmy this past summer at SDCC):


And of course, this oldie but goodie should not be forgotten:


Wendy herself was (and still is) a fantasic cosplayer. And I love the fact that EQ has had so many amazing people represent them at cons world wide and other artistic endeavors. Hearing from more of you fans who have or are currently cosplaying would be great!

Embala

I love to see this collection here on the Scroll. Great fan effort with amazing results!

Heather

It is amazing what people can do with cosplay. I know there is so much more out there as well. This is just a small taste.

Elwing

Wow! You look amazing! Where does one get ears like that? And yes, I've seen a few real good ones over the years, and it's great to see the tradition continued.

Heather

@Rob made ours, but I do know there are plenty of places to buy them.

Elwing

yes, I've seen LOTR and Star Trek type pointy ears, but these seem much larger. Did you cast these or make them in some other way?

Heather

We tried a variety of things. From taking slightly on model ears and then hacking them as well as casting.

Ive done a couple elfquest costumes over the years and am working on a third.

Aroree (worn at Dragon con in 2009)

@elf_queen_vik I hoped you would show up and add you dreamy photos *loves*

Is curious ... what will be next? ;)

Heather

@elf_queen_vik Those are fantastic. Really love Newstar's. Do you make the costumes yourself?

elf_queen_vik

@Heather, for the most part yes, for Aroree I got a two piece body suit and added the fur and fabric painted the pattern on the leg. I styled the wig myself. For Newstar I had a dress on hand that I was not using for anything else so I Frankensteined it into Newstars dress, the wig I also styled myself. (BTW Rob is a PERFECT Pike and your Krim is great!)

@Embala Im working on a Final Quest Ember, I have been wanting to do her forever as she is my Favorite and I identify with her personality the most.

Ive started on it already and it will just need a few tweaks and then its done. (Im not sure how Im gonna do the boots/leggings.)

Embala

No need to TELL that you'll do Ember. It's obvious! :D

Heather

Thanks so much! We had fun doing the cosplay.
Your new Ember outfit is shaping up nicely!

Kohalu

How do you embed images on this forum?

Here's my Skywise and Jimmy's Cutter:

Rob

@Kohalu, use plain html. I took the liberty of editing your post.

Embala

Great! :D

Thornbrake

@elf_queen_vik Wow the Ember costume looks awesome. Can't wait to see the finished product on you.

Heather

Love the Skywise @Kohalu!

Rae_treeshaper

I wouldn't mind to cosplay, I'd love to do a tyleet or yun sometime. Although maybe not as good as the above!

I definitely am not great at costume making. That is why we got help with ours. No reason you can't have good ones as well!

Dark_Serval

Was considering Leetah for this year's con, but do not think it will come to fruition. :/

Heather

Found this one just recently online. Not sure who is all in it. But it's fantastic!

Tynami

I love all these display pics. Years ago I had a site of nothing bit EQ display... I'll have to look it back up when I get back to my comp.

Tynami

I found a TON of my old cosplay pics and links to the players... since they're not my pics to post, I'll post the links to the players. The ones I've linked are definitely not all the sites have to offer, but are some of my favorites.

elfquestcostume LJ - haven't been on this site for a while, but had a bunch of pics on it years ago

Embala

Treestump 's fab indeed!
I like your Ember, Dark serval. I bet real Ember would be distracted all the time!
Great finds, kat. Thanks for the collection!

RedheadEmber

Don't know what her name is here (or if she's even a member)
But I really love the Early Final Quest Moonshade pics Amanda posted over at FB. Especially considering that she dressed her daughter up as Chitter.

Thornbrake

I think Amanda is @devils_little_sis. And yes, her Moonshade cosplay was awesome.

You got it! I sent her a message so she can know we're talking about her ;) And hopefully she will share her fantastic pics!

Shadowfire

awwww YAY!!! i wasn't sure if anyone liked my very first cosplay, i'm glad someone mentioned it here! i traded for mine and my daughter's costumes, since i fail at sewing anything other than patch-jobs, lol. i was happy enough that i had managed to sew the crystals on my costume without any issues! i was so flattered, not only did ElfMom know who i was before i introduced myself (she asked me, "Are you Amanda?" and once i said yes she asked "Aren't you supposed to have your daughter with you as Chitter?" my kiddo was wandering around the convention with her dad, at the moment. she was 3 years old and didn't have the patience to wait in a line with me, lol), but she also said my daughter made a PERFECT Chitter, except her hair wasn't messy enough, lol! i believe she also complemented me on the accuracy of both costumes. my husband was also supposed to cosplay as Strongbow, but his costume wasn't finished in-time. sometime i'll don my Moonshade costume again and take some better pics out in the forest around my house, but for now here's some from Convolution 2013.

Chitter with a popsicle

Moonshade

i hope to cosplay again sometime, perhaps as Leetah (even though i'm SUPER pale, lol), or maybe Joyleaf. i've been wanting to make a quick Joyleaf costume recently, i'm pregnant with our second child, our son, and we decided to name him Tam, so Joyleaf would be perfect, other than i'm a brunette, not blonde. anyways, sorry for the HUGE post, if you know me from Facebook you know i have a tendency to do this sometimes, lol.

RedheadEmber

I can't say it often enough.
But those pictures are awesome. And little Chitter is so cute

Embala

You got a fantastic Moonshade costume, Amanda. Your little one as Chitter is SO cute!

I'd love to see you posing as Moonshade in a green-growing place. Or as Joyleaf ... with little Tam.

Heather

So glad to see you put these up here. You both look fantastic. I remember you posting the costume before it was done, even then I could tell it was going to rock.
Looking forward to seeing your hubby as Strongbow.

He'd probably be the youngest cosplayer ever.

RichardPini

Especially now that Ember is enduring her own private Descent into the Cave (Hero's Journey-speak there), I'm bumping this thread up with a lovely cosplay tribute.

Oh yeah I have pics of my new Ember costume!!!

Ember had a great time with family and friends! I love the photos - the "portait" one has the feeling of a forest glare and the full body shot show so much fun.
Thank you for sharing.

Oh... have I mentioned that you look fab, elf_queen_vik? :) All three of you do!
