Debut: Dragon*Con 2008
ElfQuest is probably the
first real 'graphic novel' I ever read, around the tender age of 11
and probably the first comic of
any type I got my hands on that wasn't in the newspaper. My love of the series
should probably have been an indication of my penchant for manga...
once I got a hold of it.
Anyway, it's been a longtime favorite, and when my dear friend
Lilacwire brought up the idea of doing costumes from the series, I
couldn't help but be excited. Dewshine is one of my favorite
characters (right after Cutter).
Like most of my group, I relied on synthetic faux suede for the
majority of this costume. I tried a few different swatches and
picked this nice upholstery suede. The neckline trim is
faux-fur with a bit of brown wig fiber glued into the center.
^^ It wasn't being very useful anyway. The wig came from
Ebay, and the ears from Ardani Studios, where Inara and I also got
our Lodoss elf ears.
This costume made its debut at Dragon*Con 2008. Photos courtesy of
