Selections from Rodney Matthew’s immersively illustrated Alice in Wonderland.

Pretty excited today. I’m breaking into the world of cosplay. A bunch of my friends do it and they’re all really good at making costumes, so hopefully I’ll be able to enlist their aid or at least advice. This is also the first time I’ll be using a sewing machine in /years/ so hopefully it doesn’t suck too bad.
As for what it is, I’m basically making my own design. The idea is bringing Assassin’s Creed into the realm of high fantasy, which basically means I’ll be a dwarf assassin. When you’re stocky and have a +15” beard, cosplaying most video game/movie characters is nearly out of question, so you’ve gotta get creative. With some hard work and luck, hopefully it’ll be done in time for GenCon!
Anyway, wish me luck and if you have any awesome cosplay resources or a costume that you’ve made, send it my way! I’d love to see! Thanks!
"When you’re stocky and have a +15” beard, cosplaying most video game/movie characters is nearly out of question," This is a problem with videogames and movies, not beards and stockiness.
That should become a new thing. Cosplaying fantasy race versions of human characters. Dwarfish assassin! Elvish Doctor Who! Hobbit Lara Croft!!!
I must be stopped.
My aesthetic is, “I think it’s safe to assume that guy knows where to score some weed.”
