Cosplayer Beverly > Costume of Dewshine from Elfquest
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- 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.
- Personal Thoughts:
- ElfQuest is probably the first real 'graphic novel' I ever read, around the tender age of 11 I think, 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).
