Cosplayer Pirogoeth > Costume of Harry Dresden (Dresden Files, The)
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
He started off in a black canvas duster. The original coat was way too big and used the wrong type of canvas. It's been remade using duck canvas and an Inverness coat pattern.
The rest is simple: black t-shirt, jeans, black work boots. I found the staff and pentacle at a Ren Faire. I need to finish sanding down the staff and add the runes and sigils. The blasting rod is a foot long length of dowel that also needs runes and sigils.
Okay, I lied, the last piece wasn't so simple: the shield bracelet. It took a lot of looking on eBay to find the right shield charms. Once I had those it was easy: just attach them to some chain and it was ready to go!
- Personal Thoughts:
- The Dresden Files is my favorite book series. It took me a while to get him finished. Even now I still have some little details to add to the staff and blasting rod.
I debuted him at the book signing for "Ghost Story". When I finally got up to Jim, he was very impressed with it. He was even more impressed that I made the coat myself.
- Styling Notes
- With some steam and a lot of cutting, it looks much more Harry-like.
