I looked at the first photo and immediately thought of the second.
In light of the fact that I have to skip NYCC for financial reasons (sorry), and because Sheryl Chee is a helper, I may as well show you guys what we’re going to be wearing at Geek Girl Con when we cosplay on the Saturday! (we’re street clothes-ing it on Sunday)
As I said, Sheryl is an enabler, so I’m going to be wearing some kind of Izzy—old Izzy, repaired Izzy, just-makeup-and-accessories Izzy … remains to be seen. But Some Kinna Izzy. I’m also wearing the Orlesian Noble Gown because I made a fucking ballgown, guys.
For Beth, we’re hoping to finish her DA:I Cassandra!! We wanted to make it for PAX Prime, but the limited time frame and expensive-ass cat surgery made us delay the costume until now. But we’re super excited to debut this! Beth has been practicing her “BULLSHIT!”
This is probably a bad time to let you guys know that these are probably the last new costumes we’re going to be making for a while—we’re thoroughly burnt out (in energy as well as financially). While we’ll still be attending some cons next year in our existing costumes, I wouldn’t anticipate seeing any new projects until at least halfway through next year. I have a lot of work and other freelance projects coming up, so cosplay is going to have to take a step back for the time being. I’ll still be online and my usual derpy self, but not crafting anything new. :C
Original design by spader7! I just lovingly cosplayed it :) I had post-DA2 forced conversion (+ LI Hawke) in mind but Dave was writing the scenes before he saw the art/costume. There’s an homage in the comic design but it’s still distinct from ours.
omg I didn’t know the LI Hawke angle on it
So I guess that means nobody ever noticed the LI arm band on Qunaribela?
Come on, it wouldn’t be BioWare without the emotional shenanigans! I’m just keeping in line with the source material!
also I … really like this photo for some reason
Allegra looks fantastic!
told you I was making purse nugs a thing
also boy howdy am I glad I finished the gown
PAX PRIME LINEUP!
FRIDAY: Captain Scarlett (Allegra) and the Sheriff of Lynchwood (Beth) from Borderlands 2 until about 3 PM when Allegra frantically changes into The Rebel from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag multiplayer for the cosplay meetup and panel (3:30 meetup, 4:30 panel)
SATURDAY & SUNDAY: Evangeline de Brassard from Dragon Age: Asunder (Beth) and the debut of the Orlesian Noble Gown from World of Thedas (Allegra). Big debut, progress shots to come as I’ve been scared of not finishing this baby … but the structure is mostly done at this point so I finally feel comfortable showing you guys what I’ve been making.
Beth and I will be at the AC panel on Friday, the DA panel on Saturday, and probably at the costume parade on Sunday (though possibly not partaking since contests meh), though Beth may not be wearing Evangeline on Sunday (we’ll see how she’s feeling). We’ll be hanging out in our street clothes on Monday in case anyone wants to chill when we’re not in armor and hoops skirts and masks, oh my.
We hope to see you there!!!!

okay more straight in this instance than white but you know
Okay, so @subitoallegra just wrote this amazing post about how being “the best” at cosplay isn’t a compliment and how it ain’t a competition and more like a club, so here’s my Isabela. It took me around 2 months to assemble this costume and I’d like it to be better, but it was so much fun to walk around being ‘Bela for the night that I just want to do it again ASAP and go to a con. Unfortunately i live in the UK so most cons are out of reach but I want to try and find some in london to go to in my kick ass outfit that is 90% hot glue and 10% adoration.
Oh my god, look at that badass. The leatherworking here? The armor? I am so jealous. You did such a phenomenal job, omg. You look awesome :D
You should definitely go to MCM! I always see such amazing video game cosplay there, including BioWare/DA ones. You’d be in great company!

Thanks for the feature, Dee! :D
We have an extra copy of World of Thedas lying around … would people be interested in a giveaway?
edit: People seem interested! Going to figure out international shipping rates to see if we have to limit this to US/Canada or go across the oceans, then I’ll have something up on Monday. If you could comment with your country if you’re interested, I’ll get a better sense of things as well :)
