- Who you are cosplaying as
- Photographers name (if known)
- A short bio (such as: who made the costume, how long it took to make, and any other details about it you’d like to share
Character: Radagast the Brown
Bio: Radagast took me about two really fun weeks to complete! He’s such a character.
Characters: Kili, Galadriel, Bilbo, Thorin
Bio: Our group of friends loved the costume design from The Hobbit movies. So, we decided to enter Emerald City Comic Con’s costume contest and ended up taking home 1st place in the Group category. We loved working together so
much that, afterwards, some of us got together with one of our favorite photographers for a huge shoot on Tiger Mountain in Seattle, WA.
Bio: I’m a hobby costumer, with several Star Wars costumes under my belt. I’d wanted to do a LotR costume for some time. I built this costume over several months, and hand made the shirt, boots, and fellowship cape (not pictured). I had commissioned leather craftspeople to make the suede vest and the belt. I bought a wig online and had it professionally styled. This was originally a Halloween costume that I’ve been upgrading to make more authentic. Most recently I acquired a realistic sword and sheath.
