Witch and Wizard: The Fire
Last Updated: 05-11-2012
My first book cosplay! Pearce from Witch and Wizard: The Fire by James Patterson. I'm insanely proud of how Pearce turned out, considering all I had to go on was a couple of descriptions, and how I saw him in my head.
In the book Pearce is described as having white-blonde hair, and very blue eyes (I'll invest in color contacts eventually.) He's usually wearing the military uniform of the N.O. (New Order.) The uniform design in my costume was based on the short lived Witch and Wizard comic book, which, even though Pearce wasn't in it, gave me a starting place.
As for the ponytail, that's just always how I saw him. I thought it seemed impractical until I read one line later in the book about his hair "Trailing behind him in the wind." If he has enough hair for it to trail, he can have a ponytail.
I might make some modifications to the coat, making it look more like the comic, but this one worked for now, and aside from the button colors & those seriously irritating ruffles, it's pretty much perfect. Another thing I thought I should mention is that I sewed the armband myself. That's the only thing I made, so I'm pretty darn proud of it. I did discover I hate making Armbands though.
I can say I loved cosplaying Pearce (even though it was 80 degrees out and when I wear the hat with the wig it makes my head go numb.) I'm usually such a happy spazz, so it was kinda fun to act like such a sadist. I need to work on my evil facial expressions though XD
