What about the Nome King's magical belt?

Personally, I think a cosplay of Princess Ozma would be awesome.

@tsumi: Yeah I could do the belt, I think there was a good illustration of that in Ozma of Oz. And I've seen a few Ozma cosplays on the net.

The bottom of her dress is a bit confusing, but I think it's just very loose up top and then pleated or loosely gathered around the belt. http://classicosm.com/children/book3withnotes.jpg

Heh, and I still need to do book Howl at some point with the patchwork silver and blue coat.

I really need to finish my costume con costumes and reread AGoT before I buy anything.
Oh yeah, I will definitely research a little bit more before I try anything. XD; My other alternative is to get some a wig and some extensions and cobble some gold/silver Targ hair together, which I'm thinking might work better, but we'll see. I've still got time to figure it out.

Feel free to PM me! I'd say you have pretty free rein as I can't recall any particular description of Lyanna's clothing besides the bloody white dress/blue rose crown, but I would love to help!

I think it's neat that Garth Nix has such a good representation here. XD I love his work. I'm planning a Lirael (Pipe-Wielding Second Assistant Librarian) for Dragon*Con this year, and probably a Meryl (with my little sister as Addie) from The Two Princesses of Bamarre.

Of course, I'll have to put some effort into not crying while wearing that one. The poem from the end will start flashing up in my head. "The sisters embraced and then they parted..." Siiigh.

I would love to see Meryl and Addie cosplay! ;_;

I'd love to do Artemis Fowl cosplay myself but there isn't really anyone I could pull off. Maybe Opal Koboi, but you'd need a group to be recognizable for any character, I think.

Yep, a group would be necessary, or at least a pair. That's why I love my sister - I got her hooked on Artemis Fowl, so maybe one day we'll do Opal and Holly. Maybe. I'd like to, anyway. For the two princesses, we'll need to be together to be recognized, but it'll be nice. We always go trick-or-treating together, anyway. (She's 11.)

I think someday, just for the bells and the sword and the tunic, I'm going to do a Sabriel cosplay. And I really kinda hope it'll be epic, but there's no guaranteeing.

To all those who have mentioned Ender's Game: <3
That would be pretty awesome - sometime or other I've got to get around to that.

I actually just finished a Goldberry costume for Halloween - she's a character from the Lord of the Rings trilogy who apparently wasn't "important" enough to get in the movie. (No resentment there or anything... ^^) I really enjoyed trying to recreate my own vision of her.

Thanks When my SO volunteered us to help at a future Worldcon BwB suite, he mentioned to a friend that I'm working on a Lyanna costume. I'm sure one of them will drag me over to George so he can see the costume. I want it to be perfect.

It looks like the waist is slightly dropped and the belt helps hide a seam; I'm reminded of the American Girl doll of Samantha in her default dress. You can probably get away with a loose top and a slightly pleated, gathered full skirt.

Thanks for the tip. And holy moly, I think I found the perfect pattern, though it's too small. O_O

I would absolutely love to cosplay someone from The Song of Ice and Fire. I don't know who...I'm not really sure who tho'. Arya's my favorite female character, but I'm kind of a little too old. Cersei would be AWESOME even though, I...you know. Hate her with a passion.

At some point I also want to dress up as either Kieran or Ash respectively from The God Eaters, but only if I had the other half of the pair with me. I'd probably end up as the latter, if only because I would kind of feel actively uncomfortable as a white female to be cosplaying an (effectively) Native American male. Ash on the other hand! Is white and geeky like me.

Thirdly I would love to be Alanna from The Song of the Lioness She was my first heroine, and we happen to ALMOST share a name (I pronounce mine the same as hers, anyway).

I've already cosplayed (for Haloween) Louis from the Vampire Chronicles. (And Death from Sandman, tho'...graphic novel rather than book, really!)

Yay, more ASOIAF fans! I would love to see an Arya -- she's one of my favorites too, but I could never pull her off, I'm too girly-figured and round-faced XD But I'd love to see a Cersei too -- the more ASOIAF cosplay, the better~

Tamora Pierce cosplay would also be super cool, those were my favorite books as a kid. Unfortunately I can't think of any character I could/would do from them... maybe Daine.

I'm really wanting to cosplay as Kahlan from The wizard's First Rule...Or as the Mother confessor in general.
