And speaking of elves, I really should make a Mirkwood elf costume. Those are my favorite elves, hands down. Maybe for the opening of the next Hobbit movie depending on if I get less squeamish about the beard. LOL!
If you like elves, have you ever read the Elf Quest comicbook?

Somehow I've never read that! I think I should probably look into it. What's it about? (I mean, I'm assuming elves, lol.)

From their site:
"From the lands "beyond beyond" (or is it from the wellspring of everyday experience) come the stories and images that are interwoven into the ongoing tale that is ELFQUEST. Yet, even the most beautiful and powerful of stories need expression in one form or another. And since, alas, the storytellers can't gather each and every one of you around a crackling campfire, paper and ink must be added to the mix of imagination and words and pictures to bring the Wolfriders to life."
I haven't gotten into it yet, but my hubby is a huge fan. They have everything online for free here: http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics3.html. If you're interested.

I must confess, I've never read it. I just know some of the background and the trouble the writer had keeping the rights to her work. Here's what Wikipedia had to say:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elf_Quest

Thanks for the info, Ororo and Pirogoeth05! I'm definitely going to start reading that one.

Still working on the Queen Mab costume (picked out fabrics for it at last, now just to place the order for them)...

However, I had ordered these for my husband to carry around when he's dressed as Dresden at Dragon*Con. Figured people might get a kick out of them. About 100 of the cards will be stamped with a white ink snowflake - sort of difficult to see, but we thought it would be a cute touch.

I have almost everything to do two Newsflesh cosplays: Becks and Dr. Abbey. All I need is a holster for my gun and Becks is good. Dr. Abbey needs designs put on the t-shirts and a lab coat.
But they both need IDs. Dr. Abbey'll be easy, I can just make something up. But Becks is part of the After the End Times and is a blogger. Has anyone seen someone make an ID for one of the crew? I've got a wallpaper from Mira Grant's site that has George's ID on it. If I can't find anything else, I'll just go ahead and try to recreate it. Just thought I'd check to see if anyone's seen one. TIA.

As you can see in my signature, the Jonathan Strange thing I've been talking about for two years is happening! After October, those are our next costume projects, to be completed next spring.

I've figured out how to do the IDs I need. Now I just need to take appropriate pics for each and make them up. Then, Becks will be done and Dr. Abbey'll just need a little more work.

I may have to do some looking. I may be one of the first to go for these characters!

Saw a nice Coraline today, but she was from the movie not book.

Yeah, true I am also concerned about the other books. What about them? Will there be any option left with the other level of books? This si the question that one will surely think of. But I must appreciate for the efforts that they are coming in front with high knowledge.

I really, really want to try my hand at a Jane Roland costume (from the Temeraire series), but I'm afraid no one will recognize her. I'd also like to do a Kvothe costume (from the Kingkiller Chronicles) at some point.

Well I just finished the first Mortal Instruments book today and OH MY GOD that was a good read! I'd love to cosplay Magnus Bane, except for the fact that I am a scrawny 5'5" white girl with the complexion of a paper towel.

My friend says I should do it anyway though and has agreed to follow me around throwing glitter on me periodically.

Ok screw it, I'm cosplaying him anyway! I'm gonna make his outfit from the first book with the buckle-covered shirt and dress up to go see the movie.

Right now I'm flying through the October Daye series by Seanan McGuire and am loving it. Every time I pick up a new book I'm really tempted to do her look on the cover. Late Eclipses has a great cover.

Has anyone read them aside from me? It's not like I need another costume to work on, but I was just wondering.
