Gallery: The Raven Queen (2014)

Every Friday I play Dungeons and Dragons. It’s always a good time and  enjoy making my character’s back story and designing their appearances. As such, I wanted to do a tribute cosplay to one of my favorite 4e goddesses: the Raven Queen- Goddess of Death. There are not many good references of her so I made my own design using inspiration from Pinterest. The hardest part was probably figuring out how to do the feathers (since I don’t use real ones for ethical reasons). I have a tutorial elsewhere in my blog covering how to make the paper faux feathers seen in the headdress for anyone who shares to concerns of using real feathers. Check it out HERE! The second hardest part was just trying to find the time to make this cosplay. The whole thing was completed in less than a month. I am less than satisfied with the result and probably won’t be bringing this one to further conventions, but I did get some nice shots of it.

I made a costume based on Dungeons and Dragons 4e goddess of death, the Raven Queen! There really aren’t many pictures of her out there so I had to come up with my own design. She’s already in the retired stage so as a farewell, I’m going to post a gallery including many of the lovely pictures taken at Long Beach Comic Con by one of my favorite photographers: Thach Roof Photography!

    1. The wings are made of a few layers of black 2mm foam cut into shape and glued together with a bit of wire to bend them into shape. The shoulder feather are black pleather fabric layered over a bit of worbla to keep the shape of the shoulder pad! Hope that helps :)
