The Queen of the Black Puddle Cosplay

 


Chelphie Cosplay looks wonderful in this obscure, but super awesome and unique cosplay of The Queen of the Black Puddle from Courage the Cowardly Dog! Here's what she had to say..

"This past October I found my con season winding down and I usually make my last big cosplay of the year coincide with what I want to wear for Halloween. This time I opted for nostalgia, because who doesn't love fondly remembering the era of simpler childhood years? I loved Courage the Cowardly Dog when it was on TV and for the longest time I forgot it had any female villains, until I was working on another cosplay and decided to re-watch the show and suddenly KNEW I had to make The Queen of the Black Puddle. I mean, a literal man-eating sea witch with hair big and bright enough to give a drag queen serious envy? That's right up my alley!

This was one of the only cosplays I've ever commissioned, with the base dress being made by Coquetry Clothing, and then I added details like the purple lining on the sleeves, the Venetian lace on the bodice, and the red and gold medallion. The tiara is craft foam with iridescent black glitter added and the wig is two 40" wigs purchased on eBay and sewn/glued together, teased to infinity and beyond, with some purple tissue paper for stuffing/height. I do the bodypaint myself and used Mehron Paradise AQ in "Light Blue".

It's a fun cosplay, despite how obscure it is, but I love seeing the excitement/amazement on the faces of those that do recognize it! It's also a little bit cursed, because I've only had opportunity to wear it three times and two of those times (months apart) I got a flat tire. "

Supergirl Cosplay

 


Kouki-Li Cosplay and Photography looks amazing as Supergirl! These stunning photos were taken by Christina Marchioni Photography and here's what she had to say...

"We had this shoot planned for a couple weeks and the weather on the day of the shoot was perfect. Kouki-Li absolutely rocked her Supergirl cosplay. We found an awesome location in the center of the city which gave it an urban feel. It's awesome to see the progress between both our skill-sets since our last shoot together. Kouki-Li is great to work with and the shoot was so much fun! The photos turned out better than I anticipated and I'm excited to share them with everyone!"

Domino Cosplay

 


Huntress Crafts and Cosplay looks amazing as Domino from Marvel Comics! Here's what she had to say...

"Luck be a lady! Domino is one of my favorite cosplays because she really speaks to me as a strong female character. Her distinctive characteristics and unique makeup make her easily recognizable, and who doesn't love walking around carrying a bunch of guns?! The most difficult part of this cosplay is the body paint from the chest up, which takes me about 2.5 hours to put on. However difficult it is, the makeup is still my favorite part of this cosplay. It's positively worth the effort when you get to walk around as -in my opinion- one of the most under-rated Marvel Comics characters to date. I will keep cosplaying Neena Thurman until she gets the recognition she deserves! :) Now, I just need to find myself a Deadpool..."

Dragon Age Group Cosplay

 


This super epic Dragon Age group cosplay features the amazing cosplayers Sarah Cain Cosplay as The Inquisitor, Laura of JessoLaurus Rex as Cassandra, Ginny DiGuiseppi as Josephine, Charles DeGrooty as Morrigan and Kristin Dalleske as Yavana! Here's what they said about it...

"When Laura from JessoLaurus Rex and her boyfriend decided to Cosplay Cassandra and The Iron Bull, they pulled their friends together to make an excellent group. The ladies of the this group really went all out with detail and had an amazing experience cosplaying together. Ginny DiGuiseppi who did an incredible Josephine said, "We started planning it pretty last-minute for Denver Comic Con, giving ourselves just three weeks to put it all together. The ladies were still working on their costumes the night before the Con. We were excited about the cosplays, but we had no idea that the reaction would be so strong at the convention. We couldn't make it ten feet without getting stopped for another dozen photos. What we did really resonated with other Dragon Age players, and none of us had ever had so much fun cosplaying at a convention!"

Geek Girl Lady Di Cosplay look stunning modelling in her Drogo from Game of Thrones themed lingerie shoot! These beautiful boudoir photos were shot by our talented photographer Geek Girl Ailes Noires! Also be sure to check out the Daenerys & Drogo lingerie photos! Here's what Lady Di had to say...

"This was the first time I did a boudoir shoot and I was so nervous. I've always been self conscious and had trouble being confident in my appearance. But since I've started cosplaying, I've found myself getting more comfortable with my body and growing to love how I look. I feel so much more confident in my own skin and I hope to help others feel the same way!"
