Alright, I admit it, I'm a warCRACK head. And decided to dress up as my night elf for conventions (yeah...i'm geeky) anyway, I have the make-up figured out, even have a place to get the super long elf ears, but the costume itself, is my problem. Any ideas on good paterns for this? Here are some screenshots of my character.









I have a tabard pattern here, thanks to a patern my hubby bought for his ren faire costume, the deer's going to be fun though. I was thinking of just sculpting styrofome, and covering it with fabric for the shoulders (the small purple ones, not the huge ones that look kind of like wood) Everything is supposed to be leather, but i was toying with the idea of vinyl that looks like leather, and some faux suede. My only problem after that, is i'm built more like this:



but there isn't much i can do about that...and i can deal with the fact that i'm gonna look like a dwarf dressed up like a night elf...

LOL I love WoW and I love that you wanna dress up as a NE and I LOVE that you say you're built liek a dwarf because so am I LOL but unfortunately I have no idea where you can find patterns for that.  What conventions are you going to btw?  Did you go to Blizzcon and do you plan on going this year?

I'd suggest screen printing the deer's head on your fabric, not sure about the rest. Remember to weather and age your costume too!

Can i ask what you're doing for make up? I've been wanting to cosplay a night elf for a while, but i'm not sure what to use to turn myself purple. I don't want to buy costume make up that's going to rub off my skin where the costume sits, and i'd use liquid latex body paint, but i'm worried about putting it on my face, around my eyes.
