Red Dragon, unfortunately for your nephew, our mage is married.
You all did excellent work. Is everybody a DQ fan in the photo, or did you hand off art-work and they came up with their own costumes? Or was this a case where you drafted all the clothes and your friends were the models?
Thank you! Only the Priest and I are really Dragon Quest fans. My Priest was also my Flora/Nera when I did Bianca before! Everyone else is at least a JRPG fan or had at least dabbled in the games a little. I showed them all the artwork that exists and they all made their own outfits!
I'm so sad that I didn't get to go to Fanime! I would love to go sometime. At least I happened to see the pictures of your group.
You're also lucky that you have a group of friends to do Dragon Quest cosplay with lol. I live over in Los Angeles and have yet to really do any Dragon Quest cosplay, but I want to rope some friends into it. I have the stuff for a Terry cosplay from Dragon Quest Monsters, but not sure what con I would bring it too. One of the guys I've met through cosplay in Los Angeles is also a big Dragon Quest fan, but to my knowledge, he's never cosplayed anything from Dragon Quest either. I think two years ago, I spotted a kid cosplaying the Hero from DQ8 at Anime Expo.
One of these days I'd love to cosplay the male Hero/Erdrick from III and it would be a dream to get an entire group of both the male and female characters.
