Sometimes I really enjoy cosplaying as the villain! Winnowill is one crazy chick. She is the big baddy of Wendi and Richard Pini’s comic series, Elfquest. This costume was a last minute decision to make and wear. It took me about a week to throw the entire thing together, with most of it focused on the wig. This was also my first endeavor making something with faux fur, and I wasn’t prepared for the fur-splosion. Anyone who has ever worked with faux fur knows that you’ll find that stuff even years later! My body is painted white, which took about 4 hours unfortunately, and we shot these photos before heading over to San Diego Comic Con for a quick circuit around the convention floor to see if anybody would recognize me! While obscure, there were still some fans, which really made my day because I love to geek out!
