[COS] Polgara the Sorceress

So this is how my brain works: What? The costume you’ve been working on for ages isn’t coming together and now you’ve got a gaping hole in your costume lineup for a con in a week and a half?  Quick! Run to the fabric store, buy a bunch of fabric, and make a pretty dress and cosplay as one of your favorite book characters even though no one will recognize you!

I’ve been having a love affair with the Belgariad books by David Eddings since I was 10 or 11 years old and I still really want to be Polgara when I grow up.  For Katsucon, I decided to just go for it and make a dress like she would’ve worn in the books.

Thank you to Anna for the photography and going out in the cold with me!  I look forward to maybe taking pictures in this dress again now that it’s a little warmer.
