Greetings, DL Forum!
I shan't bore you with backstory, suffice it to say that I've been through a tough time, put on a bunch of weight, etc. Needing a project to pull me out of my doldrums, I've finally decided to do a Raistlin Cosplay... only about 15 years after first reading the books!
Not just any Cosplay, though... I'm trying to make it as accurate to the source material as possible, so I turn to you fans on the forum for any advice you'd care to give. I'll update periodically with progress, and I'll drop some pictures in my next post. I would also say, if anyone else wants to post about their own Cosplays, either pictures or looking for advice, that's fine with me. If this thread turns into a bunch of peeps obsessing over costume details, so much the better!
So, to kick things off, here's a link to my Deviantart gallery showing the building of my Staff of Magius... I'm not 100% happy with it, but my friends have been cooing over it, so at least it impresses the peasants!
