Lessa of Dragonriders of Pern
view kell's Cosplay Lab profile
Hours to Make: < 5
First worn at: Dragoncon 2004
Inspiration: My mom got me into the Pern books, and since my mom was going with me to Dragoncon and Anne McCaffrey was going to be there, I decided to do a Lessa costume.
Favorite Aspect: People's reactions... haha this one guy goes, "That's Lessa - she's got that nasty look on her face!" It was hard trying to stay in character during the contest, I wanted to smile!
Least Favorite Aspect: It's SO HOT. Also, no references... I went by the standard dragonrider description from one of the books - any images I could find of Lessa didn't have her in anything like that for some reason. Oh well.
Easiest Task: Everything really... it was all pretty simple to make.
Hardest Task: I guess sewing the fabric on the goggles.
