Gen Con Pathfinder Cosplay Contest Voting!

Friday, August 12th, 2011

It’s that time again! Though I failed in my sacred duty to announce the Annual Gen Con Pathfinder Cosplay Contest well ahead of time, we still had a number of unbelievably strong contenders this year, and it would be a shame not to crown one of them as the winner—a title which, in addition to bragging rights, confers $50 in store credit. So let’s get voting!

Here’s how it works: Presented below are the photographs (and names, where possible) of this year’s contestants. In the comments thread for this blog, you can pick the ONE winner who you think has the most awesome Pathfinder-related costume and shout out your vote. You have until next Thursday at noon to get in your choices, after which we’ll announce the winner.

Your options are:

Jessica as a Gray Maiden

Leslie as Seoni

Jean-Marc as a paladin of Sarenrae and Luc as a paladin of Iomedae

Eric as our Iconic Alchemist

Bonnie as our Iconic Witch (and Corey as kilted barbarian)

Nani as a Harrower

Natalie (with the metal plates), Nicole the alchemist, Amy the ranger, Megan the pregnant sorcerer, Mike the cleric.

Bonnie the Iconic Witch gets my vote.

Jessica, the Gray Maiden. Great work on the armor!

The Iconic Witch, even though the picture is a bit too blurry to make out the awesome details.

Even though I'm one of the Adventuring Party members, I give my vote to Jean-Marc and Luc as the paladins. Because they're paladins!

(And it doesn't seem right to vote for oneself!)

I vote for Jessica as the Gray Maiden! Awesome!

I'll add my vote for Jesscia as her Grey Maiden costume is just awesome.

Yep, that is awesome, and that single staring eye is chilling -- even *I*, a fiendish Chelaxian dwarf, feel a bit uneasy and intimidated! So my vote goes definitely to Jessica.

Jessica - Gray Maiden, but the Iconic Witch and Adventuring party were both awesome!

I think the iconic witch is the single most faithful and detailed costume, so it gets my vote.

I agree -- put my vote down for Bonnie as the iconic witch.

Jessica as a Grey Maiden is a close second.

My vote is for Bonnie, as Feiya.

A really tough vote for me. I'm having a hard time choosing between Jessica as Gray Maiden and Bonnie as the Witch.

I think.... I'm going to have to go with... Jessica as the Gray Maiden.

I love all the little details on the Witch costume, it looks very elaborate, but I still think the Gray Maiden gets it.

My suggestion to Bonnie the witch is to keep your costume though, it could be a contender for my vote next year. I doubt Jessica will want to wear the Gray Maiden costume next year though, I bet it was hot under that helmet.

Consider me wowed....Jessica as a Gray Maiden gets my vote!

I go for the sorceress. The witch costume has excellent detail and looks awesome, but is ultimately not very complex to compose (since many of the parts are modern clothing you can buy at hot's also part of why you see her cosplayed so much) or hard to wear. The gray maiden was also very impressive, but given that she's said she couldn't wear it for more than an hour or two means it's not really a functional costume. It might seem nit picky, but the idea behind cosplay often is to build something actually wear-able. Very pretty none the less.

The sorceress managed enthusiasm, an outfit whose major pieces could not just be picked up off the rack, involved well-done body paint and was functional to wear all day long.

I vote for the adventuring party. Nice work!

I'm gonna vote for the witch. The gray maiden is also pretty awesome.

Casting my vote for Jessica the Grey Maiden.

Hmm, some realy tough choices here. Some really nice costumes here.

I'll go with Bonnie the Iconic Witch.

There are a few really good costumes so that it is hard to chose which is the best. It comes down to two in mind & I give a shout out to Bonnie as the iconic witch, but Jessica as the Gray Maiden gets my vote. Give Bonnie a gift certificate as well if you can for all her hard work. Thanks for the great work on your costumes, the TLC you put into them really shines through!

Jessica as a Gray Maiden

I wish Jessica as the grey maiden would smile! That would be enough to push her to the top! C'mon this should be fun!

Just kidding of course. :)
Nicole as the Alchemist,
Though Amy the Ranger, Jessica as the Grey Maiden and Natalie (with plates) are a very close second

Special kudos to (in no particular order:) Naomi, Bonnie, Leslie, Jean-Marc, Luc, Eric, Bonnie, Corey, Nani, Megan and Mike. Nice job and well done all of you.

I'm voting for Bonnie as well, but don't know if I can since I helped build the costume.

I hate that her pic is blurry so I've included links to clearer ones if that's okay...

nearly nsfwwhatever that stands for :)


It's an honor to be part of the contest, and it was great to meet the artist Wayne Reynolds at Gencon (and have him sign the costume). We'll see you next year.

The Grey Maiden Jessica, she's my pick to win.

But everyone looks good!

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Are there any better pics of Leslie as Seoni? Being as I've made a Seoni outfit before, I'd be interested to see what sort of design choices she made. It's very difficult to make out the details in that pic.

Right now, my votes would have to be:

#1)- Bonnie as Feiya
#2)- Jessica as the Grey Maiden
#3)- Leslie as Seoni

While I like the adventuring party, I don't recognize any of them as specifically 'Pathfinder' in nature so I can't really consider them as being 'cosplays'. While I've done this myself at cons, it seems like they simply decided to wear their ren faire costumes. That's still a valid (and expensive) form of costuming, it's just not what most folks would consider cosplay (i.e. trying to recreate an established character).

The Gray Maiden is just fantastic.

Bonnie. The attention to detail makes her nearly a dead ringer for the iconic witch. That took some time and effort!

They're ALL great, though! 3 cheers!
