Awesome costume Jodi!

+1! Jodi haz got Epic!(tm) skillz in costume crafting.

Grand Lodge

Wait... THAT is Jodi? THE Jodi?

SKR is soooooo unworthy! lol :)

You know I would have thought Amiri would have been a nigh impossible iconic to represent, but Jodi does an AWESOME job. Far far better than what I would have expected from ANYONE honestly.

and yeah Epic (tm) Skillz in costuming! That took some time and a LOT of work.

Grand Lodge

Sorry, but I think you're all wrong. There will have to be a new category above epic for that costume!


I think Jodi makes a better Amiri than the one in the illustrations.

Here's an idea, if someone goes as the Space-Amiri (a.k.a Amirella/Barbamiri) from the GMG, they'd be dressed up as Amiri dressed up as someone else...

Wow, what an amazing costume!


Oh...the hotness...

Amiri looks good as well :)

Shadow Lodge

All she needs is an 8-foot long sword.

She looks cuter as Amiri than Jenny does as Seoni.

Just sayin'.

Yes, but with Amiri you have to be worried about getting on the wrong side of the CRAZY/HOT dividing line! :) (Let's see who gets that quote!)


I think it's a very positive thing that just attractive and talented women have chosen to portray iconic Pathfinder RPG characters. And I really, really look forward to girls cosplaying at the Half-Orc Inquisitor...

Shadow Lodge

So, you spent how much and how long to craft that outfit, and you didn't make the sword? Seriously? Please tell us you just don't have it in the pic but you did make it... :)

I'm not sure GenCon would allow a "weapon" inside, no matter how fake or nerf-swordy it is. I honestly don't know the GenCon rules, but maybe that's why.

One of the suggestions made in the Chatroom would have been to make SKR dress up as her sword. Which would have been hilarious.

Liberty's Edge

Awesome costume Jodi, you look great.

Sean, you are one lucky dude.

Scarab Sages

As far as I know, a sword *was* made, but they had no real way to transport it. Costume looks amazing Jodi! Come by Society HQ next time, I want a picture!

Monte Cook looks like the Dr. from Scrubs.

They have foam-sword vendors (and, at least when I went last year, fake sparring matches using those foam swords) so I imagine obviously fake costume weapons are allowed.

But sword or no sword, that is one heck of a costume. Fantastic work.

(I don't know what it says about me, but I'm particularly impressed by the hair. It takes a lot of work, and a lot of hair spray, to get it that barbaric-looking. Well done.)

We were running out of time, and I decided to not bring the sword rather than bringing a not-quite-ready-for-viewing sword.

Also, her costume took up two extra suitcases (at $20 each), and we didn't feel like bringing a third extra suitcase....

Shadow Lodge

Yeah, they allow swords. I forget how many armed Links and Bleach characters I saw.


I think Monte could be an evil genius. He has the facial expression down. So he's got that going for him...which is nice.

I've been working on that. Turns out, it's not a feat, it's a skill. You have to put a lot of ranks into it to get good.

But under PF rules, you would get a +3 bonus for it being a class skill ;)

Pictures ! (warning: huge)

Amiri in the Paizo booth.

Three iconics outside the paizo room.

Amiri has always been my favorite iconic, and I was fearing we'd have some Italian (nothing wrong with my ancestry at all) woman pouring out of her straps. Jodi does a fandamtastic job of looking the part.

As for my second fave, I'm torn betwixt the oracle and Seoni.

Dark Archive

Yay pictures! Thanks for posting things--keep it up! I want as many as I can get haha. The sword was one of those things that I didn't "have" to have. We had it about half way finished, or more than that and realized that 1) We would have to be working on it in the hotel room 2) We'd have to check an extra back for $20 or $30 when we already had two to check and 3) GenCon may have been weird about me having it in the first place...so it was best to just not worry too much about it and wait until next convention that we go to :o). And btw, I have a new term now, "Fandamtastic." HAHA! :oD

Jodi,

Great costume and nice talking with you at GenCon. :)

I think I may finally be recovering from those kidney shots that Amiri gave me in the PFS HQ area. I was always warned not to upset a barbarian...

Next year, this is my only stupid promise this year...my resolution is that I'll go to Gencon '11.

And I'll even try to grow my hair out a bit and if there is anyone in the costuming, someone wanna help an Eando Kline fan? That boy needs representation!
