Vote on the Costume Contest!

Thursday, August 12, 2010

We’re back from Gen Con, and in addition to the usual scramble to meet deadlines and recovery from horrifying illnesses contracted by shaking hands with approximately ten bajillion people, that means it’s time for everyone to vote on the contestants in the Third Annual Gen Con Pathfinder Cosplay Contest!

We had an extraordinary number of contestants this year, and all of them did bang-up jobs! Yet only one can be the official winner of the grand prize (both a pile of Paizo store credit and bragging rights), which is where you come in. At the bottom of this blog, you’ll see a link for comments. Sound off and place your vote for the best costume in that thread. You have until the end of the weekend to make your selection. On Monday morning, we’ll tally all the votes, and announce the official winner in a blog post next week.

Ready? Here are this year’s fine contestants, in no particular order:

Lora as Feiya, the iconic witch. Jason as Damiel, the iconic alchemist.
2009 contest champion Kelly as Harsk, the iconic ranger. (Maybe he’s a little tall for a dwarf, but how can you say no to a hand-made crossbow and his adorable animal companion, Biter?) Blake as Nethys.
David as a paladin of Iomedae. Corienne as a Tien monk.
2008 contest champion Tiffany as the Harrower from the campaign setting hardcover. (You can’t see her wayfinder here, but it came with its own ioun stone!) Jean-Marc with his adventurer’s sash from Seekers of Secrets.
Noel as Trifaccia from Pathfinder Adventure Path #12. Look out, he's got a whip! Honorable Mention: Jodi as Amiri, the iconic barbarian, who despite her amazing costume has removed herself from the running, on account of already being Sean Reynolds' girlfriend (and isn't that prize enough?).

So what are you waiting for? Cast your votes now!

I can't vote but I wanted to give Tiffany props for getting this whole crazy ball rolling. I'm never going to forget her coming up to James and me at Gen Con in 2008 and being like "Hi! I'm a cleric of Desna" and our jaws hitting the floor. That was the best!

Thanks, Wes! I remember thinking, "Oh gosh! I hope they don't think I'm weird or creepy!"

I'm not going to vote, but I just wanted to tell everyone how awesome their costumes are. The detail on Lora's is amazing! And I love that Harsk even has his animal companion.

Great job everyone! I hope there are even more next year.

It's tough to choose, but I think Lora as Feiya get's my vote.

Tough choice, but I'll go for Tiffany as the Harrower.

Lora as Feiya, the iconic witch

Sovereign Court

Jason as Damiel looked good.

Grand Lodge

My Vote: Lora as Feiya, the iconic witch.

It was a stunning costume, great accessories. Plus, she was GMing while wearing it. I kept hoping I'd get put at her table, but alas... :)

To everyone pictured above, amazing costumes. But since I can only choose one, I'll go with Jason as Damiel, the iconic alchemist.

Silver Crusade

Freya & then the Harrower

excellent costumes on all thou!!

Shadow Lodge

Wow, tough tough call this year. It's really a toss up between three of them for me but I think I'm going to go with Tiffany, I love the harrower costume.

Honorable mention to the Feiya, Damiel, and Harsk costumes... hell all of them were awesome!!

Liberty's Edge

I have to go with Lora the Witch. Nice detailing and presentation.

Blake as Nethys.

My mistress Desna told to me to vote for her beloved child, so my vote goes to Tiffany the Harrower.

Lot's of good entries, but I like Blake as Nethys.

Jason as Damiel

I'm all about the Feiya the Witch. Although Damiel comes in a close second!

Liberty's Edge

Tiffany as the Harrower

I would vote for Jodi whose costume is amazing; but seeing as how she removed herself from the competition-->

Vote for: Jason
Hon. Mention to Tiffany.

Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

This is why this is such a great community.

Really difficult to choose this year.

I'm going to have to go with Lora for the win and Jason as honorable mention.

I'm voting for Noel's costume, I'm always a fan of gold :)

Besides, the mask looks sweet.

Jean-Marc, love the gloves!

I'm voting for Lora as Feiya. The costume is dead on and whe carries the look off perfectly!

Silver Crusade

My vote goes for Lora as Feiya, Human Witch

Jason as Damiel

RPG Superstar 2010 Top 32

Wow, they're all great. I've gotta go with Lora as Feiya. Just absolutely spot-on.

Grand Lodge



Sure I can't vote five times? Isn't that the American way? :)

Okay okay... one vote...

Tiffany as the Harrower. Spot on.

Man, that's what I call a tough decision. Gotta give it to Lora, though.

The Exchange

I gotta go with Lora as Feiya, she simply looks great in that costume.

Lora as Feiya hands down

Sovereign Court

Perhaps in the future you guys should have separate men's and women's categories? King and Queen Pathfinders?

Sovereign Court Wayfinder, PaizoCon Founder

Lora as Feiya....very, VERY good re-creation.

Lora as Feiya

The Exchange

my vote goes to Lora as Feiya, the iconic witch. It has nothing to do with a fortune's hex bribe, honest.


You know if Jodi hadn't taken herself out of the running, she's my first choice. (Even if she is shorter than I expected...)

That being said, my choice is Lora, as Feiya the Witch.

Pathfinder Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

I'm gonna throw in a vote for Jason as Damiel. All are fantastic though. Here's hoping I make it out to Gen Con one of these years!

Liberty's Edge

My vote: Lora as Feiya.

She was just fantastic, even got the pose right. While I loved the Amiri cosplay (Amiri FTW!), even if she were in the running, I would have voted for Lora over Jodi. Mainly because Jodi didn't have the ginormous sword. =3

Lora as Feiya, Human Witch, all the way. SHe's Awesome!

Dark Archive

Casting my vote for Lora, but great job by everyone!

Yup. Lora as Feiya, the iconic Witch definitely takes it for me, but the alchemist is also quite good.

I would vote for Lora as Freiya, with a close second being Jason as Damiel

I vote for Lora as Feiya, the iconic witch.

I also suggest that Jodi get the original print of the art from page 56 of Pathfinder 36.

I assume that's Sean at the bottom of the throne ;)

My vote goes to Lora as Feiya, the Iconic Witch

Scarab Sages Silver Crescent Publishing

I'd have to go with Lora as Feiya. The accessories are what did it I think. She seems to have ALOT of extras.

And Sean... well done my friend... well done.

Jodi as Amiri is the best.

That being said, my vote would have to go to Lora as Feiya.

Usually in costume contests, there's a few lame ones, but I sincerely think they're all really good!

I vote for Jodi.


I vote for Lora.

Jason as Damiel, cause I'd like one of those costumes for myself!

Tiffany as the Harrower takes a second.

though choice, but...: Jason as Damiel


I'm a sucker for alchemists, but even without that bias it would be Jason as Damiel, the iconic alchemist.

I vote for Lora as Feiya, the iconic witch.

Dark Archive

My Vote is Tiffany, sometimes simple just works best.

Then there would be Kelly as one of only two I could correctly guess without reading, and Finally, Lora, who is pretty damned spot on, but just a bit too complex for me, too many bits and bobs.
