6th Annual Gen Con Costume Contest Voting!

Friday, August 30, 2013

Over the course of the last two weeks most of the staff have trickled back into the offices from Ge Con, sharing tales of great times, great people, and in some cases also sharing the con crud. As an avid cosplayer I have a soft spot for the stories my coworkers tell of the cosplayers they meet at conventions, especially at Gen Con. Don't hesitate in knowing that we love the work you do as much as you love ours. Your costumes this year were incredible, and you'd be proud to hear just how excited some of the Paizo staff were when talking about meeting you.

For anyone who hasn't voted in the costume contest before, the rules are simple. We have pictures of the Pathfinder cosplayers who dropped by our booth presented below and its up to you, our fans, to decide a crowd favorite. Once you determine your favorite Pathfinder portrayal select them on the poll and click submit. Voting ends Tuesday at 1:00 PM Pacific time. At that point we'll tally up the results and determine this years winner and recipient of $50.00 in Paizo store credit!

We present to you this years participants!

6th Annual GenCon Costume Contest!


This poll closed Sep 3, 2013.

Dates and times displayed above are in the US/Pacific time zone.


All very nice, but the one that stood out to me is the Valeros picture as most accurate to the art. Well done everyone!


Nice!
Love the studded leather on Shalelo & the halfling paladin(?) is awesome too :)

Shelyn


Too bad no one got a pic of the lady dressed like Lirianne (the iconic Gunslinger) that Mike Brock and I spoke to in front of HQ. Her costume was fantastic.


I'd vote for Amiri

Well i like the valeros and seoni

Silver Crusade

Valeros is SPOT ON!

Silver Crusade

I remember a Fraya too. It may have been Temmith though, I was only half paying attention as her and a Valeros walked by. I was about to get killed by a bulette at the time...

In the future, be sure to send anyone cosplaying Pathfinder characters to the Paizo booth so they can participate in the annual costume contest. I wish I'd seen that costume!

The Exchange

is that a Kitsune or a Catfolk I see in the adventuring party? :)

I am impressed by all of the cosplayers pictured here, very nice work. I have to vote for Seoni and Valeros.

Big fan of the Shalelu costume! Great color choices!

Kitsune, you can see the tail if you look. and a Fox's tail is pretty distinctive.


I honestly want to give it to the iconic fighter but sadly he is just & friend.

Voted for Valeros. However, the Shelyn certainly does justice to the eternal rose.

I agree with you. it is unfortunate that he is just "& friend" as he is so much more then that. We only just gave the Paizo crew my username and email as we tend to buy from the website through my account.

This is Jay, my fiance. He did the chainmaile, both his swords, and helped me form his armor. My costume is admittedly not as good as his as we spent at least 2 months working on his alone. If we did win (and it looks like we have some stiff competition!), the prize would be a joint purchase between us, rest assured.

Wow, great jobs by everyone!!


I vote for Shelyn.


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

Valeros.

Liberty's Edge

Of course Shelyn :-)

All of you look awesome, but I got to give it to Helene. I think she definitely got the small details of Sheila's costume down. I must admit though that Helene's smiling a little too much for Sheila. (Just kidding, of course.) Tell Helene I said, "Great job," Jack!


Amiri all the way, for reelz. You see that sword? How can you say no?

I really like the goblin, but who's the guy in green standing next to him and holding a club?

:P

Many great jobs here, it was hard to pick.


Awesome costumes! I think that Val & Seoni, and Shelyn were my favorites here :)

I talked to that group and took their picture, so I know that it's a catfolk.


Wow. All of these are great, but I can't choose between Amiri, Shelyn, or Seoni and Valeros. Amiri has that amazing sword, Valeros is dead on, and the Shelyn costume is also fantastic.


I have to go with Shiela Heidmarch. Really good job!


Nice costumes all around, but I gotta give it up for Valeros, great job.

Lantern Lodge

Have to go with Valeros, the armor is spot on and extra credit for having the actual hair in the proper style. The long sword proportions don't seem right (compared to the real life article) but aren't far off from the art.

Runner up in my opinion is probably the Shelyn, a bold move to attempt the goddess of beauty though she's a little too thin and a bit too conservative, compared to the art. Both understandably of course.

Roger Wilco. I know Mike gave one of her friends his email because she was inquiring about the process of becoming a venture officer. If she emailed Mike, then maybe this friend will have some photos. My phone was screwed up and that's why I didn't take any pictures.

I just finished the blog a bit ago and we should have it live in the near future. I got caught up in the post GenCon crunch and time went past faster than I had hoped. Thanks for your patience!
