Alistair by the Stream by mrbob0822 Alistair by the Stream by mrbob0822
Oh boy, such a creative title...

I haven't updated my DeviantArt with anything in a while, so the other day I was browsing through the photos my friend Maggie had taken at the Bristol Renaissance Faire last summer.

I decided to pull myself out of one and plop me into another setting.

Herpaderp!

Alistair is by far my favorite character in DA Origins. I'm really impressed how similar you look. I love this picture! Clap

I didnt notice it was photoshopped until I read you said so o.o
The only thing that gives it away is your left boot, like you said in a comment, everything else is great!

Yeah, the more I look at it, the more I dislike my 'Shop job, but I'm happy to hear you like it! I should really go out into the woods with some friends and get some ACTUAL photos, but I'm the photographer of the group, which makes it difficult.

Thanks for droppin' by! :meow:

what, no! It's just a little detail. If it wasnt for that I wouldnt have known it was photoshop. The lightning is perfect, I dont know if it's coincidental or you twitched it a bit but the light source is in the same place for you and your environment so that makes it really convincing.
Although you Should go out to the real woods :D

No worries. I'm just overly critical of my own work. It's just hard making something work in post without having planned it to be a composite from the get-go, which is totally why a planned photo-shoot would go better.

I would not have guessed that this is photoshopped; you did a great job at making it look real!

D'aww, thank you for the say-so! I'm glad it's fairly convincing. There are parts of it that still nag me, but I didn't feel like playing with them anymore(my left boot for example).

*squee* Just found this pic featured on the facebook page "Sexy Cosplay Guys" and, well, I agree! Thought, too, you'd want to know, since you now likely have more fangirls.

Ha ha ha. I wouldn't have even known where to start to make up a location, and if you would have tried to look it up, that would have been a disappointment to find.

Here's the original photo: [link]

I-I can't believe it... I FOUND AN ALISTAIR COSPLAYER! And not only that, an amazing one! :'D I'm so happy right now you don't even know. I wish you would go to some anime conventions in WA, because then I would hug you so hard you don't even know!

I'm one of a few.

Of the ones I'm aware of, there's one in Alaska: [link]

This one from the UK: [link]

This one from Italy: [link]

This one, who I can't seem to track down(she used to be on cosplay.com, but not anymore(the link is to a photo of her)): [link]

This little guy(who is so adorable): [link]

And a friend of mine in the UK who I'm advising on his costume, which is coming together in the next few weeks: [link]


So I'm not the only one out there, but I'm happy you like my costume. I've no plans to bring the costume to the west coast any time soon, although I'd eventually love to make it out to San Diego for Comic Con, but that's akin to a pipe dream at this point.

Thanks for commenting and faving! :aww:

Oh, wow, I actually had no idea there were so many! XD I've tried searching for cosplayers of him before but my efforts were fruitless. :no:

Ahh, that's too bad! Although I met a lady at Sakura-Con who is going as him for Aki-Con, so not all is lost. :D

Silliness aside, I'm glad you liked the costume. That's a pretty fine lookin' Isabela cosplay you've got there as well. :meow:

You are kidding right? You make a fantastic Alistair, and I'm honestly genuinely surprised you don't have a million fangirls.

And thankyou! that was my old Isabela though, it has currently been completely overhauled and re-done, more accurately ^^,

D'awwwwww, shucks. :aww: I'm a huge fan of the ol' doofus myself, so it's always nice to hear when others, especially fans, tell me I faithfully represented the guy and further justifies the time, effort, and research that went into building the costume.

And I'm no stranger to costume overhauls. I'm looking forward to seeing the updates! :+devwatch:

It's still not to the point where I'd call it "complete" per-se(I'm missing elbow and knee pads, the bicep plates, need new boots, and need to make some serious tweaks to the strap system on my belt to keep things from falling apart), but even so, I never track my hours on a project like this. I would cry thinking of how many hours of my life I lost getting cardboard, hot glue, and foam to look like metal and leather.

If you're interested, you can look at the build and see how big the project was. I made a tutorial of sorts here: [link]
