If don't feel like I'm saying anything that hasn't already been said below, but holy crap. This IS Alistair. Excellent, accurate costume, and the likeness is insane.
Insane, I tell you.

That means a lot coming from you, considering how gorgeous your own work is, and the numerous likenesses you've achieved therein!

Thank you much for the kind words, and consider yourself followed.  :meow:

I've worn the costume enough to be aware of this. ;P

But seriously, thank you! I'm glad you like it.

Oh man. You ARE Alistair. Great job on the costume--looks suuuuuuuuuper accurate. And you actually physically look like him, which is rare in cosplay. Nice nice work.

BioWare created an amalgam of factors I could identify with on the character, ranging from physical appearance, to how I normally play characters in fantasy games(sword and shield, goody-two-shoes, "defender" type), to personal beliefs and mannerisms. I certainly felt like I had to make the costume, and seeing so many people agree with me on that fact makes it even more worthwhile, so thank you. The compliments are as appreciated as they are humbling. :meow:

This is incredibly convincing cosplay, precisely (as others have pointed out) you *do* resemble Alister so closely :-) That armor looks really good, you've done the character great justice I think. Kudos to the photographer for the composition as well.

Well, you did a great job there ^_^. The costume is awsome and I bet it took loads of effort and time! I can see that in the result!!. I love how armours look like but they're a hell doing them xDDD. I still remember the time doing my Hawke armour T_T.
You're wellcome!! :3

It was definitely a very labor-intensive costume, and took me a loooong time to construct: [link]

If I had to do it again, there are plenty of things I would change, but all in all, I'm still happy with it.

Glad to hear you like the costume! Thanks for the comment. :meow:

You definitely look the part, and that's a well-made set of armor to go with it! I've seen a few photos of you, but I love seeing artistic cosplay photos like these.

The most frustrating part is never having a photographer to do photos like these. It's one thing to have a picture taken with a nice camera on the convention floor and stumble across it online later. I know how to cleanly Photoshop myself out of the background, drop myself into a setting that looks like it's from the game, and then match the lighting and such. Most of my cosplay photos utilize this technique.

It's another to actually have the photo taken at a convincing location with no compositing involved; just a little color grading.

I'd do it myself, as I have the equipment to get it close, but there's only so much I can do on my own. When I heard Matt Seemann was going to be doing a photoshoot with my Dragon Age group at Dragon*Con, I was thrilled.

So I completely agree with you. I love seeing these artistic cosplay photos as well. ;P

I use that phrase in real life more than I probably should...

Hah, I can totally relate to that! :D Saying things like "I like the shinies!" in Sandal's voice really does not draw the desired responses from most people. More like worried glances. Mental high-fives will have to do... ;)
