While Emerys is still gloating over his second-place win, I thought it would be the perfect time to show off the work of an amazingly talented Champion, Marina! She sifted through Twelve Dancing Princesses and created an incredibly accurate Quinn outfit!
Marina (Instagram Dancefully) has the belt quiver, the bow, the arm guards, the hair, the clothes–she really nailed our girl Quinn! (Marina is actually wearing a wig she braided–I knew that when she sent me the photos because she asked about hair color, and I was STILL thought it was her real hair when I first saw the shots!)
Also mad props to her for running around a forest. That is not as easy as it looks–I’ve done a lot of unusual things for the sake of testing out scenes in real life (ie: running in a dress in snow, timing myself to see how long I can carry a good-sized male cat, etc) and running in a forest is near the top of my list of things that are no fun because of the frequency in which you get a branch in the face. Though it looks like Marina has Quinn’s athleticism so I bet she fared a lot better than me! 😉
My favorite photo though, is the one below, as it has Emerys in it. 😉
While Marina made the costume and really brought Quinn’s character to life, the crazy talented photographer is Natisha of Guardian Memories Studios (Facebook link or Instagram Link). Natisha also used her photoshop magic to add in our boy Emerys!
Marina is working on Rakel from The Snow Queen books next, and I can’t wait to see how she pulls it off! 😀
What do you think, Champions? And have you ever dressed up as a book/movie character? (For fun, Halloween, a convention, etc?)
