Venka from Elfquest

This was a fast costume I made the week before Comic Con. It’s been on my list forever as I’ve been an Elfquest fan since high school. I actually started out making Venka’s outfit from when she was growing up, but found that it looked rather odd on me so I switched costumes at the last minute to one later in the timeline. The addition of the bolero coat made the whole ensemble looked much better on me.

I got recognized by four people while walking around which totally made my day and I went to see Wendy and Richard Pini who were totally awesome.
