Discord cosplay by lainwiththedevil Discord cosplay by lainwiththedevil
I went as Discord to Bronycon 2012, with my sister ~cyclone91 who went as Twilight Sparkle/Chysalis disguised as Cadence. She helped with all the sewing/making the claw out of antique leather glove and claws, I gathered the materials for the whole outfit together and created the antlers using a real antler and melted wax for the other one/painted them with oils. Its a pity you cannot see the rest of the costume here, but more uploads soon should show it better off. We had a lot of fun, we even got to be in the costume contest and the Brony documentary, it was so cool to see so many creative people together in one place! Btw in case you can't see it, my nametag which was purposely written on upside down says 'John Luke Picard'...cos, yknow, Q and all...John Delancie...yeah. I'm an uber-dork now, aren't I? :P

UPDATE: Btw, I also made a pair of genuine Kaa-style hypnotism eyes for this costume as well. They were very cool in my opinion, and believe it or not completely see-thru. But due to self-conciousness, and better visibilty needs in dim lighting and crowds, I decided to forgo them. I actually wore them a few times for a short while hidden under the glasses you see here, so I could get the special opportunity maybe to 'flash' a person taking my picture or a friend. But then I realized just how many news crews were strutting around, and I decided I already looked goofy enough. My fears were not unwarranted. This photo has poor resolution quality, because it was one of a couple images that actually landed in an online article of Newsday.

Yes and no- one half is a real deer antler I bought at a taxidermy shop, i painted that. The other I constructed out of melted plastic and foil, I sculpted the base, my friend melted the plastic and sculpted the form attached to a headband I painted black. Then I painted the hardened piece after it dried with oil paint.

I want to cosplay as Discord, but I just don't have the money for the materials.

well thats ok, there are no rules to cosplay/ Frankly, I am a cheapskate myself and a lot of the stuff i used here was mostly crap you can get for cheap in the dollar store and Goodwill! I didn't spend very much at all. I think around 27 to 30 dollars, due to some booboos we made using other types of material we accidentally made mistakes with and wound up wasted....but it wasn't a large deal, we only spent like 5 bucks on the craft stuff. You can be creative and think of MANY ways to interpret a character! You dont need to be 100% accurate to every detail in the show. Make your OWN style or persona up! Dig around in the closet or attic. Put some imagination into things you already got lying at home! Some good inspiration sources are rainy day craft books and Parenting magazines, especially the Halloween issues, for cheap as hell costume ideas you can make from simple boring things like craft paper, coat hangers and some felt. A bit of creative thinking outside the box can go a HUGE way! Still not sure? Go to others! Most creative people you know personally as friends or relatives are often happy to lend a hand! I pretty much lucked out on this costume due to my sister's sewing abilities entirely, and the fact I had an old deer antler lying around from YEARS ago that I had bought on a field trip for ten bucks. I never planned originally on using such a thing, it just came to my head at the last minute as a sheer miracle.

Maybe! It's fun to cosplay, just don't be a crazy angry force of doom like my sister about it, and take it too seriously :P

I was going to buy a white wig, do something with my ears, get a brown short and red pants and see if I can find some wings, I don't think I'll be able to do the ear and wing things. :(

More girls should wear fake beards, even outside of cosplay. I don't know why it's never caught on

It boggles my mind. The Hipster community has seemed to catch on to the mustache idea, why can't evil giant goatees be in fashion too??
