Thank you to all that contributed!


Welcome to the Elftown costume design contest. This is not a Halloween contest, but a chance to show your skills at costume design, and/or construction. So, shall we begin?


Game costumes! What we want to see: Costumes adapted from, or designed for your favorite game, be it, a role-playing game, a video game, or any other sort of game. Take a photo of, or draw yourself dressed as a Dungeons and Dragons character, or draw a costume for the next Final Fantasy game, or a Gothic horror roleplaying game. It's up to you. Be creative, and have fun!

1: As usual, all work must be your own. No matter how much you love someone's costume, or drawing, you may not enter it for them. Anyone entering copied or stolen work will have their entry deleted.

2: Photos only, in the photo section, and drawings only in the drawing section. The competitions are separate, so please post entries in the right section. 

3: No photomanips. We only want drawings or photos of costumes you design.

4: Any photo of a costume, must have you (the elftowner) in the costume, so we know it is your work. There should also be an additional image of either the half made costume, or a reference photo of yourself, so we can verify the work is your own. (I know this can be a pain, but photos are too easy to steal, and difficult to verify) No photo will be accepted without the additional photo. No exceptions, sorry.

5. 2 entries per member maximum.


Since the chosen images will be featured on Main Street, we would like to keep them fairly small. Your image should be no wider than 300 pixels and the height should be no more than 500. Be creative but please keep that in mind!



June 30th 2005


How to post it here:
Add your image after the last one that has been already posted. Don't forget to write its title and your user name. For example:

8. Witch costume. [Kuruni]



I made it yesterday for another person, for a movie, but i thought it would look good on me before i give it away. My own design and i made it completely except for the boots and dagger, hehe. The robe was for the starwars episode 3 premiere.  Is for a AD and D fan movie.

9. Darth Zirja - [Talvikki] - my Dark Jedi character for Star Wars RPG - I made the robe way back when Star Wars was still respectable, for Episode I, and the armor for an SFF con last spring. Except for the gloves, bracelets and boots, I made everything (inc. pants and lightsaber) from scratch with some help from my dear mom.

The reference pics are me with just the armor at Balticon '04 bio pic from Elfwood.

10. Neko Ninja - [chipmunk01] - I used to RP with this character that I called Shadow, but I decided to make her into a costume this year, A stealth ninja from Lord Gohda's arms, a half cat half humanic character. Kinda does look like cat woman but it isn't! Don't be fooled, her bite is worse then her bark... I had to design every thing except the belt and collar which I had from my brother with. It has hidden runes and such in the pants scuffs.

the reference picture is the day we made the costume, my brother mesuring and my mom at the machine with the belt... Not much to go off of but I scrounged them up!

11. Princess Talia- [MoonDuck]

12. Lt. Alex Wolf - [Wa+cher]
The costume for my Stargate SG-1 RPG Character

13. High Elven Ambassador - [Nightshadow]
Original concept. No pre-designed patterns were used. The only thing purchased were the pants and small metal ornaments. (Necklace and on vambraces). Because I hate sewing pants, and Goodwill is handy. XP
