Brienne of Tarth Cosplay by cuttoothom Brienne of Tarth Cosplay by cuttoothom
Debuted at Petit Fancy 19 last weekend, in Taipei.
If only I had blonder hair. And a grumpier facial expression.
Anyhow, maybe cheap cosplay is making a comeback. Cardboard armor served me nicely this time.

This is INCREDIBLE! I'm sort of amazed that there aren't more Brienne cosplayers, because she's such an interesting character. :3


So, you used cardboard?? I can't believe you got the armor to look so realistic on a budget. Brienne is my next cosplay, but I've been trying to decide what material to use for the armor, especially the chestpiece. I've considered cardboard with expanding foam, regular craft foam, cardboard, etc. Do you have any tips on finishing cardboard to make it more sturdy? Did it hold up well at a con?


Congrats again on a wonderful cosplay. You look tough and (uncharacteristically ;P) beautiful and SUPER in-character.

Aw, fanks. :D

I agree that more people should do Brienne, and I regret that I had to leave that costume behind in Taipei when I moved away!

As for finishing the cardboard -- well, this was something my older brother recommended that fit with my cheapness and made the pieces more sturdy: the lines on the breastplate were done with hotglue and painted along with the rest. This added an extra layer of support to the structure, actually. I'm the type of cosplayer who sort of figures out what I'm doing as I go, which can be haphazard.

 Let me think...the cardboard I used was quite thin, actually (parts of it came from take-out bento boxes!) and I neglected to actually create a backpiece due to the cape. Honestly, I'd love to do this cosplay again now that I have better resources. Let me know what you decide on! :D

I like it! I also love the irony that you debuted a Brienne cosplay at 'Petit' Fancy, heehee.
