This was the main costuming project for Spring 2014. Keeping with my current Dragon Age coma, I wanted to do a more canon version of young!Loghain so when I came across the River Dane/Mac Tir armour set (dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Arms_…, I absolutely had to make it.

It's predominately leather and Worbla and took about three months to complete. You can find all of the WIP shots and construction log on my Facebook: www.facebook.com/teadrunktailo…

Gotta say, this guy has me absolutely hooked. <3 His giant (and extremely ugly) chevalier armour from DA: Origins will consume most of the summer this year. At one point, I would like to do some Warden gear for him too. (Plus a Mass Effect/Dragon Age crossover costume for the end of September. #renegadeasfuck)

Special thanks to MaevesChild for this totally gorgeous thing: maeveschild.deviantart.com/art… 10/10 CANNOT HANDLE

Also thanks to Aka Maple for the wonderful photography! www.facebook.com/AkaMaple

He is my favorite Character!  BRAVO! I hope they do a prequel game! I feel like I loved him first ... there is not enough fans of this guy... I defend him all the time.

This is honestly a fantastic cosplay.  Even though I'm unfamiliar with this armor (and I agree on Origins and their ugly giant plate mail), I can still tell it's Loghain.  I did also read the prequel novels though, so I'm sure that helps. :p

I like how the costume is a bit dirty in places, it makes it more realistic.  The scenery and expression of the cosplayer is very convincing also.  Sometimes the best made costumes can be ruined by using just the hallway of a comic-con convention center or the like.  Setting can be half of it.   So again, very well done.

Adding this to favorites for certain.

Thanks!! Man, I love him in the book. I enjoy his sarcastic commentary in Origins but I kind of like him better when he's more taciturn. Dunno why. Maybe because he's such a great foil to Maric.
