Thought I should post a picture of the whole set I made for the Sherlock Holmes shoot I did with ~knathe25 !! Plus, at least I'm wearing a different outfit ~
It took about 6 hours - Tis my room, and yes, I do own all that stuff.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-08-07
The set took 6 hours, and it's well worth the look - as is the cosplayer smack in the middle. Well done!

I hope you don't mind that I am featuring this in my favorites. It's really remarkable! I'm not a "cosplay" fan though I do wear garb at reenactment events, from medieval to about the fur-trade era. This is exceptional work and a terrific photograph!

Thank you!!
I guess I've never thought if dressing up to medieval events counts as cosplay. I've personally never done it, but since it's re-enactment and less "costume play" I don't know if it would perhaps be a thin line?

Actually, I don't place reenactors in the same category as cosplayers. The main thing is that cosplayers are recreating characters from various genres. Most reenactors create their own characters/persona. Basically, they invent how their characters look and act and don't borrow at all. However, I've seen a few in my years at Bristol Renaissance Faire who did copy characters or "translated" them to the faire environment. Jedis are popular, but there are surprisingly few "borrowed" characters. Of course, this might have changed in the past several years; my health became so bad that I couldn't attend anymore. I miss it so much and think longingly of my garb, wondering if I'll ever wear it again.  

I have to add that you do a remarkable job with details. In the old days, we'd have said you are a reenactor or a costumer, which is why my folder has the main title "MASQUERADE". I do have a second folder for true reenactment events though I put some period costumes in there, too, if they look like people I'd see at Bristol or elsewhere.

Someday, I will have my scanner hooked up and will be able to share many pictures from the events I've attended, as well as conventions.

Ahh!! That makes a lot of sense! I completely understand what you mean. 
And thank you! Although I like to take characters that already exist, I like to give them a "me" overhaul, and turn something already laid out and recreate it with an original design.
I always wanted to make an original character. Especially in the regency era. I get excited just thinking about it!

When you ever get the time, I would definitely love to see those pictures!
