If complete and utter chaos was lightning... by CamishCD If complete and utter chaos was lightning... by CamishCD
I believe I have never felt the urge to type in caps lock while writing an artist's comment as badly as right now. ASDFGHHJJ. There.

I also believe some of you told me you wanted pictures of a certain worried incompentent scruffy wizzard? Here you gooooo.

I just. This picture. I can't. All the thanks to Artur Pardo for making my costume look it's best. It's really just me in a painted bathrobe sporting a fake beard and a hat made with equal measures chicken wire and glue gun, with some sequins sprinkled on for good measure, all rubbed down with soot from the fireplace at home. The magic of cosplay.

HUGE cudos to you if you recognize all the random symbols I painted on the robe, btw. Some of them exist mostly in my head.

EDIT: THANK YOU. Thank you. Thank you thank you thank you. For the DD, the favs, the comments, everything. Seeing all this praise from you makes me giddy with joy. So thank you all!

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-05-12
As the deviant says, "The power of cosplay..." , so much was done here using apparently so little of a distinct and different character. Awesome!

Hey, he looks too handsome! Also, the hat should have WIZZARD on it. 

On the other hand...

It's brilliant work, probably the best rendition of Rincewind I've ever seen. I'd love to see you do some other Discworld characters. Most of the DW renderings on DA are not worthy of mention.

Looking through the DD'S and saw this picture, I can tell you one thing, you just made my day :D I knew who it was even before I reading the artists comments or title, so that just tells you how well this came out! It's an awesome cosplay and a great photo!
Rincewind has got to be one of my all time favorite characters from any book~

Like NikitaDarkstar and many others my first thought was "Rincewind?" so you've clearly succeeded in portraying the character. To my mind (Ok, coloured by Josh Kirby's work on the book covers and graphic novels), better than David Jason did in the Tv mini-series.

I hate to say it but Rincewind's hat probably IS made with equal measures chicken wire and glue. :rofl:  AMAZING job!!!!  That is SO the Rinser of Winds!!!!! LOL!!!  :D

You say it's "just" you in a painted bathrobe with a hat of chicken wire and glue gun and sequins for good measure... but that is the essence of Rincewind and Terry Pratchett. Wonderful work, such an exciting thing to see great Discworld art!

This is the greatest thing since creamed slood.  I don't need to see the "WIZZARD" on his hat to recognize Rincewind.

So, kudos on making such a great immediate impression and recognizability out of just chicken wire and a bathrobe. That makes my day.

And it seems that my day is totally Rincewind'd. I've been drawing him at school today and now... such a great cosplay. You're definitely BEST. RINCEWIND. EVER!
The details are incredible and making of everything is very convincing. Congrats again!
