One year after my original plan to finish this cosplay, i can finally say that Troll Tier Dave is complete! Ive been wanting to cosplay something that no one else has cosplayed yet, and ive always been inspired by the species swap au’s, but none of those au’s ever had a Dave in god tier( and to hell if i was going to pass up the chance to make wings for him). So i took my desire to cosplay Dave Strider and put a “you are making this way more complicated than it needs to be” twist on it. and after hours of staring at dozens different types of butterfly wings, my concept for Troll tier Dave was forcefully, but successfully pulled into existence.
