One of the reasons I love the Stormlight Archive so much is that Roshar is so different from our world. In something like lotr or asoiaf the world is basically just “Our world but with dragons” but Roshar has been shaped and developed so differently over its history that it is wildly different from the world that we all know and it makes the books so much more interesting to me.

This piece is also celebratory art! Happy Chinese New Year 2016 (Year of monkey)! (It’s just past 0 a.m.! WOW!!!)
This is my Shallan costume from Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive series. It was fun designing the costume based off various descriptions in the book. Having my left hand (the safe hand) covered was a must of course! My favorite part of the costume is the hand painted Pattern, as he was often described to hide among the folds of her skirt in the book. Construction details and more photos can be found here!
