I love Birgitte tho because everyone thinks she’s this weird person who just goes around calling herself Birgitte, dressed as Birgitte Silverbow, and only like five people know she’s actually Birgitte Silverbow. To everyone else she’s some weirdo who cosplays everyday
It’s amazing how quickly the dream sequences in The Eye of the World go from “terrifying” to “still terrifying, but also hilarious” once you know that they’re basically Ishamael cosplaying as his boss.
Back view of my shawl (with bonus photobombing Asha'man).
The one thing I don’t like about the shawl is how thin and light the fabric is; not only does it make it hard to wear but it means it stretches annoyingly on the bias which, as you can see, distorts the shape of the flame. I’m thinking of adding some beads to the fringe to give it a bit more weight; hopefully that will help a bit.
Except I gotta figure out how to de-stickify the tape residue on the bottom. And it really is see through but you know what I have those white swishy “it’s summer and it sucks when your thighs rub together” short things I’ll just wear those instead of bothering to make more lining.
Also it’s tight on my shoulders and biceps for some reason? But not tight enough to make me want to go back and change it now woohoo
