Dryad with Cape by Red-Dragon-Lord Dryad with Cape by Red-Dragon-Lord
Dryad with cape - Finally, it was cool enough for the dryad to wear her cape. I actually made this cape two years ago when I made the rest of her costume and this was one of the few times she got to wear it. This shot was taken by Joshua Steinke at the Carolina rennaissance festival.

Bear in mind that she is not a normal dryad. She is a carnivorous dark dryad which explains the elements of fur from her kills so beware when you enter her forest.

Thank you! I really should make another. I was considering doing a male version. Some sort of tree spirit so that I may accompany her.

Mhm!! Ahhh that would be wonderful to see!! It looks almost pearlescent in the photo like the colors would change as the light moved. Does it or is that the photo lying to me? XD

It does have that effect. I used some metallic paints as well as glitter.

Great costume and mask. The eyes are very creepy. If you like, I can make you a manipulation with this costume. Let me know what background you like.

My wife is super psyched that you would do a manipulation with this! I trust your keen artistic eye to choose the appropriate background far better than mine.

The lining is a microfiber that resembles suede and the outside is all leather. The collar is rabbit fur.

Oh my but it looks wonderful with furs! You even make coats too?? Creative person, you!

Carnivorous dryad eh? Does this mean we'll be seeing a nice trophy belt with bones and things soon too? That could be cool.:D

She may start to morph toward an orc type character!?!

A female orc maybe? I would have no complaints! Though I suspect mouth tusks would be needed to push that look. ;)

LOL. Indeed. Maybe more like LOTR orc rather than WOW orcs.

Thank you. I've always liked the cloak on her but its rarely cool enough to wear it during ren fair season. Unfortunately, when she wears her cloak, its not really practical for her to wear her bow.
