Shallan is as much a personal cosplay as she is a fun one; Brandon Sanderson’s The Stormlight Archive was my older brother’s favorite book that he gave to me to read shortly before joining the navy. Once I finished the books available and realized that canon artwork existed in the book jackets, a cosplay was a must alongside my best friend, who undertook Jasnah Kholin.
Shallan first made her debut at Katsucon 2018, where everyone thought I was Sansa Stark (at least I’m on brand even when I’m a different character!). Even though she was too obscure for a con floor, she’s one of my new favorites and will definitely be making a comeback at DragonCon 2018.
Dream shoot: Book jacket image recreation, or a full Cosmere cast
