Tabletop Cosplays?

MaiuMaiu Registered User regular
I always love cosplaying a character from a video game or show I'm obsessed with, but I'm curious about board game/tabletop cosplays. Coup characters would be a lot of fun. What other cosplay ideas are there?

    Characters from Pandemic, Go as a Cards Against Humanity Card, some of the stuff from Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder is awesome and very easy to create based on the illustrations in the D&D manuals,books, videogames etc, Medieval characters from Carcassone, Settlers from Cataan, Characters from Clue, Candyland etc.. there is lots of room and it lets you use your imagination a bit more than character from a video game, or comic book.For example other than a few illustrations in a D&D manual do we really know what a Dark Elf looks like, or a Terrask?

    I like this chance to wear all my boardgame t-shirts etc.
    there are also some great Meeple sweatshirts for some casual dressing up.
    Saw some Awesome Catan costumes with each person surrounded by their built-up hex, though maneuverability took a hit haha

    Legend has it a group once cosplayed as the characters on the Ticket to Ride box front.

    I also expect to see some giant walking meeples

    Oh my word. Now I want all my cookie brigade distributors to dress as different characters from Candyland.

    we've had Munchkin Cosplayers show up at West before. I wouldn't be surprised if that happens again.

    Also, remember Star wars has a lot of TTG and TRPG. So, pretty much any SW cosplay would work.

    I would love to see characters from King of Tokyo or New York. Also, I think the Fantasy Flight Cthulhu series characters would be pretty easy to do.

    I'm planning on bringing my MaxX (Netrunner) cosplay as well as my Inquisitor (Warhammer 40K) costumes. My group of friends is talking about putting together a group cosplay of clue, or maybe Betrayal. We haven't decided yet.

    If you want a wide range of options, take a look at the tabletop miniatures games. Warhammer 40k & Age of Sigmar, Warmachine & Hordes, Malifaux, all good options. Lots of factions and styles to choose from.

    We're planning on seriously nerding it up on Saturday and dressing as our Ravenloft PCs. I expect to get a lot of "who are you supposed to be" questions, but oh well! Hopefully we'll look badass enough that it will be worth it (and people won't think we're from Harry Potter.) :)

    I just joined this forum in part to post here. I have a costume planned for Saturday. My cosplays always follow a particular theme. (My name and avatar are a hint) so this will be no different. :biggrin:

    so some kind of freddy kruger meeple?

    Not quite, no. Hate to be a tease, but I'm too fond of the idea to spoil it before the show. If folks here are curious (and don't see me there) I'll post pics after. I suspect some people will enjoy it and some people will just be super confused. :lol:

    I'll be wearing Vex'ahlia from Critical Role on Friday, is anyone else familiar with or cosplaying from Critical Role? I'd love to meet up! :D
