Dirk the Daring - Dragon's Lair

Status :Complete
Worn At :London MCM Expo May 2010


Singe Defeated


Defending the Princess



Test 1

Original reference sheet




Screw knights in shining armour, Dirk's where it's at. AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN.

Made almost entirely from tshirt material, yay for non-fraying XD

Sadly it's a bit rushed, the orange is way too vivid but it's all I could find, and there's at least four sticks of hotglue in there somewhere.

But it's done.

I finally made a sword :P

I mistook you for Dungeons and Dragons ~ then we freaked out about Space Ace! XD I thought you were so cool! I have often thought of Kimmie as a potential costume~*

You know, today I watched the runthroughs of Dragon's lair 1 and 2 :3 I'm also seriously considering cosplaying Kimmie at some point soon ~ so if you and Daphnie are about in october still in the same costume.. and I can find a tall Aryan twinkie to be Ace we could take the place downnn! :3 Yh its a shame it was so crouded, I'd have loved to hunt you and Daphnie down and take some more shots too T_T ahwell T_T maybe there's other cons which we could gatecrash? :3

Dirk needs a little repair love but he should be pretty easy to break out anytime and he's very expo-friendly! I'm sure Kelly can be convinced to Daphne up again too - we're already hoping to get some photos somewhere in the meantime anyway as it was pretty rushed - I think she wants to do Kimmie sometime too XD Thanks for the comments btw, certainly made my day when people recognised it!

Thanks to all for the comments on this, really wasn't expecting anyone to recognise it XD

I confess I didn't *recognise* the costume as Dirk, but I thought it was a cool costume anyway and it suited you. Also looks like a lot of fun to wear (and comfortable!)
