Mercy Thompson Costume by roan-skywalker113 Mercy Thompson Costume by roan-skywalker113
So I decided to be Mercy Thompson for Halloween. I absolutely LOVE this series. If you haven't read it, READ IT! This is my attempt at duplicating the Moon Called cover... I tried.
This was a surprisingly simple costume. And that's odd coming from me - a serious perfectionist.
Jeans, chopped up blue shirt, brown belt, tool belt (minus tools), leather bracelet (Rue 21), custom embroidered name tag, white feather earrings, and a coyote print henna tattoo...
I'm happy with the results :)

Mercy Thompson belongs to Patricia Briggs. <3

Wow, I didn't realize Mercy had such a big fan base. Sweet! Good to know Briggs is getting the recognition she deserves. The costume looks great. Maybe you could do a photo manip and add a back ground.

Thanks a lot! That had been my intention but I was feel in lazy... I did some more recent shots of this costume outside, for real background :D

Yeah I saw those. They kind of rock a mullet. My PC is fried right now (surfing g on the tablet.) But when it is functional again I could retouch it for you if you want. It would be fun and would look good in the retouch portfolio.

So far I am really into this one above the rest... i like that you get to see a more personal side of Mercy and Adam's relationship and learning a little more about Mercy and her being a walker.

Indeed it is! I tell everyone I know about the series. I kind of made a Mercy outfit already but it wasn't very good lol I got the large official Mercy's Shop patch from Patty's store online and sewed it onto a shirt, and took some photos bending over my friends car with a wrench >.>

Very nice :) I didn't even know there was such a thing! I went to a custom embroidery place online and had mine made...

Oh wow, really?? Patty has the logo patch in two sizes on her site, in the store. It looks like its shut down for now (I'm a bad fan and don't visit the site for updates like I probably should :X ) but when it was open, it was pretty awesome :D
