Put together by Milynn Sarley and featuring art by Emily Claus, Starlight Guild is a new colouring book that turns some excellent fantasy cosplay into some excellent, crafty art.


Cosplayers and costume designers featured include aliciamariebody, fireflypath, hendoart and _fairytas. “I took my real life friends who have made strides in the world as professional costumers, photographers, models, actresses, Dungeons & Dragons game masters, cosplayers, video game creators and so much more, and made them into RPG coloring book characters,” Milynn says of the 22-page project.

A digital release, it’s $5, and you can get it here.

Wouldn’t this just be a coloring book? I get that the drawings were inspired by people in costumes, but those cosplayers are representing actual characters.  If you move that to a medium like a coloring book, doesn’t it just become a representation of the originating character?
