Courage the Cowardly Dog Queen of the Black Puddle Cosplay
It’s been several years since I’ve heard anything about Courage the Cowardly Dog. The animated series with a horror slant was geared towards children and aired on Cartoon Network beginning in 1999. I’ve never seen cosplay based on the cartoon until now, and of all the characters to dress as, The Queen of the Black Puddle is the best choice. She only appeared in a couple of episodes, but she made an impression.
This was one of the only cosplays I’ve ever commissioned, with the base dress being made by Coquetry Clothing, and then I added details like the purple lining on the sleeves, the Venetian lace on the bodice, and the red and gold medallion. The tiara is craft foam with iridescent black glitter added and the wig is two 40″ wigs purchased on eBay and sewn/glued together, teased to infinity and beyond, with some purple tissue paper for stuffing/height. I do the body paint myself and used Mehron Paradise AQ in “Light Blue.”
It’s a fun cosplay, despite how obscure it is, but I love seeing the excitement/amazement on the faces of those that do recognize it!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
