Each year at Dragon Con, there’s usually a contingent of Dune cosplayers. The problem is that there are so many cosplayers that you’ll only run into them by luck or by finding out if they have a meet up for photos. You can also stumble upon the costumes by combing through pics from Dragon Con online — that’s how I usually end up seeing them. This Fremen stillsuit is from a few years ago. It’s different in construction than this stillsuit we previously featured, and I’m always interested in seeing how people figure out this complex piece of clothing.
In Frank Herbert’s book, the stillsuit is key to the Fremen’s survival on the desert planet of Arrakis. What I like about this cosplayer’s take on the suit is the way he weathered it — the stillsuit looks like it’s been worn out in the sun and sand for years.
