Anthrocon, the world’s largest convention for anthromorphic enthusiasts, recently took place in Pittsburgh. Tumblr user and illustrator Rah-Bop used the occasion to craft a realistic and striking cosplay of their Dungeons & Dragons character. Rue is an anthromorph with the appearance of a raven. Rah-Bop’s costume features fur elements and beautifully iridescent feathers. There’s not any making of information available just yet, but I wanted to share the original costume to show off the maker’s creativity.
