Caw, Caw!: Man Makes Giant Raven Costume Based On His D&D Character

July 6, 2016

This is the giant anthropomorphic raven costume crafted by video game artist and illustrator Rah-Bop based on his Dungeons & Dragons character, Rue. Man, I wish my friends were willing to dress up to play Dungeons & Dragons, that would be great. They don't though, they always want to dress down. Way down. They want to play naked. I'm not sure if it's just to see my wiener or what, but I do swing it around like a broadsword (I'm a halfling barbarian) to entertain them. I'm a great host. Whoa, look out Robby the Rogue! *crash* Woops, sorry about your Mountain Dew cocktail, let me make you another one. What was it? "Mountain Dew and Monster and Red Bull." Jesus, no wonder you run through walls.

Keep going for one more shot from the rear.

Thanks to Gracie, who agrees there should be tabletop gaming rooms you can rent out that actually look like dungeons for ADDED REALISM.

    I would, quite literally, go everywhere in that costume. Get any flak, fuck em'. I identify as a Raven. They have to accept it, or they're misogynist racist Kenku-a-phobes.

  • Desiree Byrd

    I'd like to add, after exploring the artist's site, that it was a woman, not a man who created this. Artist's real name is Hillary Esdaile

  • MT

    This artist's name is Hillary Esdaile per her portfolio website, and is, to my knowledge, a woman.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Side note where are you finding that costume on Hillary Esdaile's site? I looked. I can't find it.

  • GeneralDisorder

    It appears that Rah-Bop made the concept and drawings. He doesn't claim to have made the costume.

  • MT

    at the top of Esdaile's website it says in bold letters "find me at rah-bop.tumblr.com" and just a couple minutes of perusing her tumblr it's obviously her character who is also female. It is not displayed on her portfolio site currently.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Holy crap, either he designed the pupils to move or there's an awesomely creepy "always looking at you" illusion going on. Either way, dats sick brah.

  • Ramuran

    In the top picture, the right eye looks completely transparent from that angle. They're probably glass orbs with the backs painted, so they follow, but still look like solid eyeballs. Very awesome. ._.

    IT'S NOT A FUCKING RAVEN!!! IT'S A KENKU. A RAVEN IS A BIRD OF THE CORVUS GENUS AND CAN'T SPEAK! A KENKU IS A SUBSECTION OF BIRD-FOLK HUMANOID PLAYABLE RACE IN D&D STARTING IN 3.5!!! AHHHHH!!!!!

    (legit though, this dudes costume and artwork for his character pretty fucking rad)

  • Patrick Morgan

    The cosplay is of Aarakocra not Kenku.

  • Andrew Newton

    Given the rules lawyer I can be when playing, I double checked my facts before I posted.

    EDIT ( one thing I didn't verify is whether the artist was male or not, she is not).

  • Matthew Anderson

    Good save! You musta rolled at least a 15!

  • Ethan Ceroja

    He definitely rolled an 18 or something on his History check.

  • This is so rad! I want one. :)

    There's a whole tavern in Ft. Collins, CO (linking to googlemaps because it countains actual photos and their website somehow doesn't):
