This year, for our Tolkien and Lord of the Rings fans we are proud to return the talented cosplay group, The Fellowship Cosplay Group! They will have a variety of Lord of the Rings costumes on display! The cosplay troupe consists of lifelong friends and family who enjoy creativity, ingenuity and spending time together. Their group includes members of all ages from grandparents to children. Using formal education skills in art, drafting, carpentry, blacksmithing and business they work together in creating their group cosplay. Members of the fellowship enjoy participating in local festivals, creative writing, performing arts, costume design and construction, and theatrical design. As fans of Tolkien they design their cosplay to accurately reflect descriptions from the books and movies. The Fellowship shares a goal of bringing more interactive cosplay experiences to the fans of Tolkien and introducing others to Middle-Earth. Stop by their booth and take an up-close look at their amazing costumes. You won’t want to miss this chance to talk with the groups co-founder, Matt Carra, and owner of MACfxStudios.us, about how they design and create their costumes, props, and special effects used in their cosplay.
