    I'm looking at getting into Cosplay and the first few people I want to cosplay are Egwene, Nynaeve and Moraine. I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on Cosplay Wheel of Time characters.

    Awesome choices!

    I think the first thing to figure out is what type of outfit you want to wear. Egwene in the Two Rivers is dressed vastly different than Egwene the Amyrlin, and Nynaeve has similar changes (Moiraine not so much).

    The Thirteenth Depository has articles on the dress of all sorts of regions (Cairhien being key for Moiraine), as well as character descriptions: http://13depository.blogspot.com/

    Ok, thank you.

    [/SPOILER]I'm going to do Egwene as a wise one apprentice. and Nynaeve as a Yellow sister.[/SPOILER]

    Love those choices!
    I'm working on a Birgitte costume, and something I did was use our library (I think? I checked as few different places so I may be wrong) for mentions of Birgitte. Then, I physically looked in each book at the mentions and made notes on her clothing. I skipped the parts where she was with Luca's menagerie, since I wasn't going to make that outfit. (Side note: It's also how I discovered I have lost Path of Daggers :eek )

    I also looked at others' cosplay online, which I'm sure you're doing.

    I've been (sort of) updating our pinterest page with costume ideas, so if you want, send me any outside sources you find and I can add them.

    Can't wait to see updates!!
