Cosplay we Love: Dashing Edgar Allan Poe Dameron

Once upon a midnight dreary, cosplayer Beth Grimes dreamed up this awesome outfit that mashes together Baltimore's legendary horror writer with the heroic X-wing pilot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Her brilliantly pale creation, Edgar Allan Poe Dameron, was on full display at last weekend's CONvergence in Bloomington, Minnesota, and had to have been one of the most original costumes in attendance.

“The base is a black flight suit, vintage military boots, and a black wig," Grimes explained. "The vest is made from spray-painted military surplus, padded belt spray-painted white and cut in half, and a spray-painted winter puffy vest. I sewed men’s webbed belts together and added leather tips and buckles for the harness. It was my first time trying greyscale makeup.”

Have a look and tell us if this Star Wars version of the gloomy American author earns its ultimate mashup award.
