Meet the druid, Daughter Gaidel


With just under a week until the Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds, my excitement about this event is palpable. The convention booth is coming together and I think the idea of cos-playing a group of Redwood villagers relaxing at the Lady’s Grace inn to help sell the book was an inspired idea. The poster, bookmarks, and first print run of the book is in hand. sigh of relief here>

Now, the part that really has me stoked is along with those of us at the booth, a friend has coordinated for a couple to walk around the festival’s three huge convention rooms dressed as the druid, Daughter Gaidel, and her shieldwarden, Two Elks. They will be handing out bookmarks and directing people to the booth. I just received photos of the costume and vision this talented young woman, her name is Inge, has for Gaidel and wanted to share them. The photos were taken by, Tracey, a friend of hers. Oh, and no, she did not shave her head for this event; that is well applied makeup.

I would love to know what everyone thinks?

  1. Mind blown … That’s awesome! At first glance I was going to ask “how big was that check that you wrote to have that poor girl chop her top for your shameless marketing ploy,” but thankfully a happy medium was reached 😉

    Hope all goes well at the Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds, wish I could be there brother
