I am Argus Filch by droxy I am Argus Filch by droxy
My cosplay of Argus Filch from the Harry Potter Series. I've been wanting to cosplay Filch for some time. The costume was pulled out several closets. But the clothing was so old and shot I tossed the pants and vest at Misti-con 2013. I've had the bald wig for sometime. First time I used that. I have a fake nose and a crepe hair scraggly beard. Mehron and Ben Nye high performance makeup. No manips done.

I will need to make Filch a better costume. probably in a Western steam punk style or old British Butler style. This is a book cosplay. I don't find movie duplication very fun.

Argus's feline companion, Mrs. Norris, is played by deviant sabrebabe [link]

Please don't steal. I paid for this photo. I highly recommend The Enthusiasts for cosplay cons. They are a great team.

No money made. Fan art is love. Harry Potter is owned by JK Rowling and probably Warner Brothers. Heck, I'm not a lawyer.

I distinctly remember standing in the parking lot when you came out in that costume, and my eyes bugged out! That was a truly inspired piece of costuming, as was Mrs. Norris!
I'm glad you do book inspired versus movie inspired; makes it more realistic to our imaginations.
I didn't cosplay as anyone specific so you won't remember me :-)
Awesome, awesome job.

Okay, I'll re-look through everything! I've been so lax with my deviant art account, that every time I come in, there are over 1,000 messages. I used to be here daily, but life just took over. My husband and I built a new garage this year, and between taking down the old one and building the new, and with the rainy-arsed summer we had...argh! And now school's in session, and I school my daughter at home. Not pure home school, but cyber school, yet that's a good 5 hours of my day, plus taking care of my elderly mom. Yeesh! I'm re-reading all the HP books again in preparation for a local HP Fest. Last year my kid and I came in 5th place in a trivia game against several teams with way more people. This year, I'm taking along the elderly friend that came with me to Misti-Con. Wish us luck!

I loved this cosplay! You two were so terrific. I keep laughing about you doing your talk in costume, and one girl trying to argue and you pointing to your powerpoint pres: "Don't argue with this!" That was awesome.
