A set of the business cards I worked up for my Harry Dresden costume here ([link]
). I ended up making like thirty of these for the weekend and I only have ten or so left. I actually made these for last year's Fanime (one of the people I bumped into has apparently been using the one I gave her last year as a book marker for her Dresden Files books, which is really cool). Originally I made these up for people who hadn't heard of The Dresden Files so I could introduce them to Jim Butcher's style and setting, but they work great as little gifts for people who recognize the costume. At the time I designed these, Changes
had been published but not Ghost Story
. Holy carp, was that already almost a year ago? Jeeze. Next year I'll add my deviantArt account details for a bit of advertising.
Oh, and before anyone asks: while the postal and area code are authentic Chicago downtown numbers, the street that address is on does not exist. Also, the four real digits after the fake 555 number are supposed to spell out "MAGI."
And for clarity's sake, for anyone who's having troubles reading what's actually on the card:FRONT HALF

No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment.

Conjure by it at your own risk.
Well, that should be everything I need for the description. Incredibly dorky? Yes. Incredibly fun? Oh, totally. I got a lot of compliments on this little extra bit of detail, and in most cases curtailed people complaining about the hat.

If you'd like to use this design for your own cosplay, you I'd greatly appreciate just a little word of advertisement or something similar. Thank you!
