Jessica Merizan is a popular cosplayer and costume designer, but she also happens to be Lead Community Manager at BioWare Edmonton-Montreal. On behalf of BioWare, Jessica posted a blog entry today announcing something quite unique - Dragon Age: Inquisition Character Kits. "We want to give fan artists–cosplayers, illustrators, painters, writers, cake decorators, everyone–access to detailed, descriptive, high resolution character designs before the game is released. These will be distributed so you can have them available online or print them out and keep in your garage, workshop, sewing room, or creative space to reference."
Alongside the announcement is the release of the first character, Morrigan. Those familiar with the series will remember her as a playable character in Dragon Age: Origins, and she will be returning to the series in Dragon Age: Inquisition in a non-playable role. The character kit is of Morrigan in her ball gown and comes with a PDF that even includes RGB values for the color palette used so artists and designers can be as exact as possible.
New Character Kits will be released "in the coming weeks and months," but no set timeline has been disclosed. Dragon Age: Inquisition is set to release for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in Q3 2014.
