Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-18
:iconresident-chicklol:
This is honestly one of those great cosplay pictures that really capture the character.From how the cape flows up behind her to the armor and her weapons.Everything is purely detailed down to the bone (or paint in this case)Even the environment is perfect!

But the only thing that sorts of ruins is the pose on her-knee-style.HOWEVER again,the detail and all the beauty in the cosplay totally fades that out;Making this a fantastic cosplay.I would absolutely love to see more of this costume in action soon.

Also the photographer managed to capture EVERYTHING in one beautiful shot is hands down AWSOME!

honestly, this is awesome. blue skin is painted so well that it looks like her own, same goes for color of her eyes. so many details in there and all perfectly done, I can't find mistake there! it just looks too great; like she was real, I'd say! though I can't really tell how authentic she is, since I don't play World of Warcraft. but here goes proof that it can easily catch even eye of someone unconnected to WoW ;)
but what really finishes it to the finest is lighting and atmosphere of place used for taking this photo. I've met many photos of perfect costume, but most of them without any fitting pose (you know, these "hello there" waving poses or just simple standing). using pose in which she actualy aims at something was great idea!
there's only one thing I find... well, not so great. it's her coat. at first look, I was like "wow! it moves with the pose!". because it truly adds more action to the photo. but as I looked at it closer... it looks a bit like someting holds it there, that it's not just flowing with movement. I didn't find any string holding it though. I guessed it if from her hair and ground, both tiny plants and leaves, because these are not moving. then again, probably only detail-diggers like me will notice this - the beauty of the cosplay itself can easily beat this tiny detail! and it definitely looks better with her coat flowing than if the coat was just lying on the ground ;]
I'd love to see more shots of this awesome costume; maybe some dodging or dagger action where even her leg armor will be visible! :dance:

Not to be rude or anything, but Sylvanas has kinda sickly green skin, not blue. Otherwise, looks pretty great.

Question: If we wanted to recreate that bow, how would we go about it? We have artists looking for guidelines and references.

it's a nice cosplay, but she's FAR too blue. There were some amazing Sylvanas cosplayers at Blizzcon a few years ago. they really pulled it off.

I completely agree with the above, she is VERY over saturated.

What did you do for the cape? Was there just someone dropping it before you shot?

I Fav'd this already on the day of the DD, but can't remember if I commented. I'm glad to see you got some notice from Blizz. If you haven't already, you should enter the next Blizzcon's costume contest wearing this. :heart:

First off, I want to say how beautiful the costume is. The details on the armor, bow, and the hood of the cape is magnificent. The coloring/painting must have taken a long time! I applaud the craftsmanship on the costume.

The pose is brilliant! First time I've seen a pose where The Dark Lady doesn't look directly at the photographer and have a weapon to pose with! Fantastic photographer.

My only complaint, being someone who plays World of Warcraft and seen The Dark Lady in-game. The skin color is way to blue for my liking. In the game she's a whee bit grey... undead. She's a former Blood Elf ranger turned undead by Arthas. I identify the blue skin more with Night Elf. But its magnificent.
