This Grand Empress Shek’zeer Costume Won BlizzCon’s Costume Contest

I see creative and incredible costumes at every convention I attend, but photos from BlizzCon always make an impression on me. The gaming convention focused on Blizzard’s major franchises features a plethora of cosplayers with armor, wings, stilts, and everything in between. Cosplay Py attended the convention with her World of Warcraft Grand Empress Shek’zeer costume. The ruler of the mantid is a villain, and Py captured the look so well that it appears as though she walked out of the game.

She had the costume done last year, but a last minute malfunction meant the costume couldn’t be worn. Py took the opportunity to overhaul the costume and gave the legs and head a new paint job. Shek won first place in the costume contest at BlizzCon this year but not many people got to see the ensemble because Py got tripped up on her way to the stage during the costume contest and injured her ankle. She’s okay, but she couldn’t participate that night. Luckily, she and Shek had already been through the judging room earlier in the evening.

Py put a lot of work and time into the costume, and it’s apparent in the pictures. The Grand Empress Shek’zeer costume looks absolutely amazing.
