Cosplayer Anne Torstensen, a.k.a. Ibelinn Cosplay, attended BlizzCon and wore her stunning and scary Diablo III Death Maiden costume. Death Maidens are female angels who are also Reapers, and their costumes are striking. Torstensen loved the design of the creatures and did a top notch job bringing the concept to life. Here’s what she says about the making of the Death Maiden costume:
It’s been a long road, an expensive one, but walking around in it, seeing myself in a mirror and getting the feedback that I have, I cannot say anything else then that I’m really proud of the result!
The costume is made from Worbla and craft foam, bodysuit bought and airbrushed by me, and there are fiber optics attached with batteries to the helmet.
She shared in progress photos on Facebook and watching the Worbla go from that dull beige-ish to a metallic finish is something else. She also posted photos and information about the build on Instagram.
