World of Warcraft Sylvanas Windrunner Costume

Cosplayer Ky0Miii, a.k.a. Ravenknight Kyriaki, recently made an impressive Sylvanas Windrunner costume for PAX Australia. It was her first full armor build. The World of Warcraft character has a richly colored costume and blue skin, and though the armor is skimpy like other World of Warcraft costumes, the design is striking… Just maybe not so practical.

Most armor builds I’ve seen lately mostly use Worbla, but Ky0miii primarily used EVA foam yoga mats. She did a great job shaping them and making pieces like the breastplate look seamless. Ky0miii accented the foam base with Worbla, Super Sculpey, Plastimake, and resin gems, and the result is a detailed set of armor. Here’s what she said about the finished costume:

Thoughts: The colours were kind of drained in this photo. The painting was rushed a night before the convention > <" definitely going to go back and spend more time properly painting and shading. A few details missing here and there and I will be needing to redo some of the armour fastenings to sit properly and not move as much. So for my next convention I plan to attend in 2015, I aim on getting the bow, quiver and arrows completed, the missing details added and refine the painting, proper application of the make up and cutting and styling of the wig and eyebrows. Overall I'm pretty happy of what I've accomplished especially with it being my first full armour costume. I hope to take awesome photos and do this character justice!
