This Guild Wars 2 Asura Cosplay Comes with a Giant Golem
Enayla Cosplay goes above and beyond with her costumes. She’s crafted a suspended GLaDOS cosplay and several sets of detailed armor. One of her latest builds is an asura from Guild Wars 2. Enayla didn’t just make the costume, she also crafted a nine feet tall golem to go with it — asura can summon and create golems. Enayla says:
I’m wearing medium CoE Inquest armor with a Ley Line Longbow and the golem is based on the asura racial skill Summon Power Suit. It’s all EVA foam over a PVC pipe base, hand-painted with acrylics and wired up so that all of the gems glow. I built platforms into the legs so I can climb up into it, although it’s going to take a little more engineering before I can do any walking around or fighting in the suit.
She’s been working on the costume for about a year and half.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
