Uther the Lightbringer is a paladin in World of Warcraft and is known for his fighting prowess and for wielding the Hammer of the Lightbringer. The massive weapon is beautifully designed, and cosplayer Piltover City Customs replicated it. His Uther the Lightbringer costume takes center stage in these stunning photos by Steamkittens. The impressive location really complements the costume. They shot in St. Peter’s Cathedral, and the results couldn’t be more perfect.
Of course, it helps that Piltover made an incredibly detailed costume. Linking together the chainmaille nearly broke him. He ordered 1,700 of them for the project and spent hours and hours assembling them and making them wearable.
You can see a couple making of photos below and on Facebook.
