Redditor Anniemee is hard at work on a Draenei Death Knight from World of Warcraft, and though she’s not done just yet, she’s showing off some progress pictures on Imgur. She’s a fan of the Death Knight quest in the game, so she used the opportunity to make a costume with armor for the first time and she specifically picked a Draenei because she wanted to make horns. She wanted to tower over convention crowds so she started with stilts and then made the armor with an EVA foam base. She got creative with the spikes on the armor and made them from craft foam and puffy paint and put down googly eyes as the rivets. See a couple in-progress pics below and more on Imgur.
