Originally introduced in Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos, Sylvanas was once a hero of the high elves who battled the Death Knight Arthas Menethil. When he finally overwhelmed her, he resurrected her as a banshee in revenge for the trouble she'd caused him. As the Lich King lost control over the undead Forsaken, Sylvanas regained control of herself and turned against him, joining the Horde and struggling to preserve her new people.
Redditor sarahdeanmakesthings is putting together an incredibly intricate game-accurate cosplay of Sylvanas in her well-known Forsaken design. The armor is both complete and stunning, and though the outfit is missing a few elements – specifically, body paint, eyebrows, and contacts – the character is still immediately recognizable. Over the course of a year, sarahdeanmakesthings has meticulously constructed ornate armored boots, leggings, and gloves as well as enormous, skull-bedecked pauldrons.
The cosplay also features long white hair, a quiver, a ragged red cloak, pointed ears, and one of World of Warcraft's notorious armored bikini tops. She also wears armored blue heels with the same pattern as her leg armor and what appears to be a torc around her neck. According to sarahdeanmakesthings, the boots were the most difficult part to figure out – they're pleather boot covers worn over regular heels and black leggings – a clever way to capture the physics-defying look of World of Warcraft characters in a cosplay. The whole outfit has a very particular style of shading applied to the paint, making her look a bit like a life-sized Warhammer miniature. As the Warcraft franchise drew inspiration from the Warhammer franchise, this connection may make a good deal of sense.
As of writing, the cosplay appears to be very well received by fans. Not only have Sylvanas fans appreciated the incredible level of detail put into the outfit, they applaud sarahdeanmakesthings for capturing Sylvanas' sardonic but dangerous body language. One fan even noted that without the blue body paint, the cosplayer resembled Sylvanas in life. It's often difficult to bring World of Warcraft character designs to life, but sarahdeanmakesthings has done a great job recreating Sylvanas, even without the undead flair.|
