Blizzard features Sylvanas Windrunner cosplay

Blizzard features Community Cosplayers Sylvanas Windrunner

Sylvanas Windrunner's long and storied past is fraught with heartbreak and sorrow. Whether she's loved, feared, or despised for her actions, the Dark Lady makes for captivating cosplay as seen in Blizzard's community cosplay spotlight.

This is quite a stunning photo, captured by Kira Hokuten, of quite a stunning cosplay. Sylvanas Windrunner, an eternal favorite of cosplayers, is emulated fantastically by Vea Novenario. While the skin tone may leave a little to be desired in this particular photo, the detail in the armor and the bow is remarkable. It can be seen with even more clarity on Vea's deviantart page and worldcosplay page. The amount of care put into rendering every detail of Sylvanas' bow is astounding, and the same applies for the armor. Every plate, every decoration, everything is faithfully reproduced.

When such huge amounts of work go into these costumes, it's really great to see Blizzard giving the community cosplayers the recognition they deserve for all their effort. Cosplay competitions are always one of our favorite parts of any convention, just to see the skill and devotion of the cosplayers in person. Here's looking forward to future installations of community cosplay spotlight!

Cosplay fun with the Stringer family

World of WarCrafts spotlights art and creativity by WoW players, including fan art, cooking, comics, cosplay, music, fan fiction and more. Sample the whole spectrum on our Arts and Crafts in WoW page.

When I ask cosplayers, "How did you get into cosplay?" the answer most often given is that they attended a convention, saw someone in the costumes and decided to create a design based off their characters or a character in game. Well, today I've got a submission that happened to be the other way around entirely! After last week's amazing tauren cosplay, I was sent this amazing female tauren costume along with a whole host of others from 30-year costuming veteran Susan Stringer.

Susan didn't start out playing WoW; it was her son Jake's dwarf hunter costume that inspired her to try her hand at creating a WoW character. One thing led to another, and Susan picked up WoW and started playing for herself, eventually completing the costume you see above. For the Stringers, both cosplay and WoW are now a family activity.
