About this Costume
Construction Details:
Constructed in about a month during spare time, this was a real test of endurance for my fabrication skills.

The chest is a plaster cast that is finished, sanded, and then covered with marine vinyl in a leather patterned texture. The legplates are craft foam covered with the same material, as are the pauldrons. The trim is a faux suede with grommets, brads, and studs in place for accent. The pauldrons are attached to the chestplate with snaps, and the chestpiece is strapped on with buckles and straps in an X pattern across my back. The cloak affixes to the front of the chest with hook and eye closures.
Personal Thoughts:
This costume is featured in the July/Summer issue of BioGamer Girl Magazine by BGG Entertainment. I see a lot of Sylvanas as we know her now - undead, and there is even photos of a cosplayer running around in Alleria Windrunner's armor - but I've never seen a living Sylvanas. Any of us who have seen the cinematic for Lament of the Highborne know how sad her story was. When I was thinking about what to do for DragonCon this year to step my game up, living Sylvanas was a natural choice. A strong leader who refused to leave her homeland to be decimated by the scourge and fought until her dying breath. A lot of people forget about that part of Sylvanas's story - and I feel it should be remembered.
