Queen of the Forsaken by Kukuzilla Queen of the Forsaken by Kukuzilla
Epic cape flow is epic!

A big thank you to ~Elemental-Sight and the Enthusiasts [link] for this photo among others, and for the Photographer's Choice award! They gave me a beautiful poster of this photo along with a smaller print as a masquerade prize for Best in Class Workmanship. EPIC WIN! :dance:

Contsruction details: Made in 3 weeks with a bit of help with the shortage of time. Armor made with fosshape cover in fabric and hand painted, and fun foam and pool noodle for the borders. Cloak was hand embroidered. Skulls made with Sculpey.

Make up details: 2 hours of hand painting with Paradise by Mehron. Ears by Aradani Studios.

I am truly pleased with how this one turned out! Only a few things I would fix for next time include: Less droopy eyebrows, better brown leggings (will possibly remake them entirely) and much less painful shoes. My feet were BURNING!

Costume source: World of Warcraft

A huge thanks to my friend :iconsilverfaune: for her awesome help with the cloak, skulls and make-up!

My god you are so amazing. How did you make the armor? I want to make some like this, but I don't know what material.

I wonder how you made that high quality armor especially the silver parts...
I was also planning to make sylva costume, so I'm shocked ><
Great job!

The costume is really good, but if you allow me to say, in all pictures I sensed lack of face expression.

Thank you for being honest! I am TERRIBLE with facial expressions and not sure what to do about it. >.<

I'd say prepare yourself before the shooting by doing some stretching, both for the body and face. News Anchors do that. Putting strong emotions on your face and body like a forced big smile, or a "sparta" growl and so on, would prepare you to be a fotoshoot star. By looking at pictures people can feel if an extended arm was being strained or just lifted.

Hope I've helped :)
I'd like to see more of your banshee queen ^^

This has to be the best Sylvanas cosplay I have seen. You got the textures right. Also I approve of makeup choice. It makes you look more like a bloodless corpse than a high elf who took a bath in blue dye. ~_^
