Absolution Regalia - World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade
I spaced out this cosplay over the course of six months. At the time, I was working 55-60 hours a week, and I had never done such an elaborate project and was afraid I wouldn't be able to get it done in time. The costume includes tons of interfacing to give it stiffness and to adhere all the trims and detail. The should pads are made from craft foam, paper mache, styrofoam and wefts of grey yarn "hair" that I made and installed myself. I like the dark edge of this cosplay, and that my chains clank when I walk. This cosplay is based off my Undead Female from my WoW days.
