I had a ton of fun making this costume. I wanted to do something that had never been cosplayed before in the WoW universe (to my knowledge), yet be recognizable. I wonder how many horrible flashbacks I gave to the other hardcore raiders out there. ;) I started this many, many months before Blizzcon and I'm very happy with the results. I would change a couple things with the costume if I ever went back to it, like the positioning of the two "free-hanging" arms. The palm-down pose I carved them in looked too unnatural and could have used a bit of adjustment.
The shoulders, hat and wrists are wonderflex, model magic and insulation foam. The cloth parts of the costume were interesting to sew, as I had absolutely no sewing experience going into this project. I tried my best to learn on the fly. I have a long way to go, but all in all it was well worth the effort.
