Illidan Stormrage


World of Warcraft

Last Updated: 10-29-2010

Yay, it's finally done. Worn for and promptly retired after Blizzcon 2010!

Aside from the ghetto rigging on my horns and the atrocious wig (which combined were even worse), I'm pretty pleased with how my first attempt at a "real" costume came out. While the general response was a little underwhelming for the work and money I put into it, I received a lot of great feedback and learned a shitton, which totally made everything worth it (including an injury list of bleeding cuts on my feet, bruises on my head, and soreness throughout).
--I learned that I do really prefer function over elaborateness, as walking around unhindered by my gear on the floor was the best part of wearing it.
--I learned that bodypaint will actually stay on, unless you keep constantly tucking your sash in because you were too much of an idiot to pin it down.
--I learned that taking artistic liberties with an in-game model is actually probably a good idea if it translates into something looking ridiculous irl.
--I learned that Blizzard will not include "post-op" in your stage announcement, and it will irk me for awhile. Screw you, televised censorship.
-I learned that I really shouldn't have let my husband rush me and put my nails and fangs on before we left. :( More than 3 hours of sleep would've helped too!

Thank you to Chrissy and my painting friends, without whom this costume would've never seen the light of day. <3
