Crystal Maiden - Dota 2

Cosplay costume entry here: http://www.cosplay.com/costume/439385/

A reference view from AWA 2012:

I left the codpiece gem off, the silhouette was awkward and it wasn't very attractive, and the staff is being repaired Let me know what you think!

MY GOD. THAT IS PERFECT. Every aspect of the costume and it's construction is phenomenal.

The materials used are perfectly done, and the gems and shoulder pieces are beautiful.

The only nit pick I really have is the fact of the no wig/no makeup, as I think it'd boost the look of the entire costume.

But other than that, it is wonderful! Amazing job!

I disagree on the wig/ make up comment, obviously you chose a character where your own hair was appropriate. I like real hair when possible, it lends more beliveability to the overall look. I can see that you are wearing make up, the character simply isn't extreme in that regard, no big deal.

You know you are missing that gem, I hope it gets fixed and returned to the outfit because it is a huge design element (try adhering it at the top center of the gem instead of in the middle, it should hang better that way).
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.

This looks pretty damn cool. I only wish you had a bigger forehead gem, that your leggings were as dark as hers, and that I could see how badass your staff probably is, but as far as an accurate cosplay goes, this is pretty darned good =).
