My Dearest Dragon by murmeltierchen My Dearest Dragon by murmeltierchen
I'm sorry that I've been absend yet again... I was so busy trying to finish my costume for the Blizzard costume contest at gamescom in germany that I totally forgot about dA and even Animexx and facebook. :(

Ah well, better late than never.
On to the picture!

Costume: Wizard (Wei Wang Artwork) from Diablo 3

So after 6 weeks of intense work I can finally show you some pictures of one of my dream cosplays!
It's not fully finished, I'll add several things over the next 2-3 weeks but I already love it the way it is.
And it seems the jury liked it aswell because I actually came 3rd in the contest! :D That's way more than expected! I considered myself really lucky to even be among the top 10 but 3rd?! Holy sh*t!

On friday before the contest my friend, partner in crime and favourite monk ~Knitchi-chan and me had a fantastic shooting with our god with a camera ~linriel777 and this is one of the gorgeous results! I'm so happy with pretty much every picture, probably the best pictures I ever had of a costume <3

I love this picture so much <3 Nelly helped creating it by holding my hair and sleeve up and letting it fall when Vincent told her to so it almost looks like it's windy. :3

Sadly I forgot to put on my bracers and bandages and didn't turn on my dragon staff... it glows purple ._.

But still: I love the costume, I love the pictures, I had the best cosplay partner in crime I could wish for, I came 3rd in the competition and have a Mini Tyrael standing on my desk.
I'm the happiest little marmot in the world! <3

Dankeschön ^_^ Lob fürs Bild gebührt aber Vincent, nicht mir. xD Das Kostüm ist auch bisher mein absoluter Liebling, obwohl es noch sehr unfertig ist.

Ganz vielen lieben Dank <3
Der Stab war mein erster Versuch einer etwas komplizierteren, leuchtenden Waffe, freut mich total dass er was geworden ist ^_^
Ein paar Kinderkrankheiten hat er aber noch, die besser ich bis zur Connichi noch aus.

I was in the crowd with Raznac, and I agree your costume was amazing. Honestly my favourite of the whole 60+ there was. Great show, and all the best for the future :)

I was also part of that bunch, and just as impressed with your work. a well deserved prize (although a place too low in my own humble opinion.) looking forward to more of yours!

This is SO pretty! I saw you on Gamescom and your costume was one of our favourites, so detailed and just awesome to look at.

Your posing was great too! So much fun too watch! First place next year :D

Thank you so much <3 
After I failed horribly at posing and presenting my costume on stage 2 years ago I worked on it and it seemed I was successful! :D 
Glad to know I didn't stand there like a log this time.
First place? Oh dear... I think I still have a long way to go to actually win the contest with the other contestants being so amazing. ^^
