Child of the Stars by YurikoCosplay Child of the Stars by YurikoCosplay
EDIT: Thanks for the Photographer David Ecsi, who fixed the lights around the lantern! I lthink it looks much better now! :)

"The night elves (or kaldorei, which means "Children of the Stars" in their native tongue of Darnassian) are among the oldest known races in Azeroth, a reclusive and mystical race born during the waking of the world."

This is my second version of this costume, added some details, leaves to the hair, a necklace, more feathers, etc. The first version looks kinda boring now, compared to the new photos ^^;
Check out the full size version! :)

I think we could finally create the athmosphere and the "feeling" I imagined for this character <3

EDIT: because many people asked me about my purple skin color, I just tought it would be easier to explain it here. It's not photoshop, it's bodypaint (like my Tiger cosplay in my gallery). I am using Kryolan creme type bodypaint, because it's cheaper than liquid ones (and I don't have an airbrush either). Getting ready takes 2-3 hours, depending on the character, and the amount of skin I want to color (usually 2 hours for the nightelf, 3 hours for the tiger).

Perfection at it's finest.  You are absolutely beautiful.  :)  Night Elves have been very close to my heart for the last 10 years, and you pull one off flawlessly.  Well done!  :)

I think you used a regular bra for the chest armour, right? And then added on, though. But I was wondering. um, could you direct me to anywhere that would help with shoulder armour, because I have so much trouble with it.

This is one of my wip photos from the shoulder armor: [link]
I cut the base out of craft foam, added details with papermaché powder, then covered it with the same fabric as the base cloths, and added more details at the end.
I hope that helps a bit. :)

Which part do you mean exactly? If you mean the details, these are all craft foam :)

I meant the base of it, but I'm assuming it is done with foam as well? Thank you so much

Makes me want to go out into the forest at night.

Unfortunately many of the anatomical and lifestyle aspects of the Night Elves suggest that sex in their culture likely involves a large amount of biting and thrashing...
*Mangled bodies of male Night Elves, some hanging by their legs from vines attached to a large tree*

Also they are female dominated, so yeah... Not very inviting to prospective males looking for a "good time".
