World of Warcraft cosplayer goes viral as stunning Shandris Feathermoon

A World of Warcraft cosplayer has gone viral for her perfect Shandris cosplay, which has left the WoW fandom stunned. The talented model “wouldn’t look out of place in the next Warcraft movie,” she looks that much like the night elf!

With deep lore, a massive fantasy world brimming with colorful characters, and plenty of heroes and villains on both sides, World of Warcraft is one of the most popular franchises to cosplay in the costume-making community.

WoW cosplayers will often turn to the game’s most iconic characters, from sorceress Jaina Proudmoore to the treacherous Sylvanas Windrunner ⁠— who will be the main antagonist for Shadowlands ⁠— others choose their own favorites.

That’s exactly what Polish cosplayer Tsuki Iseki did with her Shandris cosplay.

Tsuki debuted her take on the Alliance night elf on Oct. 9, before posting it on Twitter, Reddit, and Instagram at the end of the month. The outfit, which we have to admit is one of the best we’ve seen, was an instant hit with the WoW fandom.

Tsuki’s cosplay captured Shandris Feathermoon perfectly; she wore the night elf warrior’s blue and gold armor, and thigh-high brown boots. There were green gems encrusted across the cosplay, and a quiver on Tsuki’s back in the photoshoot.

The Polish model added much of the detail in her face too. She donned a long blue wig, and put on two long elvish ears to part her locks. Finally, she added long eyebrows ⁠— iconic on a number of WoW elves ⁠— and put in yellow contacts to complete the look.

Tsuki also rubbed in shiny body spray, to “set her dyed skin aglow.”

There was one last thing she needed for her Shandris cosplay though. Feathermoon is never without her trusty bow, and Tsuki made sure she had an intricately carved one to wield while in the forest for her October photoshoot.

The Shandris cosplay was certainly popular in the World of Warcraft fandom too; Tsuki’s post on /r/cosplay netted more than 3,000 upvotes and comments in just two days, while a separate post on /r/wow raked in just over 1,000 more.

“This one wasn’t as complicated as some of the others I’ve made, but I made sure to include lots of details!” Tsuki told Dexerto after posting the cosplay.

“My favorite part, as always, was painting and weathering all her fabrics.”

“I decided to create something of mine with a combination of Shandris’ old design from her World of Warcraft figurine and a model made by an artist called Daerone at DeviantArt,” she explained. “I have to say that I really like the outcome.”

Tsuki admitted she chose Shandris for two reasons. One, she plays night elves in WoW. And two, she loves characters that aren’t as popular; especially Shandris: “I like her a lot. Her design, her lore… she’s just so cool for sure!”

This certainly isn’t Tsuki’s last time in Azeroth either. She’s already working on a Tyrande Whisperwind cosplay next, and wants to make an Onyxia outfit.

“I’m already putting together my design for Onyxia, which I want to debut at BlizzCon! At least, I’ll see how it goes. Hopefully I get to the final!”

Valorant cosplayer re-invents herself as quirky genius Killjoy

Killjoy might be the inventive genius in the Valorant roster, but one of her biggest fans deserves the title too after she dished up a remarkably accurate cosplay. 

Valorant’s Agents are all unique. They have different strengths and weaknesses in certain situations. Killjoy, for example, is an absolute menace to face due to her ability to crowd control using gadgets.

However, that’s not the only reason fans love her. She’s hip, quirky, and a genius both on and off the battlefield. Interestingly, she’s a popular choice among cosplayers too, probably because something is alluring about her vibrant style.

Killjoy might be a genius, but she acts and dresses in a way that many people can relate to.

Luminavira recently shared a picture of her incredible Killjoy cosplay on the Valorant subreddit, and it made quite an impression. It’s only been up for several hours and has already gained more than 500 upvotes and received plenty of positive feedback.

“Everyone makes fun of German efficiency,” she said, reiterating one of Killjoy’s lines. “Just keep laughing as you use all my gear.”

“I can finally show you some Killjoy pictures,” she added. “I am so proud of this Cosplay, and I love this girl so much. I know a lot of you guys don’t know Valorant, but I hope you like it anyway.”

Luminavira made the costume herself, and she has done a fantastic job. The beanie, glasses, jacket, t-shirt, ripped jeans, gloves, and shoes all look like the real deal. It’s a perfect blend of green, yellow, grey, and purple.

The accessories were a nice touch as well. She included the bracelet, hip bag, leg strap, and even a replica rifle. What’s more, the attention to detail is second to none, and people were quick to notice.

“Wow, that’s amazing!” said the top comment in the Reddit thread. “You got even the tiniest details right. Even the pants are ripped in the same place. You look fantastic!”

“Introducing the real-life killjoy. This is seriously amazing!” said another. It’s a sentiment that others have shared, and for a good reason. Luminavira managed to bring her to life in the most incredible way.

Luminavira is all smiles, and rightfully so. Like many cosplayers dedicated to the craft, she put in a lot of time and effort, and it shines through. Capugraphy’s top-notch photography played a part too.

It’s always nice to see your favorite characters come to life. Valorant players, especially those who love Killjoy, have been truly mesmerized by this piece. Luminavira deserves all the praise she’s getting.
