Create a cloak for new Jaina from World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth!

And again I feel that I am ready to create a pattern for you=) Jaina has such incredible new model in last WoW expansion, I was really excited about to make cosplay on her. I made it and visited my first foreign event – Gamescom, which was held in Cologne, Germany. That was really cool […]

One of the first cosplays I had a go at, which, I believe, is also the best known. The costume was made at the end of 2013. I remember that shortly before that I’d finished working on a cosplay of Chii from the Chobits series and it dawned on me: “I can actually sew!”. And […]
