The Best Cosplays Around

As a beloved World of Warcraft character, the amount of Sylvanas Windrunner cosplays out there is insane. But which ones are the best? 

From the simple graphics of Warcraft III, to the chainmail wearing badass we see in World of Warcraft: Legion, The Queen of the Forsaken has a fair few opportunities for great cosplay. Yes, that also includes the dress that she wore on her original World of Warcraft model, in which she looked more like an Alliance leader than the mighty Horde. Here, we’ll count down the best of the best out there, and talk about what makes them such a great tribute to the character.

It’s not often that you see a Sylvanas cosplay with a scary edge, even though she is a walking corpse, after all. Maybe it’s the pose, or the editing on the original picture, but this cosplay by KRIZYOW just gives that extra scare factor to the usually gorgeous Banshee Queen. That extra twist made this one stand out against the rest, and I’m sure you’ll see why, too! 

9. Amaberius

Probably the most iconic look Sylvanas has ever had is this armor set, and I think that Amaberius does a great job of capturing why it’s so loved. The signature purple color to the beautiful hood, everything is made with great attention to detail and clearly with a lot of love. While the colors are a little different to their in game counterparts (as this follows more of her figure’s colors and style, as do a few of the cosplays on this list), it’s still a wonderful cosplay overall! 

8. Bloodraven Cosplay

When World of Warcraft: Legion released in August 2016, Sylvanas’ existing model also got an update. Of course, that means that cosplayers are quickly trying to create new cosplays to keep up – and this attempt by Bloodraven Cosplay at her new updated design is absolutely stellar! The finish on the pieces makes it look like actual armor, a detail that can be hard to master on this level of cosplay. 

7. Kinpatsu-Cosplay

When Sylvanas was added to Blizzard’s MOBA Heroes of the Storm, even I jumped at the chance to play her.  As one of my favourite characters within the World of Warcraft, her introduction sold Heroes of the Storm to me. So when new, elaborate skins and recolors were added to her, cosplayers also got to work. This cosplay by Kinpatsu-Cosplay shows a recolor of her beginner skin, and the contrast from the rest of the cosplays on this list, and the attention to detail, really made this one a stand out pick for the top 10. 

6. Cinderys

Another stellar attempt at the Legion version of Sylvanas’ model, this one created by Cinderys. Cinderys’ cosplays are usually full of detail, and look like what the costume would look like if it were real, which is a great compliment for any cosplayer! This Sylvanas cosplay is no exception to this, and the attention to detail and realism really puts this one a cut above the rest in my opinion. Great work overall from a great cosplayer! 

5. Opheliac Cosplay

Next on the list is another tribute to Sylvanas’ Heroes of the Storm rendition. However, this time we’re looking at a take on her Ranger General skin, which shows us what she looked like before she became the Banshee Queen we know and love. This one by Opheliac Cosplay is a great attempt, as the model itself is incredibly detailed and highly vibrant. A couple of things are missing from this cosplay, but I still think it’s a wonderful rendition on a very hard to master cosplay!

4. Zalaria

I hate to put two of the same type of cosplay together, but this rendition of the same Heroes of the Storm cosplay by Zalaria is just slightly above Opheliac Cosplay’s. The detail and overall finish on the pieces here put this at a little higher quality, and the cosplay remains as vibrant as the skin is within the game itself. Plus, the cape and hood on this is positively insane. An absolutely beautiful attempt at this cosplay! 

3. Narga-Lifestream

Narga-Lifestream’s attention to detail makes for a stunning cosplay. Though in my opinion, some of her others like Jaina Proudmoore and Tyrande Whisperwind are a little better than this, that doesn’t take away from the overall quality of this beautiful Sylvanas cosplay. The detailing on the armor makes this look almost real, and while this follows the figurine’s style, the bow here is possibly the best I’ve seen. 

2. Feyische

Maybe I’m a little biased here, but Sylvanas’ master skin from Heroes of the Storm is beautiful, cosplay or not. I’ve seen a couple of people attempt this, even while watching some of the BlizzCon festivities, but this particular rendition by Feyische is the best I’ve seen. From the detailed editing to the elaborate and true-to-style pieces, I’ve yet to find a fault in this rendition. It was hard not to pick this as my top cosplay! 

1. Tasha Cosplay

There’s not a lot of cosplays that can pull off deviating from the original source. Mostly, when you look at a cosplay, you’re looking for a true to original rendition, essentially looking for that character -- but in real life. However, while this cosplay by Tasha Cosplay does deviate from the original Legion model, the detail and love poured into it makes this one my top pick. Everything from the feathers to the ears looks beautifully done, and is truly the best out there, in my opinion.

And that’s that! My picks for the 10 best Sylvanas Windrunner cosplays on the internet. What do you think of my picks?
