World of Warcraft (Females) Cosplay

Updated on August 23, 2017

The best female World of Warcraft cosplayers on the Web!

World of Warcraft (or WOW, for short) is currently the most popular MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) around. For those who have never heard of it, it's a crazily fun game with breathtaking visuals and awesome gameplay. I should know, I play it almost everyday!

So here is a WOW cosplay tribute that I've pieced together... I hope you'll enjoy it!

Boss Fight: Mother Shahraz - Clara Sims takes on Mother Shahraz

For Blizzcon 2009, Clara Sims took on the role of Mother Shahraz with stunning results! Mother Shahraz is a concubine, and Clara Sims managed to create a seductive aura. Her costume is extremely elaborate and detailed, from the tassled scarf belt to the red painted nails. Just look at the carvings on the sword! Can you believe that it's made from craftfoam? The only thing which I don't like about this costume is the obvious colour difference in skin tone between the fake mannequin hands and Clara's natural skin tone.

A Draenei on a Turtle Mount! - Amazing automated mount!

When I first saw this cosplay, I went "WOW"! Talk about making an entrance! At a Blizzcon festival, this sassy draenei rode in on a fully automated turtle mount. You can't see it here, but the turtle's legs move too! When you're onstage at a cosplay competition, it's important to create an entrance that's in character and to make a memorable impression for bonus points.

Your take on WOW cosplay!

Which WOW character here would you like to cosplay?

Undead Rogue and Draenei Priest cosplay - Gorgeous cosplay, but there is something very disturbing about their pairing....

I just love the dramatic skin colour of the draenei, especially when placed alongside a pasty-pale undead. That said, it's just so wrong to see a horde and an alliance character together (the only time this is appropriate is during pvp!)

While the draenei's cosplay is gorgeous, I have to admit that I very much prefer the undead cosplay (and it's not just because I'm a Horde player!). What drew me to the undead rogue was her face. Do you see the stitches on her face? To give the illusion of a stitched-up face, this talented cosplayer even placed shadows at the "stitches" on her forehead. I love how she even powdered her lips and drew stitches at the corners of her mouth to form one long jagged stitch! She even darkened the area at her neckbone to suit the image of a scrawny undead character. *A hint to you girls out there: you can use this trick too to look skinnier!*

A dreamy night elf

Night Elves are mystical and otherworldly creatures. Known as "Children of the Stars" in their native Danassian language, they are one of the oldest races in Azeroth. They worship the moon goddess Elune and have a close bond with Nature.

One thing I love about this particular cosplay is her dreamy expression. She fits her character so well! I'm especially captivated by her pure white eyes!

Maiev Shadowsong

Warden Maiev Shadowsong played a key role in World of Warcraft during the battle against the Burning Legion. She was later appointed to be the jailer of Illidan Stormrage and is known for the sheer ferocity of her vengeance in hunting down Illidan Stormrage.

This is one of the most impressive WOW cosplays I've seen so far, and again it's by Clara Sims. The entire armour is made from insulation foam and Wonderflex (Wonderflex is a material that looks like plastic, but it becomes soft and malleable when heated. It's often used in making props). Because the armour had to be smooth before being covered with painted, Clara Sims hand-sanded her armour so much that she had to use tape on her fingertips because they were so raw from all that paper-sanding! Talk about dedication to her craft!

Gnomes - so small and so kickable!

I have to admit... Every time I see a little gnome running past me in WOW with bouncy bubblegum pink ponytails and a huge badass weapon, it makes me chuckle. And then regardless of whether you play Horde or Alliance, you wish Blizzard had put in a special ./kickgnome slash command which would send that tiny ball flying.

Gnomes are especially hard to cosplay though, because you need the height (or rather, the lack of it) in order to pull off the look. This cosplayer managed to pull it off though, right down to the cute appeal!

Games Cosplay!

If you could cosplay as a character from a game, which character would you like to be?
