Guild Wars 2 - The Grand Duchess by xPandorae Guild Wars 2 - The Grand Duchess by xPandorae
Edit: You can see our performance here

So last weekend me and *Medowsweet finally got to wear our Guild Wars 2 costumes! We've been loving this game since Guild Wars 1 (xD) so we really wanted to put all of our effort into these cosplays and show how much we care!

I loved Faolain from the first second because she is not just a typical villain, but a real thought-out character with a wounded heart. The backstory of her and Caithe is just too tragic, and I hope that one day they can be together again <3 Yes, they are a canon couple! How cute is that xD
Anyhow now she's all evil and she's the leader of the Nightmare Court. >3 Muahahaaaa

With these costumes, Liza and I competed in the ECG preliminaries and won! :D :D :D We'll be representing the Netherlands at the finals in Paris! I am so excited! :D

Worn at Anime 2013, the Hague

I was so excited to see your finished costumes! They are absolutely beautiful .... T-T
I'm really glad you won, you deserve it! That's a lot of hard work.
And you also have great pictures =)
Haha, it would be great for you to find people who have other costumes of Destiny's Edge :D

Yes, it would be awesome to meet with people who made Destiny's Edge costumes, and have an epic photoshoot. Secretly I'm dreaming of making Eir someday but I really don't know how or when xD

Well, uh, yeah. xD With a lot of cursing, crying and help from my partner xD It's supported on my hair, actually, so I didn't even have to go bald for this costume (hooray xD)

I love Faolain so much! :heart: And it was just amazing to see you as her. ... while I was Caithe!! I almost can't believe we really did this. Whenever I see the photos or videos I just don't have this realization that it is us. o.O I guess we spend too much time being completely obsessed with these characters and now... we suddenly somehow managed to look like them! It's just.. I can't... ... and you looked amazing honey. :heart: I'm so glad I can share things like these with you. :love:

This is so awesome, I've seen fullbody shots elsewhere of you and your partner and I just love how you've made these costumes, the textures and colors is amazing and your paint work is just astonishing! Also just... the headdress.. ugh <3 You wear it so well!
Congratulations on the win, it's well-deserved!

HOLY LKAJSHLKJAHELKJWLE MOLEY. That make-up is actually PHENOMENAL, Sophie. In fact, is it very clever make up or is it a mask? I can't tell! :rofl:

I really love the details in this. Those materials must have been carefully picked out to find the perfect ones; it really does show. I always get dazzled at the effort you guys always put into your cosplays :iconwowplz:

It is a little bit of both, actually ;) A lot of make-up, but I'm also wearing latex prostetics to alter the shape of my face. :)
Thanks so much! <33
