Sylvari Cosplay Progress - Make-up and Prosthetics by xPandorae Sylvari Cosplay Progress - Make-up and Prosthetics by xPandorae
Edit: Finished costume >>> here <<<

So basically it didn't take a lot of gaming for me and *Medowsweet to be convinced to cosplay something from Guild Wars 2! Since it is an awesome game and it has even awesomer characters.
Liza immediately fell in love with the Sylvari, a new race that appeared for the first time in this game. They are some sort of humanoid plants, very inquisitive and curious and generally adorable. I was more of a Norn at first, but in the end the Sylvari wormed their way into may heart as well <3

And so we stumbled upon the story of Caithe and Faolain, two Firstborn Sylvari who grew out to be star-crossed lovers and sworn enemies. And they are both so pretty and interesting! Our decision was made quite quickly!

All in all, long story short, we are gonna cosplay Caithe and Faolain, and these were the first tests to see, if we could pull it off :D Hope you enjoy!

Upper two pictures is *Medowsweet as Caithe
Lower two is me as Faolain

It's not that heavy, actually! I can easily wear it for around six hours before it really starts wearing me down, so I think that's pretty acceptable :)

Thank you so much! Actually, it's just simple facepaint meant to paint children's faces. :) We're planning to upgrade to some more high quality greasepaint in the future, but for the tests, these will do.

May I ask, since I am interested in putting together a cosplay of my own sylvari - how did you go about doing the branches for Faolain's hair/head? It looks spectacular!
Reply
:iconxpandorae:
xPandorae Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013  Student General Artist
Thank you! <3 And *brofist* since you're also a Sylvari cosplayer ;)
I made Faolain's head with a lot of research, cursing and trial and error, actually. I'm a bit hesitant to give you exact instructions at this point in time because my headpiece is also still very much under construction. I need to test and work on it a lot more before I can actually say, 'yes, this is safe to wear on your head for a whole day, you can do this'.
So I hope you understand that and will bear with me for a bit. :) Once the costume is finished I will be able to explain everything in detail.

I hope so! And yes, legendary. :D If you get the chance later this year and ArenaNet's doing it again, you should go to Gamescom and enter their cosplay contest! They did that a couple years back, it was very cool.

Oh man, that would be like a dream come true. I'd never really thought about going to Gamescom, but it's not even that far from here... thanks for the heads-up :D Definitely looking into it now :D
