This will get finished by the end of this year :)

So this has been on my list for a long time now,I will still be going ahead with this possibly for October Expo this year (depends on how much free time I have). Originally I was to be doing an older design of Liliana but about 5 months after I uploaded that version another beautiful design was released where she has her stomach covered (something I alter on costumes as I'm not comfortable with showing mine) and I plan on making the more detailed version but that is dependent on time/funds... I can see this one being expensive!

♥ About Liliana Vess ♥

"Liliana Vess is a planeswalker who wields black magic. Her specialty is necromancy: spells that reanimate the dead, corrupt the living, and unlock power from death.

Beautiful, cunning, and ambitious to a fault, Liliana Vess is quietly one of the Multiverse's most magnetic dangers. Liliana's dark charisma is undeniable—she's agelessly striking and sharp as the edge of a razor.

Liliana Vess's most formative experience was her pact with demonic forces. As Liliana faced the limits of her human lifespan, her health and power were waning. She contacted powerful demon lords, and one dark deal later, she was restored to her height of power and beauty. Today she appears to be in her 20s, but in truth she's over a century old.

Liliana's ambition has led her to interact with beings from all over the Multiverse, but ultimately, Liliana Vess's first love is Liliana Vess. She's convinced that that everyone's in it for themselves just as she is, but that she's just a little better at playing the game than everyone else."

♡ About the Costume ♡

The choker and headdress are made from Worbla; this was the first time used this material and unlike what it's normally used for I decided to play with it and see what happens: I'm very pleased with the outcomes :). The wig is bought and slightly styled.

:D that's epic :) MTG planeswalker group? It'd be amazing :)

by Frederica la Noir on Wednesday, 8 December, 2010 - 19:19

Well there we go then, eternal_aranel Chandra Nalaar, me Jace Beleren, you Lilliana, let's do it!

Hopwfully we could find a Garruk Wildspeaker and an Ajani Goldmane, although we'd need someone with some fursuit know-how to do him. XD

when are you doing it for? i take it its only the new-school planeswalkers? so no Urza, Teferi or Jaina, or any of the originals?

by Fishyfins on Thursday, 9 December, 2010 - 13:36

I'm thinking October Expo or Aya whatever the concensus is really! also have a Garruk (that's for oct expo only though)

I don't see why the original planeswalkers can't be involved :) more the merrier?

Well, i believe i should have cosplay slots available at both those events (will check with friends to avoid getting double booked). but if im free, i may have to whip up an Urza cosplay ;)

by Fishyfins on Thursday, 9 December, 2010 - 14:15

Urza is awesome.

I think October Expo would be best, especially if that's when we can have Garruk.

Amazing work on the choker – I didn’t realise that Worbla could be used for such detailed work

That's the most intricate Worbla work I've ever seen.. Is it comfortable to wear?
