There are such a lot of wonderful characters in the Dragon Age-verse, and a few not-so-amazing ones, however within the spirit of sharing one thing not usually seen, there may be one specific Dragon Age 2 cosplay that brings Knight-Commander Meredith Stannard to life in beautiful element.
The Knight-Commander of Kirkwall is a extremely controversial and provocative character for the restrictions positioned on mages within the second Dragon Age recreation. She later goes full-on batshit loopy because of the “pink stuff” (thanks, Varric) known as Red Lyrium. However let’s be actual, she was on the downward spiral lengthy earlier than the corrupted model of lyrium made it into the image, with a mistrust for mages in Thedas that drove her to look away from huge atrocities dedicated by the Templars underneath her cost.
Whereas skirting Hawke’s rise to the elite in Kirkwall, Meredith continued to descend into insanity in a metropolis the place the veil is skinny, blood magic is excessive, and demons could be discovered round each nook. This character is understood for her baggage and an immense quantity of self-justification, making her an extremely complicated archetype within the Dragon Age universe, a complexity that one cosplayer dropped at life in gorgeous element:
This cosplayer goes by “Commander Behemoth on Twitter @BehemotCat and her tackle the Knight-Captain is nothing wanting breathtaking. From the chantry setting within the background to the harrowed look in her eyes, this rendition of Stannard must be among the best ones I’ve ever seen!
Not solely is the costume and make-up scarily near the actual deal, the cosplayer’s photoshoot additionally reveals the character’s decline into insanity as a result of pink lyrium’s affect. Every thing about this set is ideal, and I could not wait to share forward of Dragon Age Day on December 4. It is unimaginable and actually reveals the ability of the cosplay neighborhood.
