“My open hands will reward my friends, but let my enemies beware!”

Cosplayer @AshleyOshley trotted this downright regal Varian Wrynn gender-bend costume out for the Blizzcon 2016 Costume Contest and took home 2nd Place for the Alliance. With such exquisite detail sculpted into the former King (Queen?) of Stormwind’s armor it should come as no surprise that Ashley also made Varian’s vaunted sword, Shalamayne, split into two separate blades, just like in the game.
