While we share the full list below, here are two of our favorites: Sylvanas Windrunner (below left) and Ranger General Sylvanas (below right). And @Dark.Lady.Cosplay is appearing at St. Pete Comic Con 2022 on January 8-9 at the Coliseum.
Why World of Warcraft?
@Dark.Lady.Cosplay relates to the giant world with so many different characters. “I love to learn about the characters,” she said. “The characters are so incredibly detailed in who they are I find myself drawn to their stories and how they all intertwine.” And her adoration of World of Warcraft also has become a source of strength and inspiration. “Over the years I’ve fallen in love with so many characters, and I’ve found a lot of strength and inspiration from them,” she said.
Featured below are her cosplays of two of her favorite characters of all time: Nightmare Ysera and High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind. And below are Nightborne Elf Lady Thalyssra, Alexstrasza and Valeera.

Beyond the World of Warcraft
@Dark.Lady.Cosplay’s talent goes well beyond World of Warcraft. A few examples below are Ashe from Overwatch, Emma Frost from X-Men, and Zero from Drakengard. In Overwatch, she most relates to Ashe. “I kinda vibed with Widowmaker for a while and enjoyed her, but when Ashe released I fell in love,” she said, noting “I seem to gravitate towards characters like Ashe and Sylvanas.”
