Shot of the Siren


More loot? Don’t mind if I do. I’ve love Borderlands, I’m not realy fan of shooter games since first person shooter usually has this serious or gloomy ambiance around but so far there are only two first person shooter games I loved so far which is the Borderland Series and and Team Fortress 2. Why? Because they have this fun and comedic spice with the game and takes out the seriousness and stress on these games.

WindoftheStars or real name, Mel has been cosplaying for almost 10 years already and has build herself a position, image and respect in the cosplay industry. She have created over 80 elaborate costumes, for herself and (surprisingly) for others which originates from movies, video games, comics, anime, manga and from her very own creative mind. Many of her costumes have received prestigious awards and have been featured in print and online publications around the world, and like what I said earlier, she earned her position in the cosplay industry thus she’s been constantly invited as a Guest of Honor, Judge, Booth Model and Panelist at conventions. Her current hobby lead her to become a professional tailor, seamstress at the top tier alterations shop in Northern Nevada.

Today she’ll be cosplaying a female character from Borderland named Lilith. Lilith is one of the few “Siren” class. She is originally from the planet Dionysus and is one of six Sirens, a group of women with unbelievable powers. Lilith’s action skill is called Phasewalk, which lets her turn invisible to enemies (but not to her teammates, to whom she appears as translucent blue), move much faster, and cause a damaging shockwave (Phase Blast) upon entering and exiting, well I just wish she doesn’t phasewalk when we’re at the bed, just kidding.

I love 3 things about this cosplay, first is the model and costume itself since she was able to copy the Lilith from border with pink/red undershirt (oh yeah), yellow waist wrap, the chains which was, if I remembered correctly, used on me last night and specially the wig and the color gradience of it. Second is the photography which captured the very ideal angle for cosplays and Lastle is the editing of the photo and the final touches of the costume which made it really look like a comic themed cosplay with the thick black outlines.

Bringing characters to life one stitch at a time. That has been WindoftheStar’s own slogan in life which lead her to where she is now, known to the cosplay world and tailoring industry. Let’s keep supporting and encouraging her in each and every cosplay she makes to further motivate her in creating and more elaborate cosplay by following her on Facebook, Twitter, DeviantArt and Tumblr.
