With Dragon Age Day developing, I assumed now could be the right time to share a cosplay that I am nonetheless not satisfied is a nonetheless from an unannounced movie that does not actually exist. There are such a lot of superb characters within 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 explicit 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 due to the “crimson stuff” (thanks, Varric) referred to as Pink 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 large atrocities dedicated by the Templars below 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 will 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 delivered to life in beautiful 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 needs to be among the best ones I’ve ever seen!
Not solely is the costume and make-up scarily near the true deal, the cosplayer’s photoshoot additionally exhibits the character’s decline into insanity because of the crimson lyrium’s affect. All the pieces 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 exhibits the ability of the cosplay neighborhood.
