When I've saw the first preview of the Templar Wizard portrait from the Diablo III CE I instantly felt in love into the idea to mix a Wizard with the Protoss design. At this time in October 2011 even the name was not released (which was the reason why I've called my project "Protoss Wizard"), but I knew already that this will be my costume for the next Blizzcon. Since there was sadly no such event in 2012 I finally finished this costume only a week ago for Blizzcon 2013 now.

From the planning to the final brush stroke of the costume it was always designed for transportation into a suitcase. Since my reference showed only the head of my future costume I was also very free in this step and chose - to make my Blizzard fangirl costume perfect - a weapon from World of Warcraft (Halbert of Smithing) with a adjusted Protoss design as a prop. Over weeks and months I've worked on the design, built the armor, rebuild many pieces again and again until I was satisfied and teached myself the technique to let everything glow in the way I had since years in mind. Overall it is my biggest project so far and after so much worries, crazy stress, depressing fails and problems I just love how the final costume turned out.

Some facts:
- All LEDs are programmed and do not only glow, but pulse over a central controlling and energy source on my back. The programming is not finaly and will still changed until Blizzcon.
- The costume developed during almost 2 years of progress with around 5 different designs.
- I've spent around 1500 € and 800 hours of time for it (usually I need 300 hours for a big project).
- The wig weights around 2 kilos and needs a ton of bobby pins and some painkillers to stay on my head for hours.
- I need around 4 hours to get ready since the fixing of the wig and the armor is not only pretty complicated, but also the wiring needs to be plugged together and tested several times.
- Since the costume is designed for the suitcase I'm able to put my 2.10m polearm and also my costume with no problems inside and even have space for a further costume.

Well, and if you're interested: Here and here you'll find a video of the working LEDs.

To follow the full progress of this costume, just take a look to my Facebook Progress Gallery.

Main material of the whole armor is Worbla.

Einfach klasse *-*

Die Rüstungsteile sind mit einem Goldlack besprüht worden, nicht war?^^

Ich selber werkel grad an einem Cosplay herum, welches auch farblich mit Gold grundiert ist. .-.
 Einziges Problem: Schutzlacke auf Lösungsmittel-Basis lösen bei mir das Gold auf. Hast du einfach einen Schutzlack auf Wasserbasis genommen, oder ist dein Gold ein Besonderes? (meins ein popeleinfaches aus dem Baumarkt :D )

That is dedication. I got a headache from a simple ponytail wig, so I can only imagine. I'm sure it would be breathtaking in person!

Holy smokes.

So I guess this is what you do when doing 'just Wizard' or 'just Protoss' is not enough shiny complicatedness... you do both.

That is one insanely good cosplay and it's just about beyond words to describe how amazing that is.

Also my mind is kind of boggled at the amount of hours put into one costume - over two years, none the less. Also definitely big kudos for the amount of work it is actually put on & wear that, as I imagine that is often an underappreciated fact. Four hours is... well, it's the best kind of 'nuts.'
Too bad I won't have the chance to see this live, but if I lived anywhere near reasonable distance to go to BlizzCon this would amp up the 'worth' of the ticket ;)

Best of luck that everything goes well in BlizzCon.

I love every single thing you make. BUT THIS. This is my favorite. I know you put SO MUCH WORK into it and it really shows.. it even shines! I can't get over how completely amazing this is. And for it to be an original design.. o__o you.. I.. just.. wow. You even made it portable! You're really the one who got me into thinking I can actually do this whole cosplay thing. I know you had to learn everything the hard way and I can't say enough how much I appreciate your tutorials and progress photos. You're the best inspiration and sooooo so so talented. I don't give out compliments to just anyone, but you truly truly deserve every word of praise!
I would fangirl everywhere if I ever got to meet you.. I hope that happens!
Much love from the states~
