Hello, my name is Ashley O’Neill and I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Art has always been an important part of my life, and one of my most popular pastimes. I got into cosplay as a means of expressing myself more creatively than traditional art and to try something new! I love to challenge myself with art, and I thought cosplay was an adventurous way to do so. My goal with each cosplay is to learn something new and bring my characters to life in the most accurate way I can. I pride myself in craftsmanship and adding an extra layer of detail and polish to all my finished costumes.

Queen Varian Wrynn | World of Warcraft | By Oshley

I made this cosplay of a female (Queen) Varian Wrynn in the year 2016. I took inspiration and the design from the Alliance king, Varian Wrynn, from World of Warcraft's Legion expansion cinematic and handcrafted this cosplay over the course of roughly 8 months. I absolutely LOVE the Alliance and my Alliance kings, so I poured my heart, soul, time and money into making this costume come to life! At it’s completion in November 2016, I was honoured to receive second place in the BlizzCon cosplay contest.

CRAFTING SUMMARY:

The armour is made from Worbla thermoplastic and EVA/craft foam, free molded to my body shape, and detailed with my Worbla scraps. The undercoat was sewn and trimmed with a heavy fabric to compliment the bulk of my armour and the cape is a hefty wool fabric that was both sewn and handsewn. The sword, Shalamayne, is pink foam board, carved into the sword shape. The base is covered with Worbla for stability, detailed with Worbla and the gems were casted with resin. The middle sphere lights up with an LED to emulate Shalamayne’s glowing center, and the sword also splits apart to copy the way Varian splits it apart on the Broken Shore. Aaaand since I get a lot of questions about how I made my shoulders, I made the base of my shoulders out of cardboard, then I layered on expanding foam which I carved to the lion/gryphon shape with a knife. From there I used craft foam, Apoxie sculpt, filler and Worbla to create the shape and details.

The parts of this cosplay that make it feminine and unique from the cinematic model are my personal touch and are not copied from an outsourced design. I can’t ask you not to copy me, but if you intend to copy my personal touches, please at least give me credit! If you tag me, I will usually see your cosplay too and I think other Varian cosplayers are awesome!

Valkyrie Mercy | Overwatch | By Oshley

Mercy was the very first character I played in Overwatch back when I tried the demo at BlizzCon in 2014. Her aesthetic is my favourite of all the Overwatch heroes, and I just thought she was the cutest! Her wings and headdress in her legendary Valkyrie skin caught my attention and after making the headdress during a ‘small’ summer project for fun, I decided to just make the rest of the damn cosplay, lol

The armour, staff and swords are handcrafted from Worbla thermoplastic and EVA foam. The clothing was all homemade and I wired a motor and LED circuit in the staff to make the top spin both ways and light up yellow and blue in an indicator on the body of the staff just the way it does in game. The wings are made from pink insulation foam board, knife carved, sanded and covered with Worbla thermoplastic too. The blue blades of the wings are home-dyed PETG plastic sheeting, cut to shape. Nothing is 3D printed. :)
