(cos)WED: Ulbandi Cosplay as The Lich King


Written by Riri (@lillyums)

This week's Cosplay Wednesday welcomes UK cosplayer, Ulbandi Cosplay.  She is here to showcase her Lich King cosplay from the Warcraft III!  The Lich King from Warcraft III is an unimaginably cruel and sadistic master and lord of the dead. He merged with Prince Arthas Menethil who was one of the most evil and powerful beings of Azeroth, and so The Lich King's dominant personality is that of Arthas.  Remember our previous feature of a Sylvanas Windrunner cosplay by Tree Dragon Cosplay? Slyvanas Windrunner is one of The Lich King's most hated enemies. Seems like he's just one big bad boss!  Check out how Ulbandi Cosplay tackled this project and brought The Lich King to life.

How long have you been cosplaying??
Since 2014.

Why did you choose to cosplay this character?
Been a fan of Warcraft III since it came out & fell in love with Arthas' character.

How long did it take you to complete?
About 8 months.


Any difficulties when constructing the costume?
The helm & pauldrons were definitely the most difficult/technical. I'd never done an armour build before this costume and the design is super complex.

What do you love most about cosplaying this character?
Embodying one of my all time favourite villains :)

Where did you debut this costume? If you haven't... where do you plan to debut?
Debuted at London MCM Expo, October 2015.


What's next? Cosplay related of course...
Currently working on a Mettaton cosplay!

This cosplay is so fantastic, so much detail and work put into The Lich King! Looking forward to seeing your next project!
