For the release of Diablo IV, Blizzard Entertainment asked me to bring a character from the game to life! I instantly fell in love with the new Necromancer design, as I really love the gothic style and armor sets of this class. In addition, I’m a huge fan of the Blizzard universe! In 20 years I created already almost 20 costumes from World of Warcraft, Diablo or Starcraft. Another cool project was the Barbarian from Diablo III for example! Therefore I was not only super excited for the release, but also working with Blizzard Entertainment in general! At the end I somehow got crafting super powers and was able to finish the whole costume in only 2 weeks!
To create all fabrics parts from scratch I mostly used faux leather and curtain fabric. I made all armor parts then made completely out of EVA foam. The weapon took me then only 3 days and I mostly used PVC pipes and foam as well. I’m really thankful for my husband Benni who did all the patterns for the weapon and armor. Please check out my Necromancer blog entry if you are curious how the costume was made!
We also made a full making-of video for this costume!
