World of Warcraft Cosplay: Sister Benedron (Illyne) Cosplay 06 OCT 2013

Sporting a stylized version of the Avatar set, Sister Benedron is a human priest featured in DC Unlimited’s World of Warcraft: Series 3 action figure set. Illyne, the french cosplayer best known for her extensive Tomb Raider cosplays, obviously took a liking to the look, as here she is bringing Sister Benedron to life in a wonderfully detailed cosplay session!

The priest is the master of healing and preservation, restoring his wounded allies, shielding them in battle and even resurrecting his fallen comrades from death. While he has a variety of protective and enhancement spells to bolster his allies, the priest can also wreak terrible vengeance on his enemies, using the grand powers of the Holy Light to smite and purge them or the devastating powers of the shadow to decimate their minds. The priest is a diverse and powerful class, highly desirable in any group and capable of fulfilling multiple roles.

Priests practice a complex, organized form of spirituality built around moral philosophy, the worship of a particular deity (such as Elune) in some cases, and/or idol worship, rather than around the reverence of the elements that shamans practice, or the close divine connection with animals and the wilderness that druids maintain. Priests serve not only as influential religious figures in their respective societies, but also as powerful practitioners of divine magic, which they use to heal and protect, or harm and weaken.

Devotion to the faiths of Azeroth leads many priests to the paths of courage and heroism. In dark times, priests carry the Light of faith with them as a reminder of the powerful forces at work beyond the comprehension of the peoples who walk the land. Powerful healers with an intimate connection to the divine, priests are empowered with abilities that aid them in times of dire need.

Priests comprise quite a varied group in Azeroth. A female priest is called a “priestess”. Many are followers, in some manner, of the Holy Light. Some priests choose to be pyremasters or High Priest, while some of the most experienced become epic priests. There are also racial restrictions to some titles, such as witch doctor for trolls and Priestess of the Moon for night elf females.

Tomb Raider – Legend Cosplay: Lara Croft (Illyne) Cosplay 30 DEC 2012

After the disaster that was Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness, which threatened to completely sink the franchise, development duties was taken away from Core and handed over to Crystal Dynamics, who went on to release the critically acclaimed Tomb Raider: Legend in 2006, once again restoring Tomb Raider to its rightful status amongst gamers.

Noted French Tomb Raider cosplayer Illyne celebrates Legend in this shoot, once again picking up Lara Croft’s dual pistols and slipping into something a little… shorter.

Lara Croft is the self assured thrill seeker, treasure hunter and archaeologist, on which the Tomb Raider series hinges, and is never seen without her handy dual wield pistols, heavy boots and of course comfortable shorts.

Once again Crystal Dynamics took her into some pretty spectacular and uncharted places, where there was plenty of platforming, puzzle solving and the occasional seeing off of beasties to take care of. Amongst the locations visited includes Tiwanaku (Bolivia), Paraiso (Peru), Tokyo (Japan), Ghana, Kazakhstan, Cornwall (Great Britain), and the Himalayas (Nepal).

As for the story? Well as you can well imagine, it revolves around some pretty ancient and mysterious relics once again! :P

Mortal Kombat Cosplay: Skarlet (Illyne) Cosplay 11 NOV 2012

French cosplayer Illyne is better known for her numerous outings dressed up as Lara Croft through all the various game incarnations, but here she swaps out her pistols for some far sharper – and bloodier!

From the 2011 Mortal Kombat reboot courtesy of NetherRealm Studios, comes… Skarlet!

Skarlet is an intense warrior created by Shao Kahn using sorcery and the blood of countless warriors, and is only ever released as a last resort. Her sole purpose is to discover Quan Chi’s true reason for attendance at the Mortal Kombat tournament.

Skarlet originated as a rumored character in Mortal Kombat II. During the game when choosing Kitana and Mileena, the palette swap would turn to red instead of blue (Kitana) or purple (Mileena) and so create an unnamed red female ninja. Netherrealm Studios confirmed that the name of the character had been decided to be Skarlet, and in March 2011 she was announced as one of Mortal Kombat’s first two downloadable characters.

She uses kodachi swords and kunai knives.

Tomb Raider: Underworld Cosplay: Lara Croft [Wetsuit] (Illyne) Cosplay 30 SEP 2012

Hands down one of the best Lara Croft cosplayers around, French cosplayer Illyne once again tackles this iconic female gaming character, grabbing her guns, donning the instantly recognisable wetsuit, before strutting her stuff as the Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider: Underworld release.

The thrill seeking, gun toting archaeologist with a taste for adventure, Lara Croft returned in Tomb Raider: Underworld, released in 2008 for Eidos by development house Crystal Dynamics, who had previously produced Tomb Raider: Legend and Tomb Raider: Anniversary.

Underworld is the eighth instalment in the Tomb Raider game series, and its story continues on from the events in Tomb Raider: Legend, but in the process also addresses unexplained plot elements that came from the Tomb Raider: Anniversary remake of the original 1996 Tomb Raider release.

Again this action adventure platformer has Lara solving tricky puzzles, interacting with her environments and taking on a host of opponents and creatures with her trusty dual pistols, shotgun and submachine guns, and for a change, often doing all of this at once!

A new melee combat system was added and an interesting adrenaline moment system was introduced to replace the specific button press sequences that had littered the previous Crystal Dynamics’ games.

Once again Lara is pushed all over the place during the course of the adventure, with settings including the Mediterranean Sea, Niflheim, Coastal Thailand, England, Southern Mexico, Jan Mayen Island, the Andaman Sea and finally the Arctic Sea!

So in other words, just another day for the hard working Lara! ;)
