Cosplay Wednesday – Dynasty Warriors 8’s Wang Yi
Hailing from Singapore, Emily “jokerofmanipulation” Fliptable shows off her custom-made cosplay of Wang Yi. The character in the game is a blood thirsty warrior who enjoys slaughtering her foes in the field, and her signature twin trishula three-spear trident and Frostbite are present and accounted for (both crafted by her friend Data-Ronin). each picture eloquently captures each pose. She had no experience with making armor up to this point, but she’s happy how it turned out. A regular at COSFEST Asia, she showed off this rendition at the 2013 version of the festival.
So why did she choose to cosplay Wang Yi? She admired Wang Yi’s constant sad and sadistic expressions, as well as the aforementioned bloody nature. Can’t argue with that logic! She hopes to do Wang Yi’s police version — stay tuned for a future Cosplay Wednesday featuring her work!
Special thanks to Int. Photography for the pictures!
