It’s Diablo mania! Not only is Blizzard’s loot-based action role-playing game Diablo 3 making waves on the PC and PS3, next-gen consoles recently got a port of the game. In honor of the series’ mass-market appeal, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a cosplay worthy of the series.

French cosplayer SakuraFlamme has been in the cosplay game since 2008. However, she has been a Diablo fan since the very first wizards hit the gaming scene in 1996. In the space of six months, she crafted every single detail of her wizard archon armor cosplay (level 60!) by hand. After all, the devil’s in the details.

Since its completion in December 2012, she has taken this cosplay to conventions like Polymanga. You can find a video of her walk down the runway below.
