A Unique Warcraft-Style Avatar Cosplay Opportunity

Love and Warcraft Monster Design

What gaming cosplayer wouldn’t want to have a real-life replica of their avatar look to strut around in? Created by professionals? Well, they’re in luck. The Tony Award-Winning Alliance Theatre’s recent production of In Love and Warcraft was about a girl living in both her real life and her online gaming life. For the production, the costume shop created some amazing real-life avatars, designed by Lex Liang. Due to a lack of storage for these sizeable costumes, the Alliance is announcing a rare sale of these pieces from their Atlanta-based shop. For questions and purchase information, please contact Alliance Costume Shop manager Carol Hammond at Here are the details:
