Jaina: Revenge. by ShaeUnderscore Jaina: Revenge. by ShaeUnderscore
Finally have some photos as Jaina after the fall of Theramore!
It was at Japan Party this week-end, I'll write a journal about it tomorrow I think! :)

I don't like that much what they did with her in this expension, but still, I'm happy to change a bit from cute characters...
So yeah, before I receive tons of comments saying I'm ugly and stuff again: THIS IS ON PURPOSE!!
//SPOILER ALERT//


Jaina got her city destroyed by a mana bomb, she's saved right on time by Rhonin but is injured from the...radiations, I guess? of the mana explosion.
Her hair turned white (except a little weft that remains blonde), and even more she just saw her people die in an horrible war, and those who didn't fell on the battlefield died in the explosion. Her city, the people she saved from the Scourge years ago, her apprentice (THAT DAMN CUTIE, I was like screaming "wtf noooo not the little gnome omfg!!" while reading the book...), she lost everything...

So yes, she's tired, sick, and feels terrible. And wants to avenge her people who died from such a horrible, cowardly attack.
I don't cosplay to look pretty, I want to *try to* bring some reality to characters I like, to tell stories, to make pictures that portray characters in a realistic way; to show you how I imagine they'd be if they were real :)
That's the part of cosplay I prefer!

Anyway! I hope to cosplay as Jaina again in the future. W3 version, also others from the book, and improve my WoW (before MoP!) version...I can't wait to work on that :)

I am also not a fan of what they've done to Jaina (I still need to read the book for all the info).

I really love how this looks. Your expression seems so painfully fitting with it, like seriously looking at a real life image of Jaina.

Thanks a lot :)

What I don't like is that it seems that they don't know what to do with her.
One patch she's just sad but don't want to take revenge anymore, one patch later she wants to kill everyone, etc... :/

I think part of the problem is too many male writers.
I feel like they don't have enough female insight to be able to properly write for women in the game.

I have a seething huge hatred for Jaina, she never been a good character.

But this is one amazing and stunning high quality photo and costume, so both thumbs up for that! Extremely well made and amazing capture.

And, really? I think Jaina was a very good hearted person before the fall of Theramore.
This being said, she's not my favorite character of Warcraft, in fact I didn't like her at all before making the cosplay and learning more about her, haha!

Well I think its more my personal preferance. They dumbed her down a lot from the transition from WC3 to WoW. Not that she was good in WC3 but she was a lot better.
Blizzard are simply not good at making strong female characters (that arn't orcs) to be honest. Tyrande is another example of a decent character made stupid and silly for the masses.

Jaina was just more hypocritical with the whole "I am neutral, really! i just let the alliance use my camp and town to launch massive assaults on the horde that I promised I wouldnt. But I am neutral, really!"

Then again, Sylvanas was dumbed down too so it isnt just alliance characters before anyone call me bias :P
Even if the "new" sylvanas personality is a lot better, her model is horrible.

I agree, I really prefered the characters in Warcraft.
They seems to loose maturity in WoW...Well, they don't make a great use of them in WoW in my opinion.
I guess it's hard to develop character's stories in a MMORPG, even more when there are so many important NPCs :(

And I agree for the new Sylvanas model ._. It looks great on Alexstrazsa but I don't like it on Ysera and Sylvanas, I think it doesn't match their personnality and attitude...

Exactly. While blizzard can make good stories, the maturity of the story is often black or white in therms of morality. Sylvanas is a great example of a person that is very grey-ish in therms of morality and Forsaken as a whole is probably the closest wow comes to complex characters.
Though, sadly, a lot of roleplayers still tries to make it black and white and its a real damned shame.

As for the models.. Sylvanas should have a unique forsaken-elf model. Not a elf-elf model with dark skin. Give her some rotten skin and stitches like she should have!
Ysera should also be given an overhaul in therms of her model, less Alextraza wannabe and more into a unique one and personal.

It seems the maturity of female characters comes down to how little they wear, sadly.
