Default Finally, 40K cosplay done right!

Was having my daily browse of DeviantArt when I came across a young lass from Norway who's been busy making a Sisters of Battle cosplay outfit.

While geeks naturally migrate to the girls dressed (or half dressed) as Dark Elf wyches, I thought that this was a pretty good effort.

I'll admit it is well done, but before I declare win on this, there is a greater issue: cosplay. Sure, having your other like 40k and any other hobbies/habits you have makes it easier to support said without being driven insane, but is it good to be this into 40k? Also, how far does this go? It has some scary/interesting possibilities. But, as I said, very well done.

That which doesn't kill me has made a tactical mistake.

Reminds me of some of the stuff I saw at GenCon last year. A pretty great costume.

Sorry about being unclear and coming off as vulgar. I'm glad that she is a member and this enthusiastic about the hobby, however I was thinking in the abstract, not having a girlfriend myself and not having seen any except another member who have been supportive of 40k. Again, I applaud her enthusiasm and craftsmanship (don't get into me about terminology) in making such a detailed costume, even more so after seeing that thread.

...I didn't think you were being vulgar, I was merely pointing out that there was already a thread regarding this costume posted by the person who made/was wearing it.
