Bungie has also collaborated with nine cosplayers worldwide, including LilyBean, to create their interpretations of Savathûn, the Witch Queen, the titular character in Destiny 2’s latest expansion. Visit the official Bungie blog post to see their amazing creations.

US cosplayer – LilyBean Cosplay

For her take on The Witch Queen, LilyBean wanted to combine the aesthetics of each Guardian class in order to make Savathûn look like a Lightbearer. Elements from each class, including Savathun’s Krill appearance as Sathona, were incorporated into a design that stayed similar to the in-game look while being unique to LilyBean’s vision. The head features spikes that were shaped and painted in reference to the Crown of Tempests helmet, as well as engravings on the mandibles that transform the face into an homage to the Mask of the Third Man. The breastplate was reshaped to appear similar to a Titan’s, and a Warlock-style bond was designed for the left arm, fitted with Hive runes and Savathun’s insignia.

Every piece of the costume was handmade from 2mm, 4mm, 6mm, and 10mm craft foam. Foam clay was also used to achieve the organic textures. The patterns were made in Blender and Pepakura Designer so that the dimensions stayed as close to the source material as possible. The patterns for the belt, corset, and wings were drafted with paper, fabric, and masking tape. The paint job was done with spray paints, airbrushing, and plenty of hand painting in the final stages. Some challenges Lilian faced and overcame with this build were creating the floating shoulder pauldrons (mounted with wire) and making her first pair of cosplay wings. The wings can manually open and close, thanks to an articulating PVC joint. 

Over the course of this build, LilyBean had a blast getting creative with Savathûn’s design and bringing it into reality!
