Unless you follow Jessica Nigri, this costume design probably isn't too familiar to you. That's because it's a custom humanised version (or gijinka) of WoW's Deathwing, created for Jessica by an artist named Zach Fischer — though other cosplayers are now getting in on the sweet, dragony action.

The original artwork was commissioned from Zach Fischer Illustration, a talented artist with a knack for complicated armour, who's found a bit of a niche for creating gorgeous, cosplayable versions of various creatures and characters for any cosplayer that wants to commission him.
Of course, this is all making cosplay just a little bit meta — when cosplayers end up cosplaying other cosplayers.

Zalaria has also shot some gorgeous images and footage of this costume with Adelaide's I Got Superpowers.
