This Diablo III Cosplayer Is Ready For Her Holy Crusade

Not only is Astrokerrie Cosplay’s Crusader a gorgeous, competition-winning cosplay, it’s also ready for battle. Literally.

As a multi-talented craftsperson, Perth-based Astrokerrie indulges in a bit of LARP alongside her cosplay pursuits. When it came to making a costume to enter in Oz Comic Con’s Australian Championships of Cosplay, she decided to kill two birds with one stone and make an impressive costume that was also LARP-safe and easy to move in, including that giant shield.

“I made [this cosplay] to push myself with armour, and it was the only reason I entered Oz Comic-Con,” she explained. “I’m not really a competitive person so I won’t be entering again unless I find a costume I love as much as the Crusader.”

She says the costume is light and easy to wear and move around in — which is vital if you’re going to be LARPing in something for extended periods of time. It’s something I’ve never quite managed to achieve, either. Maybe I should get Astrokerrie to design all my costumes from now.

Aus Cosplay is a regular feature that showcases the best local cosplay talent out of Australia and New Zealand.


  • Love the battle detail on the tabard however the shield appears to be folding outwards?

    • “Terrible photoshop work”?

      A little extreme, don’t you think?

      As a professional Photoshop user I think it’s pretty good (well the 1st and 2nd ones are a little jarring, but that’s down to personal taste more than anything). The link for Vestiige Photography is to a Facebook page that shows some real photographic talent.

      • Not extreme imo, I use Photoshop professionally as well. The 2nd one is the worst.

      • Well now I feel bad. If it makes any difference I love the photography, just not the very heavy editing applied.

  • Hayley, this is an odd request. Is it possible to get more cosplay articles that feature cosplayers who don’t use heavy photo editing in their pictures?

    I like the ones where we can see the effort the cosplayers put into their costumes rather than hoe skilled the photographer is with Photoshop.

    • You can check mine and Astrokerrie’s page for more images and even BTS videos that show off her awesome costume if you’re after less Photoshop-heavy edits 🙂

  • Fucking Johanna, she’s the tankiest mofo in all of the diablo-verse i swear. looks stunning
