The Queen of Knives is back with a masterful new Lelith Hesperax cosplay shoot.

There is something to be said for choosing your cosplay projects with care for exclusivity. While many characters in the galaxy are popular and cosplayed often, there are some characters that few are bold enough to take on. One of the most elusive of these characters is the Drukhari warlord Lelith Hesperax.

LaSombra Cosplay is an artist who prefers such characters. The rarer it is to see a character cosplayed, the more attractive it is for her to tackle. The most recent example of this is her Lelith Hesperax cosplay, which we have featured before.

In a new photoshoot, LaSombra has partnered with photographer Max Lipetz and retoucher Nikolai Zharov. These new images look like something out of an Aeldari nightmare- they are gorgeous, vivid, and completely fit the dark and twisty nature of Lelith. There is no finer tribute to the Succubus of the Wych Cult of Strife than these images.

“Why do we ride atop these elegant craft? The better to hear the screams of our prey as we ride them down, to savour the fear etched on their faces, to taste the tantalising tang of their blood in the air as an appetiser before the feast. But most of all we ride them so that the slaughter may begin as soon as possible.”

“The Dark Eldar do indeed drink blood, but also tears, and most sustaining of all the raw essence of pain that they wring out of their captives.”
