Dive deep into the lore of Diablo III. We’re taking an up-close look through the world of a Witch Doctor cosplay so realistic it looks like it stepped straight off your PC.

While trolling through the backlogs of recent cosplay websites and company logs, I took a trip down one of my favorite video game galleries: Diablo III. This game is especially close to my heart, as it’s the game my partner and I play together when we’re miles apart for work and can’t be together physically. I came across a STUNNING project on the official Worbla website. As we gear up for the upcoming Diablo IV release, let’s look back on an epic Diablo III cosplay.

The Witch Doctor

The Witch Doctor was one of the newest characters introduced in Diablo III and had a really groovy backstory. Cosplayer Methyl Ethyl took to Worbla to create a live-action version of the cosplay.

“I wander to places beyond imaginings, far from the jungles of my youth. My knowledge has grown vast. The people, they think me banished–shunned to the end of my days. They say I defy the spirits. But I say no, I follow them. The spirits show me alone that the sky-fire is where the end begins. They say this must not be.” – The Witch Doctor

“What I like the most about the witch doctor is I really felt like the team was unified in the vision for that character, so when I got to animate it, I had so much information to pull from that I felt it happened naturally.”

I live to serve the spirits, so I go. There is none but me to answer the call.
