The first time I saw a female Barbarian character in Diablo 3, I truthfully could not distinguish it from the male character. All muscles and just a hint of bosom and hips, it was what a She-Barb should look like in real life. But I was wrong.
Meet 2012 Gamescom cosplay winner Svetlana Quindt, a Barbarian of the gentler sex. Well, not really that gentle considering she is carrying a terrifying sword that could cut a man into two. Ms Quindt is no stranger to cosplay, in fact she has already dressed up as a wizard in an earlier photoshoot.
Ms. Quindt said in a Blizzard interview:
“Guess I have the right body shape for this class and just love to build armored, bulky, and very detailed costumes. And I just love the wild, aggressive, and very cool female barbarian in Diablo III. So, Wei Wang's barbarian artwork was just perfect for my next project."
I have not seen a Barbarian this appealing since Xena: The Warrior Princess. And she was not a Barbarian, was she?
