Cosplayer Ksana Stankevich stunned League of Legends fans with an incredibly well made K/DA Akali outfit.

K/DA is one of League of Legends’ most recent virtual bands, having made their debut at the 2018 World Championship. They became an instant hit, gaining millions of views on YouTube, as well as being incredibly popular as in-game skins.

The band is formed of four characters, Ahri, Akali, Evelynn, and Kai’Sa, and have become prominent in the cosplay world, with fans cosplaying as both the entire band and their favorite individual members.

Ksana Stankevich chose to become just one member, Akali, and absolutely nailed it with an arguably perfect cosplay. The outfit is incredibly accurate - to the point that it is hard to tell if it’s officially made by Riot Games’ or a fan version.

Every detail is on point, with the jacket, hat, top, and hair all being exactly the same as the K/DA version - featuring the classic purple, gold, and white colors.

The trousers bring the outfit together, with the segmented portions once again mirroring the K/DA character. Even the finer details such as the finger-less gloves and boots are identical.

Fans absolutely loved the cosplay, dubbing it a perfect recreation, with comments like “If not for the title I would've mistaken this as a 3d rendered fan art”, "Oh God, 3D models are gaining consciousness!" and “Riot's stepping up their statue product line with this one” filling a Reddit thread.

It’s easy to see why people feel this way, as it is truly a breathtaking take on Akali, and may be one of the best K/DA cosplays out there.
