League of Legends cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has taken players by storm with an enchanting Spirit Blossom Lillia, bringing the Bashful Bloom to the real world ⁠— including the four legs.

Lillia might have only recently arrived onto Summoner’s Rift, but League of Legends fans have already fallen in love with the Bashful Bloom. She was whipped into a lore whirlwind on release with the Spirit Bonds event, where fans got to know the new champion a little bit better.

Her design has also inspired many cosplayers. However, none are yet to take on Lillia quite as impressively as Scottish cosplayer anaelic.

Lillia might be a centaur, but that hasn’t stopped anaelic from taking the project on.

She decided to pick up the League of Legends champion as her next project shortly after her release, and has been working on a full head-to-toe cosplay ⁠— or should we say, head-to-hoof.

Right now, anaelic has finished the more ‘human’ elements of Spirit Blossom Lillia. This includes her ornamental dress, which is a mix of fabrics tied off with a neat ribbon. On top of that, she’s 3D-printed Lillia’s horns, holding them together with a flower on her head.

The costume is still a work in process for the Scottish cosplayer though. She still intends on getting ears and a wig, and she is even going to go the extra mile to create Lillia’s censor. After all, anaelic wants this to be her “biggest cosplay yet.”

“I’m making good progress with this cosplay so far, and I’m nearly finished all of the sewing parts. I ordered some more materials this week and I am very excited because I have some really cool plans for how to make some certain aspects of it,” she told fans on Instagram.

This progress includes Lillia’s centaur body ⁠— which anaelic is designing from scratch, with a bit of inspiration from Ginny Di’s Centaur of Attention book. She hasn’t quite finalized that section yet, but it’s on its way.

“Am I making the centaur body?! The answer is yes! I’ll be following Ginni Di’s amazing method in her Centaur of Attention book, so I’ll be referring to that a lot in this build,” she added.

That’s pretty impressive considering she’s coming off the back of an incredible Dragonslayer Diana cosplay, where she donned herself head to toe with armor, and handcrafted Diana’s sickle too.

An Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayer faithfully recreated Ty Lee’s iconic Ember Islands beach look. The talented artist hit the sands as Azula’s bubbly acrobatic friend.

There are many memorable scenes from The Last Airbender, which originally made its debut on Nickelodeon in 2005. However ‘The Beach’ story in Season 3 has alway been a fan favorite.

Cosplayer ‘daniella.claire.cosplay’ depicted the hilarious scene with her transformation into the acrobatic fighter. The artist nailed the character’s look, capturing her upbeat personality by holding her long braided hair in her hands.

Photographer ‘thegeekstrong’ took a shot of Daniella posing in front of the shore while wearing the character’s iconic white and red Fire Nation swimsuit. The outdoor backdrop truly brings the Ember Islands to life.

In another post on Instagram, the cosplayer faithfully re-created the moment from the episode where Ty Lee asks a beachgoer to stand in front of the sun to create shade for her to rest in. 

This isn’t the first time the artist has dressed up as the Avatar heroine. In September, she collaborated with cosplayer ‘minakess’ who portrays Princess Azula. Daniella wore Ty Lee’s regular pink outfit while sitting next to the series’ villain.

Despite ending in 2008, the Last Airbender has seen a major revival in popularity after Netflix added it to its platform in April. The Nickelodeon animation celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2020.

Those interested in the franchise can watch every single episode on the streaming service right now. The series sequel, The Legend of Korra, is also available, and takes place 100 years after the story of Avatar Aang.
