Popular cosplayer Sofia ‘Paperwings_xd’ has left League of Legends fans impressed yet again, this time pulling off an incredibly accurate cosplay of the new LeBlanc Coven skin.

With over 150 champions to choose from, League of Legends has plenty of unique characters for fans to recreate through art or cosplay.

However, the mid lane assassin, LeBlanc might be one of the flashiest champions there is in League, and has been a staple pick in-game for top players like Faker and Febiven, in recent years.

LeBlanc has one of the most unique styles out of all champions in League of Legends.

While LeBlanc is regularly seen in the League of Legends meta, she is not a champion that too many have cosplayed, as her unique style and outfits can prove to be quite challenging to remake.

Although one League cosplayer, Paperwings_xd, did not shy away from the task, deciding to tackle LeBlanc’s latest “Coven” skin and sharing her impressive attempt online.

Paperwings received tons of support and praise for her attention to detail, when sharing her efforts on Reddit and Instagram, revealing that she had gone all out, mirroring the deceptive mage’s crown and collar in her cosplay.

'Time to make an appearance.' – Le Blanc . In other words: I'm back and I'm so happy to be finally able to cosplay again after my surgery two weeks ago. I've been in pain every day since then and visited the doctors so many times, because there were lots of complications. But now I'm starting to feel a bit better every day. In the meantime I finished my Coven Le Blanc cosplay. I'm so proud of the collar and crown and I'm feeling like a princess in this costume, I'm just a bit sad you can't see my fancy earrings in this photo. I hope you enjoy it anyway. Also, thank you guys so much for your patience with me and for still being here. ❤️ . #cosplay #leblanc #coven #leblanccosplay #cosplayer #covenleblanc #lb #leagueoflegends #league #costume #feather #crown #witch #mid #leagueoflegendscosplay #cosplayarmor #gaming #leaguecosplay #game #riot #riotgames #girl #selfie #midlane #nofilter #lol #cosplaygirl #makeup #germancosplay #skin @leagueoflegends @leagueoflegendsde 3D crown model by @3deerprint, although be careful when buying their models, they uploaded my picture to advertise their products on Instagram without my permission.

Paperwings also mimicked LeBlanc with identical makeup and eye contacts to complete the look, before revealing just how much work had to be done for this cosplay.

“Since the skin was released, I really wanted to cosplay her and now I finally finished her.” she admitted. “It was a ton of work to glue and cut each feather individually.”

The popular cosplayer has previously impressed League of Legends fans with other incredible champion cosplays such as her recent take on Star Guardian Syndra.

Some of her other cosplays include champions like Miss Fortune, Ahri, Nidalee, and more, as she continues her trend of bringing these League of Legends characters to life.

A talented cosplayer made waves on Instagram after bringing Darling in the Franxx protagonist Zero Two to life. The artist’s transformation into the anime heroine will leave fans of the series in awe.

Darling in the Franxx made its explosive debut in 2018, and became the breakout anime of the year. The hit project was a joint collaboration between popular creators CloverWorks and Studio Trigger.

To celebrate the series, prolific cosplayer Zekia ‘aru.rinh’ created an insanely accurate costume of the show’s lead protagonist. Her faithful portrayal of the pink-haired heroine is so good, she truly becomes the real life Zero Two.

The anime takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where humans are on the verge of extinction from monsters called Klaxosaurs. To fight back, pilots control massive mechs called Franx, which need two people to operate. The most powerful character in the series is the half human hybrid, Zero Two.

Popular cosplayer Zekia ‘aruh.rinh’ went viral on social media after sharing her transformation into the heroine. Photographer ‘lostdumplings‘ captured the artist posing in the character’s signature red and white pilot bodysuit.

Zekia faithfully portrayed Zero Two’s iconic look, which includes her flowing pink hair and headband which covers her two red horns. The anime protagonist has the objects growing out of her head as a result of having Klaxosaur blood in her.
