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 Pokemon cosplayer went viral on Instagram after bringing popular Sword & Shield character Marnie to life. The artist perfectly re-creates the Galar league Trainer with an insanely accurate costume.

Pokemon’s eighth generation began with the release of Sword & Shield in 2019. The Nintendo Switch title takes place in the Galar region and introduced new characters to the franchise, such as Marnie.

Bringing the wildly beloved character to life, prolific cosplayer Emi ‘kqueentsun‘ transformed into the Gen VIII heroine with an epic costume. The artist’s take on the Spikemuth Trainer will leave fans in awe.

In Sword & Shield, the player technically faces off against two rivals. However, it is Marnie with her Team Yell fanbase that has captured the hearts of fans (sorry Hop!). The heroine heralds from the town of Spikemuth, where her brother Pierce is the Gym Leader.

Popular cosplayer ‘kqueentsun’ made waves on Instagram when she shared her true-to-life take on the beloved Trainer. Her incredibly accurate re-creation of the character’s look truly brings her to life. The artist looks so much like the Galar rival, it’s almost as if she’s jumped out of the screen.

Emi perfectly captured Marnie’s punk aesthetic by mirroring her signature double braided black hair. In the game, the character shaves the left side of her head in the shape of a crown. Cleverly, the cosplayer dyed her wig gray to make the same effect.

In June, ‘kqueentsun’ finished her costume and showed it off on social media. Her outfit is packed full of details, such as Marnie’s choker necklace and silver pendant. She even included the red ribbon that hangs from her ponytail.

Emi also re-created an iconic scene from Sword & Shield, where the Spikemuth rival tries to smile for her Morpeko. Putting her fingers on each side of her lips, the cosplayer adorably mimics the Gen 8 character’s attempt to show happiness.

Despite only releasing at the end of 2019, Sword & Shield has already gone on to become the third highest-selling title in the RPG’s entire franchise – proof that Pokemon has never been more popular.

Those in love with the Galar region are in luck, as the Nintendo Switch title is getting expanded in a major way on October 22 with the debut of The Crown Tundra DLC. Perhaps Marnie will get another story in this epic addon – we can only hope.
