League of Legends is one of the most popular games in the world and features over 145 unique champions for fans to experience.

As with many of the top video games, there are a number of hardcore fans who look to recreate their favorite characters in the form of cosplay and fan art, and it is no different with League of Legends.

Leona is among the hardest champions in League of Legends to cosplay – recreating The Guardian of the Solari’s detailed armor set can prove a challenge for many.

However, popular cosplayer Cobalt did not shy away from tackling Leona’s Solar Eclipse look and left fans stunned with the awesome results.

Many highlighted the cosplayer’s incredible attention to detail, as Cobalt replicated Leona’s iconic Solar Eclipse armor set to near perfection.

One of the most surprising aspects in the cosplay was her incredible job at recreating the Support champ’s Zenith Blade and Shield of Daybreak.

The popular cosplayer received thousands of likes and comments of support from her followers after sharing the photos of her efforts on her personal Instagram.

This is not the only time that she has brought champions from League of Legends to life, as she has previously cosplayed some of the fan-favorite characters such as Xayah and Ahri as well.

Although League of Legends has been around for over 10 years, creative fans such as Cobalt are still coming up with new ways to bring their favorite characters to life and impress fans of the popular title.

A remarkable cosplayer has flexed her sharp costume skills with a meticulous recreation of Yennefer from The Witcher 3, looking every bit the part of the powerful sorceress.

The Witcher experienced a sweeping success as a game, particularly its most recent third installment, thanks to its rich medieval-inspired world-building, fantasy elements, and complex character relationships.

The TV adaptation that was released on Netflix in 2019 scooped up a new wave of fans who, despite not having played the game previously, fell in love with the world it portrayed, leading the show to go on and trump huge names like The Mandalorian in terms of demand.

Yennefer is one of the story’s main female protagonists. A cold character with a dark past, she captivated fans with her enchanting aesthetic, as well as her complexity of character.

The franchise soared in popularity after the release of the third game, and then the Netflix series took it to another level.

Thanks to the intricacy of the outfits featured in both the game and the show, it remains a rather difficult feat to pull off an accurate cosplay, but DariaSol managed to recreate Yennefer down to the fine details, in a beautifully atmospheric shot.

Her hair is impossibly voluminous, matching Yennefer’s thick black curls that cascade down her shoulders and back. Also, an exact replica is her thick black choker-necklace with a circular medallion that sits between her collarbones.

DariaSol has opted for a beautiful off the shoulder look, a bardot black blouse with the arms wrapped in an intricate ribbon, overlaid with a black corset. This is paired with leather gloves that she is putting on in the photograph.

She sports what appear to be thigh-high boots and socks, with a small gap between that and some shorts. This has then been covered with a skirt that has a wide slit in the side, giving the outfit that extra dimension.

Dario Sol looks like she could drop right into The Witcher universe, her Yennefer recreation looking just as enchanting as her in-game and in-series counterparts.
