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.

The anime takes place in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo where alien beings called Angels have humanity on the brink of destruction. Characters like Asuka Langley pilot giant Mecha called Evangelion to fight back the enormous threat.

Cosplayer Esther ‘keikocosplay’ transformed into the heroine on Instagram, and wowed with her incredibly faithful portrayal. The artist nailed the character’s look, mirroring her flowing auburn hair that runs down her back, as well as her signature red clip accessories. 

Photographer ‘MichelTakuma’ captured Keiko posing in Langley’s red pilot bodysuit. Her depiction of her uniform is full of details, such as her black under-armor with circuits, and the green light that runs across the top of her neckline.

In another picture taken by ‘bcwphoto’, the cosplayer re-created an iconic scene from the anime where Asuka is wounded in the eye. The character is often depicted wearing an eyepatch after the important scene. Keiko’s gorgeous true-to-life depiction of the moment is chilling. 

Evangelion was written and directed by renowned Japanese artist Hideaki Anno. Despite its release over two decades ago, the series is as popular as its ever been. Its influential story has had a major impact on the medium.

Those that have never seen the iconic shows are in luck as the original adaptation can be watched on Netflix right now. Its multiple spinoffs and sequels can also be caught on streaming services Funimation and Crunchyroll.
