League players fall in love with charming Blood Moon Evelynn cosplay

League of Legends fans have been absolutely charmed by Veena’s Blood Moon Evelynn cosplay, with the American-based cosplayer showing it off for the first time at KatsuCon a couple of weeks ago and receiving widespread praise for it.

Blood Moon Evelynn is a majestic take on League’s resident succubus. The champion is often a hit at cosplay conventions as one of the game’s most popular characters, and it’s easy to see why.

American cosplayer Veena decided that she’d give the champion’s oriental-themed skin a crack, but added a few twists on the original design.

Blood Moon Evelynn is one of the succubus’ most popular skins.

With the help of concept artist and illustrator Erai Violett, the cosplayer pulled off a stunning rendition of League’s Blood Moon Evelynn skin.

Although it’s not a perfect recreation of the original players see in game, it didn’t need to be, with Veena instead choosing to add her own personal flair.

Instead of donning a black dress to enchant her enemies, Veena opted for a red and white robe like Erai used in their 2018 design.

Where Veena did stick to tradition though was in the small touches. Her nails were the same fluorescent blue as Evelynn’s in the skin, while a lot of effort went into making the perfect headdress.

From the horns on the front, to the makeup, Veena looked the part in her cosplay of League’s succubus. She pulled off a hairstyle closer to her blonde compared to the crimson red of the skin, instead adding a few touches of the vibrant color in her hair extensions.

LoL fans couldn’t help but be infatuated with the cosplay, with many professing their love for the twist Veena put on the costume thanks to EraiViolett’s design.

Veena’s costume demonstrates that sometimes a perfect replica of a cosplay from the source isn’t the only way to make a great costume.

With her own personal touches, the American cosplayer made the cosplay suited to her, and still managed to pull it off as well as anyone who’d adapt the full get-up for themselves.

League of Legends cosplayer Wanderlustica, who made a name for herself as a cosplay extraordinaire, has brought feisty ADC heroine Xayah to life in all her Vastayan glory ⁠— you won’t see many LoL cosplays much better than this!

In 2017, League of Legends developers Riot Games decided to try something a little outside the box for their next champion release. Instead of dropping just one character, they debuted a duo ⁠— feathery Vastayan lovers Xayah and Rakan.

The pair fit like a glove. She was an ADC, and he was her support. The pair ⁠— and their sassy love ⁠— soon became fan-faves in the League of Legends fandom.

Of course, like any League favorite, there’s been plenty of cosplay takes on the pair. Now, that includes famous cosplayer Wanderlustica, who donned a stunning costume of the LoL “baddy” for an Instagram photoshoot earlier this month.

Wanderlustica’s stunning Xayah cosplay is absolutely amazing. She’s got every detail on point, from the Vastayan’s big busy ears, to her blue and red battle robe, and even the skull adorned on her shoulder from her old victories.

The Xayah outfit also had the purple hood the ADC wears into every game on Summoner’s Rift, as well as her glorious purple and blood-red feathers. Luca rounded out the cosplay with knee-high wrap boots, and tough steel vambraces.

“I definitely loved wearing this cosplay, I love badass characters and Xayah is definitely one of them!” the Dutch cosplayer said of her League cosplay. “I’m so in love with it.”

Luca, who often makes her cosplays before showing them off on Instagram, was actually sent this Xayah outfit from Ezcosplay. The cosplay company had put the outfit together for Wanderlustica, who then added makeup and effects.

Wanderlustica is far from the only League cosplayer to unveil a fancy new outfit recently either. Ariatamagotchi got into the Halloween spirit earlier this month with a perfect take on Bewitching Nidalee, and Sweet Angel donned an awesome Akali cosplay in late September.

Luca also has more LoL projects in the works too. She’s already set to reveal her new K/DA cosplay soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that in November!
