Popular Twitch streamer Emiru left League of Legends fans mindblown after sharing her incredible cosplay of the Loose Cannon, Jinx, on TikTok.

Emiru has become quite popular for her League of Legends streams and unique cosplays, gaining hundreds of thousands of followers across different social media channels for her efforts.

In one of her latest cosplays, the Cloud9 content creator decided to take on the challenge of recreating the fan-favorite ADC champion Jinx from League of Legends.

Jinx is one of the most popular ADC champions in League of Legends.

While Jinx is one of the most popular Marksman champions in the game, the character’s unusual look can be quite challenging to recreate and is not cosplayed as much as some of the other characters.

However, Emiru shared her attempts at cosplaying the Loose Cannon on TikTok and received overwhelming support from her followers and League of Legends fans.

The streamer was praised for her attention to detail, after perfectly copying Jinx’s outfit and hairstyle before finishing the cosplay with matching tattoos, eye contacts, and makeup.

Emiru even included the League of Legends song, “Get Jinxed,” in the background of one of her TikTok videos, which was specifically made for the champion she was cosplaying.

She also followed up with her own version of the viral transformation trend on TikTok, highlighting just how much work went into this incredible Jinx cosplay with ‘before and after’ clips.

Despite admitting that she was “scared about uploading” her latest cosplay on TikTok, the streaming star’s efforts seem to have gone down well with fans of the popular MOBA.

Although the champion has fallen out of the League of Legends meta in recent patches, Emiru’s cosplay might have inspired some players to become Jinx mains once again.

World of Warcraft has inspired a whole collection of amazing cosplays, but one cosplayer truly brings WoW into reality with her amazing Kyrestia cosplay. 

When it comes to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft universe, there are limitless possibilities to create amazing cosplays. The huge array of iconic characters, coupled with the impressive customization for your own hero or villain, makes the title perfect for passionate fans.

We recently saw cosplayer Cinderys create an amazing Sylvanas cosplay just in time for the release of Shadowlands, which in turn managed to score her Blizzard’s seal of approval.

This time around the subject of this amazing cosplay is Sylvanas’ polar opposite, Kyrestia the Firstborne, the ruler of Bastion.

Kyrestia has become one of The Ascended’s most iconic faces.

2021 has brought with it a lot of insane cosplays, but this one is certainly one of the most memorable so far.

Artist PlexiCosplay (Plexi) has outdone herself with this beautiful transformation. Having painted herself aqua from head to toe, she can be seen adorned in Kyrestia’s iconic white and gold outfit whilst channeling the Ascended queen’s angelic nature.

What your eyes are immediately drawn to are the wings though. Mirroring the sky blue of her skin, their construction is perfect. Tipped with gold trims that tie in with her vestments and stunning recreation of the warrior’s crown, Plexi literally is Kyrestia.

WoW fans are stunned

Considering the wings are, according the Plexi, “15 feet long,” it’s safe to say that fans can’t miss this cosplay.

It’s the wings that have really gotten attention. One fan’s hilarious comment simply wrote: “the wind: I’m about to end this woman’s whole career,” to which Plexi responded “YOU NAILED IT.”

Another respondent was equally as humorous, writing “Kyrestia flight 77 you are cleared for takeoff, proceed to runway 4.”

All of these comments though praised this amazing cosplay, with one comment summing it up: “This blew my mind!!! I thought someone cropped the Archon out and pasted her onto some road!”

It’s safe to say that Plexi has truly embodied the fan favorite Ascended. She’s not only radiant, but emits a ‘don’t mess with me’ aura. We can’t wait to see her next WoW cosplay, as if she keeps going like she’ll be the queen of not just Bastion, but the WoW cosplay scene in no time!
