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.

Apex Legends cosplayer drops jaws as a pistol-wielding Loba

A stylish, flirtatious, luxury thief, Loba Andrade is obviously one of cosplayers’ favorite Apex Legends characters. A fact easily justified by Diana Aleshina, who recreated the chic cat burglar’s look.

At nine years old, Loba saw her parents get murdered by a shadowy, spooky hitman. That led to her needing to fend for herself, pickpocketing a way toward luxury and, eventually, toward entry into Apex Legends as a “High Society Thief.”

Clothed in a sophisticated, all-white ensemble, with touches of gold bracelets and fingerless gloves, the fashion-forward character rocks braided red locks as comfortably as she wields her pistol and staff. 

Unsurprisingly, the entire aesthetic, down to splashes of red makeup surrounding her eyes, has been a hit with cosplayers. And Aleshina, who goes by ‘aquarelled’ on Instagram, has put her own spin on the look, while maintaining the essentials.

While some of the pieces of clothing or props might not be identical to Loba’s in-game gear, the overall sentiment rings strongly through. A white, low-cut tank top replaces the Legend’s low-cut, modified corset. An unzipped leather jacket replaces Loba’s feathered, miniature jacket. And a simple black choker replaces the luxury thief’s golden choker.

But she’s got got red eye makeup, a vibrant red braid, and appears very, very ready to make use of her brandished pistol and staff.

And although visibly obvious, aquarelled reaffirms that she shares a certain kinship with the Legend by quoting Loba in her caption: “‘I know what I like…and I know how to get it.’ It’s absolutely my character.”

Outside of cosplay, Aleshina appears less hell-bent on revenge as Loba, but equally multifaceted in her interests. Her Instagram bio maintains that she is a permanent artist, a singer, a comics girl, an anime lover, and a “bootybuilder.”

While one can’t be sure that Loba has ever had time for comics or anime, a number of those other preoccupations most certainly fit her character and, as such, it is no surprise that Aleshina had such a comfortable time recreating her look. 

As of yet, there has been no word on if the cosplayer will bring her talents to some of Loba’s unique legendary skins. But one can assume that if she sees a look that she likes, she will get it.
