Four cosplayers from Ukraine have banded together to create an absolutely stunning take on League’s fan-favorite idol group K/DA, putting their own spin on Evelynn, Ahri, Kai’Sa, and Akali.

K/DA have made waves in the gaming music industry since their debut hit POP/STARS back in 2018. The League of Legends four-piece set hasn’t released anything new since, but wild speculation always flurries around the community in the hopes for more collaborations with the popular group.

To this day, they remain some of the most popular characters in gaming to cosplay with their classy get-up always getting fans excited.

K/DA are a fan-favorite group in the League of Legends and cosplay communities.

However, very rarely do you see a group of cosplayers managing to get all four characters together in the same spot. So when Ukrainian cosplayers ‘makusha,’ ‘Marengo,’ ‘MiKa,’ and ‘Sai Westwood’ got together for a photo shoot as the four queens of K/DA, there was even more reason to be hyped.

The group pulled off a number of different looks for the group, straying away from the default style of the group. Popping with pastel pinks and purples, the group’s take on K/DA has a more casual vibe to it.

Makusha took on Akali, with a bit more of a colorful vibe than the base K/DA skin. With a pink tank top and blue sweater, Maku looked as cool, calm, and collected as the shadow assassin herself.

MiKa starred as Kai’Sa, front-and-center in the shoot with the iconic double bun and braid hairstyle. Swapping out the tight fitting pants for a more loose fit, she still manages to pull off the confident aura of the AD carry.

Marengo hit the stage as Ahri, with a more glittery look that differs from the other three. The crisp white is a bit of a contrast to the pinks and purples of the others, standing out as the Prestige skin of the lot.

Finally, Sai stole the show with a great rendition of Evelynn. With knee length boots and a matching one-piece, she’s got the same swagger as the Agony’s Embrace.

While the group often meet up at cosplay conventions around Eastern Europe together, they rarely manage to get together for a group shoot like this.

Marengo described the shoot with her best friends as “the most hard and the most lovely photoshoot in my life,” and you can see the lengths they all went to pull it off.

Getting one member of the group nailed down is already incredible, but managing to assemble all four in such a manner is another level of impressive.

While there’s no set date for when K/DA are expected to release another hit, fans are still eagerly holding out hope that the group will get back together and produce some more great tunes.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is finally here, and cosplayers have been celebrating in the build-up, but one has truly outdone herself with an incredible recreation of Valeera Sanguinar.

World of Warcraft has one of the richest lores and stories in video game history. It’s filled with unique characters in all shapes and sizes and has told their stories for many years.

Now, their stories will continue once again in the latest expansion, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, which is now live. It revolves around the actions of Sylvanas Windrunner, who has ripped open a portal to the Shadowlands.

It’s certainly a dark timeline, but players are thrilled to have been called back into action. However, it’s hard to find anyone more excited than maywedacosplay, a popular Russian cosplayer named Eva.

Eva celebrated the release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands by doing what she does best, cosplaying her favorite characters. She’s cosplayed many World of Warcraft characters in the past, and the standard of quality has always been top-notch.

Now, she’s cosplayed Valeera Sanguinar, a beloved blood elf rogue who has never formally joined either Horde or Alliance.

“Glory to Sin’dorei!” she said, quoting one of the blood elves’ most famous lines. “What characters do you want to see in Shadowlands the most?

Eva’s cosplay is stunning from head to toe. The hair, make-up, and green eyes are on point. However, the real highlight has to be the sheer level of quality in the hood, chest-piece, shoulders, bracers, and leggings.

All the pieces have a perfect blend of crimson-red mixed with gold elven seams. They have infamous green Fel crystals slotted into them, which have a long history with blood elves.

It’s a phenomenal cosplay that deserves all the praise, and the high-quality photography makes it even better.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has already set the world on fire. But Eva’s cosplay will undoubtedly add to the excitement.
