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.

Demon Slayer cosplayer masters Beast Breathing as Inosuke Hashibira

A talented cosplayer embraced his inner beast and transformed into Inosuke Hashibira from Demon Slayer. His fans can’t believe how accurate it is, and neither can we.

Inosuke Hashibira is one of the most hilarious characters in Demon Slayer. He was raised by boars, which is why he’s rough around the edges when it comes to human interaction. He also has a short-temper and unwavering confidence, and it often lands him in hot water.

But despite his flaws, he’s a formidable ally and a powerful Demon Slayer. He’s a skilled swordsman. However, unlike other characters in the show, he prefers wielding two swords instead of a katana. He also taught himself Beast Breathing, which enhances his sense of touch.

Inosuke also doesn’t look like a typical Demon Slayer. Instead of wearing the traditional outfit, he only wears pants, a belt made from brown animal fur, knee-high socks, and sandals. His trademark feature, however, is the iconic boar’s head he wears to mask his face. It belonged to his adoptive boar mother.

Inosuke’s fighting style is courageous and fierce, much like his attitude.

Inosuke looks like he would be an imposing figure in real life. Fortunately, thanks to talented cosplayer Taryn, we know that for sure. He’s cosplayed everything from Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez from Bleach to Sett from League of Legends. They’re all insanely good. However, his Inosuke is on another level.

“Pig Assault! Hashibira Inosuke,” he said. “I missed this guy. What about you? Would you like to see me cosplaying “unmasked” Inosuke? Would you be ready?”

Taryn will undoubtedly nail the unmasked version, and fans would love to see it. However, his masked version is flawless from head to toe. The outfit itself is simple enough, although he re-created it to a tee. But his version of the actual boar mask is out of this world.

Staying true to the character, he took on a martial arts pose in the first picture and two thumbs up in the second. He’s received almost 10,000 likes between them, which is a good chunk of his 90,000 followers.

Taryn takes his cosplaying very seriously, and his dedication shines through in the quality of each piece. All in all, his version of Inosuke is as good as it gets, and he deserves all the praise.
