German cosplayer ‘Inori’ has adapted yet another League of Legends character into a brilliant cosplay, this time captivating fans with a stunning Elderwood Ahri outfit.

Elderwood Ahri is one of the Nine-Tailed Fox’s many skins in League of Legends. She is a much-beloved character after all, and is one of the community’s favorites to adapt into cosplay.

There aren’t too many examples of the Elderwood skin out there though given how recently it was released. However, German cosplayer Inori might have created the best of the bunch so far.

Sharing the cosplay on Instagram, Inori’s take on the Nine-Tailed Fox has captivated players. She has crafted everything from head to toe, from the detailed floral skirt to the intricate head dress.

Bright with pinks, greens, and other floral tones, Inori’s cosplay looks dragged straight out of the splash art.

While she was hoping to show this off at a convention in the coming months, sadly it doesn’t look like things are opening up again. However, for a quarantine project, this looks to have been a great use of time.

There is one key element that fans might have noticed missing: the fox’s iconic nine tails. After all, Ahri is the Nine-Tailed Fox ⁠— it’s in her extended title.

Inori hasn’t created tails for the foxgirl, but she has improvised in the next best possible way. She painted a background, including a wispy set of pink and blue tails, to stand next to while posing in her immaculate cosplay.

Ahri isn’t the only League character Inori has adapted over the past few months. She also created True Damage Akali and Arcade Miss Fortune cosplays, while also sharing her past cosplays like True Damage Qiyana.

Once conventions start getting up and running again, this will be one cosplay fans will be flocking to find Inori in.

Killjoy might be the inventive genius in the Valorant roster, but one of her biggest fans deserves the title too after she dished up a remarkably accurate cosplay. 

Valorant’s Agents are all unique. They have different strengths and weaknesses in certain situations. Killjoy, for example, is an absolute menace to face due to her ability to crowd control using gadgets.

However, that’s not the only reason fans love her. She’s hip, quirky, and a genius both on and off the battlefield. Interestingly, she’s a popular choice among cosplayers too, probably because something is alluring about her vibrant style.

Killjoy might be a genius, but she acts and dresses in a way that many people can relate to.

Luminavira recently shared a picture of her incredible Killjoy cosplay on the Valorant subreddit, and it made quite an impression. It’s only been up for several hours and has already gained more than 500 upvotes and received plenty of positive feedback.

“Everyone makes fun of German efficiency,” she said, reiterating one of Killjoy’s lines. “Just keep laughing as you use all my gear.”

“I can finally show you some Killjoy pictures,” she added. “I am so proud of this Cosplay, and I love this girl so much. I know a lot of you guys don’t know Valorant, but I hope you like it anyway.”

Luminavira made the costume herself, and she has done a fantastic job. The beanie, glasses, jacket, t-shirt, ripped jeans, gloves, and shoes all look like the real deal. It’s a perfect blend of green, yellow, grey, and purple.

The accessories were a nice touch as well. She included the bracelet, hip bag, leg strap, and even a replica rifle. What’s more, the attention to detail is second to none, and people were quick to notice.

“Wow, that’s amazing!” said the top comment in the Reddit thread. “You got even the tiniest details right. Even the pants are ripped in the same place. You look fantastic!”

“Introducing the real-life killjoy. This is seriously amazing!” said another. It’s a sentiment that others have shared, and for a good reason. Luminavira managed to bring her to life in the most incredible way.

Luminavira is all smiles, and rightfully so. Like many cosplayers dedicated to the craft, she put in a lot of time and effort, and it shines through. Capugraphy’s top-notch photography played a part too.

It’s always nice to see your favorite characters come to life. Valorant players, especially those who love Killjoy, have been truly mesmerized by this piece. Luminavira deserves all the praise she’s getting.
