There’s a few cosplays out there for Dragon Sorceress Zyra, but none can hold a candle to European cosplayer’s Inaste’s rendition. She’s gone for the full shebang, truly recreating her favourite League champion like it’s just off of Summoner’s Rift.
Zyra might not stand out as one of the most popular League champions to cosplay. Ahri, Lux, Caitlyn, and others often stand at the top of the list. However, the Rise of the Thorns has a dedicated fanbase.
That makes Inaste’s cosplay of Dragon Sorceress Zyra just that little bit more special. Not only did she put effort into one of the game’s more underappreciated characters, but she’s pulled off one of the best League cosplays we’ve ever seen.
Inaste didn’t spare anything on her Zyra cosplay. Affectionately calling the Rise of the Thorns her “baby,” she was going to go all out when it came to recreating one of her most detailed skins in real life.
There have been Dragon Sorceress Zyra cosplays before. Usually, they’ll focus on her outfit — with dragon scales from head-to-toe, big shoulder pads, and a rather detailed wig and headdress.

First photo from yesterday's shooting with @azproductioncosp ❤️ I can tell you he made so many great photos and I can't wait to see the rest of them! Picking my favorites was so hard ? the whole cosplay was built with foam from @cosplayshop.be and painted with @decoart acrylics #cosplay #cosplayer #lol #leagueoflegends #lolcosplay #leagueoflegendscosplay #zyra #succubus #demon #support #foamsmith #artstation #photography #creative #art #gameart #gamer #dragon #characterdesign #conceptart #sorceress #poisonpotato
However, Inaste took it a step further. She nailed the colours and bodyart perfectly to make it look just like the real thing. And, to top things off, she even handcrafted and painted a set of dragon wings to accompany the cosplay.
The entire costume was handmade from foam — wings included — and she also styled a wig specifically for the cosplay.
You could swear it was Zyra straight out of her splash art and in-game model. Inaste wanted to do her baby justice, and she did just that.

All of Inaste’s work is just as detailed. The Zyra cosplay isn’t an exception from the norm, but rather, another piece showing off her dedication to her craft. She’s put an equal amount of effort into cosplays for other League characters like River Spirit Nami and Elderwood LeBlanc.
