To celebrate the return of the LCS, Stella Chuu has stunned audiences live at the Riot Studio with an amazing Dark Elementalist Lux cosplay to help cheer Counter Logic Gaming on.

Pulling off a cosplay is one thing, but trying to keep it true to a team’s colors while maintaining the same feel of the character is another.

However, if there is one person in the cosplaying world that could do it, it’s Stella Chuu. The American cosplayer has done League of Legends cosplays before, but this time she was recruited by CLG to transform the luminous lady into a mascot for their League squad, and it was outstanding.

Showing off the Dark Elementalist Lux outfit on January 26 during the LCS Spring 2020 Opening Weekend, Stella Chuu’s cosplay looked impeccable.

Chuu remade Lux’s staff with the CLG logo at either end, and changed the purple accents of the Elementalist Lux skin to the team’s iconic turquoise blue.

She also recreated Lux’s neckpiece emblazoned with the CLG tag, topping it all off with a blue crown and a purple hair-do.

She looked right in place next to the CLG tent, helping the long-time LCS team attract more fans as 2020 wears on.

She wasn’t the only cosplayer to help them out across the opening weekend, with the team also enlisting the services of Alfred Hightower and Annjela Saet to cosplay Aphelios and Ashe respectively.

Both Hightower and Saet’s cosplays were as on the ball as Chuu’s, pulling off black-and-blue variations of the champion’s base cosmetics and making sure to get CLG’s logo front-and-center.

While the cosplays would have certainly caught fan’s eyes, CLG’s gameplay on the Rift could do with a little bit more help. They currently sit on the bottom of the LCS table without a win to their name after four games, and their schedule isn’t getting any easier.

However, they can find some solace in their attempt of winning the content game. Employing one of the best cosplayers in the business to promote your brand was a great idea for LCS’ opening weekend, and hopefully their blessing can help the team find success soon.

A talented cosplayer brought Persona 5’s Ann Takamaki to life. The artist went viral on Instagram after transforming into the character’s Phantom Thief alter ego, Panther.

The Persona franchise originally made its debut back in 1996 on the PlayStation. However, the series became a mainstream success in 2016 with its fifth entry. Players and critics couldn’t get enough of its story about the Phantom Thieves.

The PlayStation 4 title was such a hit that it even got an ultimate edition called Royal in March. Celebrating the beloved release, a skilled cosplayer brought the RPG’s heroine Ann Takamaki to life with a jaw-dropping costume.

The story centers on a group of misfit high school students who acquire supernatural powers. The group ends up calling themselves the Phantom Thieves, and learn how to steal the desires of corrupt adults to change their hearts.

Cosplayer Vlada ‘tniwe’ transformed into popular character Ann Takamaki, whose alter ego is Panther. Incredibly, the artist faithfully captured the heroine’s iconic red bodysuit – which is designed after a feline.

Holding the Ann’s signature whip in her left hand, Vlada accurately re-created the character’s pose from the RPG. She even included little details in the picture, such as the warning police tape that pops up during the battle victory screen.

In another shot posted to social media, the cosplayer gave fans a full view of her latex costume. The cosplay is so true to the game that it even includes the tail which hangs off the end of her back zipper.

The cosplayer also posed for a close-up shot, nailing Takamaki’s look effortlessly. The artist perfectly captured her blonde braided hair which is styled in ponytails. Her striking blue eyes peer out as she lifts the mask off her face.

In 2020, Persona 5 got a new edition called Royal. The remaster not only included a whole new character, but greatly expanded the game’s dungeons and boss fights.

The Atlus franchise has continued to explode in popularity. For the PlayStation 5’s launch, the 2016 title is included in the new PlayStation Plus collection.
