League of Legends’ Jinx has been one of the game’s most popular AD Carry champions since her debut, and now cosplayer ‘Evvils’ has brought her to life in all her manic glory. 

Jinx, the Loose Cannon, has long been known for her penchant to want to do nothing but blow things up, which has put her at odds with law enforcement across Runeterra. This cosplay from Evvils may not have the same penchant for destruction, but is undoubtedly has whipped LoL fans into a frenzy.

Evvils’ Jinx cosplay features a fully realized Fishbones, the Rocket Launcher. While it’s non-functioning, it still looks like it could pack a wallop if swung. As with any good cosplay, it’s rounded out with matching contacts that perfectly capture the manic red-eyed gaze of Jinx.

Evvils has been making waves with her Jinx cosplay at MAGFest, where she recently thanked fans and fellow cosplayers alike for photoshoots with her.

“As much as I shit on this game, I have to admit, it helped me get through college, and I’ve made some valuable relationships because of it,” Evvils said of her cosplay to celebrate League10. “I started playing because I saw Jinx’s character design when she was announced and was instantly intrigued. Even if I don’t play as much anymore, the game will always have a special place in my heart!”

Jinx debuted in League alongside one of the first music videos for the game, “Come on Shoot Faster,” which kicked off a rich musical tradition at Riot for theme songs for various character releases. While not every character has received a fully animated video, several events and introductions have. It could be said this video was a predecessor for wildly successful hits like K/DA and True Damage.

Evvils has much more cosplay in her arsenal, including Hinata Hyuga from Naruto, various My Hero Academia characters, and many more, which she proudly shows off on her Instagram, working with various photographers at conventions.

Evvils is currently on the rise in the world of cosplaying, currently with a follower count of 13.4k on Instagram.

A Demon Slayer cosplayer went viral on Instagram after sharing her true-to-life take on Mitsuri Kanroji. The artist’s stunning transformation into the Love Pillar will leave fans of the hit anime in awe.

Demon Slayer’s debut in 2019 was explosive as the series has quickly become a worldwide phenomena. The anime is so popular that its first theatrical film Mugen Train is on track to becoming the highest-grossing movie of all time in Japan.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the beloved story by bringing popular character Mitsuri Kanroji to life. The artist’s insanely accurate portrayal of the fierce heroine made waves on Instagram due to how much she looks like the fierce warrior.

Mitsuri Kanroji is one of the popular characters of the hit 2019 anime.

Demon Slayer cosplayer’s real life Love Pillar

While the dark anime largely centers on the Kamado siblings, the last half of Season 1 heavily focuses on the fierce warriors of the Demon Slayer corps. These strong swordsman are called Pillars, and they are able to control their breath and unleash incredible powers against their foes.

Cosplayer Melodi Kızılgün went viral after bringing the Love Pillar Mitsuri to life with a jaw-dropping costume. The artist accurately depicted the character’s black and white Demon Slayer corps uniform, while faithfully mirroring her striking pink and green braided hair.

Photographer ‘toyfromearth’ captured Melodi posing with the heroine’s iconic katana, which has a blue hilt and pink hearts underneath the fabric. Recreating a scene from the show, she readies to slay demons with an incredibly detailed prop of Kanroji’s deadly weapon.

Despite only being uploaded on November 22, the social media post already collected over 8.8k likes at the time of writing. Her gorgeous portrayal of the heroine made massive waves in just under 24 hours.

Demon Slayer originally made its debut in 2016 as a manga written by renowned Japanese writer Koyoharu Gotog. However, it exploded in popularity after studio Ufotable released its anime adaptation.
