The five Spirit Blossom skins heading to League Patch 10.15 aren’t the only ones coming. According to PBE dataminers, there’s another five on the way for Ahri, Riven, Kindred, Cassiopeia, and unreleased champion Yone.

The big summer event that’s been touted for the last six months is finally here. The Spirit Blossom event is coming in Patch 10.15, and with it is a host of new skins.

Currently, skins for Yasuo, Thresh, Vayne, Teemo (including a Prestige one), and new “dreamy jungler” Lillia are open for testing. However, hidden files on the test client have uncovered another five that are due to arrive in quick succession.

Emotes and Summoner Icons for Cassiopeia, Kindred, Riven, and Ahri were added to the PBE on Patch 10.15. While the Icons aren’t visible yet, the strings are hidden deep in the code.

The emotes, however, have been datamined. The “My Champion” emote showcases Cassiopeia with a big blossoming blue lily in her hair. The “Fated Pair” emote has given players a look at what a human Kindred could look like.

Riven’s “Whaddya Mean?!” emote features the Exiled Noxian looking rather disgruntled, while the “Follow…” emote has Ahri looking her charming best in yet another predominantly Pink skin.

While there’s nothing for Yone regarding Emotes or Summoner Icons, there’s something a bit bigger ⁠— leaked splash art. All of the skins have had their splash arts leaked by Brazilian content creator ‘streamiebr’.

The extra five skins will make for a total of ten skins across the event ⁠— the most in a single drop in League history. Not only that, it’ll also include two champion releases: Lillia on Patch 10.15, and Yone some time shortly after.

The Spirit Blossom event is truly shaping up to be the biggest in League history ⁠— and for good reason. It comes just in time for Riot to cap off their ten-year anniversary celebrations for the MOBA, which launched back in 2009.

Lillia, the Bashful Bloom, will be arriving in the mega event, which is set to kick off on July 22. If you haven’t been keeping up to date about Champion 149, we’ve compiled everything you need to know, including her abilities and more, right here.

League cosplayer descends from the heavens as amazing Dragonslayer Diana

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
