Russian model Angie Arrow has hit a perfect bullseye with her latest League of Legends Caitlyn cosplay, recreating the ADC’s base skin in stunning detail, from her dress and colored hair, to her iconic oversized top hat.

When you mention ADCs in League of Legends, the feisty Sheriff of Piltover is right up there for the most iconic. Armed with a scoped rifle, the marksman made her first appearance on Summoner’s Rift all the way back in 2011.

Since then, she’s terrorized bot lane with her hunting traps, her 90-caliber net, and her not-so-subtle innuendos. On top of that, she’s got a bold, bright outfit, making her the perfect choice for cosplayers everywhere ⁠— including Angie Arrow.

When you think of Caitlyn, you think of her classic, faux-steampunk Piltover look. The sassy gunwoman wears a flowing purple dress into battle, and adds to her style with buckles, long boots, and of course her top hat.

Cosplayer Angie Arrow hit these right on the head. The series of Caitlyn images, which the Russian model shared on Instagram, showed off the accurate buckles and gloves, all brown and gold, as well as her knee-high hiking boots.

Arrow even had a few extras to spice up the costume too. She clipped on Caitlyn’s choker, as well as her short purple dress. She even brought a life-sized Yordle Snap Trap to the shoot, with a smoking cupcake lure in the center.

Two pieces made the Caitlyn cosplay complete though, even without her usual hunting rifle in sight. One was the wide-brim top hat Caitlyn always wears. Arrow held it with confidence in most photos, a smirk across her face.

The other came from an in-game voiceline Piltover’s sheriff usually utters mid-battle. While she often uses traps on the Rift, she tells her enemies she “keeps the fuzzy cuffs at home.” Luckily, Arrow had a pair on hand to complete the outfit.

The 25-year-old has done plenty of other League of Legends cosplays in the past, from takes on members of the K/DA pop group, to LoL’s warrior princess Irelia, but she also does plenty of other non-themed outfits too.

Arrow isn’t the only cosplayer to share their take on a League character recently either. Last week, Philippino model Kitz Cua unveiled a timely Battle Bunny Riven costume, while Yuuna delivered her take on Irelia on April 4.

Demon Slayer cosplayer transforms into beautiful butterfly Shinobu Kocho

Shinobu Kocho might look innocent from afar, but if you’re a demon and you get too close, you’ll see the deadly side of the butterfly. She’s a popular Demon Slayer character to cosplay, but ‘aka_purin’ has truly put together one of the most beautiful designs yet.

Shinobu Kocho is a fan-favorite in Demon Slayer, and it’s easy to see why. Not only does the Demon Corps member possess incredible powers to heal friends and harm demons, but she is one of the most beautiful characters in the show.

Her personality is a difficult one to channel though. While she’s seemingly innocent on the outside, deep inside of her, there’s a rebellious rage to get revenge.

It’s one thing to make a cosplay, put it on, and take a picture. It’s another thing to really channel what a character is all about, and that’s what sets ‘aka_purin’ apart from the other Shinobu cosplayers.

Sharing the intricate design on her Twitter, the Polish cosplayer spared no expense and left no stone unturned in her flawless design. Her hair and makeup is perfect, even getting the butterflies pinned.

She also created her special katana, which is based on an insect’s “stinger” more than a blade itself. The tattered, battle-worn hilt and blade is a wonderful addition to the cosplay that really ties it all together.

That’s the special thing about purin’s cosplay too. Every element just ties everything together. While even just one of these things would be pretty special in a cosplay, being able to jam it all in one photo is the most beautiful thing of all.

The Shinobu design might be her latest, but she’s unsure on what her next project will be. “I feel like I’m having an art block lately. I just have so many ideas and costumes to shoot but I just can’t put myself up for it,” she admitted on her Instagram.

No matter what it is though, we bet Purin will knock our socks off.
