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.

Ever seen a League of Legends cosplay so good that Riot can’t help but share it with the world? Well, now you have, with Sweet Angel’s take on Akali taking League players by storm.

Akali is one of League of Legends’ most popular characters to cosplay. Whether it be her default skin, or the mega-popular K/DA variant, people love to show off as the Ionian assassin.

However, few manage to grab the eyes of Riot as much as Sweet Angel. The talented Italian cosplayer decided to take on Akali as her most recent project, and while the costume looks simple, it was anything but.

Akali is one of the most popular League champions to cosplay, but few catch the eyes of Riot.

“I thought it was a simple costume, but it required a lot more attention and time than I thought,” she told fans on her website.

It took Sweet Angel about 100 hours all up to create the Akali cosplay ⁠— and you can see every bit of hard work and time that went into it. From the handmade wig, to the dress, and even Akali’s smoke bombs, Sweet Angel didn’t miss a beat.

Everything that you see was basically handmade. Sweet Angel sewed all of the fabrics together, stitched everything up, and made it tailored not only to herself, but true to life to Akali’s design.

She even designed Akali’s signature Kana, using EVA foam so she can carry it around without too much hassle.

She added every detail to the weapon like she did the costume too, from the leather handle all the way down to the marks and blemishes on the battle-worn blade.

The cosplay is so good that even the official League of Legends account couldn’t help but react. Sweet Angel got a retweet on the cosplay from the near five million follower account, and they don’t hand those out lightly.

As for her next cosplay, Sweet Angel hasn’t revealed her plans just yet. However, she’s got a few more shoots on the way, and if they’re anything like this Akali cosplay, they’ll be worth a gander.
