Nidalee has been a staple hero in League of Legends for a long time. But cosplayers like ‘ariatamagotchi’ are keeping her fresh with an excellent recreation of the Bewitching skin, fangs and all.

Nidalee is one of the most iconic champions in the game. She’s something in between a woman and a beast, and she’s a master tracker with sharp instincts and claws who can shapeshift into a cougar whenever she wants. 

What’s more, she’s still a top-tier pick and one of the most contested junglers, even after all this time. Of course, she’s one of the more difficult champions to play. But in the right hands, she can single-handedly turn the tide of the game. 

It’s not hard to see why she’s so popular among players. But she’s a popular choice among cosplayers too. After all, she’s the perfect icon and symbol for embracing your wild side and letting loose, and that’s exactly what ‘ariatamagotchi’ did in one of her latest cosplays.

“I did this Bewitching Nidalee using what I had in my wardrobe,” she told her fans on Instagram. It features everything from the fangs, the hat, the hair, the make-up, the clothes, and of course, the gem. “I edited on the gem also, the ones I had were way too big.”

She was even kind enough to include a list of all the products she used. It had everything from concealer, exit gel liner, and an eyebrow pencil, to fly liner, bronzer, a sandstone palette, and more.

It’s incredible what talented cosplayers like her can do with whatever bits and pieces they have available. She’s put together a stunning piece. The standout for us has to be the fangs, which look like they were plucked right out of Nidalee’s mouth.

Bewitching Nidalee is always a fan-favorite to cosplay when Halloween rolls around.

Nidalee’s Bewitching skin might look easy to re-create at first glance. It could be a simple as slapping on some overalls, a witch hat, and a bit of face make-up. But it’s hard to find one with as much attention to detail as this one. The quality shines through.

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.
