One of League of Legends most popular collection of skins has to be the K/DA line, and one cosplayer used her talents to create an insane look for the most fashionable member Ahri.

Riot Games released the K/DA line during the height of the Worlds 2019 Championship hype, which featured Ahri, Evelynn, Akali and Kai’Sa as a K-Pop group complete with a mega popular music video.

The release of K/DA had a lasting impact on the League of Legends community with tons of fans showing their love for the characters with immaculate cosplays.

One such fan is cosplayer ‘BulmaBunnie’ who put together one of the most complete designs for the Nine-Tailed Fox in her K/DA outfit that looks ready for the stage.

BulmaBunnie spared no expense in making her full K/DA outfit as seen with the many intricate details she has from head to toe including Ahri’s fox ears with the left one being adorned by a heart-shaped earring.

Furthermore, the cosplayer looks to have studied Ahri’s outfit in the music video to the tee as seen with the perfect recreation of all the gold trimmings and patterns show throughout the K/DA member’s outfit.

But the real highlights in the cosplay which set it apart from many others are the majestic sparkling tails made with iridescent crinkle organza fabric that gives the the whole rendition a unique flare.

Even though the cosplayer admitted that her makeup in the shots was a rush job, fans of the outfit couldn’t tell since it all came together for to be one of the better K/DA designs to date.

K/DA cosplays span from intricate to hilarious

The K/DA fandom has swept millions of people of their feet, leading to increasingly impressive cosplays of the pop sensations.

While there have been numerous iterations of K/DA members throughout gaming, cosplayers have been making their mark with insane photoshoots showing off various members of the group.

LCS personalities haven’t been able to veer away from the fandom, and even world-famous League of Legends pro teams have had their time in the spotlight as K/DA members.

Riot Games know they have an immensely popular line of skins on their hands, and if they ever release follow-up additions to the collection hopefully that’ll mean more amazing designs like BulmaBunnie’s cosplay.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
