League of Legends is one of the most popular games in the world and features over 145 unique playable characters to try out.

Xayah and Rakan’s Star Guardian skins make for the perfect cosplay.

Xayah is one of the most popular champions to cosplay in League of Legends as her unusual, feathery look often poses as a fun challenge for cosplayers.

Despite the fact that many have tried to recreate the bird-like marksman in the past, such as pro players Sneaky and Bang, cosplayer Panquack did not shy away from going all out in her latest cosplay.

The Australian cosplayer took on the challenge of bringing Xayah’s latest Star Guardian skin to life and stunned fans with the results.

Panquack replicated the Star Guardian to near perfection for Madman’s 2020 Anime festival, with an intricate full-body costume, makeup, and the hairstyle to match.

After sharing the cosplay online, many praised the cosplayer for her attention to detail and the outfit also received a lot of support on the League of Legends subreddit.

Panquack revealed on her Instagram that she had also previously cosplayed in the costume alongside her husband, who matched her efforts with the Star Guardian version of Rakan, completing the classic ‘Lover’s Duo’ look.

Although League of Legends has been around for over 10 years, creative fans such as Panquack are still coming up with new ways to bring their favorite characters to life and impress fans of the popular title.

A Disney cosplayer went viral on Instagram after enchanting viewers with her jaw-dropping take on beloved princess, Cinderella. 

One of the most iconic animated films of all time, Cinderella is still as influential as it was when it made its debut in 1950. The Disney adaptation brought a magical take on a classic fairytale and is often considered the best version of the story.

Prolific cosplayer ‘Anastasia Lion’ celebrated the beloved movie by bringing its princess protagonist to life with her insanely accurate costume. Her stunning re-creation of the heroine will be sure to leave fans in awe.

The fairy tale centers on Cinderella, who is mistreated by her wicked stepmother. Her fate changes, however, when her fairy godmother transforms her into a princess so that she can attend the Royal Ball.

Cosplayer Anastasia Lion made waves on social media when she shared her true-to-life take on the Disney heroine. The Russian-based artist faithfully re-created the character’s look from the beginning of the movie when she is a servant for her step-family.

Photographer ‘ph_mosienko’ brilliantly captured the moment, with their work bringing the animation’s visual style to life. Anastasia looks so much like the Disney princess, it’s almost as if she’s walked out of the screen.

In another stunning shot by Elizaveta, the cosplayer showed off her depiction of Cinderella’s flowing blue dress which she wears to the Royal Ball. The gorgeous stone pillars and flowing flowers in the background bring the whole piece together, as it truly looks like the princess is fleeing the event before midnight. 

Despite releasing over 70 years ago, Walt Disney’s enchanting take on the classic folk tale has become iconic in pop culture. Viewers around the world still love the film, and it’s popular in the cosplay community.

Those who have managed to never see the 1950 movie can watch its HD remaster on streaming services Disney+ and Amazon Prime. It is also available to purchase on all digital platforms.
