League of Legends devs will be adding to the incredibly popular PROJECT skin line soon as fans already have an idea of which champs will get a new design, according to previous leaks.

Riot Games constantly reinvent their champions by periodically releasing new skins for them, tweaking their designs and giving the character a place in rich alternate storylines.

Throughout the years, the League of Legends devs have put together some wildly popular skins like the K/DA line, Battle Academia and more, but none conjures more sci-fi allure than the PROJECT collection.

Riot GamesThe PROJECT skin line in League of Legends has produced a ton of fan-favorite designs for champions like Jhin.

In a June 13 tweet, Riot Games released a small video teasing the next champions that are going to be getting the PROJECT treatment soon.

Accompanying the short clip was the tagline “We can’t control the monsters we create…” with the PROJECT logo fixed on a big metal door.

At the end of teaser, one of the new champions sliced a small opening across the doorway, signaling that something is about to break loose.

Gunfire and what looks to be an energy projectile can be seen similarly attacking the door’s frame, as it looks like a trio of characters are about to emerge from their confinement and onto the Rift.

So far there are a ton of champions with a skin tied into the PROJECT storyline such as Yasuo, Zed, Fiora, Vayne, Jhin and more.

While there have been countless fan-reimaginings for various champions in the style of the PROJECT collection, Summoners will soon find out which characters are getting a futuristic theme.

Streamer ‘ElmilloR’ accidentally showed a snippet from a Discord conversation with people in the League of Legends Partner Program that revealed Pyke and Jinx will soon get PROJECT skins.

The leak would correspond with the images seen in the teaser clip as it shows the attacks of a machine gun type weapon (Jinx) and the slash damage of a ranged attack (Pyke).

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
