Cloud9 League of Legends pro Zach ‘Sneaky’ Scuderi has whipped out some amazing cosplay costumes in the last year, and his latest work of art is no exception.

After Cloud9 finished the LCS 2019 Summer Split in second, Sneaky is keeping those Summer vibes going with a stunning League of Legends Pool Party Caitlyn cosplay. The AD carry player debuted the cosplay on August 27, simply captioned with ‘Pool Party Caitlyn’.

There are two photos with Sneaky’s Caitlyn cosplay, one with him laying down on the poolside, and another of him holding Caitlyn’s trusty sniper rifle and a drink.

As we’ve come to expect with his cosplays, Twitter went into an absolute meltdown with personalities from everywhere commenting on the get-up.

Journalist Tyler Erzberger commented saying “in worlds form already,” while Sneaky’s own team Cloud9 continued their tradition of calling him hot, tweeting “you’re actually so hot brother.”

Sneaky pulled out his last cosplay in July 2019 for his Patreon with Scathach from Fate/Grand Order. He’s also cosplayed Mashu from the popular mobile game, as well as Divine Sword Irelia, K/DA Kai’Sa, and Pool Party Ahri from League.

He works closely with his partner, Esther Lynn, on his cosplays, with Lynn often helping him out with photography when he’s in costume.

It’s not just Sneaky’s antics off the Rift that have been drawing people’s attention though. His performances on the Rift in 2019 have been outstanding, helping Cloud9 to two-top three finishes in the LCS and another shot at Worlds.

Caitlyn is also one of his most played champions, with a 72% win rate after 32 games in pro play.

His take on the Piltover police officer will be on the minds of many League fans, but that’s only until the legendary player creates his next masterpiece for us to all enjoy.

World of Warcraft has inspired a whole collection of amazing cosplays, but one cosplayer truly brings WoW into reality with her amazing Kyrestia cosplay. 

When it comes to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft universe, there are limitless possibilities to create amazing cosplays. The huge array of iconic characters, coupled with the impressive customization for your own hero or villain, makes the title perfect for passionate fans.

We recently saw cosplayer Cinderys create an amazing Sylvanas cosplay just in time for the release of Shadowlands, which in turn managed to score her Blizzard’s seal of approval.

This time around the subject of this amazing cosplay is Sylvanas’ polar opposite, Kyrestia the Firstborne, the ruler of Bastion.

Kyrestia has become one of The Ascended’s most iconic faces.

Cosplayer ascends as Kyrestia

2021 has brought with it a lot of insane cosplays, but this one is certainly one of the most memorable so far.

Artist PlexiCosplay (Plexi) has outdone herself with this beautiful transformation. Having painted herself aqua from head to toe, she can be seen adorned in Kyrestia’s iconic white and gold outfit whilst channeling the Ascended queen’s angelic nature.

What your eyes are immediately drawn to are the wings though. Mirroring the sky blue of her skin, their construction is perfect. Tipped with gold trims that tie in with her vestments and stunning recreation of the warrior’s crown, Plexi literally is Kyrestia.

WoW fans are stunned

Considering the wings are, according the Plexi, “15 feet long,” it’s safe to say that fans can’t miss this cosplay.

It’s the wings that have really gotten attention. One fan’s hilarious comment simply wrote: “the wind: I’m about to end this woman’s whole career,” to which Plexi responded “YOU NAILED IT.”

Another respondent was equally as humorous, writing “Kyrestia flight 77 you are cleared for takeoff, proceed to runway 4.”

All of these comments though praised this amazing cosplay, with one comment summing it up: “This blew my mind!!! I thought someone cropped the Archon out and pasted her onto some road!”

It’s safe to say that Plexi has truly embodied the fan favorite Ascended. She’s not only radiant, but emits a ‘don’t mess with me’ aura. We can’t wait to see her next WoW cosplay, as if she keeps going like she’ll be the queen of not just Bastion, but the WoW cosplay scene in no time!
