I am continually surprised by the number of different costumes I see from League of Legends. The game must feature dozens of characters. Anivia is one of them; the creature is a cryophoenix and a champion in the game. Given Anivia’s icy powers and abilities to create blizzards and walls of ice, it seems like the creature would be the perfect companion for Frozen’s Elsa.
Cosplayer RenePolumorfous made an Anivia cosplay for a League of Legends event in Greece last month because she loves playing the character. The fact that not many people cosplay as the cryophoenix was also appealing. Rene spent six hours working on the costume every day for six weeks. She used the simplest of materials to pull it together: cardboard, paper, and glue. She added color with acrylic paints. All the details and shading on the wings is lovely, and the finished costume proves you don’t need to spend a ton of money to make a costume look awesome.
