The Judgment skin is one of many choices available for Kayle in League of Legends. The outfit is a nod to Judge Dredd, and you can see a visual connection in the shoulder plates. Cosplayer Locobu played Kayle in the video game and started planning the cosplay as soon as she saw the Judgment look. She says:
This was my first time making armor and wings! I had my good friend Phoebe make me the sword so I could concentration on making the wings and other pieces. Making the wings was quite a bit of planning, but much easier than I thought they would be! I made them using a combination of wonderflex, craft foam, wire, and a whole lotta glue. Yes, all the feathers were cut out by me! There are over 150! After all the pieces were complete, I did not fully try it on until I was at Anime North. When I looked in the mirror…I smiled and said very excitedly to my friends “OH MY GOD! EVERYTHING IS STAYING ON!!” Hehehe I had a fear that using velcro to stick my armor pieces on would be an issue!
In general, I am so happy with the outcome of this cosplay. It really made me happy that I had so many people come and ask for my photos. I felt so good and confident that I will be able to make some more great cosplays in the future!
