How to Build Vi’s Weapon Hands from League of Legends

League of Legends Vi hands

League of Legends has several champions, and Vi is one of them. She has gigantic weaponized hands to help her through battles, and when cosplayers decide to dress like her, they have to figure out how to make lightweight versions of the hands. Chrix Designs divided them into the knuckles, back, fingers, and core and built those four parts separately. The core has a base of foam mat and cardboard with a cardboard cylinder for armholes. The knuckles are made from styrofoam and cardboard and white disposable dishes she got at a cafeteria.]

The fingers were crafted from cardboard and foam mat, and she rigged animation of the fingers by using fishing line; this is what the movement looks like:

The backs of the hands are made from a cardboard base covered with foam mat pieces that were covered with filler and painted. The “glass” on the gauge? It’s a circle cut from the lid of a takeout sushi box.
