I continue to be awed by the variety of characters in League of Legends and the variety of costumes they wear. Armor, mech-like fists, leather – they’re all so different. I also appreciate that many of the costumes present challenges to cosplayers because they’re made from multiple materials and components. Take Nidalee for example. The huntress wears a leather/suede outfit with fur highlights. She also wears giant teeth or claws around her waist and neck and wields a spear taller than she is. You need to use a lot of techniques to replicate the outfit, and cosplayer Diana, a.k.a. Dids Rainfall, successfully pulled it off.
She spent three weeks working on her Nidalee costume and had to stay up late the night before the photo shoot to finish the spear. It looks like she made the base of the claws with expanding foam and then painted them to look like bones.
More photos of this costume and many more at Facebook.
