Cosplayer JinxKittie got ambitious when she built her League of Legends DJ Sona costume. She didn’t just put together the bodysuit, helmet, and visor, she made Sona’s entire mixing board complete with LEDs and music. Besides the complication of the build, I can’t imagine how challenging it had to be to transport the board to the convention. It’s only her third ever cosplay, so it was extra bold of her to go so big.
She made the board from black foam, acrylic, LEDs, and what appears to be air dry clay. The finished board weighed approximately eight pounds, and JinxKittie put it on wheels so she could easily maneuver around the convention floor. You can get a closer look and see how the lights function in this video:
