One of Riven’s skins in League of Legends is a Battle Bunny. Yep. Cosplayer Manda Cowled chose the character and skin to be the subject of her first League of Legends cosplay. She wants to make more of Riven’s skins at some point. She finished this one — Battle Bunny Riven — about a year ago. There’s the costume, the belt, the prop — she built all of it. She says:
The sword is made out of insulation foam, and this is the first time we experimented with painting the prop in rust paint once the shape was made. How we did this was to paint it, let it dry and then sand it down to make it super smooth. You can’t sand the foam before or you will just tear it, so this helped make the prop much more sturdy.
