We’ve seen instances of fan art inspiring cosplayers before, and I have another example with Daraya Cosplay’s take on Ice Ahri from League of Legends. She based her costume design on art by SoYu. Daraya’s been making costumes for at least a couple of years, and she built this elaborate ensemble with armor, fur, and gems from the ground up. She used foam for the armor. The gems? They’re made from clear cabachons and various shades of blue nail polish (you can see the evolution in the gallery below). The method allowed her to make the gems inexpensively and easily.
