Cosplayer Kitsune Raposa took to Reddit to share a side by side of her cosplay of the League of Legends character Lux with her Star Guardian skin and a shot of the character. I’m always into seeing these kind of comparisons. Kitsune’s build is pretty spot on, including how she used LEDs to make the star portion of the wand glow. She made the prop from fiberglass. She says:
I used fiberglass! It’s really rough and don’t break easily. Also the wand is divided in two. For the star we make with resin, to be transparent. It has leds on both sides ^ The cable is made from pvc pipe!
