Katarina, take one by Taidine Katarina, take one by Taidine
Aha. More cosplay + photo processing. This was a much more successful casting job. Let's see, what might be interesting to people...

I did not make the shirt or pants. The jacket was heavily altered from a thrift store find. The daggers are various combinations of cardboard, hot glue, and papier mache sprayed with chrome paint. The swords are foam core, sprayed chrome, some fake leather for the hilts. I sprayed my hair pink. It rubbed off on /everything/.

Photograph by :iconxiakha:, so the image quality is pretty darn good.

More epic LoL cosplay (the rest of the group, say) can be found in :iconysterath:'s gallery.

League of Legends by Riot Games. It's fun, and also free. [link]

I might redo this to make the background darker at some point, but not now.

Yay! Thanks!

(It was a lot of fun, and mostly not much work - except for swords. Swords and daggers. SO MANY DAGGERS. All the daggers. ^_^ )

Why yes, it is my real hair. I used a temporary pink spray-in dye. It was messy >.<

I had a friend cosplay Emumu... I don't think she could move in the finished product, though XD .

jff (just for fun) :) I'm thinking about one cosplay that girl has green hair, so I'm doing reconnaissance that how many cosplayers are using wig by their cosplays :)

Rly? She didn't finish it or something? (Lol my friend asked about Emumu, 'cuz I've got fringe like emo :D)

I've used wigs in other cosplays; I generally use wigs for short-haired characters and my own hair for long-haired characters, since long wigs tangle excessively and are quite expensive. On the other hand, non-permanent hair dye rarely looks good, or at least authentic. Since Kat is kind of cartoony anyway, I went with spray, but it never looks quite as professional, and it rubs off on /everything/.

Basically, pick your inconvenience.

Haha! Cosplaying one of my favorite League girls, very lovely. Maybe somehow manage to make D3 Kunais for her belts, or maybe buy some cheap plastic ones online somehow, will add to it even more, but really a great start.

Keep at it. Kat love. <3

Ah, yes, I was missing three swords. I figured since Kat never actually uses them they were not top priority... I should probably also have put down my bag >.>

Haha! Nothings perfect. Cosplay is all about your interpretation of the character. :P It's all up to you. I still think it was a pretty darn good cosplay.

That would explain why it wasn't much larger than the pics from my lousy camera... Sure, I'll bug Sean.
