League of Legends is a game that recently steals all my free time and i totally love the Champions design. Riven is my favourite solo top, i loved the skin and decided to make this costume for IEM finals in Poland, Katowice.
Costume is mostly made out of EVA foam which i used for all the armor parts and some of the sword emelents. Armor is fixed to the costume with velcro and leather straps.
Next part was shield-armor-thing thich Riven has on her hand. I decided to make it our of resin gemsone lighted up with LED. In the end it worked great giving such a wonderfull glow but as well it was really hard piece to carry around on hand.
Sword is made out of architectual cardboard with foam and green plexi for the crystal parts. I also lighted up the sword with LEDs.
The whole armor is painted with acrylic spray and handpainted shadows for the metalic effect.
Overall i am very happy with the outcome of the costume and honored to win IEM Katowice cosplay contest. So much happiness here!
