It’s been a while since I’ve done a proper cosplay post. I mostly save all my cosplay stuff for my Geek and Sundry vlog show but some of my viewers prefer written, photographic progress posts because they’re easier to follow than videos.
Also apologies for the image quality, as most progress photos were taken with my iPhone.
I recently cosplayed Syndra from League of Legends. After cosplaying Bloodmoon Akali from League (which turned out horribly because I didn’t have any materials or space to work on it, student halls etc.), I really wanted to make something big. I’ve been out of the North American cosplay scene for almost a year, so I wanted to come back with a bang! Syndra seemed like the perfect outfit – complex yet simple, cool design, and eye- catching. Plus she’s really fun to play 😀
This was how my cosplay turned out for Anime Expo. Not completely finished, but pretty good for working nonstop for 8 days!
I saw this amazing Syndra at MCM Expo in London! I had thought about cosplaying Syndra, but this cosplayer’s interpretation was absolutely perfect and really inspired me. The entire set of armor was commissioned from Ae Ri who is a fantastic cosplayer. Go check out her stuff – she’s a god at making armor from EVA foam!
So without further ado, let’s go!
These posts are part of a series. Check out the other posts here!
Armor – Materials
This is what it looks like on the other side, and then curled inwards. I heated the back and placed the worbla over my arm and held it there until it cooled. The worbla held its shape and didn’t bend.
