Debuted: Anime Expo 2014
Jinx was one of the champions Riots announced for League of Legends that I was most excited for. At this point, making cosplays took me a long time so I began working on her before she was officially released in the game. I absolutely adored her character. She reminded me of Harley Quinn but was a character in my favorite game at the time? Of course I was going to cosplay her right away!
This was one of the first cosplays I made. It was my first time working with eva foam. Not knowing where to buy it at the time, I ordered these small puzzle pieces of it online. I then had to glue it all together and make it circular. I had no idea it could morph with heat at the time so lucky for me making it into a tunnel was easy. I also had no idea how to seal it, so I wrapped it in paper mache. For the other pieces of the rocket launcher I used expanding foam.
I actually have blog posts on how I made both the rocket launcher and machine gun. But I'll do a quick recap on the machine gun as well. I used an ice cream bucket (empty) and a floral foam dome to create the back end of it. The pipes were made from PVC pipes and held into place using expanding foam.
The belts on her outfit (with the bullets) I already owned. I saw them on sale at Hot Topic a few months before starting this and picked them up. I made the bikini top and the side piece at her hips, then altered a pair of shorts. For both the shorts and top I used tape to outlne the stripes and then painted them on with fabric paint. I used a belt to create the band around her neck. I hand cut a belt to the length needed and while one end had the buckles, the other end didn't, so I took the buckle off another belt and attached it to that end. I took thinner belts and cut them down to size to create the belts around her glove.
For her gloves I ordered a pink arm warmer online and the "work out" gloves. I then made the upper piece of the one glove with left over black fabric. I used the same black fabric for the bands around her leg. For the one stocking I simply placed pink fishnets on top of purple stockings. The bandaids on her other knee I hadto paint blue because no store near me sold blue bandaids.
