Debuted: Anime Expo 2016
Loiza designed the most gorgeous popstar skins for a majority of League of Legends champions. I tried to gather a group of popstar League of Legends cosplayers for Anime Expo. In the end, it didn't happen but that wasn't going to stop be from cosplaying this!
For the bodysuit and jacket I took patterns I found at Joann's and altered them. I believe the bodysuit was made from a bathingsuit pattern where I had to alter the center/front and remove the straps and add the cups. The jacket was made from a pretty standard jacket pattern but I shortened the sleeves and cropped it.
The pattern for the hat was entirely free-handed. In order to keep it's shape I lined it with foam and used cardboard for the bill. All that was left was to glue on the heart decal I made from eva foam and attach bobby pins.
The ears, armor, and vines were all made from eva foam. All the patterns were made from scratch by me. Due to very few reference photos and angles exsisting out there, it was actually really trick to figure out.
The vines were fairly time consuming to make. I had to cut long strips of thick eva foam and then dremel them into a rounded shape. I used a heat gun to help the spiral movement they have and make sure it stuck.
What was made?
Bodysuit. Jacket. Arm armor. Shoulder armor. Hats. Ears & vines. Shoes-altered.
