League of Legends- Katarina by Vera-Chimera League of Legends- Katarina by Vera-Chimera

Photo and edits: beethy
Costume and props: me
Location: Melbourne CBD

Cosplaying this was a challenge- no thanks to the weather. It was sosososososo cold..... But I was still happy.
The costume came together great, and I had alot of fun wearing it. The armour was made from Worbla's Finest Art. Swords were made from a mix of Worbla, a wooden base, fimo air clay and craft foam. The spikes were ridiculously sharp... I don't know how I didn't get into trouble at PAX haha!
Ben sewed many photos together to get this shot, and he did a fantastic job.

Hope we did Katarina justice!

A fantastic picture by beethy and a superb cosplay. The richness of the skin tone and hair colour stand out well against the overall blue tint of the background and there's enough shine on your costume, especially combined with the armour (and swords thanks to the pose), to make it stand out against the stairs. The pose is simple but strong and the ratio works well against the scale of the background building.
The weaponry looks well constructed and detailed and reflects the chunkiness shown in much of the artwork I've seen. The armour also looks well made and detailed. Overall the costume seems accurate and as the model you make it look stunning. I'm guessing in reality the outfit would probably be leather, rather than PVC (if that's what you used) but the effect is much the same and my only real criticism is the lack of detailing (carving/tooling) on the bodice which appears in the artwork, although it possibly wouldn't have shown up in this picture anyway unless at a very high resolution. I don't know if the character always has the torso tattoo, but I think that would have added a dash of style to the image, elegant though your physique is. The scar over your eye seems rather small; it should be more visible in the hi-res of this image but only really looks like a design in the eye shadow. It's perhaps a shame in this particular image that one can't see that your hair is long, but that's hardly a criticism.
The picture as a whole makes for an excellent character portrait; you look very sexy and also dangerous, appearing relaxed and unflustered by the threat of whatever opponent you are facing. This picture would make a great screen wallpaper or wall print and shows superb work by both photographer and cosplayer.
What do you think?

Frikkin awesome costume although it's not exactly the most detailed one. Mind you, it's damn close to being it. You definitely look the part though! ;)
You're easily my favorite Katarina ^^
