This cosplay was actually made for the Garena Cosplay contest Comic Fiesta 2014.
I've always really liked Irelia's artwork and her lore (I have a soft spot for strong female characters).
Although figure wise im probably not the best person to cosplay Irelia, but I decided to go with it. I've decided to always put the charas I love first
so yea. Altho I spent around a month's time on this costume. It still took me quite a while because I was literally almost on my costume most time in a day. I thought it would take me faster but I was wrong ;w; time to polish up. Its also my first time working with EL lights and worbla, so it was quite an interesting experience
but learnt alot and it was alot of fun.! hehehe.! The weapon though was a pain. it was super heavy! i think 8-10 kg ;w; The acrylic sheet was too thick. I failed to take that into consideration. D: So a major big thank you to my saikang who carried it for me. A COSPLAYER IS NOTHING WITHOUT A SAIKANG D:<
I didnt win the contest, but landed 4th place. and got alot of supporting pms and wall posts on my fb <3 i am very touched. Thank you to all of you. the contestants were all amazeballs tho! THEM COSTUMES *A*
