League of Legends cosplayer hunts souls as Spirit Blossom Kindred

League of Legends’ Spirit Blossom skins continue to be among the LoL community’s absolute favorites. and this cosplayer brought Spirit Blossom Kindred to life with an outfit that will have you picking your jaw off the floor.

League of Legends may have been around for a while, but some of the legendary MOBA’s in-game events were simply structured differently.

With the PROJECT series centered around a futuristic Terminator-like conflict, and High Noon bringing some Wild West to the Rift, Spirit Blossom remains one of the game’s most popular events to this day. Inspired by Asian folklore and conceived as a visual novel, the 2020 event allowed players to interact up close and personal with some of LoL’s most iconic faces.

While Thresh, Yasuo and Yone stole the spotlight with their stunning good looks, death itself, Kindred and the cosplay queen lurked in the shadows HoneyRabbit (Brooklyn) decided to show them some much-needed love.

Despite their playful nature, Kindred help transport lost souls to the afterlife.

LoL Spirit Blossom Kindred Cosplay enchants fans

For Brooklyn, a Kindred cosplay was a no-brainer given how passionate she is about the mystery character. “I was a main Ahri player for a while, but eventually I learned how to play jungle and the only champion I was attracted to was Kindred,” she told Dexerto. “I love their story, design and playstyle. I just played Kindred for about two years; and now I’m playing Kindred in places Kindred should never be.

“Imagine summer 2020 and I see a leaked image of a Japanese-inspired Kindred skin. I just lost my mind. Eventually Spirit Blossom Kindred was released and I knew right away that I had to cosplay it. This design was everything I wanted and more. But being me, I didn’t just want to do the outfit, I had to give my all and do something ridiculous. About a year later and my Spirit Blossom Kindred, 8 foot wolf and all, was done!”

Yes, you read that right, wolf is actually 8 feet tall. “I knew I wanted it to be to scale, but like the outfit, there were so many clues as to how big it needed to be. I ended up going for something slightly larger than the visual novel sprite but smaller than the splash art size.

“To be honest, I had no idea how to do it. I originally wanted it on a harness that attached directly to me, but I quickly realized that wasn’t going to work out well. Between the heels, the outfit, the wig, and the bow, I wouldn’t be able to deal with a giant wolf hovering over me either. Thus the rolling skeleton was born. It took… so many tries to get it just right.”

It’s Wolf that really catches the eye in this cosplay (he’s quite tall after all), but every little detail is absolutely perfect. Lavender hair falls to her shoulders, curled horns protrude from the sides of her head. Featuring the now iconic fur-lined kimono and Lamb’s stunning teal bow, Brooklyn is Soul Blossom Relatives.

“I started with the hooves, which were surprisingly easier than expected. I took a pair of pantyhose, heelless heels and EVA foam; and put it all together to make some hooves! Next, I pulled on the pants and shirt. The pants were a bit easier as I had a solid idea of ​​the shape I needed to achieve. I used a pattern from TrinesTreasury on Etsy – kudos to them!

“The hardest part was figuring out how to put the pants on with the shoes. You see, when you make a costume, you have to think about it everything; how will you walk, in what order will you put it on, how will you transport it, where will it be most fragile etc. I ran into a problem where the shoes were the first thing I had to put on so had to pants are designed so that I can wear them over the big hooves. Thanks to the inventor of the rubber band, you saved me!”

The arch is also five feet (1.5 m) and one inch taller than Brooklyn itself! “I asked the incredibly talented Dangerous Ladies for their expertise. I commissioned them to 3D model and print the arch for me and they did a fantastic job! Your communication, speed and quality is second to none. They’ve also thought of everything like how to assemble all the pieces so they stay tight together and how I can make the 5ft bow more travel friendly (yes 5ft, that’s how long it is…which is an inch taller than me). I joked that it assembled almost like IKEA furniture, with little wooden bars to hold the pieces together more firmly together with epoxy glue.”

While they “tHis was by far the hardest and probably still will be the hardest cosplay I’ve ever done,” it didn’t break her.

I’ve always made costumes far more ridiculous than they need to be because I love the complexity of fictional costumes. That’s part of the fun of cosplay, you dress up as something you could never wear on a normal day. So why not go all out? Obviously it’s so much easier said than done, but it’s exciting and fun to do something this sophisticated. Especially when it comes to a hobby and craft that you have been doing for a long time, it is very fulfilling to see how far you have come.”

But would she make another Kindred skin – or even a LoL cosplay? “YES!” She replies. “If another Kindred skin comes along that I love, I’ll make it! I’d love to do Vex, Star Guardian Neeko, or maybe a Lillia skin; but we’ll see.”

Brooklyn’s Kindred absolutely stunned this author at first sight and no doubt took the breath away of fans of Runeterra. As she continues to create extravagant outfits that push boundaries and take names, we can’t wait to see what she does next. Until then, however, we will be lifting our jaws off the ground.
