The Many Faces of Cosplay: Becoming Katarina from League of Legends!

League of Legends is not only one of the most popular games in the world right now, but it is also without a doubt the most popularly cosplayed franchise in history.  With over 100 champions to choose from, it is assured that you will find a champion that you’ll fall absolutely in love with for their play style, personality, and overall appearance.  One of the most popular female champions in League is Katarina, The Sinister Blade.

Katarina is an absolute force to be reckoned with when playing League.  With her Bouncing Blade ability, she is able to fling her dagger and strike multiple enemies at once.  Combine that with a Shunpo attack to leap onto the enemy and damage them, then use Sinister Steel to swirl around and slash your enemy with your daggers and you are sure to inflict tons of damage.  If that isn’t enough, finish them off with Katarina’s ultimate, and quite overpowered, move: Death Lotus, which causes Katarina to spin around and fling her blades at a crazy intense speed at any rivals within distance.  Katarina is quick, agile, and definitely knows how to pick up a ton of kills.

Thanks to the variety of skins that League of Legends provides to fans, there are many different variations of Katarina that a cosplayer can choose to create.  Whichever you choose, they are all sure to be epic (and sexy to boot)!
