Cosplay | Caitlyn, the Sheriff of Piltover

I’m really excited to share my newest costume, Caitlyn from League of Legends. I actually saw her official art last year, and it prompted me to start playing the game! I loved her outfit so much that I knew I wanted to create it at some point.

I wore this costume to Connecticon this past weekend, and Rich Carpenter snapped these photos on Saturday. And oh my gosh, I love them. I was going to wait until I had all my photos edited to post, but I was too excited not to share these.

Costume Details:

  • Dress: Jersey knit. Top trim is lace, bottom is two layers of white lining that I gathered and sewed to the hem.
  • Belts, Holster: Brown suede. Metal “gears” are craft foam that I spray painted silver and attached silver studs to.
  • Hat: Yikes! This was hard. It was a rolled cardstock tube, with the purple jersey pulled taut over the top to create the triangle shape. I used jersey-covered cardboard for the top and bottom. The stripes are gold spandex, and the wrap is the brown suede.
  • Hat Details: The ring and scopes are spray-painted model magic. The scopes are glued onto gold wire, and the top of the wire is stuck through the top of the hat.
  • Gun: The shape of the gun was cut from a large piece of pink XPS foam (found at Home Depot). It was paper mached, primed with gesso, and spray painted. The barrel is a dowel and wrapping paper tube stuck into the foam. Details were made of craft foam, model magic, and fabric studs.

If you have specific questions about how I made anything, let me know!

Have any of you played League of Legends? It’s such a fun game, and there are so many fun champions to choose from. This definitely isn’t my only League costume!

I love LOL!
And I love this outfit :)

This is just fantastic, the hat turned out amazing! I know LoL has amazing costumes but I haven’t played myself. I have a hard time with moderation so I know I’d get addicted! Haha :)

This is so awesome!! Wow! You look so bad ass!

Wow! this is amazing! look at all your detail in the costume and accessories, the hat and gun you did really wonderfully! you have to be a creative problem solver for some of the details! great job :)

Whoa! I love this!

This is fantastic! I love it!

P.S. Actually, my most recent idea was to cosplay my Wildstar character. Have you tried playing it?

You look AWESOME!! Such a great job on Caitlyn!! I’ve always thought she would be one of the more fun LoL characters to cosplay. I played LoL for a little while (no longer but I hear about it a lot as my boyfriend plays) and I’d love to cosplay a character for PAX in Seattle this Aug/Sept. I’ve never cosplayed before, so I’m not sure I’ll find the nerve for it… or the time! :)

I was thinking Reverse Anni or Arcade Sona would be really fun!

Incredible work! You look so great. As much as I would love to cosplay a League character, I find the game frustrating since I’ve never been a MMO fan..maybe someday I’ll get the hang of it. Can’t wait to see more photos of this cosplay too.

Exceptional work Kyla – so detailed. How many hours do you think you put into this?

Wow Kyla! I love this costume, you look gorgeous! I love the big hat :)
