COSTUME DETAILS:
Hood: The hood pattern was drafted by me and is made out of suede. I did have a simplicity cloak pattern, but got so frustrated with it that I scrapped it and made my own! I used about 4 yards of muslin making mock-ups. I edged it in purple satin and used puff paint for the design.

Staff: I loosely followed Courtney’s Lux staff tutorial. Great resource if you’re looking to build the staff. However, I only used worbla for the ends and twisted them more than the tutorial, and the effect personally was more like the splash art.

Belts: All belts were made from upholstery leather I got at Jo-Anns, and I bought the buckles on etsy.

Potion bottles: I used these sand art bottles, and filled them with gel beads.

The shirt was bought at target, and I poked holes in plain corduroy pants and laced them up the sides with leather cords.

I wore her to Granite State Comic Con, and hope to re-wear at a future convention as it’s a pretty comfortable costume and easy to wear. This particular character is my favorite to play in the game, and this skin is my favorite to use while playing her. If you play League, have you played her before?

Be sure to follow along on my Facebook page for more of my cosplay progress shots.

    I’m yet to play League of Legends. It’s killing me that everyone has been talking about it and I didn’t play it yet! Ugh!
    On another note: that pattern on the hood is a killer! Great job!

    Gorgeous! This is so spot on and I love the colors you used. What brand / type of wig did you wear for this? It looks like an Arda Ferrari.

    What did you do for the armbands? It looks like it’s just fabric. Also did you buy the side pouch somewhere? How did you attach the book to the belt? Was it glued or tied? The whole cosplay looks beautiful. I’m working on my own spellthief lux cosplay and have been perusing the internet for ideas. I hope you can respond since i realize this post is more than 2 years old. Thanks!

      Hi there! I hope you can actually see my response :) The armbands are craft foam, I glued a smaller strip to a larger strip and painted them.

      The side pouch was definitely bought, though I can’t remember where…I did remove the shoulder strap as the attaching rings are still on the sides of the pouch. To attach it to the belt I glued a piece of fabric to the back with two slits on it…so the belt essentially “wove” through the backing on the purse, holding it in place when I secured the belt. I hope that makes sense…feel free to reach out if you have any other questions! :) I’d love to see your costume when it’s complete!!
