Veteran cosplayer Yaya Han partnered with Riot Games to bring League of Legends’ champion Vayne to life in the Season 11 promotional campaign.
Riot Games released an updated version of Vayne’s design, with an elegant modernized touch. The Nighthunter is about to complete ten years in-game, and as new champions are added to the game with updated visuals, older characters need a little facelift to remain up to date.
Yaya was responsible for fabricating the champion’s entire costume, including the bodysuit, harnesses, high collared cape, ponytail wig, and crossbow. Materials from her own fabric and cosplay supplies line, including EVA foam sheets, faux leather, and pearlescent spandex for the bodysuit were used to bring the character from the Summoners Rift to real life.
In her YouTube channel, Han explains how the costume was made, with detailed shots of the sewing and prop making process, completed with a full photoshoot video at the end.
