When it comes to cosplay, Koreans certainly don’t mess around…

This year, I was able to go to South Korea for the League of Legends World Championship Grand Final. As part of the festivities surrounding the event, there was, of course, a cosplay contest. I’ve managed to selected my favorites, but it was somewhat hard to choose, as when South Koreans show up to cosplay, they really show up.

Lets start off with this cute couple shot of Ezreal and Ahri:

image

Another Ahri, this time in her Popstar skin with her Popstar cohorts, Caitlyn and Lux.

image

I don’t know who is more adorable: this regular Annie…

image

… or Reverse Annie!

image

Anyone who didn’t think this gallery would have at least one Bunny-Girl Riven is pretty naive…

image

Rengar and Jax are ready to gank you at top…

image

And Graves is holding down the fort at bottom.

image

In fact, these guys actually had a full 5-person team put together.

image

Next up we have the queen of spiders, Elise.

image

And the king of vampires, Vlad.

image

I had to double-check to make sure this LeBlanc wasn’t a duplicate.

image

This Shyvana unfortunately couldn’t transform into a Dragon.

image

No, that’s not a statue. That’s a guy dressed up as the mother-flipping turret. He couldn’t move too well, and had to have his handlers “shuffle” him around. I admire his dedication.

image

Syndra and Jinx ready to throw down.

image

One of many Morganas.

image

Another Morgana. I’m a bit disappointed that there weren’t any of the best Morgana skin: Sinful Succulence Morgana.

image

This Morderkaiser was pretty damn metal.

image

But he had nothing on this Aziz, who was absolutely massive!

image

Shen and Zed, ninja bros.

image

Rebel Caitlyn.

image

This Vi was seriously, super impressive (the Zyra also isn’t too bad).

image

Sona chilling out. I said “hi” but she didn’t respond…

image

Another Jinx, this time in her Mafia skin.

image

League of Draven.

image

This Kayle had some seriously impressive armor.

image

Akali, in her “Crimson Akali” skin.

I hope this Pulsefire Ezereal’s costume wasn’t as expensive as the skin…

image

The “Miss Fortune Team” won best group cosplay.

image

Even the presenter for the cosplay awards ceremony was dressed as Nidalee.

image

Ashe, keeping it cool.

image

And last but not least, pool party Lee Sin lapping it up for the camera.
