Production of a Cosplay

miiru-cosplay invests a lot of time in the production of a cosplay, as the example of Rengar from League of Legends shows. "It took me 60-70 hours to be satisfied with all parts of the cosplay," says Myriam. Especially the production of weapons, horns and Co. is very complex. Besides the production it also takes a lot of time to analyze all parts, so the artworks from the games have to be studied in detail.

Work that is more worthwhile, as we find!
