League of Legends cosplayer Sofia ‘Paperwings’ conjured up a magical take on the fearsome mage Syndra, leaving fans in awe after sharing her incredible attempt at her Star Guardian outfit.

Riot’s popular MOBA, League of Legends, now has 150 unique champions in the game, following the addition of Yone in patch 10.16.

This leaves plenty of choice for creative fans of the title, such as Paperwings, who like to recreate some of their favorite characters through cosplay and art.

While Syndra is one of the most popular picks in-game, it is not often that the Ionian mage is cosplayed, with fan-favorite characters such as Ahri or Miss Fortune usually standing out first.


However, cosplayer Paperwings reminded League of Legends fans just how impressive The Dark Sovereign can be, sharing her take on the champion’s Star Guardian skin on her Instagram.

She was praised for her impressive attention to detail, flawlessly recreating the character’s outfit, even adding her matching headpiece as seen in-game.

However, what caught the attention of many League of Legends was the Dark Sphere in her hand, meaning that she was primed and ready to unleash power on any who cross her.

She went the extra mile with Syndra’s Star Guardian style, completing the look with a purple wig, lipstick, and even eye contacts.

I'm starting to feel a lot better than last week already, so I decided to take Cowgirl Miss Fortune selfies today (sadly the best picture shows my bruise but I don't care) because I can't wait to start working on my Captain Miss Fortune Cosplay soon! In case you want to help me out with that, feel free to support me by visiting my Ko-fi site (link in my bio). I'd really, really appreciate that, because I love Miss Fortune so much. ❤️ .

While the popular cosplayer admitted that she was self-conscious with her latest costume at first, she received an overwhelmingly positive response from fans, particularly amongst Syndra mains.
