Lux (The Lady of Luminosity) has always been my favorite champion. She was worth 9600IP (most expensive) at the time I entered the League of Legends scene, so I worked hard to attain her. She was the first champ for whom I had a skin purchased. And I led ranked teams to victory, thanks to her! 😀
It merits no surprise then, that she’s one of the characters I’ve been dreaming of cosplaying. And it finally happened at this year’s Rampage!
It was my first time to spend an entire day with Tristan, who I hired to be my personal photographer and manager for that event. We were lucky to be able to secure tickets despite being walk-in guests! XD The following photos were grabbed from his facebook:
I was one of the first people to change into their costumes, and crowds flocked before me as soon as I stepped out of the dressing area. People had gotten my attention to take pictures with me in past conventions before, but not in this magnitude (fun fact: there was an estimated attendance of 14000 this year). It was REALLY hard to get from place to place (people would get my attention and/or block me after only a few steps), and with 4 hours of standing in tight heels, excruciating pain in ever step. :(( I wasn’t able to get my loot bag in the end, all I wanted to do was walk barefoot along Manila Bay (and I almost did XD).
Fortunately, meeting with Nina spiced up my day. 😀 I taught her how to play League a year ago, and now she’s gotten to love a well-hated character, haha.
She was threatened that I brought a new guy, but I assured her that he’s not my boyfriend, duh (I found out that guys were looking for me and asking the same thing in the forums after the event, haha…)
I honestly don’t know if I would want to go to the next LoL conventions (probably if Nina insists) and re-experience the same inconveniences, but it won’t stop me from cosplaying a few more of my beloved lady champs. 😀
