CosHack 2014

It’s around 2 pm at the expo area as a roaring crowd shakes up the Riot booth. The reason? The League of Legends cosplay showcase is just moments from beginning! Visitors have been highly anticipating this moment, a taste of what might come the following day in the cosplay championships, but exclusively League of Legends champions, such as Caitlyn and Lulu.

After the showcase, we met up with a few of the cosplayers to see what they had on their minds:

The two friends Kathrin and Yasmine are attending their first DreamHack after one of their friends told them about the event. Coming from Denmark, they tell us that they haven’t experienced anything close to it and that the venue so far has been quite amazing both in size and shear amount of things to do, watch and experience.

Kathrin is known for her cosplay under the nickname ”Kitty” and is turning into a bit of a cosplayer veteran as she now is adding DreamHack as her fifth event during her three year cosplaying career. When asked what she loves about cosplay so much, she replies that she loves the entire process – choosing a champion, crafting all the armour, weapons, mimicking the entire look and finally showing the final result to others. Although cosplay being a big part, it is not the only reason for her to come to DreamHack – gaming is a passion of hers, playing both League of Legends and Borderlands 2 quite a bit.

Yasmine ”Gigi” Tokman stands next to her as a crowd has formed around them, everyone eager to get a picture next to the two beautiful League of Legends champions. She is here as her first ever cosplay event, but confidently poses with her Dragon Trainer Lulu costume. She is also here for the entire experience, not just the cosplay, and just like her friend, she is into gaming with StarCraft being the Esport of choice. ”Gigi” tells us that her enjoyment in cosplaying lies mostly in the process of crafting, not as much in showing it off.

Although there being a big cosplay championship at the venue, neither of them are to participate, or as ”Kitty” put it: ”At least not this time”, with a hint of the possibility of future competition.
