Our first cosplay spotlight comes from Katsucon 2013 with a beautiful Ashe costume, created by JinX. Costume construction took about 30 days, from 1/14/2013 to 2/14/2013. We met JinX on the Katuscon floor on the day of the League of Legends costume event and pulled her aside for a private shoot. The gorgeous exterior and intricate interior of the Gaylord in National Harbor, MD made for some fabulous photo opportunities.

The details of her costume leave little to be desired, though the highlight of her ensemble is undoubtly her hand-crafted bow, created with glorious detail. It’s made from a wood base, covered in styrofoam, and then painted to match Ashe decor. The highlight of the weapon itself is perhaps the pulley system making it able to fire the arrow projectile a short distance. You can see the progress photos of the bow’s construction in this photo album on JinX’s fan page.

All photographs from our shoot were taken by Elisha Capie and Andrew Campbell.
