All the accessories are made of Worbla and you can find the work in progress post on my DA journal.

Yasuo - League of Legends - Cosplay by Elffi
Yasuo - League of Legends - Cosplay
This is my Yasuo costume from League Of Legeds. Photo is taken in Chile during AFLA convention December 2014! The costume choice was brilliant because the weather was too hot for anything else.

I made the armor parts out of Worbla and EVA foam. Painting is done with acryclic paints + dark ink wash. Patterns on the scarf and pants are free hand painted with fabric colors. All the leather straps and leather parts are real leather. Wig is a human hair full lace wig glued on my scalp, :iconcalssara: helped me a lot with the final styling and ponytail! I cut and styled the front of the wig to follow my hairline (even though I don't have one, I'm bald, haha).

I had some last minute problems with the ponytail, it didn't stay up anymore, it's 50cm long and has to stay up all the time. Even though it's just hair and hairspray it's quite heavy... I was very worried... BUT then I saw a DREAM of a SPOON! xD So when I wake up on the con morning I stole a spoon from the breakfast table (I'm sorry!)! I bend the spoon 90 degrees and used it as a supporting structure inside the ponytail! And it worked like a dream, lol! 8)

Do you also have some "Last minute miracle fix" cosplay stories? Tell me! NOW! xD
Also, if you have any questions about the costume, please feel free to ask!

I hope to have a proper photoshoot with Yasuo this spring. Including the sword and a proper background!

Yasuo - League of Legends - Wig and makeup test by Elffi
Yasuo - League of Legends - Wig and makeup test
I'm using a human hair full lace wig this time. I cut the lace and hair line according to my own head shape and styled the sideburns and frontal hair. Now I'm starting to build a structure to make the ponytail.
I used wig glue and the bottle says that the wig will stay on my head for 3-4 weeks X"D Seems like I'll be having a long hair from now on! LOL!

I'm kinda tanned now so I had to buy a darker foundation and powder. I used my own beard and just paint it a bit darker with a brown mascara.

Gosh this wig kills me. The ponytail will be a pain in the ass! >~<

Cosplay by me

This body armor was a pain in the ass to do. The round shapes are really difficult to mold without using any seams!
Whole armor and sword is made out of Worbla by heating it with a heat gun. Paint is golden acrylic paint. All hand painted.

I'm one of the few and active international male cosplayers. I love to meet new people, make new friends and experience new cultures and conventions all over the world. I would love to travel even more and see how the conventions and cosplayers look in different countries. I can also speak Finnish, English and Japanese fluently, so don't be afraid of the language barrier!

You can book me for:

° Cosplay contest judging
° Panels (f.e. about Finnish/European/Japanese cosplay, international cosplay competitions, costume making/prop making/workshops.
° Performances on stage
° Advertisements (f.e. advertising your convention in a specific outfit, modeling costumes of your cosplay store, making a costume for your game promotion, youtube videos, interviews etc…)

You can contact me trough:


Our PRINTS are finally available and I would like to thank everyone supporting us so far!


Feel free to visit our store at:

All the money goes for me and Calssara Cosplay to meet each other. We live in different countries and it's really difficult and expensive for us to visit each other :"( This is our "travel together" - budget! Maybe we will visit your country together someday!

Also please let me know if you have some specific costume and photo you would like to demand to be sold as a print!  Write a comment below!

Thank you <3
