Cloud9’s League of Legends roster in gender-bending cosplay may not be what the community asked for, but it’s exactly what we need.
Zachary “Sneaky” Scuderi, Eric “Licorice” Ritchie, Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen, and Tristan “Zeyzal” Stidam all posed for some K/DA-themed photos, after Sneaky’s cosplaying girlfriend styled their hair, makeup, and outfits.
Yasin “Nisqy” Dincer wasn’t present for the photoshoot. It was rumored that his strict parents wouldn’t approve of it. But he did say that cosplay is “fun,” and that means “it can’t be bad, right?”
The rest of the roster seemed apprehensive at first, but they soon appeared to have a lot of fun on set. Zeyzal portrayed K/DA Kai’Sa, Svenskeren was Ahri, Sneaky was Akali, and Licorice played the role of Evelynn.
The YouTube video has over 100,000 views, and 2.7K likes. It would appear that Cloud9 fans agree: Cosplaying can’t be that bad. But Cloud9’s followers are quite used to this kind of cosplay, since Sneaky has been showing off sexy and revealing cosplays on Twitter and Patreon for quite some time.
His first-ever cosplay was inspired by fans. Viewers kept asking him to wear a schoolgirl outfit on stream. At first, Sneaky was nervous about what people would think. But his fans ended up loving it.
Sneaky admitted in the video that he was nervous to post the photos.
“I guess my team’s reaction was pretty supportive,” Sneaky said.
Now his team mostly laughs at his antics. They’ll jokingly ask Sneaky who the hottie on their Twitter feed is. And Cloud9’s official account will will join in replying to his photos with the now popular phrase, “You’re so hot, brother.”
Svenkersen said Sneaky’s Swimsuit Ahri cospay is his personal favorite.
