A Fiddlesticks Cosplay That’s Wickedly Beautiful

Fiddlesticks is a playable character in League of Legends, known as the Harbinger of Doom. He’s normally played as a Jungler and as an Ability power-based Champion. He’s been played several times in the League Championship Series. His joke, “I haven’t got a brain…and soon neither will you,” harkens to the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz and his dance strongly references Oz’s Scarecrow as well.

Several years ago, Fiddlesticks lore was ret-conned and then given more depth. The new-ish lore states that for nearly twenty years, Fiddlesticks has stood alone in silent vigil in the easternmost summoning chamber of the Institute of War. Only the burning emerald light of his gaze pierces the musty darkness. His is a cautionary tale of power run amok, taught to all summoners within the League. The lore goes on to tell of a mage who stepped outside the rules of conduct until his reach exceeded his grasp. He then shut himself into the easternmost summoning chamber and ceased moving, except to slay an apprentice who dared to enter. Others who trespassed, but survived, were driven mad with fear. Seeing no recourse to reclaim the chamber, the Council opted to use Fiddlesticks as an executioner. He comes to life and seems to abide by the rules of summoning in the Fields of Justice, but what he awaits in his chamber is unknown.

Fiddlesticks is a creepy character who is quite far from pretty and beautifying this cosplay takes strong imagination. Cosplayer Danielle Beaulieu did an absolutely incredible job with her genderbent version of Fiddlesticks. The costuming is rough and ragged in parts, sleek and sexy in others. Turning Fiddlesticks unearthly, scarecrow-esque head into a hood is genius, and details like the extra-long fingers, the key, and straw across the shoulders draw from LoL canon and help to further define the cosplay. And that scythe (as its called in the LoL lore, but it is technically a sickle) is just an incredible masterwork of prop-making. Danielle has done a perfect job of making Fiddlesticks aesthetically appealing, while keeping the core elements of his spooky look.
