There was so much to see and do at ESL One Frankfurt, but we have to take a moment to give a special shout-out to all the amazing cosplayers who turned up at the Commerzbank Arena. Their participation went so much further than just competing in the cosplay competition, with so many awesomely costume characters roaming the stadium it made us feel like we were right in the middle of the struggle between the Radiant and the Dire. Even Na’Vi’s Dendi got in on the cosplay action:

Here are a few we managed to capture on film...
This dedicated Storm Spirit cosplayer (AKA Adriano "Merlino" Milone) not only turned in full costume on boths days - bright blue body paint included - but also turned up the the afterparty similarly attired. We salute your dedication, sir!
We actually had multiple Crystal Maidens in attendance, with each costume giving its own unique take on Rylai’s wintry beauty.
This awesome Legion Commander cosplayer speaks for itself! You can check out Aonir’s Facebook page here, as well as an interview she did with Lord Nod below:
Sean is right to look scared!

Watch out for that hook!

Some great crossplay - we especially liked the heels!
It’s not easy being green.
A for effort!
