I duo queue with Tricky Love in LoL where I main support and he's ADC. I liked using Sona, and this was Tricky Love's favourite skin so we collaborated on making this costume happen. The wig is a custom dyed gradient and started off as completely white. Not interesting much to say about the sewn parts of the costume since it was all pretty straight forward for me.
The arcade stick is made from pink insulation foam, and splits off into 3 parts so we can travel with it (we fly with it as checked baggage and have had no issues so far). Thick cardstock covers the foam like a shell, and Tricky Love used magnets so that the joysticks could actually pivot around. The buttons ARE NOT Staples Easy buttons XD (I get that question a lot) they are LED push lights.
