Introducing Heroes of Cosplay, Meet at Rift’s second ever international cosplay competition. Seven of the best cosplayers from each category – League of Legends and VALORANT will present their outfits during the upcoming event in Warsaw. We will cover the cost of the train or plane, as well as the hotel, while offering a prize pool of €4,000 – €2,000 per category.
