Summer lives on in the Pool Party cosplay gallery!

By Riot Yuka

Summer may be coming to a close, but these cosplayers are sending it off with a splash! We asked our creative cosplay community to send in photos showing off their Pool Party gatherings and the response was overwhelming- from Yordles to creatures of the Void, everyone on the Rift wanted to let their hair down. Check out our favourite 20 groups from the summer below!
