“When Hell freezes over, I’ll start calling it Heaven.”

Rylai, the Crystal Nova-ing, Frostbiting, Freezing Field-generating Crystal Maiden of Dota 2 fame has never looked better or more real than Ksana Stankevich’s amazing cosplay rendition.

Сестричек пост ❄️💥 На самом деле так вышло, что за все время существования моей ЦМ, у меня только 1 фотография с Линой, и та селфи Наконец-то эта ситуация исправлена! Целых 2 дня мы работали вместе с замечательной @_drei_vier_ и я обмазывалась каноном ооооо И внешность обманчива, так вышло, что характер Лины достался мне, так что если я вдруг тебя обидела чем-то, то простииииии я любя ❤️. #dota2 #dota2cosplay #adrenalinecyberleague #crystalmaiden #crystalmaidencosplay #rylai #ksanastankevich #lina #linacosplay #adrenalinerush #frostavalanche #cosplay #cyberleague

From Rylai’s official description: Wherever Rylai went, the cold went with her. Fields and orchards withered in her wake, leaving her parents no choice but to pack her off to Icewrack, a realm in the frigid north. Under the tutelage of a hermit wizard, Rylai learned to imprison her enemies with Frostbite, holding them in place as she freezes the ground with Crystal Nova. Magic flourishes under her Arcane Aura, stimulating mana regeneration in all her companions. In the heat of battle, Rylai keeps a cool head. Channeling her elemental talents, the Crystal Maiden summons enormous shards of ice from the skies, obliterating all foes foolish enough to remain in her Freezing Field.

Crystal Maiden’s level-up voice-line “Is it cold in here or is it just me?” references 1993 action movie Demolition Man starring Wesley Snipes and Sylvester Stallone.
