Apex Legends cosplayer phases in amazing Wraith look

A hardcore Apex Legends fan did an astounding job of recreating Wraith’s Void Specialist skin IRL with a cosplay worthy of the Interdimensional Skirmisher herself.

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale games out there, and Wraith has been the go-to character for frag-loving players since the title’s release.

She’s also one of fans’ favorite legends to cosplay, and fumika_owo did a fantastic job of bringing Wraith into the real world.

“There’s a win out there waiting for us.”

Void Specialist was one of the original skins to come out with the hero at launch, and fumika nailed every last detail down to her pink rebreather mask.

The pink accents on the black base are what make the skin unique, and she seemed to be able to pin them down exactly.

As an added touch, fukima comes equipped with a Wingman revolver, the weapon of choice for all those sweaty Wraith mains out there.

Finally, some glowing green eyes perfectly framed by the character’s trademark hairstyle bring the costume together, and make it seem like the skirmisher is looking right back at us.

“Follow me if you want to win.”

The amount of detail that went into the whole cosplay, like the wires, tubes, and spikes are all accurate to the in-game model, unfortunately we don’t know how long it took fumika to complete the project.

Wraith is so far the only Apex character fumika has cosplayed, according to her Instagram, but based on how good it looks, we wouldn’t be surprised to see more.

In another shot, she even shows off her own version of Wraith’s heirloom weapon, which was probably much easier (and cheaper) to obtain than the in-game version.

“Can’t catch what you can’t see.”

The cosplayer obviously enjoys her Apex Legends, but is a die-hard Overwatch fan as well, dressing up as Mercy and D.Va, to name a few.

Apex itself is well into its second year, and players are currently gearing up for Season 5, which will hopefully come with some great Wraith skins to produce more cosplays like this one.

Apex Legends cosplayer drops jaws as a pistol-wielding Loba

A stylish, flirtatious, luxury thief, Loba Andrade is obviously one of cosplayers’ favorite Apex Legends characters. A fact easily justified by Diana Aleshina, who recreated the chic cat burglar’s look.

At nine years old, Loba saw her parents get murdered by a shadowy, spooky hitman. That led to her needing to fend for herself, pickpocketing a way toward luxury and, eventually, toward entry into Apex Legends as a “High Society Thief.”

Clothed in a sophisticated, all-white ensemble, with touches of gold bracelets and fingerless gloves, the fashion-forward character rocks braided red locks as comfortably as she wields her pistol and staff. 

Unsurprisingly, the entire aesthetic, down to splashes of red makeup surrounding her eyes, has been a hit with cosplayers. And Aleshina, who goes by ‘aquarelled’ on Instagram, has put her own spin on the look, while maintaining the essentials.

While some of the pieces of clothing or props might not be identical to Loba’s in-game gear, the overall sentiment rings strongly through. A white, low-cut tank top replaces the Legend’s low-cut, modified corset. An unzipped leather jacket replaces Loba’s feathered, miniature jacket. And a simple black choker replaces the luxury thief’s golden choker.

But she’s got got red eye makeup, a vibrant red braid, and appears very, very ready to make use of her brandished pistol and staff.

And although visibly obvious, aquarelled reaffirms that she shares a certain kinship with the Legend by quoting Loba in her caption: “‘I know what I like…and I know how to get it.’ It’s absolutely my character.”

Outside of cosplay, Aleshina appears less hell-bent on revenge as Loba, but equally multifaceted in her interests. Her Instagram bio maintains that she is a permanent artist, a singer, a comics girl, an anime lover, and a “bootybuilder.”

While one can’t be sure that Loba has ever had time for comics or anime, a number of those other preoccupations most certainly fit her character and, as such, it is no surprise that Aleshina had such a comfortable time recreating her look. 

As of yet, there has been no word on if the cosplayer will bring her talents to some of Loba’s unique legendary skins. But one can assume that if she sees a look that she likes, she will get it.
