An incredible Overwatch cosplayer has created a perfect version of one of the game’s most recognizable characters, showing off her near-perfect rendition of D.Va in her Black Cat skin.

D. Va is one of Overwatch’s most popular characters and is a former professional gamer herself, trading in her life as an esports icon to become a Mech Pilot in the Mobile Exo-Force. The 19-year-old was one of the original heroes introduced when the game launched, so it’s no surprise that many Overwatch fans have an affinity for her having seen her in action for so long, and many choose to cosplay as D.Va to show their appreciation and love for the character.

In January 2018, one of the hero’s most iconic skins was released in the form of her special ‘Black Cat’ look, and Overwatch fans have been dressing up in this exact outfit ever since, with cosplayer ‘himeahri’ becoming the latest player to show off their incredible version of the character.

D.Va’s Black Cat skin has become one of the character’s iconic looks.

Ahri, who admits that D. Va is a character she regularly plays, revealed her incredible take on the Black Cat skin on Instagram, and the cosplayer and streamer’s version is almost perfect, looking like it was lifted straight out of the game and brought into real life.

The cosplayer can be seen wearing the same black and purple dress that the character wears in-game, complete with the pink bow around her neck, and the pearl belt she wears on her waist, capturing every detail perfectly.

D. Va‘s gloves with pink cuffs are also there, while the streamer finishes the look off with the same feline ears that the mech pilot wears, and which give the skin its Black Cat name, complete with the pink bows in her hair, matching the one tied around her neck.

This isn’t the first time that Ahri has cosplayed as one of her favorite gaming characters, also showing off outfits for characters from League of Legends, and from anime such as Bunny Girl Senpai.

D. Va is a popular character to cosplay as, with fellow Overwatch fans unveiling looks in her regular skin, or in her Lunar New Year outfit, while others have dressed up as Ana or Mei.

Seraphine has been a hit in the League of Legends fandom, serenading millions as part of K/DA, as well as a solo artist. Few have managed to capture the Zaun and Piltovan artist’s essence as well as Brazilian cosplayer ‘kitsuneraposa’.

Seraphine might be one of the newest additions to League of Legends, but the popstar has already made it big. The support / mid laner has been a hit with fans, thanks to her @seradotwav Twitter account and K/DA collaboration on release.

Her story is the ultimate rags to riches one, and many fans have resonated with that. It also helps that she makes some pretty good music too.

Seraphine has become an iconic part of the Riot musical universe.

It’s made her a fan-favorite from well before she was even released, with many lining up to do casual cosplays of the League star. However, this one of her K/DA skin by ‘kitsuneraposa’ is one of the most decked out ones we’ve seen yet.

Raposa took on Seraphine’s ALL OUT design ⁠— stage and all ⁠— in their cosplay. No expense was spared, and it shows. From the wig all the way down to the platform, everything is absolutely picture perfect.

Raposa was actually brought on by Riot Brazil to do the cosplay, and said her experience was just like Seraphine’s growth.

“Everything worked out in the end and the result was stunning. I ended up identifying myself as [Seraphine], and like her, I lived the dream of being part of K/DA for a day,” they said on Instagram.

While Raposa is more known for her Ahri cosplays in the community ⁠— after all, Kitsune is in her name ⁠— her Seraphine one is easily her best work yet.

From the stunning metallic dress, to the crystal powered stage and microphone, every detail was meticulously combed over.

Her cosplay has won the world over, much like Seraphine herself did, and it’s for good reason. It’ll be hard to top this one for some time, and it’ll be one many cosplayers come back to so they too can transform into the Piltovan star.
