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.

One skilled cosplayer has tried her hand at recreating Ibuki Mioda from Danganronpa, and has done an excellent job – capturing the character’s outfit in her costume perfectly.

Danganronpa is a game franchise created by Spike Chunsoft, having produced three main titles along with a spinoff in the form of a third-person shooter.

The premise of the first game Trigger Happy Havoc, is that there are 15 students trapped within a school, and the only way to break free is to murder other students and get away with it. For each crime scene, there is a discussion over who the students believe the murderer is.

The game has secured itself a loyal following.

The subsequent games follow a similar premise, and consist of a varied cast of characters who sport unique personalities and interesting character design.

Danganronpa has a substantial following, with many players becoming attached to the fantastic range of characters, and naturally many have chosen to cosplay their favorite people from the game thanks to their appealing aesthetics.

Cosplayer ayuu.exe decided to give Ibuki Mioda a try, an upbeat musician with a quirky personality featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School.

Ayuu.exe has managed to replicate Ibuki perfectly. Her intensely dark hair is long and pin-straight, with blue and pink pastel strands, along with a stunningly bold box fringe consisting of accompanying neon colors.

The horns atop her head replicate the use of hair, oversized black and white striped additions that compliment her quirky personality.

Her school uniform is minimalistic but a perfect recreation of the sailor style original, even keeping with the soft pink ribbon that hangs with a white clasp in the centre of her torso. On one hand she wears a scrunchie, and on the other, a pink and black fingerless glove that just reflects how fantastic the attention to detail was in this cosplay.

The recreation was popular among fans, and ayuu.exe’s posts have now reached over 6000 likes combined on Instagram.
