An Overwatch and League of Legends cosplayer found the perfect way to fuse her love of Mei with K-pop group K/DA’s Akali.

Cosplayer Kiiroi27 took to Reddit to show off her take on Mei in a crossover with K/DA and the result is really something to behold.

The unique cosplay primarily takes Mei’s face and body, but puts Akali’s K/DA attire over her. This means the iconic face mask, top and half-jacket are included and help make up the ensemble.

Even the hat with its three stars under the lid is included for some nice flair.

Meanwhile, the Mei element remains completely intact with the Overwatch hero’s face looking perfect, glasses to match and the hair being on point too.

If the Reddit posts weren’t enough, Kiiroi27 also uploaded some photos to her Instagram account.

In one, she wields Mei’s Endothermic Blaster while holding a photo of her dressed as Akali performing the same pose.

In another, she poses for the camera with her hands stretched outwards and one last one where she adjusts her glasses anime style.

This isn’t the first time Overwatch has merged with League of Legends. As Dexerto reported back in 2019, a fan created some incredible crossover skins that merged Tracer with Akali, Mercy and Kai’sa, D.Va and Ahri, and Widowmaker alongside Evelynn.

As for Kiiroi27, she’s also done some other unique takes with Mei including another crossover that merged OW and the Harry Potter universe. A magical combination to say the least.

It’s quite clear that the cosplayer has some impressive talent and there’s no telling what else she could have in store for us in the future, especially once Overwatch 2 comes out.

Samira might be a new addition to the League of Legends roster, but cosplayers are already giving the Desert Rose some love. None have done it better than ‘neytiri’ though, who has pulled off Samira’s PsyOps skin perfectly.

Samira has only been out in League of Legends for a matter of weeks. However, cosplayers are already flocking to design their next outfits around the Noxian marksman.

The Desert Rose, with her swagger and style, might be a far cry from the ever-popular K/DA cosplays going around, but that doesn’t make any effort any less impressive.

Samira might be new, but cosplayers have already turned around amazing outfits as League’s newest marksman.

League of Legends cosplayer and streamer ‘neytiri’ has put her own take on Samira’s PsyOps skin, and it looks like it’s straight off of Summoner’s Rift.

Neytiri managed to put together the cosplay shortly after Samira’s reveal. It was on the request of many of her fans, who said that she would fit the bill perfectly.

“So many people requested I cosplay her after her photos were released, I hope you enjoy how I brought her to life,” she said on Instagram.

Neytiri’s Samira cosplay features the leather jacket and camo pants that feature in the PsyOps skin. Her purple hair is just like Samira’s in-game, and she crafted an eyepatch for herself that replicates the one found in the skin.

She even found the perfect pistol to accompany the cosplay, playing into Samira’s explosive blades and bullets playstyle.

It’s a perfect replica of the new Noxian’s style in-game, and her fans have fallen in love with it. They weren’t wrong about neytiri being a perfect fit for Samira ⁠— she has absolutely done the skin justice with her cosplay.

It’s only early days for people to jump on the Samira cosplay train, but it’s likely this one is going to be one of the greats for a long time yet. It’s the most popular one by far, and it’s for a good reason.
