A skilled cosplayer has taken Isabelle from the Animal Crossing series and transformed her into a real-life work of art that is so cute, it’ll make you want New Horizons even more.

Isabelle was first introduced in New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS as a secretary and assistant to the mayor (AKA you!) and quickly became one of the series’ most loved characters due to her clumsy, yet adorable personality.


Cosplayer Shan decided to bring the lovable pooch to life with an adorable take that’s so accurate, it looks as though she’s jumped right out of the console screen itself.

Isabelle is so cute!

Adorable Isabelle cosplay

In the games, Isabelle has two outfits: summer and winter. While her winter attire is more suited to the cold weather with a yellow jacket, she wears a green plaid shirt with a navy blue knee-length skirt in the warmer months. The cosplayer pulls this off perfectly in her take, and even includes the little red bow placed on the collar.


The pooch also wears a hint of red in her hair, which, in a shock to some, was revealed to actually be styled after a Bell bag which is the main currency in the Nintendo series. The money bag is tied up with a red ribbon – something that designers mimicked when creating her.

In the shot, Shan ties her Animal Crossing look together by posing with a bag of Bells, making the game-to-life re-creation complete with perfect accuracy.


In an earlier photograph shared to Instagram, the cosplayer shares a more detailed glimpse at her design. Using circles of blush on her cheeks and nose to look more animal-like, the England-based artist poses innocently as she looks away from the camera.

Isabelle’s ears are also given a closer look, which are blended seamlessly in a blonde, curly wig with perfectly parted bangs that frame her face. It’s hard to imagine what the assistant would look like were she actually real, but it probably wouldn’t be far off from this.

The adorable dog isn’t the only Animal Crossing character Shan has cosplayed as in the past – she’s also dressed up as the cranky and very grumpy mole Resetti, who is infamous for showing up in-game and scaring kids when they turn off their console without saving.

The latest installment in the life simulation franchise, New Horizons, lands onto Nintendo Switch on March 20 after almost seven years since the last main entry released.

It hosts a whole horde of new features, such as landscaping, crafting, outdoor furniture placement, and more, and is gearing up to be the best Animal Crossing game yet.

An Animal Crossing YouTuber went viral after re-creating The Simpsons’ iconic intro in New Horizons. The player’s incredible mashup is one of the best things you’ll see today.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons took the world by storm after making its debut in March. The latest release in the long-running franchise introduced new features such as the ability to shape your village however you see fit using terraforming.


The new mechanic has sparked the imaginations of millions of users on social media, and one creator went viral after using the tool to bring The Simpsons to the social-simulation title. Their re-imagination of the classic cartoon’s intro is the perfect crossover.

The Simpsons made its debut in 1989, and has gone on to become a juggernaut in pop culture over the last three decades. In 2020, the animation is in its 31st season. To celebrate, a player re-created the show’s intro in New Horizons.


Gaming YouTuber ‘Great-Bit Arcade‘ uploaded their mind blowing creation to their channel on July 29, and quickly went viral. The video carefully re-creates the animation’s iconic intro, which follows the Simpson family throughout their town of Springfield.

The fan creatively used assets from Animal Crossing to create the town’s nuclear plant, before hilariously cutting to their character writing on a chalk board in school while wearing Bart Simpson’s signature outfit.

Great-Bit’s video meticulously recreates every scene, from Maggie and Marge driving to Lisa playing her saxophone in school. The YouTuber even created a couch gag with the Simpson family walking in to find Tom Nook and Isabelle taking up all the space on their sofa.


Animal Crossing’s latest release has been a major success for Nintendo. In a quarterly report posted in August, it was revealed the social simulation title has sold over 22.4 million units – making it the second highest-selling game on the console.

New Horizons’ terraforming tool has encouraged players from around the world to share their creations on social media. Fans have reimagined things from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away to Avatar: The Last Airbender using the game’s new feature.
