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.

Amazon Prime Day is now officially over, so no more deals to be had! Check back in 2021 for another set of great offers, but for now, Black Friday is the next chance for some good deals.

During the event, Amazon slashed the prices of some the world’s most sought-after games and technology – some of which is manufactured by the website itself. The likes of Amazon Kindles were up for grabs at a fraction of the usual cost, but aside from that, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players could have also pick up some nice sale items.

The likes of The Last of Us Part 2 and Mortal Kombat 11 were available for some $20 under the usual going rate, on PS4, with Xbox One’s Madden NFL 21 and Gears 5 available for cheaper.

Unfortunately, though, Prime Day has come and gone for another year. It started up on October 13 and ended on October 14, 2020. If you missed out, maybe next time you will think twice.

Now that these deals have expired, the next opportunity for major online deals will be Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which are a little over a month away. So, if you didn’t get your hands on your favorite item here, you may have a chance to try again in just a few weeks.
