Apex Legends cosplayer greets death as supernatural Wraith

Apex Legends’ Wraith, or Renee Blasey, is an interdimensional skirmisher who has now entered our dimension in a prop- and effect-filled cosplay from ‘_sarenji_.’

According to lore, Blasey was a senior science pilot who experimented upon herself, was betrayed by a coworker, and emerged as a split personality with multiple voices and a unique ability to transcend dimensions, most notably with the Void. Cosplayer sarenji is all too aware of the Legend’s dichotomy, as she recreated both sides of Wraith: the normal and the ethereal.

As Wraith’s voice line indicates in the cinematic trailer, she has a close affinity with death. That relationship between death and living, between the void and reality, is reflected in sarenji’s cosplay as she contrasts a normal, kunai-brandishing Wraith with one who has whited out eyes and an aura of electricity (or whatever matter enables void transcendence).

The kunai comes from replica3d, the outfit and wig from ezcosplay, but the recreation of both sides of the popular character comes directly from sarenji. 

 

Overall, the reactions to her look have been overwhelmingly positive, as people from across the internet have commented their appreciation. One user commented, “Saw this in Facebook, amazing cosplay, love you,” while another remarked, “Saw this on Reddit and came to follow! You should try doing some of her other skins too. 10/10.”

The idea of recreating some of the other skins is pretty fun, as Wraith has some seriously obnoxious outfits and looks in the game. One that immediately stands out would be her legendary “Protector of the Void” skin, from August 2019’s “Iron Crown Collection” event. With armor and bold face paint, that would be an excellent second choice for her cosplay (and would not require a buzzcut like some of the other popular skins).

Unfortunately for the Reddit fan, seranji doesn’t seem intent on doing any more Wraith cosplaying anytime soon. As mentioned in her Instagram bio, her next two cosplays will be Loba and Octane. 

Going from Wraith to Loba will be interesting shift, but the switch to Octane will be an even starker contrast. No word yet on if she’ll be going so far as to recreate his bionic legs or stim usage, but the kunai, void electricity, and phase-walk contacts have set a high bar.

League of Legends cosplayer blooms like a flower as Spirit Blossom Ahri

Spirit Blossom Ahri is one of the most vibrant champion and skin combinations in League of Legends, but rather than trying to imagine how awesome she’d look in the real world, a cosplayer named Faid Eyren made it happen.

League of Legends characters all have a unique look and vibe. However, it’s hard to name one more fascinating than Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox. She is a part of an animal-like race called Vastaya. They descended from enlightened mortals that harnessed power from the spirit realm.

Ahri has that power too. Her abilities revolve around reshaping magic into orbs of raw energy. She’s also technically a Nine-Tailed Fox, with nine tails flaring out from her backside.

Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox, has one of the best-looking character models in the game.

Ahri’s default skin looks fantastic. However, Spirit Blossom Ahri looks even better. It has a more floral and mystical appearance, complete with pink hair, bright blue tails, and a majestic white and pink kimono.

Faid Eyren is a brilliant cosplayer from Ukraine. In the past, she’s dressed up as everything from Demon Slayer’s Shinobu Kocho to Sword Art’s Asuna Yuuki. Now, she’s brought Spirit Blossom Ahri to life.

“Every spirit forgets itself eventually, but I’m always on their horizon,” she said. “Finally, I’m happy to show you the result of our collaboration with @cosplaysky! I fell in love with this amazing costume immediately! It’s not just super beautiful, but very convenient to wear. It fits perfectly!”

The costume, which was designed and tailor-made by cosplaysky, is stunning from head to toe. But there’s no denying that Faid Eyren wore it well and made it look like the real deal. 

Let’s not forget about ears from lulu_cosplayer and the photography edits from gaerwen_art, either, which rounded it off nicely.

It’s hard to pull off Spirit Blossom Ahri since it’s one of the most majestic-looking skins in the game. However, Faid Eyren nailed it, and the overwhelming support and praise from her fans prove it.
