Bayonetta cosplayer’s incredible gun heels will leave you spellbound

Bayonetta is easily one of the most popular female video game characters to come out of the PS3 and Xbox 360 era with her dynamic look that can be a difficult task to pull off for aspiring cosplayers. However, Jess K Cosplay was up for the challenge and then some.

Posting to Reddit under the account name supernes64, the user showed off her incredible Bayonetta getup equipped with the long hair, signature glasses, back exposure and earrings that made up the witch’s look from the game.

Of course, one of the more difficult parts to get right are Bayonetta’s iconic gun heels strapped to her feet – not just for appearance reasons, but practicality too. No one wants to go to a convention and be falling down the entire time.

As part of her costume, Jess K Cosplay went all out and included the famous weapons, but gave her outfit’s main heels a bit of space from the firearms. Overall, the whole thing was top notch and she nailed the legendary PlatinumGames protagonist.

In the comments on the thread, Jess revealed that she had a lot of practice walking in the heels prior to PAX Australia. How much practice? Months.

“I didn’t even have a single fall, but I actually practiced walking in them for a few months before the convention!” she wrote.

However, there was definitely a physical cost to such daunting attire. “My feet were killing me,” the model explained. “I did two 7-hour days in them!”

Anyone wanting to see the incredible cosplay in action may get their wish as she said she might be bringing the outfit out for another spin in 2020.

It would be fun to see if Jess could remodel the design slightly to match the witch’s new look as seen in Bayonetta 2.

A third game in the series was announced at The Game Awards in 2017 as a Nintendo Switch exclusive.

Outside of her main game, the character also made her way to Super Smash Bros for the Wii U as a DLC character and then on Ultimate for the Switch as part of the game’s main roster.

Additionally, in 2013, an anime film titled Bayonetta: Bloody Fate was released and well-received.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
