Blind cosplayer Lisa Lou has stunned the internet with her incredible Borderlands 3 outfit, showcasing an expertly crafted Mad Moxxi.

Borderlands 3 released on September 13 to critical acclaim, with both reviewers and players ecstatic at another opportunity to drop in to Gearbox Software’s chaotic world. While feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, there are obviously a few minor issues with the game, as there is with any new release. 

One popular cosplayer has shown her passion for the game with an incredible outfit looking to emulate the look of Mad Moxxi, a non-playable mission provider in Borderlands 3.

It’s made even more incredible considering that Lisa is legally blind, but still gets the cosplay basically spot on. 

Mad Moxxi first featured in Borderlands 2, and offers players many of their mission as they explore Pandora. She is known for her trademark top hat and tip jar, which Lisa nails, along with every other aspect of the outfit. 

She shared the photos to Twitter on September 14, explaining how she has managed to learn to do her make-up without being able to use visual feedback as she does it. 

“I honestly think makeup has been the hardest thing to re-learn as a blind cosplayer,” she explained. “It’s been a journey getting to this point.”

In a second tweet, she went a little deeper, relaying how hard she has found painting since going blind. “Painting in general is hard and makeup is a version of painting, except delicate,” she said. “It’s been a lot of trial and error.” 

Feedback to Lou’s cosplay was overwhelmingly positive, with many stunned at how well the small details were replicated, such as the eye shadow and tip jar. 

“You look absolutely stunning and did a rad job Lisa,” one Twitter user said. Another went for: “Tagging my friend in this. She’s blind from birth and very good at makeup so the two of you may appreciate one another.”

It seems like people are being inspired by Lou’s incredible cosplay and, after looking at how accurate it is, it’s no surprise why.

Attack on Titan’s Eren Yeager is a popular choice among cosplayers, but a recent effort re-created the character perfectly, and the pictures have gone viral. 

Attack on Titan is one of the darkest and strangest mainstream animes in recent times. However, that hasn’t stopped it from becoming an incredibly popular smash-hit. If anything, it’s probably the reason why.

Nobody ever thought they’d be into a story about human soldiers locked into a battle with over-sized human-looking monsters called Titans who eat people.

Yet, here we all are, and we’re hooked. 

Attack on Titan has many interesting characters, but it revolves around Eren Yeager, the main protagonist. He started as an impulsive and hardheaded peasant with a burning despite to help eliminate Titans.

But he quickly grew into a capable member of the Scout Regiment and even stumbled upon a special power of his own. For that reason, he’s become a fan-favorite among fans and cosplayers alike.

A cosplayer named Noah Lance decided to step into Eren Yeager’s boots. They’re massive ones to fill, but he did such a great job, the photos have gone viral. The pictures have already generated almost 10,000 likes on Instagram.

“I hate people when they’re not polite,” he said, in reference to one of Eren Yeager’s quotes from the show. “If you end up on my table, then it serves you right.”

Noah’s outfit looks like the real deal. It has everything from the khaki-colored shirt, brown belt, brown straps to a replica necklace. The dual swords are the best feature, though, and they round it off nicely.

There’s also a second shot that provides a more zoomed-out view of the boots, straps, and pants. Noah’s definitely put in a lot of attention to detail, and it shows.

“And I’m hoping that you will see yourself like I see you,” he said.

Attack on Titan can be dark and grueling at times, but it still provides endless opportunities for fans and cosplayers to shine. Noah’s Eren Yeager cosplay is a testament to that.

The fourth and final series kicks off on December 7.

It marks the beginning of the end for the show, but there’s no doubt Attack on Titan fans will be in for a roller-coaster ride along the way.
