An Overwatch cosplayer did a fantastic job at bringing Pharah’s Qinglong Lunar New Year skin to life with a sleek outfit.

Taking to Reddit, user Medhavi321 posted a photo of herself dressed up with the emblem on her chest lighting up.

The cosplay is really one of the most impressive Pharah concepts yet. Aside from not including a fully-functional jetpack, the outfit includes a neatly designed dragon helmet that perfectly aligns with the skin it’s based off.

Not only that, but Medha even went out of her way to acquire sharp emerald contacts that shine just like Pharah’s do when the skin is equipped in-game.

Every nook and cranny of the cosplay seems ripped right from the game, including the coloring and gold plating on the armor.

“How would you recommend getting started in the dress-up for a Comic-Con?” a user asked the redditor in the comments section.

“For starters don’t stress on details,” Medhavi321 responded. “Eva foam is the basic material most of the cosplayers work on. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube how to build props.”

The Qinglong Pharah skin was first added to Overwatch as part of the Chinese New Year event in 2018 and is considered one of the absolute best skins to be added in the event’s history.

Qinglong is a reference to the Azure Dragon – one of the Dragon Gods in Chinese culture. You can see why Blizzard went to such great lengths to ensure the skin was so well-crafted.

Medhavi’s other cosplays include DOTA 2’s Legion Commander, Black Widow from Marvel comic books, and even Triss Merigold from The Witcher 3.

With such incredible talent, we can’t wait to see what this cosplayer will sink her teeth into next. The sky is clearly the limit.

In another shot posted to social media, the cosplayer gave viewers a better look at all the details that went into creating her One Piece costume. She even drew letters on the back of her fingers to spell out ‘DEATH’ to mimic his hand tattoo.

Channeling the cutthroat’s personality, she grabs the tip of her fur cap while holding their weapon by her side. This is easily one of the best takes we’ve ever seen of the Heart Pirate.
