A talented Overwatch cosplayer showed off her take on Korean tank hero D.Va, and showed exactly why Black Cat is one of the game’s best skins.

D.Va was awarded with her Black Cat skin in January 2018 as part of a major cosmetics update for the hero shooter, and almost instantly, people fell head over heels in love with it.

Players have even created outfits based off of the costume, which cosplayer Renata Melo did, sharing her incredibly charming take on the popular cosmetic.

Black Cat D.Va comes to life

In the tank’s outfit, she wears a black lace gothic-Lolita influenced dress similar to that of a Korean maid costume, with full-length black tights and similarly colored shoes.

The Brazilian nails every single aspect perfectly, and included every intricate feature of the dress, including the white pearl and pink ribbon detailing around her waist.

She even paired it up with similar ribbons around her wrists, and replicated the character’s necklace choker with a matching one too.

Another shot shares a closer look at the cosplayer’s hair and makeup, which again mimics the Korean’s with incredible accuracy.

She even included her cat ears headband and added more pink ribbons to the side of her head to tie the whole look together perfectly.

Her bold eyelashes and simple makeup also complement the hero, and gives her a flushed, fresh-faced appearance that just completes the outfit flawlessly.

Female protagonist from popular anime Death Note, Misa Amane, has been perfectly recreated by a skillful TikTok cosplayer who went viral for her emulation of the darkly adorable character.

Released back in 2006, the anime version of Death Note remains to be a hugely popular show even to this day, with the combination of its psychological thriller based plot and fascinating characters proving to be a smash-hit.

The story follows a battle of intelligence and wit between Light Yagami, a student with a new found power to kill anyone he wishes with just their name, and L, a prodigy turned detective who is determined to pick off a mysterious killer with inconceivable powers.

Death Note’s Misa Amane has become an iconic character for casual fans and cosplayers alike.

However one character, though occasionally divisive, has scooped up a sizable fan base; Misa Amane. Misa is a wannabe model with an adorable personality and a more than a crush on Light. Despite her cute demeanor, she harbors a dark past and even darker secrets that thrust her right into the center of the narrative.

One talented cosplayer sawyerrd decided to take Misa’s darker look on board, and recreated the popular anime character so well that several of the clips went viral on TikTok.

The outfit itself is uncannily similar to the original design. Her white blond hair has a soft curl, with two tiny pigtails tied on the top of her head with black bands to emulate that anime hairstyle, whilst giving it a realistic edge.

Her makeup is perfectly applied, and sawyerrd has even stuck what appears to be gems beneath her lower eyelid which makes her eyes shimmer slightly, giving her a look that has elements of the classic bright anime style eyes.

The necklace is super intricate, a lace choker with delicate chains that hang in a criss-cross pattern with cross and heart charms that sum up Misa’s character perfectly. The lace gloves and intricate black bodice complete the look.

@sawyerrdShe’s dead? How unexpected! 😌💖 ##misa ##deathnote ##deathnotecosplay ##misacosplay ##misaamane ##misaamanecosplay ##anime ##ScaryStories ##cosplay ##light♬ original sound – yeet yurt 🐝

Sawyerrd’s lip syncing skills were on point, mouthing along to some iconic Misa scenes, looking even more perfect as a live-action version of the popular character.

Fans clearly loved it too, with the most popular clips garnering over 100 thousand likes a piece, a great result for an even better cosplay.
