This cosplay of the Valkyrie skin might be the best take we’ve seen on a Fortnite outfit so far.

The Valkyrae skin was released back in 2018 but remains one of the most detailed character designs we’ve seen in Fortnite to date.

Having been introduced in Fortnite Season 5, this Legendary outfit is very hard to come by today and you won’t see too many players rocking it anymore.

Valkyrie first debuted back in Season 5.

The outfit itself ran players a whopping 2,000 V-Bucks, but it can become much pricier thanks to the pickaxe, glider, and back bling that are all included in the set.

Its intricate design is why Valkyrie remains a very popular skin to cosplay, thanks to the elaborate amount of detail Epic put into it.

Cosplayer Germia unveiled her own take on the model, quickly blowing fans away with what could very possibly be the best Fortnite cosplay we’ve seen so far.

While the design is from Fortnite, many fans will instantly make connections to the HBO series Game of Thrones as she looks like she could sit on a throne right next to the villainous Night King.

Germia revealed her finished cosplay on February 2, but fans who follow her on Instagram knew she has been working on the outfit for quite a while now, as she posted frequent updates leading up to this moment.

The Norwegian cosplayer couldn’t have picked a better option from Fortnite as the Valkyrie skin is based on the warrior angels of the same name from Norse mythology.

Fortnite Season 5’s theme was Worlds Collide, meaning it was a perfect opportunity to introduce some mythology into the game.

One of the teasers leading up to the season included a frozen ax, which was the first indication for players that Epic Games were willing to add some new ideas to the game.

Now that she’s shown her Valkyrie cosplay to the world, we’re excited to see what Germia is able to come up with next. It’ll be hard to do, but perhaps she could even top this latest design with her next project.

League of Legends cosplayer ready to rebel as Vastayan “baddy” Xayah

League of Legends cosplayer Wanderlustica, who made a name for herself as a cosplay extraordinaire, has brought feisty ADC heroine Xayah to life in all her Vastayan glory ⁠— you won’t see many LoL cosplays much better than this!

In 2017, League of Legends developers Riot Games decided to try something a little outside the box for their next champion release. Instead of dropping just one character, they debuted a duo ⁠— feathery Vastayan lovers Xayah and Rakan.

The pair fit like a glove. She was an ADC, and he was her support. The pair ⁠— and their sassy love ⁠— soon became fan-faves in the League of Legends fandom.

Of course, like any League favorite, there’s been plenty of cosplay takes on the pair. Now, that includes famous cosplayer Wanderlustica, who donned a stunning costume of the LoL “baddy” for an Instagram photoshoot earlier this month.

Wanderlustica’s stunning Xayah cosplay is absolutely amazing. She’s got every detail on point, from the Vastayan’s big busy ears, to her blue and red battle robe, and even the skull adorned on her shoulder from her old victories.

The Xayah outfit also had the purple hood the ADC wears into every game on Summoner’s Rift, as well as her glorious purple and blood-red feathers. Luca rounded out the cosplay with knee-high wrap boots, and tough steel vambraces.

“I definitely loved wearing this cosplay, I love badass characters and Xayah is definitely one of them!” the Dutch cosplayer said of her League cosplay. “I’m so in love with it.”

Luca, who often makes her cosplays before showing them off on Instagram, was actually sent this Xayah outfit from Ezcosplay. The cosplay company had put the outfit together for Wanderlustica, who then added makeup and effects.

Wanderlustica is far from the only League cosplayer to unveil a fancy new outfit recently either. Ariatamagotchi got into the Halloween spirit earlier this month with a perfect take on Bewitching Nidalee, and Sweet Angel donned an awesome Akali cosplay in late September.

Luca also has more LoL projects in the works too. She’s already set to reveal her new K/DA cosplay soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that in November!
