Cosplayer ‘nixcosplays’ showed off an amazing take on Albedo from the anime Overlord, with stellar attention to detail.

Overlord is a popular anime series in which the main character, Ainz Ooal Gown, is stuck in a virtual reality MMORPG world inhabited mostly by AI.

He is the leader of a powerful guild and has many AI servants, including one of the most popular characters in the series, Albedo.

Cosplayer nixcosplays showed off her amazing version of the fan-favorite character in a post that became incredibly popular almost instantly.

EnterbrainAlbedo is a fan favorite in Overlord.

It’s easy to see how the cosplay got so much attention, as it was put together incredibly well, right down to the tiniest of details. Things like tiny gems and chains showed just how much work went into it.

The outfit overall was very accurate, with the gloves, dress, and accessories matching up perfectly to the character. Even the hair and horns were almost identical.

Many comments cited the cosplay as “beautiful” and “elegant” and rightfully so, as it largely features a sleek white dress.

It’s a good change of pace from the usual cosplays, which feature flashy outfits or incredibly complex costumes, as many other characters tend to have a lot to them.

However, the cosplay is missing one key detail – Albedo’s iconic black wings. It’s possible they were removed for simplicity’s sake, or they weren’t ready at the time of this photo, but nixcosplays has confirmed that they are on the way.

Currently, cosplayers who wish to take on the role of Albedo are fairly limited in choice as the character is only seen wearing one outfit. However, the series is expected to continue so fans may be seeing something new sometime in the future.

My Hero Academia brings All For One to life as Nana Shimura

While readers of the manga have long known about the character, Shimura made her first technical appearance in Season 2 of the anime as a silhouette. Viewers got their first true look at All Might’s mentor in the third arc.

Prolific cosplayer ‘penberly’ went viral on Instagram after truly bringing the character to life with her insanely accurate costume. Photographer ‘maze_studio’ captured the artist posing in the heroine’s signature black bodysuit.

The cosplayer’s white cape drapes over her shoulders while she recreates the heroine’s signature battle stance with her fists in the air. Penberly nailed every aspect of the protagonist’s outfit, from her massive yellow gloves to the gold chain that runs across her chest to connect each side of the cloak.
