With the first episode of Disney+’s exclusive Star Wars show The Mandalorian now available, one cosplayer went to great lengths to create an outfit to match the program’s title character. 

Reddit user love_marmite posted a photo of their incredible Bounty Hunter uniform in celebration of the show’s release and was met with a flurry of praise.

The cosplay has a lot of attention to detail with the helmet, in particular, looking like its seen its fair share of battles over the years.

Marmite’s chest, arms, and legs were covered with armor that matches the lived-in feel of the original Star Wars trilogy and something Disney has tried to recapture with its recent films.

Additionally, the cosplay is made complete with two blasters which could likely be holstered at a moment’s notice.

A user inquired about the helmet specifically and if the cosplayer had any challenges getting it right. “I used a resin cast as a base then I 3D printed parts and added them on,” love_marmite responded.

Another asked about how much visibility the cosplayer had under the helmet and was provided with a troubling reply.

“Visibility is iffy,” Marmite wrote. “You can’t see anything low down directly in front of you so stairs are an issue.”

Still, for such an incredible work of art, the pros should strongly outweigh the cons.

What is The Mandalorian?

The Mandalorian is the first live-action Star Wars series and centers around a bounty hunter similar to Boba Fett named Dyn Jarren.

Taking place after Return of the Jedi, but before The Force Awakens, the show gives audiences a fresh look into a time period not yet explored in traditional Star Wars media.

Season one debuted on November 12 with the first episode directed by Dave Filoni, the mastermind behind the animated Clone Wars program.

A second season has already been confirmed to be in the works with the first featuring a total of eight episodes and the finale scheduled for December 27, 2019.

The Mandalorian is available right now on Disney+.

Apex Legends cosplayer takes Horizon outfit to new heights

An Apex Legends cosplayer has stunned fans of Respawn’s BR by bringing Horizon to life, ensuring the Season 7 legend has never looked so real. 

The Apex Legends community has an incredible connection with Respawn’s source material, regularly sharing artwork, videos and cosplays inspired by the world and characters.

Horizon cosplays are obviously still fairly new, given that the Scottish legend was only added with Season 7. The Gravitational Manipulator has brought new levels of verticality to the Olympus map, thanks to her Gravity Lift, Spacewalk and Black Hole abilities.

As far as aesthetics go, Horizon is known for her spacesuit theme. Her iconic ginger hair protrudes out the top of her suit. It’s an awesome look, simultaneously cool and terrifying to see coming towards you in-game.

Horizon’s abilities give incredible movement options.

One cosplayer, though, took on the challenge and, with some incredible skill, came out looking exactly like the legend herself.

Sosenka (@itlookslikekilled on Instagram) shared her Horizon look on December 4, stunning her followers and the Apex community alike. She has previously shared a Loba cosplay, but many agreed that her Horizon look was even more impressive.

The white suit is complete to perfection, with the goggles and arm bands even down to a tee. At the time of writing, it sits at just shy of 9,000 likes.

The look was so good that it even drew the attention of Elle Newlands – the voice actress behind the Season 7 legend.

She said: “I stan, you stan, we all stan for the #Horizon Cosplay Queen!” 

Horizon, despite being fairly new to the game, has taken well to the Olympus map, currently sitting in our A-Tier in our legend rankings. Her pick rates are fairly high, and abilities incredibly useful. Cosplays as good as this only make us want to use her more.
