The Fire Keeper in Dark Souls is a friendly sight to come across when journeying around Lothric. Meeting her in the Firelink Shrine lets you shine even brighter as a player by helping you level up, and seeing this cosplay might just have the same effect.

Dark Souls’ Fire Keeper may not be able to see her beauty, but she’s a welcoming NPC to stumble across during your path through Lothric.

Locating in the Firelink Shrine, she can help you ‘heal’ Dark Sigils, and even is linked to one of the game’s endings ⁠— The End of Fire. While she shines bright in-game, Fire Keepers are actually “robbed of light,” serving as vessels for souls.

The Fire Keeper is one of the big NPCs in Dark Souls 3.

Cosplayer Lindsay Elyse has managed to perfectly recreate the Fire Keeper in real life though. Her cosplay of the Dark Souls NPC has turned many heads.

Featuring the Keeper’s iconic headwear, Elyse’s cosplay has missed no detail. The deep black dress, covering her from neck-to-toe, is exquisitely lined with jewels.

She also did the arm coverings from scratch, leaving only her fingers exposed to the light ⁠— just like the Keepers in-game. Her cosplay is very true to the character, and looks magnificent.

Of course, she has plenty of uses for it. A Twitch streamer, Elyse actually used images of it to promote her stream where she was playing Dark Souls 3. Hopefully with a cosplay like this, she’d be gunning for The End of Fire ending.

It’d be a challenge to play Dark Souls in the cosplay ⁠— after all, she is completely blind while wearing it ⁠— but it’s still stunning to look at. The cosplayer described it as one of her “dream” cosplays, and she put the effort in to really make it just that.

A Resident Evil Village cosplayer shared her mind-blowing true-to-life take on Alcina Dimitrescu. The talented artist brought the viral tall vampire lady to life with an insanely accurate costume.

Ever since her reveal in January 2021, the internet can’t get enough of the “tall vampire lady” that starred in Resident Evil Village’s trailer. Despite being the villain of the upcoming PlayStation 5 title, fans can’t get enough of the towering antagonist.

A cosplayer celebrated Alcina Dimitrescu by transforming into her with an incredibly detailed outfit. The artist’s perfect recreation is so accurate, it’s almost as if the terrifying character has walked right out of the screen and into real life.

Alcina’s explosion in popularity not only took many players by surprise, but Capcom itself was caught off guard by the internet’s obsession over the new villain. I mean, what’s not to love? The incredibly fierce antagonist has a unique design and looks badass the first time her towering height is revealed.

Prolific cosplayer Galina ‘rgtcandy‘ Zhukovskaya made waves on Instagram after sharing her faithful costume of the vampire on February 15. The artist perfectly recreated the antagonist’s iconic white silk pleated dress, as well as her signature large hat which hangs over her eyes.

Photographer Victoria ‘milliganvick‘ not only captured Galina as she posed as Dimitrescu but also helped the artist mirror Alcina’s look by meticulously applying makeup. This is easily one of the best portrayals of the tall vampire lady we have ever seen and it will be sure to capture fans’ hearts.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the talented duo also portrayed an iconic scene from the demo where Alcina emerges from a locked door and grabs Ethan. The 1:1 re-creation is chilling to say the least, as it brings the game to life like never before.

Resident Evil Village will make its debut on next-gen consoles and PC on May 7, 2021. The new entry in the popular survival-horror franchise will be the eighth in the series and will continue the design of 7 by using a first-person point of view.

While fans can’t seem to get enough of vampire Alcina Dimitrescu right now, it may be a different tune once the terrifying villain is chasing players down during the title’s epic story. One thing is for certain, though – the towering antagonist is already an icon in the genre.
