Star Wars’ spinoff show, The Mandalorian, blew up on Disney Plus with the help of Baby Yoda’s viral memes, and one cosplayer has taken their fandom to the next level with an astonishing take on the lead character. 

The show, which first premiered in November 2019, has an impressive 93% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is heralded as one of Disney’s best exclusive series’ to date. For those who haven’t watched it just yet, it follows the story of a bounty hunter, similar to Boba and Jango Fett.

One of the most impressive parts of the show was the production level, which you would expect to be at a tremendously high level for a Star Wars movie anyway. However, one fan has proven you don’t have to be on a Hollywood set or based deep into the desert to look like the character.

A homemade cosplay replicating the Mandalorian’s look has been created, and it might be the best we’ve seen so far.

Impressive cosplay of The Mandalorian

Everything from the helmet to the blaster is on point here, there’s no doubt about it.

This slick design from Reddit user Pikezer1337 flew to the very top of the r/cosplay subreddit on September 1, accompanying several others from different TV shows and video games. What’s special about this one, though, is the precision.

The detailing on the shoulders of the outfit show the time and effort spent on the clothing as well, fixing it up just right for collecting bounties. With a weapon like that in-hand, enemies don’t stand a chance.

Star Wars fans loved it

The comments received underneath the post were just as impressive. One user asked: “Did you just walk off set? Because this is the most on point Mando I’ve seen,” while another posted: “Awesome cosplay dude. Uprooted for flippy gun thing.”

Indeed, the flippy gun taunt in the video was good, but the star of the show has to be the cosplayer themselves. Pikezer thanked a number of users for chiming in with such kind words, and hopefully we will be seeing a lot more from them in the near future.

They said: “Tthanks a bunch for the kind words. I tell ya, I was so scared that thing was gonna fly off my finger and break.”

Thankfully, it didn’t come to that.

My Hero Academia cosplayer steals the spotlight as colossal Mt. Lady

Mt. Lady loves being the center of attention in My Hero Academia, but a talented cosplayer has stolen the spotlight from her with a colossal transformation that popped off hard on social media.

Yu Takeyama, better known as Mt. Lady, isn’t one of the central characters in My Hero Academia. She isn’t even in the top ten professional hero rankings. However, she is still ranked highly, coming in at Number 23.

But what she lacks in rank, she makes up for in size. Mt. Lady’s quirk, Gigantification, allows her to become 20 meters tall. It makes her stick out like a sore thumb, which she loves since she’s obsessed with the idea of fame and money.

Still, despite her materialistic ambitions and imperfections, she’s a true hero at heart. Her strength and size have come in handy multiple times, and she’s helped saved countless lives.

If Mt. Lady existed in real life, there’s no doubt she’d spend a lot of time posing in her hero outfit on social media. However, if that was her game, she’d definitely lose to a cosplayer named Sara Mei Kasai.

Sara has a little less than a million followers on Instagram, which is insane. But her cosplays are so good, every time she posts one, the numbers keep on climbing. Now, she’s outdone herself with a phenomenal Mt. Lady cosplay, and her fans love it.

“A NEW COSPLAY? YES! IT’S MT LADY!” she wrote. “Do you prefer pic 1 or 2? I couldn’t choose.”

Sara stole the spotlight in the outfit. She captured every detail, from the purple, white, and orange skintight bodysuit with three diamond-shaped dots, to the purple gloves, mask, and horns. And let’s not forget about the blonde hair. Mt. Lady herself would be impressed.

But while fans were busy trying to decide which of the two pictures they preferred, she posted another one. It was a before-and-after shot of the transformation and provided a more zoomed out perspective.

The two posts have almost 80,000 likes between them, which is impressive. However, it seems like just another day’s work for the talented cosplayer.

Sara has set the bar high for other Mt. Lady cosplayers to follow. She deserves to be in the spotlight for making this piece look so good, and she’ll undoubtedly remain there for quite some time.
