A Pokémon cosplayer brought Espeon to life with a beautifully detailed outfit that will make you wish the adorable critter was actually real.

Espeon is a Psychic-type Pokémon from Generation II, and is evolved from Eevee when using a Moon Shard or with high friendship during the morning or the day. It made its first appearance in the Gold and Silver games for the Nintendo Game Boy Color.

Cosplayer Spring from ‘White Spring Cosplay’ took her love of the adorable creature and turned it into a fully fledged outfit – the results are amazing.

While it can be difficult to pull off a look based around something that’s not human, Spring nailed her rendition of Espeon, taking the creature’s lilac and pink colors and turning it into an amazing costume.

She created a waist sash and a hood with the Pokémon’s ears on to mimic its design, but also used two red gems – one on her forehead and one on her chest – to really pull the look together.

In a previous Instagram post, the cosplayer revealed that the outfit only took less than two days to make – something you wouldn’t know by looking at the costume because of how detailed it is.

The inclusion of multiple types of fabric come together to create the illusion of weeks worth of work, and really gives the cosplay a polished finish.

Spring has also cosplayed Umbreon before, another evolution of Eevee. Instead of using a Sun Shard to evolve, players must use a Moon Shard or high friendship during the night.

Her cosplay of the other evolution is just as impressive, and again, she used a hood to replicate the Pokémon’s ears.

The Norwegian cosplayer’s creations prove popular as she boasts almost 27,000 followers on her Instagram page, with many fans commenting praise on the photos she posts.

Pokémon Sword and Shield are due to be released for Nintendo Switch on November 15, so players can be sure to see many more incredible cosplays nearer the time.

World of Warcraft has inspired a whole collection of amazing cosplays, but one cosplayer truly brings WoW into reality with her amazing Kyrestia cosplay. 

When it comes to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft universe, there are limitless possibilities to create amazing cosplays. The huge array of iconic characters, coupled with the impressive customization for your own hero or villain, makes the title perfect for passionate fans.

We recently saw cosplayer Cinderys create an amazing Sylvanas cosplay just in time for the release of Shadowlands, which in turn managed to score her Blizzard’s seal of approval.

This time around the subject of this amazing cosplay is Sylvanas’ polar opposite, Kyrestia the Firstborne, the ruler of Bastion.

Kyrestia has become one of The Ascended’s most iconic faces.

Cosplayer ascends as Kyrestia

2021 has brought with it a lot of insane cosplays, but this one is certainly one of the most memorable so far.

Artist PlexiCosplay (Plexi) has outdone herself with this beautiful transformation. Having painted herself aqua from head to toe, she can be seen adorned in Kyrestia’s iconic white and gold outfit whilst channeling the Ascended queen’s angelic nature.

What your eyes are immediately drawn to are the wings though. Mirroring the sky blue of her skin, their construction is perfect. Tipped with gold trims that tie in with her vestments and stunning recreation of the warrior’s crown, Plexi literally is Kyrestia.

WoW fans are stunned

Considering the wings are, according the Plexi, “15 feet long,” it’s safe to say that fans can’t miss this cosplay.

It’s the wings that have really gotten attention. One fan’s hilarious comment simply wrote: “the wind: I’m about to end this woman’s whole career,” to which Plexi responded “YOU NAILED IT.”

Another respondent was equally as humorous, writing “Kyrestia flight 77 you are cleared for takeoff, proceed to runway 4.”

All of these comments though praised this amazing cosplay, with one comment summing it up: “This blew my mind!!! I thought someone cropped the Archon out and pasted her onto some road!”

It’s safe to say that Plexi has truly embodied the fan favorite Ascended. She’s not only radiant, but emits a ‘don’t mess with me’ aura. We can’t wait to see her next WoW cosplay, as if she keeps going like she’ll be the queen of not just Bastion, but the WoW cosplay scene in no time!
