A Fallout cosplayer had an incredible approach to the pin-up Nuka Cola mascot of Nuka Girl with an outfit that is bound to impress fans of the post-apocalyptic Bethesda game.

Reddit user Sassy_Nickel took to the site’s Cosplay board to share her take on Nuka Girl for the world to see and combined with the impressive photoshoot, she looks like she is ripped right from the game.

The whole outfit is very true to the Nuka Girl mascot found in Fallout as she appears in ads for the soft drink. With knee-high boots, gloves, a pin-up themed space suit and jetpack, Sassy_Nickel did a fantastic job at mimicking the character.

Perhaps most impressive was the addition of the “Thirst Zapper” – a water gun in the shape of a Nuka Cola bottle. The weapon can be found in Fallout 4 and is perfectly redesigned as a prop as part of the cosplay.

In the comments section, Sassy_Nickel revealed that the whole cosplay was entirely homemade. “This was my first time trying something with so many props/accessories. Now I’m excited for the next challenge,” she wrote and added a grinning emoji.

She further provided more details writing, “The jetpack straps are made from cut up baseball umpire belts to match the gunbelt.”

Additionally, the cosplayer claimed that “the bubble helmet is an acrylic street light globe with the neck cut off” and “the shirt, pants and gloves are thrift shop items that I chopped up and repurposed.”

For the boots, however, she admitted that she bought a decent pair on Amazon because walking around a convention for hours would be painful if they weren’t comfortable.

In the Fallout universe, Nuka Cola was the most popular drink in America. Following The Great War, Nuka Cola bottlecaps became the currency of the land. Promotional posters featuring Nuka Girl can be found all over the game.

Sassy_Nickel’s photoshoot, done by Harlow Pinup Chicago, tries to take one of those posters and bring it to life with startling accuracy.

It will be fun to see what the cosplayer can whip up next time, especially given the attention to detail she put into Nuka Girl.

One of Jujutsu Kaisen’s most iconic characters is Satoru Gojo, the mysterious teacher at Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College. One cosplayer has brought the sorcerer to life with an insane outfit. 

It’s safe to say that the anime universe beautifully intertwines with the cosplay scene. With a whole host of characters and iconic titles, the Japanese cartoon genre has become a global phenomenon.

Jujutsu Kaisen has become one of the most popular animes of 2020, and has dominated streaming website Crunchyroll for the last few months.

The fantasy series features one character that has managed to attract quite a bit of attention though, and that’s Satoru Gojo, teacher and Jujutsu Sorcerer extraodinare.

One of the reasons that cosplayers have flocked to Gojo is his unique style, which sees his eyes covered by a black eyemask. An outfit posted on Instagram by weian_vann (Vann) really brings the character to life though.

Not only is the outfit a perfect replica, Vann has nailed the iconic silver hair that has become so synonymous with the Cursed Energy master.

There’s a sense of foreboding around him though, and we can imagine the anime-style purple smoke kicking up around him to imply that he’s not one to mess with. The first image sees him posed on a backward chair in a stature that’s both playful yet menacing.

Fans are obsessed

The Chinese cosplayer’s image has almost 62k likes, and the comment section is filled with a whole host of Jujutsu fans heaping praise upon him for being able to bring the iconic character to life.

One fan has written “NO WAYYYYY MY HEARTTTT,” reacting in a similar way to many of the sorcerer’s lovestruck students.

Another fan commented on Vann’s masterful recreation of Gojo’s iconic silver hair, asking “Wow! How long did it take to get the hair like that? It looks great!”

A final commenter praised the entire outfit, writing that Vann “did so good” and that the cosplay “looks so realistic!”

So it’s safe to say that fans are really loving Vann’s rendition of Gojo, because not only does he perfectly recreate the outfit but he really becomes the character. As the anime progresses it’ll be exciting to see if he does any more magical cosplays, but in the mean time we can happily swoon away over this one!
