Like many JRPG fans, cosplayer FaeLaBlanche was excited for the release of Final Fantasy 7 Remake and tried her luck at recreating an outfit based on the game’s magical maiden, Aerith Gainsborough.

The stellar ensemble includes all of Aerith’s bracelet accessories, which stick to the source material and vary in color with bronze, silver, and copper.

Her red button-up bolero jacket is open too, just like how the character’s jacket is presented in-game, showing off her pink dress underneath.

Speaking of pink, the cosplay included Aerith’s pink ribbon to tie back her brown hair. Finally, FaeLaBlanche even incorporated the character’s brown boots that stand out in contrast to her more feminine attire to complete the outfit.

True to character, in a couple of photos on the model’s Instagram, she poses while holding yellow flowers – a nice touch seeing as she is first seen in the game carrying flowers and later giving one to the game’s protagonist, Cloud Strife.

In another neat photo, the cosplayer stands alongside fellow model Katstawp, who is dressed as Tifa. This is a nice touch seeing as the two female party members have several scenes together in Final Fantasy 7 and make quite the strong duo with Tifa’s rapid punches mixed in with Aerith’s magic.

This photo also has FaeLaBlanche wielding Aerith’s staff – her primary weapon in the game, so it’s nice that she didn’t forget about it when designing the outfit.

Aaaaaah, it’s really hard not to go into a rant about how my restyled wig and @haruhiism00 ‚s new one look so much better… but! @azproductioncosp nonetheless did an amazing job with what we handed him during @pixelmaniaevent – not that it was bad, but we both weren’t fully satisfied ? Either way – have a duo pic of Tifa and Aerith, which we hope you‘ll love and if you got fun ideas for duos… we‘re ready to hear them ?

Aside from Aerith, the cosplayer has also dressed up as Tifa and Jessie Rasberry, rounding out the Avalanche squad.

With Final Fantasy 7 Remake still having more parts of its story to tell, hopefully this isn’t the last we’ve seen of FaeLaBlanche’s Aerith or her takes on other classic characters.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is finally here, and cosplayers have been celebrating in the build-up, but one has truly outdone herself with an incredible recreation of Valeera Sanguinar.

World of Warcraft has one of the richest lores and stories in video game history. It’s filled with unique characters in all shapes and sizes and has told their stories for many years.

Now, their stories will continue once again in the latest expansion, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, which is now live. It revolves around the actions of Sylvanas Windrunner, who has ripped open a portal to the Shadowlands.

It’s certainly a dark timeline, but players are thrilled to have been called back into action. However, it’s hard to find anyone more excited than maywedacosplay, a popular Russian cosplayer named Eva.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands cosplay
Valeera Sanguinar is a popular character in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.

Eva celebrated the release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands by doing what she does best, cosplaying her favorite characters. She’s cosplayed many World of Warcraft characters in the past, and the standard of quality has always been top-notch.

Now, she’s cosplayed Valeera Sanguinar, a beloved blood elf rogue who has never formally joined either Horde or Alliance.

“Glory to Sin’dorei!” she said, quoting one of the blood elves’ most famous lines. “What characters do you want to see in Shadowlands the most?

Eva’s cosplay is stunning from head to toe. The hair, make-up, and green eyes are on point. However, the real highlight has to be the sheer level of quality in the hood, chest-piece, shoulders, bracers, and leggings.

All the pieces have a perfect blend of crimson-red mixed with gold elven seams. They have infamous green Fel crystals slotted into them, which have a long history with blood elves.

It’s a phenomenal cosplay that deserves all the praise. Plus, the high-quality photography and after effects make it even better. It might even be her best one yet.

All in all, it’s added to all the excitement surrounding World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and gotten her fans even more keen to play.
