To celebrate the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake on the PlayStation 4, a skilled cosplayer brought Aerith Gainsborough to life with a mind-blowing costume. The artist’s perfect re-creation of the RPG character will melt your heart.

After nearly 23 years, players are finally getting to return to Midgar as Final Fantasy 7 Remake released on April 10. The wildly-anticipated title reimagines the classic RPG from the ground up.

A talented cosplay artist transformed into one of the game’s lead heroines, Aerith. Her incredibly accurate portrayal of the flower girl will leave fans in awe, and is the perfect way to celebrate the iconic story’s rebirth.

Final Fantasy VII’s Aerith brought to life

The story follows Cloud Strife who is an ex-SOLDIER of the Shinra corporation that joins the eco-activist group Avalanche. Upon their journey to stop the destruction of the earth, the protagonist meets Aerith in the Sector 5 Slums.

Cosplayer Sophie ‘peachmilky_’ shared her detailed costume on social media, and it is one of the best takes on the Final Fantasy character that we’ve ever seen. She perfectly mimicked the heroine’s flowing braided hair.

The Tokyo-based artist teamed up with photographer ‘lukecraigphoto’, who captured her recreating the flower girl’s iconic pose from the game. The gorgeous backdrop of sakura flowers ties the whole thing together.

Sophie posted photos of the cosplay on Instagram, and in another shot gave a full view of just how faithful her costume is to the game. The outfit she wore was handmade by ‘fmanime’.

The artist really nailed Aerith’s unique fashion style – from her patterned pink dress, to her signature short red jacket. She even included the brown belts that wrap around the sleeves.

Peachmilky also recorded a video of her in character that went viral. Clasping a flower, she turns to the camera as Aerith’s theme song plays. At the time of writing, the clip has over 16.5k views.

The beloved RPG originally made its debut in 1997 on the PlayStation. After decades of waiting, fans can finally get their hands on the reimagining, as it’s now available on PS4.

Currently, there has been no official announcement of it coming to other platforms, but a recent trailer hints at a potential PC release. The Remake will come out in multiple parts, as this is the first chapter of the epic saga.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
