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.

A Pokemon cosplayer transformed into Sword & Shield’s Sonia with an incredible costume. The artist’s insanely accurate take on the Gen VIII professor is the perfect way to celebrate the game’s new DLC, The Crown Tundra.

The Pokemon franchise was ushered into its eighth generation with the debut of Sword & Shield on the Nintendo Switch in 2019. The beloved RPG whisked players away to the Galar region, which is largely based on locations in the U.K.

One of the new characters introduced to the series was Sonia. To celebrate the beloved red-haired professor, an insanely skilled cosplayer shared her perfect take on the heroine on Instagram that will leave fans in awe.

Pokemon cosplayer becomes real life Sonia

At the start of the Gen 8 RPG, players are initially introduced to Magnolia as the new series’ professor. However throughout your journey, her granddaughter Sonia makes discoveries about Galar and eventually dawns the coat herself.

Bringing the popular Pokemon heroine to life, cosplayer ‘destinywings_’ shared her stunning costume on social media. The artist’s incredibly accurate re-creation looks so much like the character, it’s almost as if she has jumped out of the screen.

Photographer ‘marvelvongola’ captured Destiny as she posed as the professor studying nature. The outside shot really captures the feel of Galar, making this one of the most realistic cosplay takes we’ve seen so far from the Switch game.

Destinywings absolutely nailed Sonia’s quirky style, perfectly capturing her large beige coat, and the teal shirt she wears underneath. She also accurately mirrored the heroine’s braided red hair, including the heart-shaped decorations strung throughout her locks.

In another shot posted to Instagram, the artist gave viewers an closeup view of how she faithfully pulled off the Gen VIII character’s look. In the picture, she gets ready to capture a wild Pokemon while holding a Pokeball in her hand.

Despite only releasing at the end of 2019, Sword & Shield has already become the third highest-selling title in the Nintendo franchise. Proof that Pokemon has never been more popular.

Fans of the Galar region have a lot to be excited for as the game’s second DLC, The Crown Tundra, is out right now. The add-on expands the map, and the beloved Professor Sonia also makes a return.
