A Final Fantasy 7 cosplayer tried her luck at adding a feminine twist to the game’s antagonist Sephiroth with her own unique cosplay take.

Cosplayer Vanessa Wedge added some neat touches to the former SOLDIER’s outfit by tweaking a few parts of the character to be more feminine while still remaining true to the source material.

To begin, the most obvious change is the addition of a black bra whereas in the game, the top of his coat is open revealing his chest. Additionally, the antagonist’s belt is a bit higher up in Wedge’s version.

Aside from those modifications, the rest of the cosplay is pretty spot in. Everything from the shoulder armor, black coat and gloves, and even battle stance are nicely recreated by the cosplayer.

She even went through the trouble of adding Sephiroth’s legendary katana, Masamune, and, in several poses, Vanessa wields the weapon and even charges into battle.

Last but not least, Wedge’s white wig nails the flowing silver hair of the One-Winged Angel.

In her most recent photo, appropriately titled “touching reunion,” the cosplayer digitally inserted the character’s wing as a meteor above heads towards Earth.

This isn’t the only Final Fantasy cosplay the model has done either; Wedge’s Instagram also includes photos of her dressed as Tifa Lockhart and Aerith.

Aside from Final Fantasy, she’s also cosplayed as Street Fighter’s Chun-Li, Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, and more.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake has been extremely well-received with an average of 88 on MetaCritic from 103 critic reviews. Meanwhile, users scores average out to a solid eight out of ten.

The remake differs from the original in several ways and with multiple parts still to come for the project, there’s no telling just how the different things will shape up, potentially leading to even more unique cosplay possibilities in the future.

Hopefully, Wedge tries her luck dressing as them the same way she did with Sephiroth.

Mt. Lady loves being the center of attention in My Hero Academia, but a talented cosplayer has stolen the spotlight from her with a colossal transformation that popped off hard on social media.

Yu Takeyama, better known as Mt. Lady, isn’t one of the central characters in My Hero Academia. She isn’t even in the top ten professional hero rankings. However, she is still ranked highly, coming in at Number 23.

But what she lacks in rank, she makes up for in size. Mt. Lady’s quirk, Gigantification, allows her to become 20 meters tall. It makes her stick out like a sore thumb, which she loves since she’s obsessed with the idea of fame and money.

Still, despite her materialistic ambitions and imperfections, she’s a true hero at heart. Her strength and size have come in handy multiple times, and she’s helped saved countless lives.

If Mt. Lady existed in real life, there’s no doubt she’d spend a lot of time posing in her hero outfit on social media. However, if that was her game, she’d definitely lose to a cosplayer named Sara Mei Kasai.

Sara has a little less than a million followers on Instagram, which is insane. But her cosplays are so good, every time she posts one, the numbers keep on climbing. Now, she’s outdone herself with a phenomenal Mt. Lady cosplay, and her fans love it.

“A NEW COSPLAY? YES! IT’S MT LADY!” she wrote. “Do you prefer pic 1 or 2? I couldn’t choose.”

Sara stole the spotlight in the outfit. She captured every detail, from the purple, white, and orange skintight bodysuit with three diamond-shaped dots, to the purple gloves, mask, and horns. And let’s not forget about the blonde hair. Mt. Lady herself would be impressed.

But while fans were busy trying to decide which of the two pictures they preferred, she posted another one. It was a before-and-after shot of the transformation and provided a more zoomed out perspective.

The two posts have almost 80,000 likes between them, which is impressive. However, it seems like just another day’s work for the talented cosplayer.

Sara has set the bar high for other Mt. Lady cosplayers to follow. She deserves to be in the spotlight for making this piece look so good, and she’ll undoubtedly remain there for quite some time.
