Despite being a few years out from a major release in the popular space opera series, Mass Effect fans are still creating some extraordinary costumes around their favorite characters and this might be the most authentic yet.

Having just passed the annual N7 Day celebrations on November 7, with former Game Director Casey Hudson releasing brand new concept art, Mass Effect fans have been rekindling their love for the wondrous series.

A creative cosplaying duo, Vincent & Evelyn Blackwater have long been iterating on their cosplay of Quarian sweetheart Tali’Zorah nar Rayya.

It was only recently, however, that they finalized the costume and took to the streets for an official photo-shoot.

Bioware - Mass EffectTali is one of the few central companions that accompanies Commander Shepard throughout all three Mass Effect titles.

From the uncompromising detail in the pattern design to the perfect gleam of the reflective helmet, every little detail has been taken into account and the results are remarkable.

Even the most minor considerations such as the unique feet of the Quarian race to the hood of the costume that covers her helmet, have all been fleshed out with this impressive design. 

Perhaps the only thing missing is a weapon to accompany her in battle or an expertly crafted recreation of her numerous Machinist abilities.

Impressive costume design is one thing in and of itself, however the effort in post-production cannot be dismissed. The vibrant colors pop out of the screen and masterfully breathe life into the stunning cosplay.

Through a creative angling and lighting effects, the pictures closely resemble proper concept art, with the real-world costume appearing nearly indistinguishable from the in-game counterpart.

As Reddit user ‘simianne’ expressed, “I didn’t even realize it wasn’t fan-art until I read the title. She looks phenomenal!”

While there’s no telling when a new Mass Effect title might be released, nor when the potential game would take place, it’s always exciting to speculate and Casey Hudson recently opened the floodgates for new conversations.

Certainly not the only costumes of these creative cosplayers, you can follow their efforts and enjoy the rest of their authentic designs through their personal Instagram account.

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.

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, and the high-quality photography makes it even better.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has already set the world on fire. But Eva’s cosplay will undoubtedly add to the excitement.
