We’ve seen our fair share of 2B cosplays from Nier: Automata, but this one might take the cake as the best we’ve seen.
Nier: Automata released back in 2017 and quickly became a fan-favorite title thanks to its strong storyline, excellent gameplay, fleshed-out characters.
Even though we’re a couple of years out now from its initial release, we’re still seeing unique spins on the main character 2B in the form of some impressive looking cosplays.
The character has a very elaborate design to her that is definitely pretty hard to nail, so it’s impressive any time we see it happen.
Cosplayer LadaLyumos shared her spin on the main character and it’s so spot-on that you might actually be confused about whether it’s a screenshot from the game or not.
2B’s floating sword even makes an appearance in the cosplay so at first glance we don’t blame you for having to do a double or even triple-take.
The filter on the image to go along with the smoke around her really helps sell that it’s a scene from the game itself. However, we can confirm that this is actually LadaLyumos in the outfit and it’s in fact not a video game scene.
For those who are hungry for more from this photoshoot, Lyumos confirmed there will be more images to come. It will definitely be interesting to see what other shots look like and even better if we can get some behind-the-scenes contents.
On her Instagram page, she posted another look at the cosplay and it’s quite possible this one is better than the first. The second image puts the whole outfit on display and once again shows the floating sword, making it look like it’s another scene directly out of the video game.
It’s not exactly clear how she’s able to pull it off, but we’re impressed with it nonetheless.

Of course, 2B isn’t the only character she cosplays and if you look through her Instagram, you’ll see a lot more there.
Triss Merigold from The Witcher series is a cosplay she’s tried many times before and it’s almost as impressive as her 2B one.
