Borderlands fans are some of the most loyal when it comes to fandoms, and bringing their favorite characters to life through cosplay can often be no easy feat. For fans of Tyreen Calypso, one cosplayer went above and beyond to deliver the third installment’s antagonist into the real world.

Posting on Reddit, cosplayer mangamsy uploaded a photo of her amazing Calypso costume, which was taken back in September 2019 at Elfia, a fantasy costume event that takes place in the Netherlands.

The outfit itself and all its intricacies are done quite well to capture the wear and tear of the God Queen’s attire. The cosplay nails certain touches such as rips in just the right parts of the clothing, how one glove is a different color than the other, and all other fine details that any major Borderlands fan would pick up on.

What makes it so awesome is in the photo, the getup maintains a lot of Borderlands’ cell-shaded charm.

Moving onto Calypso’s physical appearance, mangamsy made sure to decorate her left arm with a blue tattoo, colored her hair, and styled it. Meanwhile, the makeup on her face was done in such a way to mimic cell-shading, which looks eerie yet cool.

According to mangamsy, the editing and photo were done by EOS Andy, a German-based cosplay photographer. He put a lot of work and effort into making the outfit match the spirit of the game.

Pulling this look off takes a lot of effort.

In Borderlands 3, Tyreen Calypso is the game’s antagonist. She and her brother Troy are leaders of the Children of the Vault faction. She is the daughter of Typhon DeLeon, the first vault hunter.

Considering how well this worked out, hopefully, mangamsy and EOS Andy work together more in the future to bring even more Borderlands characters to life at conventions or special events such as Elfia.

Apex Legends cosplayer takes Horizon outfit to new heights

An Apex Legends cosplayer has stunned fans of Respawn’s BR by bringing Horizon to life, ensuring the Season 7 legend has never looked so real. 

The Apex Legends community has an incredible connection with Respawn’s source material, regularly sharing artwork, videos and cosplays inspired by the world and characters.

Horizon cosplays are obviously still fairly new, given that the Scottish legend was only added with Season 7. The Gravitational Manipulator has brought new levels of verticality to the Olympus map, thanks to her Gravity Lift, Spacewalk and Black Hole abilities.

As far as aesthetics go, Horizon is known for her spacesuit theme. Her iconic ginger hair protrudes out the top of her suit. It’s an awesome look, simultaneously cool and terrifying to see coming towards you in-game.

Horizon’s abilities give incredible movement options.

One cosplayer, though, took on the challenge and, with some incredible skill, came out looking exactly like the legend herself.

Sosenka (@itlookslikekilled on Instagram) shared her Horizon look on December 4, stunning her followers and the Apex community alike. She has previously shared a Loba cosplay, but many agreed that her Horizon look was even more impressive.

The white suit is complete to perfection, with the goggles and arm bands even down to a tee. At the time of writing, it sits at just shy of 9,000 likes.

The look was so good that it even drew the attention of Elle Newlands – the voice actress behind the Season 7 legend.

She said: “I stan, you stan, we all stan for the #Horizon Cosplay Queen!” 

Horizon, despite being fairly new to the game, has taken well to the Olympus map, currently sitting in our A-Tier in our legend rankings. Her pick rates are fairly high, and abilities incredibly useful. Cosplays as good as this only make us want to use her more.
