A wide range of Overwatch cosplays have been attempted, with some looking more incredible than others. Yet, a new, insanely accurate portrayal of the hero Ashe may just be the best yet.

Overwatch fans have flooded all corners of the internet with their attempts to recreate their favorite heroes outside of the popular game.

While some members of the game’s community have taken on the challenge of stepping into the shoes of Brigitte or Bastion, others have taken another route – dressing up as the leader of the Deadlock Gang, Ashe, with a stunning likeness and complete overall look.

Blizzard EntertainmentAshe is one of the more popular heroes in Overwatch – both to play and cosplay as.

In a post to the Overwatch subreddit, user ‘Ruhira’ showed off her incredible Ashe cosplay, stating that she’s already prepared for Gamescom in August so she can mimic the popular hero among other fans.

While August and Cologne may be a good bit of time away just yet, that hasn’t stopped Ruhira donning an incredibly detailed outfit – complete with Ashe’s signature hat, vest, right-shoulder piece, and gloves – even if her trusty ‘Viper’ rifle is missing.

Compliments pour in from Overwatch fans

Other posters were wowed by the detailing and effort put into the costume, with Ruhira’s hairstyle completing the overall look of the hero.

One user even challenged Ruhira to call out Ashe’s signature “Bob, do something!” line during her trip to Gamescom. Yet, the original poster was already a step ahead of them, replying: “I promised myself to shout it if I see a Bob,” with multiple laughing face emojis attached.

Other Ashe cosplays

While it’s not the first, and unlikely to be the last, Ashe cosplay, the costume is totally brilliant in its own right – even if it’s missing the trusty B.O.B sidekick. 

Other cosplayers, like Juli ‘Denialism Cosplay’, have modeled themselves on the character in the past – adding a bit more of a risque flavor to their cosplaying attempts.

Yet, there’s nothing better than a simple recreation of Ashe.

A skilled Instagram cosplayer has recreated one of My Hero Academia’s primary antagonists, Himiko Toga, in extraordinary detail, bringing her villain attire to life with their amazing look.

The anime My Hero Academia was released in 2016, and has since then scooped up an enormous fan base of people who adore the show’s perfect blend of action and interesting characters.

Each character has a super power called a ‘Quirk,’ and this ability  is unique to each person, and offers them a range of boosts and characteristics that help show off their individuality.

That goes for both protagonists and antagonists, and one of the primary villains, Himiko Toga, has ended up becoming somewhat of a fan-favorite for her sadistic personality with its own unique charms.

Himiko Toga is a dangerous villain in My Hero Academia, despite her innocent look.

When in her usual form, Toga sports a baggy school uniform look, which many cosplayers have done an extraordinary job of recreating. But the character’s villain uniform can be harder to pull off and maintain Toga’s confidence, with clunky machinery fixed around her neck.

But cosplayer layvendercos has done a fantastic job of donning the iconic Toga look, and certainly looks as though they could play the role in a live-action version of the show.

Reminiscent of Toga’s school attire, this cosplayer wears knee length marl gray socks with some brown leather brogues, their legs dangling from their seat in one image as part of the character’s persona.

This is paired with a black skirt, and Toga’s token cream-colored jumper, which looks oversized as part of the original look, giving a slightly cute appearance.

However, this cute school look is directly contrasted with Toga’s villain attire. Thick canisters are hung from their neck, along with the classic black smile mask. Fastened to their legs and waist are green knife boxes, with one knife clasped firmly in their hand.

Their blonde hair is styled to match Toga’s voluminous space buns, with chunky bangs falling either side of their face to frame it, and perfectly bringing the look together.

Layvendercos certainly did an incredible job as Himiko Toga, and will have their followers excited to see what may but up next for the cosplayer.
