A talented Life is Strange cosplayer has done a remarkable job of bringing the game’s much loved protagonist Max Caulfield to life, in a series of shots that capture the essence of the character perfectly.

Dontnod’s Life is Strange was a hit when it released back in 2015, and has certainly kept hold of its loyal following to this day.

The game follows the story of an 18-year-old photography student named Max Caulfield, who discovers she has the ability to rewind time with her mind, bringing her childhood best-friend along for the ride to find out the secrets of Arcadia Bay, and rekindle their relationship.

The game was a huge hit for its compelling plot and characters.

While a second game was made that focused on a new set of captivating characters, none have stayed in people’s hearts longer than Max and Chloe, remaining cherished characters even five years after the release of the first game.

Instagram cosplayer alexya.cos has recreated her take on Max, and has incorporated a huge amount of detail into the atmospheric shot.

The wall behind her is full of significant stills from the game, placed on white paper to emulate the look of a polaroid picture, just like Max’s camera in the game.

In the gaps are adorable blue origami butterflies, the symbolic emblem of the butterfly effect in the game, along with graffiti like “Chloe was here.”

The cosplay itself is incredibly accurate too, short brown locks frame her face with light freckles dotted on her cheeks. She sports Max’s baby pink Jane Doe tee with a simple hoodie and jeans, a perfect recreation of Max’s simple, but now iconic college look.

Over the top of the pictures it reads “this action will have consequences” alongside the butterfly logo, a phrase players will know all too well.

Overall, alexya.cos did an incredible job at innovating on Max’s simple look, and her incorporation of little details from the original game certainly make for an interesting cosplay for Life is Strange fans.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
