Life is Strange follows Max Caulfield after she returns to her hometown of Arcadia Bay. The lead protagonist rekindles her relationship with best friend Chloe after discovering that she has the ability to rewind time.

Bringing the character to life, cosplayer Molza ‘molzenna‘ shared her faithful depiction of the heroine on Instagram. Photographer ‘dorian_photoart‘ captured the artist dressed up in Max’s signature pink shirt and gray hoodie.

Molzenna mirrors a scene from the game where the heroine uses her antique camera to take photos for school. The cosplayer nailed Caulfield’s look, accurately depicting her short brown bob haircut and the light freckles on her face.
