Popular cosplayer Meg Turney hilariously hit back at criticism over her Rainbow 6 Caveira costume. The personality had the best response to a fan’s over-analyzing comment on her work.

Cosplaying isn’t just a hobby for many creators – it’s an art form in itself. Talented artists spend endless hours bringing our favorite film and game characters to life with their incredible costumes.

However, despite all the hard work, some viewers can be a little too critical about an outfit not being absolutely perfect. And when this happened to popular cosplayer Meg Turney, she had the perfect response.

Meg Turney’s perfect response to cosplay critic

On July 19, the popular cosplayer re-posted her insanely accurate 2019 costume of Rainbow Six Siege Operator ‘Caveira’ to Instagram. However, one viewer critiqued the costume for not having the exact specific gun model in the game.

“Really well done. However, you selected the wrong pistol to recreate caveira’s Lusion. It appears that you used a colt 1911, when her gun is a Beretta M92f. Apart from that, your costume is really well made,” the fan told her. Turney replied to the user and said, “oh my actual f**k it’s a costume for fun times lol.”

The exchange went viral after R6 EU League commentator ‘Geo’ tweeted out a screenshot of it, which included Turney’s response to the critique. “This comment and response on Meg Turney’s Instagram f**king killed me,” she said.

The popular cosplayer hilariously followed up Geo’s post, and explained, “I didn’t have the heart to tell him that I actually just got whatever airsoft pistol was the cheapest on Amazon and also came with a little plastic silencer lol.”

The popular cosplayer hilariously revealed the prop gun was an airsoft pistol.

After some viewers took issue with her response, the personality made a post on her social media, and clarified that she was just having “fun” with the critique, and explained that she has no issue with people critiquing her work.

“…Y’all ain’t responsible enough for me to have fun with a critique. Guys, I’ve been on the Internet for 87 damn years – I know s**t gets critiqued. As a content creator, I’ve chosen to have fun with that stuff for my own sanity – it’s not that serious,” she wrote.

The cosplayer took to social media to explain that she wasn’t actually mad with the criticism.

Various cosplayers on social media reacted to the comment, and revealed how frustrating it can be to work countless hours on a cosplay, only for someone to nitpick one specific thing. However, Turney reiterated that she was just having “fun” with her response.

Criticisms aside, the cosplay star’s take on the Rainbow 6 operator is insanely detailed. Photographer atwes‘s incredible work brings the character to life. We liked the costume so much, it was on our top 10 cosplays of 2019.


Demon Slayer cosplayer transforms into beautiful butterfly Shinobu Kocho

Shinobu Kocho might look innocent from afar, but if you’re a demon and you get too close, you’ll see the deadly side of the butterfly. She’s a popular Demon Slayer character to cosplay, but ‘aka_purin’ has truly put together one of the most beautiful designs yet.

Shinobu Kocho is a fan-favorite in Demon Slayer, and it’s easy to see why. Not only does the Demon Corps member possess incredible powers to heal friends and harm demons, but she is one of the most beautiful characters in the show.

Her personality is a difficult one to channel though. While she’s seemingly innocent on the outside, deep inside of her, there’s a rebellious rage to get revenge.

Shinobu Kocho is a dazzling and powerful Demon Slayer.

It’s one thing to make a cosplay, put it on, and take a picture. It’s another thing to really channel what a character is all about, and that’s what sets ‘aka_purin’ apart from the other Shinobu cosplayers.

Sharing the intricate design on her Twitter, the Polish cosplayer spared no expense and left no stone unturned in her flawless design. Her hair and makeup is perfect, even getting the butterflies pinned.

She also created her special katana, which is based on an insect’s “stinger” more than a blade itself. The tattered, battle-worn hilt and blade is a wonderful addition to the cosplay that really ties it all together.

That’s the special thing about purin’s cosplay too. Every element just ties everything together. While even just one of these things would be pretty special in a cosplay, being able to jam it all in one photo is the most beautiful thing of all.

The Shinobu design might be her latest, but she’s unsure on what her next project will be. “I feel like I’m having an art block lately. I just have so many ideas and costumes to shoot but I just can’t put myself up for it,” she admitted on her Instagram.

No matter what it is though, we bet Purin will knock our socks off.
