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.


Naruto cosplayer awakens her Sharingan as Kakashi with female twist

Kakashi Hatake is arguably the most badass character in Naruto, but one cosplayer has copied the copy-cat ninja himself and brought him to life with a female twist.

Naruto is jam-packed with many awesome characters, each with their own in-depth background stories and motives. However, it’s hard to find one more universally loved than Kakashi Hatake.

Kakashi is first introduced as a detached and eccentric teacher who takes Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke under his wing. But it quickly becomes apparent that he is one of the strongest and smartest ninjas in the world, often described as a genius.

In terms of abilities, he’s essentially good at everything. However, the one that defines him the most is the Sharingan in his left eye socket, which was given to him by his childhood friend Obito Uchiha.

Kakashi has been able to use the Sharingan to copy nearly any technique used against him ever since. It also gives him heightened visual perception and lets him see through deception as well as predict his opponent’s moves.

Kakashi might come across as aloof, but he’s one of the strongest characters in the show.

However, it seems like Kakashi isn’t the only ninja worthy of the copy-cat title. A popular cosplayer named Nicole Winters brought him to life with a female twist. The end result is so perfect, not even the Sharingan itself would be able to see through it.

“Kakashi is BAE.. you can fight me on that,” she said, in a picture that has received almost 30,000 likes.

Nicole even got the Icha Icha Tactics book!

Naturally, her hair is slightly longer than Kakashi’s. But other than that, it looks like an exact match. 

The headband, mask, vest, gloves, and sandals couldn’t be more perfect. The outfit has an incredible amount of detail from head to toe.

If that wasn’t enough, she totally nailed his trademark pose and even included the Icha Icha Tactics book he loves to read.

“I love that you guys love my Kakashi genderbend,” she said in a second picture. “I’m so glad I decided to do another shoot with this cosplay again and bring some more life into & it’s literally one of my most comfortable cosplays too!”

Nicole’s Kakashi cosplay is one of her favorites.

The second shot provides an even better look at the Hidden Leaf Village symbol on the headband and gloves. It’s hard to tell whether or not it’s real metal. Either way, it looks like the real deal.

Nicole Winters has done a magnificent job with her Kakashi Hatake cosplay. It’s one of the best we’ve seen, which says a lot considering how popular of a character he is.
