Monster Hunter World features an abundance of unique weapon types, upgradeable variants, and armor sets to boot. This remarkable cosplay brings to life a full-scale rendition of the Jawblade weapon as well as a full set of Origin Armor and the final combination is spectacular. 

Certainly not a simple franchise to create any form of cosplay around, Monster Hunter has been known for its intricate armor pieces and countless weapon variations since the very first release on the PlayStation 2 in 2004.

The latest entry in the popular franchise, Monster Hunter: World features 14 weapon types and dozens of possible creations within each category. From the Insect Glaive to the Longsword, customization is key to fine-tuning your gameplay. 

Having settled on a specific favorite, this impressive cosplayer honed her craft around the Jawblade and created a complete set of Origin Armor to accompany it. Suffice to say, the authenticity on display is staggering.

Capcom - Monster Hunter: WorldMonster Hunter: World launched in January of 2018 across the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

In development for more than half a year, ‘essi.cosplay’ left no stone unturned in recreating this tremendous Monster Hunter World costume.

Boasting an enormous Jawblade that matches her height, the bone-based weapon is detailed to the highest caliber with various scratch markings and craters scattered across the surface. Every intricacy of the hulking weapon has been effectively realized and although the equipment is light enough to carry around comfortably, it certainly looks like it would pack a punch.

While it might not be the most agile choice for combat, there’s no denying that the massive build will stand out at any gaming convention down the line.

Alongside the impressive weapon is a full Origin Armor set that combines each and every minuscule component into one fully fleshed-out costume.

From vambraces to authentic Origin greaves and even appropriate headgear, the pre-order bonus armor set is realized with tremendous accuracy.

The cosplayer even built her very own Scoutfly Lantern from scratch so that she can efficiently track her next monster with ease.

With one set now entirely realized, it’ll be fascinating to see which Monster Hunter equipment is crafted next. Perhaps a Master Rank weapon will be in the cards now that the Iceborne expansion is out in the wild.

Having also brought popular characters such as Brigitte Lindholm from Overwatch to life, you can view a wide array of ‘essi.cosplay’ creations through her Instagram page here.

League of Legends cosplayer serenades the crowd as stunning K/DA Seraphine

Seraphine has been a hit in the League of Legends fandom, serenading millions as part of K/DA, as well as a solo artist. Few have managed to capture the Zaun and Piltovan artist’s essence as well as Brazilian cosplayer ‘kitsuneraposa’.

Seraphine might be one of the newest additions to League of Legends, but the popstar has already made it big. The support / mid laner has been a hit with fans, thanks to her @seradotwav Twitter account and K/DA collaboration on release.

Her story is the ultimate rags to riches one, and many fans have resonated with that. It also helps that she makes some pretty good music too.

Seraphine has become an iconic part of the Riot musical universe.

It’s made her a fan-favorite from well before she was even released, with many lining up to do casual cosplays of the League star. However, this one of her K/DA skin by ‘kitsuneraposa’ is one of the most decked out ones we’ve seen yet.

Raposa took on Seraphine’s ALL OUT design ⁠— stage and all ⁠— in their cosplay. No expense was spared, and it shows. From the wig all the way down to the platform, everything is absolutely picture perfect.

Raposa was actually brought on by Riot Brazil to do the cosplay, and said her experience was just like Seraphine’s growth.

“Everything worked out in the end and the result was stunning. I ended up identifying myself as [Seraphine], and like her, I lived the dream of being part of K/DA for a day,” they said on Instagram.

While Raposa is more known for her Ahri cosplays in the community ⁠— after all, Kitsune is in her name ⁠— her Seraphine one is easily her best work yet.

From the stunning metallic dress, to the crystal powered stage and microphone, every detail was meticulously combed over.

Her cosplay has won the world over, much like Seraphine herself did, and it’s for good reason. It’ll be hard to top this one for some time, and it’ll be one many cosplayers come back to so they too can transform into the Piltovan star.
