A fan of Nier Automata had such an impressive take on one of the game’s bosses in the form of the opera singer Beauvoir that the cosplay ended up going viral.

Cosplayer Mokunachoi decided to create an outfit design based on the opera singer boss found in the Abandoned Amusement Park portion of the game.

The boss is a giant robot known as Simone, or Beauvoir in some regions, named after Simone de Beauvoir, a French writer and intellectual who lived during the 1900s.

The impressive cosplay took quite some time to make, with photos of its early stages dating back to 2019, when she began work on the dress, helmet, and body.

When it was all said and done, Mokunachoi finished crafting the outfit and the result was something to behold – a truly marvelous display of what true dedication to the art of cosplay can produce.

Mokunachoi was able to perfectly nail Beauvoir’s look, as much as she was able to, at least, without turning into the goliath-class machine lifeform itself.

The cosplay is packed with little details such as the miniature androids draped around her body and the helmet. When positioned side-by-side with the game model, it’s hard to spot a single area where the cosplay differs from the source material.

A video of the cosplay, which included a dance to the music from the game went viral after it was posted to Twitter, racking up over 800,000 views and nearly a 100,000 likes in just two days.

“Thank you guys for the overwhelming support!” the cosplayer replied in the comments. “I’m so happy to see a lot of Nier fans out there!”

Given the work put into this outfit, there’s no telling what other cosplays Mokunachoi could have up her sleeve in the future, but we have a sneaking suspicion that it’ll turn out fantastic.

If this Beauvoir outfit is any indication, then she could be one of the next up-and-coming cosplayers to keep an eye on.

A Pokemon cosplayer went viral after sharing an incredible transformation into the popular Sword & Shield character, Marnie. The talented artist brought the Gen VIII rival to life with an incredibly detailed outfit.

Pokemon Sword & Shield made its debut in 2019, and brought the beloved RPG into its eighth generation. The Nintendo Switch title also introduced players to the Galar region for the very first time – a new area loosely based on the United Kingdom.

Pokemon cosplayer shares perfect take on Marnie

In the Gen VIII release, players enter the Galar League after Champion Leon endorses them. Throughout their journey, however, they are challenged by a rival trainer named Marnie from the town of Spikemuth.

Cosplayer ‘mery_nyan‘ shared her take on the Pokemon heroine on Instagram, and wowed with the insanely accurate portrayal. Photographer ‘irenekuroi‘ captured the artist posing as the Trainer in her signature outfit.

Mery absolutely nailed the character’s punk aesthetic, mirroring her iconic leather jacket and black choker. Her costume is full of details, such as the giant metallic buttons and the silver symbol that hangs from her necklace.

In another shot, the cosplayer re-created a popular pose from the game as she holds a Pokeball in her left hand. She also included Marnie’s signature red backpack, which she sports throughout the game.

Mery’s take on the eighth generation character is one of the best we’ve seen. In another adorable picture, the artist poses as the rival as she sits next to a Pikachu plushie.

Despite only releasing at the end of 2019, Sword & Shield has already become the third highest-selling title in the series. At its current rate, it could even overtake Gold & Silver for second place.

Fans of the Galar region have a lot to be excited for in 2020, as the RPG is getting its second major DLC, The Crown Tundra, on October 22nd. The add-on will bring Legendary Pokemon from past entries into the Gen VIII game for the first time.
