One avid Destiny fan has brought Eris Morn to life in an exceptionally unique way by reimagining the legendary Guardian as a Titan.

While Eris Morn may have led her fireteam into the depths of the Moon to face Crota long before the events of The Dark Below, she is by no means a Titan. 

This uniquely twisted cosplay however, showcases just how the former Bladedancer could look as a menacing Titan instead and the results are astounding. 

Bungie - Destiny 2Eris Morn was the focal point of the latest Destiny 2 expansion, Shadowkeep.

From the bright shimmer of her Hive eyes to the black substance that flows from beneath the material, every minuscule detail has been taken into consideration.

The Titan armor features the enormous shoulder pads  the class has become known for, as well as numerous bright spikes emerging from the elbows and forearms.

A beefy Exotic Machine Gun, the Thunderlord, is also on display as the Eris Morn Titan is shown wielding one of the most devastating arc weapons in known history.

Not the only Destiny-themed cosplay that the creator has focused his efforts on, a plethora of marquee Exotic weapons have also been designed from scratch.

From a devilish looking Bad Juju to a Year-One Red Death and even a Touch of Malice to boot, there’s no denying that this arsenal of rare weaponry could come in handy for all sorts of Destiny costumes.

Additionally, various other forms of armor have been designed so that the creator can personify numerous characters from the franchise. Uldren Sov is one particular figure that the cosplayer embodies on occasion, donning the typical blue facepaint to mimick the Awoken race.

While Eris Morn is dedicated to fending off threats that emerge from the Moon, there’s no denying that it would be an extraordinary sight to see the legendary character in heated battle like the old times. 

Destiny just launched on the brand new Google Stadia so fans will be able to access the title in more ways than ever before, but is the new platform any good? Here’s our review roundup

A Neon Genesis Evangelion cosplayer made waves on Instagram after sharing her insanely accurate take on protagonist Asuka Langley.

One of the most influential animes of all time, Neon Genesis Evangelion helped shape the Mecha genre for decades to come after its groundbreaking debut in 1995.

A talented cosplayer honored the beloved series by bringing one of its most popular characters, Asuka Langley, to life with her mind-blowing recreation of the heroine.

Asuka is one of the most popular characters from the iconic Mecha anime.

Evangelion’s Asuka brought to life with incredible cosplay

The anime takes place in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo where alien beings called Angels have humanity on the brink of destruction. Characters like Asuka Langley pilot giant Mecha called Evangelion to fight back the enormous threat.

Cosplayer Esther ‘keikocosplay’ transformed into the heroine on Instagram, and wowed with her incredibly faithful portrayal. The artist nailed the character’s look, mirroring her flowing auburn hair that runs down her back, as well as her signature red clip accessories. 

Photographer ‘MichelTakuma’ captured Keiko posing in Langley’s red pilot bodysuit. Her depiction of her uniform is full of details, such as her black under-armor with circuits, and the green light that runs across the top of her neckline.

In another picture taken by ‘bcwphoto’, the cosplayer re-created an iconic scene from the anime where Asuka is wounded in the eye. The character is often depicted wearing an eyepatch after the important scene. Keiko’s gorgeous true-to-life depiction of the moment is chilling. 

Evangelion was written and directed by renowned Japanese artist Hideaki Anno. Despite its release over two decades ago, the series is as popular as its ever been. Its influential story has had a major impact on the medium.

Those that have never seen the iconic shows are in luck as the original adaptation can be watched on Netflix right now. Its multiple spinoffs and sequels can also be caught on streaming services Funimation and Crunchyroll.
