Creating armor as impressive as Brigitte’s in Overwatch is no doubt easier in digital format than real life, but this cosplayer has absolutely nailed the look. 

Blizzard Entertainment’s online multiplayer game has built up one of the most creative communities in recent times, with a number of impressive hero concepts, sketches and more being shared online and having gone viral.

While there’s always a plethora of different outfits and immaculate creations posted to the Overwatch subreddit, sometimes fans will also stumble across some amazing cosplays scrolling through their Instagram timelines as well – especially when users like Rita Tavares are posting.

Blizzard EntertainmentBrigitte is one of the game’s most popular support heroes.

The up and coming Portuguese cosplayer shared a number of images to her profile over the festive period, in different phases. These phases included the creation, eventually wearing the cosplay and also posing just like Brigitte as well.

For those who aren’t aware, Brigitte is just one of many support heroes included in Overwatch and is well-known for her strong armor, making her a useful addition to anybody’s team.

This cosplay design has received thousands of likes across a number of posts on Instagram already, with numerous Overwatch fans chiming in with compliments. As seen below, the attention to detail for the armor, hairstyle, and of course the huge Barrier Shield recreation truly sets this apart.

Happy 2020 ? I wanted to start this year showing you all one of the experiments I did with @kerubyn_cos, mixing Brigitte's armor version with the cinematic one! I hope you guys like it ? Thank you so much @kerubyn_cos for the photo and the ideas behind it ? . . . . . #overwatch2 #overwatchcosplayer #overwatch #overwatchbrigitte #overwatchbrigittelindholm #overwatchbrigittecosplay #overwatchcosplay #armorcosplay #cosplay #cosplaygirl #cos #cosplayersofinstagram #cosplayer #cosplayphotography #cosplayphotoshoot #cosplaymodel #cosplayportugal #cosplayphoto #cosplayofinstagram #cosplayersofig #brigittelindholm #brigittelin #brigitteoverwatch #brigittelindholmcosplay #brigitteoverwatchcosplay #brigittelindholmoverwatch #armorcosplay #cosplayarmor

Here she can be seen creating the armor herself, or posing as such, but a few days earlier the cosplayer also revealed what the whole outfit looked like when put together.

“I just finished the shield and wanted to show you guys pics with it as soon as possible,” Tavares posted on December 23, after collaborating with another cosplayer to bring the look to life. “Special thanks to @kerubyn_cos for all the hard work yesterday.”

This is undoubtedly one of the most accurate Brigitte cosplays that were produced in 2019, but it’s not a standalone recreation of the character.

There have been plenty of Overwatch fans trying to play the role of their favorite hero, including one that made an astonishing Brigitte shield for themselves, and we’re sure there will be much more like it doing the rounds on the internet in the future.


Apex Legends cosplayer plunders loot on Olympus as gunslinger Loba

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
