A number of cosplayers have tried their hand at capturing Overwatch sharpshooter Ashe in all her accurate glory, though this rendition from Russian model ‘nimfiell’ might be the most impressive to date.

Overwatch cosplayers are often looking to one-up each other with next-level creations. Some decide to take on unique skins while others go the extra mile and cosplay heroes you’d never expect to see in real life.

While these are a surefire way to stand out from the pack, sometimes sticking to the basics is a great way to go as well. Mastering the original Ashe design, Russian cosplayer nimfiel has taken every little detail into account.

From the costume itself down to the finer framework on her ‘Viper’ weapon, no stone has been left unturned with this exceptional Ashe cosplay.

Starting out with her trademark cowboy hat, this cosplayer hasn’t just purchased any ordinary gear. This custom-made fit features the exact same emblem seen on Ashe’s in-game model. The same level of detail carries down all the way to her boots.

From the tiniest skull and crossbones on her belt to the golden zippers on her top, this version of Ashe looks ripped right from Overwatch.

Multiple photoshoots with all different poses from every angle truly showcase the talented design. No element seems to have been quickly tacked on as the costume has come together with immense detail.

Even down to her makeup, nimfiel has considered everything. Multiple photoshoots feature her in black eyeliner to complement a pale effect across the board. Truly capturing the flair of Ashe in-game.

Perhaps the only thing that could make this cosplay even better is a special photoshoot with trusty Omnic companion B.O.B. Given the sheer size of her partner, however, that would be a huge undertaking.

Ashe isn’t the only popular character nimfiel has cosplayed over the years. From League of Legends icons to anime heroes and plenty more, be sure to check them all out through her official Instagram account.

Avatar: The Last Airbender fans love Toph for her tomboyish vibe despite being raised like a princess, but a brilliant cosplayer managed to capture her elegant side by creating a refined version of her usual outfit.

The heroes in Avatar: The Last Airbender all bring something unique to the table. However, Toph is particularly remarkable because she managed to become an earth-bending master despite being blind since birth.

Initially, she wanted to prove to her parents that blindness didn’t make her weak. But she became one of the most powerful characters in the show and a valuable Team Avatar member.

Toph Beifong turned her back on a sheltered childhood to become a powerful earth-bender.

Toph is a popular choice among cosplayers too. But while we’ve seen everything from her traditional get-up to an elegant dress she once wore, it’s hard to find one more unique than Emma J.I.Q Rubini’s Art Nouveau Toph.

“You see nothing once, and you’ve seen it a thousand times,” she said, referring to a quote. “Y’all remember when we used to have cons? I’m so happy I went to Katsucon this year since it ended up being the only one I went to.”

“Here’s the cosplay I made for it,” she added. “Art Nouveau Toph! I am incredibly proud of the work I put into it, and I’m happy I got to wear it to such a pretty con! One day maybe I’ll wear it again.”

Emma managed to capture all the crucial elements of Toph’s everyday outfit. It includes the green and beige garments, the hairstyle tucked under a headband with a flower, and of course, contact lenses to match her eyes.

However, she’s added some exotic details in line with a style known as Art Nouveau. It combines elegantly woven tapestries with encrusted jewels and other bits and pieces to add some class.

Cosplayers and their fans know how much time and effort it takes to re-create an outfit faithfully. However, it takes creativity, talent, and courage to add your flair. Emma nailed it, and the thousands of likes she’s getting are a testament to that.
