A remarkably talented Overwatch cosplayer has done an excellent job of recreating the game’s favorite gunslinger Ashe, looking as stunningly powerful as the popular character.

Overwatch’s broad cast of characters with detailed backstories have captured the attention of fans across the globe. Each character has a unique personality with an equally individual aesthetic to go along with it, and this has proven to be excellent inspiration for many cosplayers.

Ashe is one character who has inspired some fantastic costume recreations. The leader of the Deadlock Gang is a gunslinger who utilizes her sharp shot to deal damage to the opposing team, and certainly serves as a formidable foe.

Her western-biker aesthetic has an effortless charm, though recreating it in real-life is certainly a huge feat, with some intricate aspects of the outfit that are difficult to match to the original. However cosplayer Lexi Pro did an insanely good job of putting herself in Ashe’s shoes – literally.

Her knee-high boots are laced up with metallic string, a dazzling contrast to the dark black of the shoes. Her brown leather pants are topped with gold plates that add to the western style and have her looking ready for battle.

Her fitted white shirt and red tie are topped with a sleeveless leather jacket for that cool biker look, but the mechanical aspect is continued with the shoulder brace on one arm, looking just like Ashe’s original outfit.

Her silver hair is styled sleekly with a stunning flick at the end, which immaculately contracts her bright red lips and matching contacts. She even has Ashe’s mole dotted in the exact same place by her lip.

And of course to complete the look, Lexi Pro holds the gunslinger’s classic rifle, the Viper, in her hands. The gun is the finishing touch, and makes this cosplayer look exactly like Ashe does in the game.

This stunning recreation of one of the game’s popular characters has certainly been a resounding success, and has thoroughly impressed Overwatch fans.

Demon Slayer cosplayer transforms into beautiful butterfly Shinobu Kocho

Shinobu Kocho might look innocent from afar, but if you’re a demon and you get too close, you’ll see the deadly side of the butterfly. She’s a popular Demon Slayer character to cosplay, but ‘aka_purin’ has truly put together one of the most beautiful designs yet.

Shinobu Kocho is a fan-favorite in Demon Slayer, and it’s easy to see why. Not only does the Demon Corps member possess incredible powers to heal friends and harm demons, but she is one of the most beautiful characters in the show.

Her personality is a difficult one to channel though. While she’s seemingly innocent on the outside, deep inside of her, there’s a rebellious rage to get revenge.

It’s one thing to make a cosplay, put it on, and take a picture. It’s another thing to really channel what a character is all about, and that’s what sets ‘aka_purin’ apart from the other Shinobu cosplayers.

Sharing the intricate design on her Twitter, the Polish cosplayer spared no expense and left no stone unturned in her flawless design. Her hair and makeup is perfect, even getting the butterflies pinned.

She also created her special katana, which is based on an insect’s “stinger” more than a blade itself. The tattered, battle-worn hilt and blade is a wonderful addition to the cosplay that really ties it all together.

That’s the special thing about purin’s cosplay too. Every element just ties everything together. While even just one of these things would be pretty special in a cosplay, being able to jam it all in one photo is the most beautiful thing of all.

The Shinobu design might be her latest, but she’s unsure on what her next project will be. “I feel like I’m having an art block lately. I just have so many ideas and costumes to shoot but I just can’t put myself up for it,” she admitted on her Instagram.

No matter what it is though, we bet Purin will knock our socks off.
