Overwatch cosplayer hits the beach as incredible female lifeguard McCree

An Overwatch fan took one of McCree’s most popular skins and added her own touch in what is one of the most unique cosplays the game has had to offer.

McCree’s Lifeguard skin is already extremely popular, with the ripped cowboy now wearing a straw hat, swim trunks, a towel for a poncho, flair gun and flipflops in place of his standard skin attire and weapon.

Cosplayer ‘Nowigetaholiday’ decided to flip the beloved skin on its head with a gender-based twist – and the result is fantastic.

Going full-on Baywatch, the cosplayer opted for a one-piece, red lifeguard swimsuit as a feminine alternative to McCree’s shirtless ensemble.

However, the rest of her cosplay is nearly identical to the skin it’s based on.

Nowigetaholiday’s take included his sandals, flair gun, hat and towel. She even went out of her way to incorporate two key elements that really make the skin stand out.

First, the belt buckle that normally reads “BAMF” (bada** motherf**ker) has been replaced with “SAMF.” It’s a nice little touch, but keeps the cosplay authentic.

Next, and this is probably the impressive part of the outfit, the robotic arm. While McCree is one of the least cybernetic heroes in Overwatch, his left arm is completely robotic.

It’s unclear if whoever designed McCree was a big fan of Star Wars and robotic arms, but the cosplay perfectly recreated the piece, completing the ensemble.

This isn’t the first special skin cosplay that Nowigetaholiday has done, either; she’s also cosplayed as Magician Symmetra, Pirate Ana and Los Muertos Sombra.

Fans looking to get their hands on the McCree Lifeguard skin themselves can do so as part of the Anniversary event, but if you miss out, you’ll be able to try your luck again once the Summer Games kicks off a few months later.

Attack on Titan cosplayer hacks and slashes into battle as Eren Yeager

Attack on Titan’s Eren Yeager is a popular choice among cosplayers, but a recent effort re-created the character perfectly, and the pictures have gone viral. 

Attack on Titan is one of the darkest and strangest mainstream animes in recent times. However, that hasn’t stopped it from becoming an incredibly popular smash-hit. If anything, it’s probably the reason why.

Nobody ever thought they’d be into a story about human soldiers locked into a battle with over-sized human-looking monsters called Titans who eat people.

Yet, here we all are, and we’re hooked. 

Attack on Titan has many interesting characters, but it revolves around Eren Yeager, the main protagonist. He started as an impulsive and hardheaded peasant with a burning despite to help eliminate Titans.

But he quickly grew into a capable member of the Scout Regiment and even stumbled upon a special power of his own. For that reason, he’s become a fan-favorite among fans and cosplayers alike.

A cosplayer named Noah Lance decided to step into Eren Yeager’s boots. They’re massive ones to fill, but he did such a great job, the photos have gone viral. The pictures have already generated almost 10,000 likes on Instagram.

“I hate people when they’re not polite,” he said, in reference to one of Eren Yeager’s quotes from the show. “If you end up on my table, then it serves you right.”

Noah’s outfit looks like the real deal. It has everything from the khaki-colored shirt, brown belt, brown straps to a replica necklace. The dual swords are the best feature, though, and they round it off nicely.

There’s also a second shot that provides a more zoomed-out view of the boots, straps, and pants. Noah’s definitely put in a lot of attention to detail, and it shows.

“And I’m hoping that you will see yourself like I see you,” he said.

Attack on Titan can be dark and grueling at times, but it still provides endless opportunities for fans and cosplayers to shine. Noah’s Eren Yeager cosplay is a testament to that.

The fourth and final series kicks off on December 7.

It marks the beginning of the end for the show, but there’s no doubt Attack on Titan fans will be in for a roller-coaster ride along the way.
