Ashe looks ready to smoke the competition in this remarkable Overwatch cosplay as the DPS hero has been brought to life with a stunning attention to detail.

Overwatch cosplayers tend to focus on the most popular heroes with their designs. D.Va is often a common one, while Sombra and Tracer get their fair share of attention too. Though every once in a while, someone thinks outside of the box and creates a rare costume for their most beloved character.

Take Bastion, for instance. Most would never consider the Omnic hero as an option, though some costume creators rise to the occasion. Ashe often falls into this category. While other DPS heroes steal the spotlight, rare Ashe cosplays are able to shine through.

The latest example drops the American hero into a western setting reminiscent of Route 66. While B.O.B. might not be by her side to “do something,” this recreation of Ashe is sure to leave enemies stunned regardless.

Ukrainian cosplayer ‘le_blaaanc_cosplay’ has donned costumed of many popular characters since Overwatch first released. Though Ashe is among her latest challenges. The damage dealer is on full display with every minute detail taken into consideration. From the golden sheen on her knee pads to a holster for her dynamite, no stone was left unturned.

Ashe’s trademark silver hair is also part of the costume as this recreation came detailed from head to toe. Even her cowboy hat is adorned with an exact match of the golden emblem found in-game.

Not only that, but the cosplayer also put the effort in to make her trusty semi-automatic rifle. The Viper matches perfectly in terms of both detail and size. While one picture has Ashe lining up a shot with pinpoint precision, another has her posing with the weapon over her shoulder. Reflecting both the threat and the charm of the DPS character.

B.O.B. is nowhere to be seen in this rendition. Though perhaps the giant Omnic companion could be in the works next with the Ashe cosplay is now finalized.

Ever seen a League of Legends cosplay so good that Riot can’t help but share it with the world? Well, now you have, with Sweet Angel’s take on Akali taking League players by storm.

Akali is one of League of Legends’ most popular characters to cosplay. Whether it be her default skin, or the mega-popular K/DA variant, people love to show off as the Ionian assassin.

However, few manage to grab the eyes of Riot as much as Sweet Angel. The talented Italian cosplayer decided to take on Akali as her most recent project, and while the costume looks simple, it was anything but.

Akali is one of the most popular League champions to cosplay, but few catch the eyes of Riot.

“I thought it was a simple costume, but it required a lot more attention and time than I thought,” she told fans on her website.

It took Sweet Angel about 100 hours all up to create the Akali cosplay ⁠— and you can see every bit of hard work and time that went into it. From the handmade wig, to the dress, and even Akali’s smoke bombs, Sweet Angel didn’t miss a beat.

Everything that you see was basically handmade. Sweet Angel sewed all of the fabrics together, stitched everything up, and made it tailored not only to herself, but true to life to Akali’s design.

She even designed Akali’s signature Kana, using EVA foam so she can carry it around without too much hassle.

She added every detail to the weapon like she did the costume too, from the leather handle all the way down to the marks and blemishes on the battle-worn blade.

The cosplay is so good that even the official League of Legends account couldn’t help but react. Sweet Angel got a retweet on the cosplay from the near five million follower account, and they don’t hand those out lightly.

As for her next cosplay, Sweet Angel hasn’t revealed her plans just yet. However, she’s got a few more shoots on the way, and if they’re anything like this Akali cosplay, they’ll be worth a gander.
