Cosplayer Mochi Chuu has stunned Overwatch fans on Instagram with a perfectly matched D.Va outfit, in a fantastically dynamic shot.

First-person-shooter Overwatch has achieved enormous popularity thanks to its vibrant aesthetic, and its diverse stock of playable characters who each have a fleshed-out backstory.

The huge range of nationalities, builds, and aesthetics of the heroes has meant an endless supply of cosplay opportunities, and a range of styles to explore and emulate through costume.

D.Va is a hugely popular character in Overwatch

One such character is D.Va, a Korean professional gamer who carried her razor-sharp computer skills forward to the operation of a state-of-the-art mech to defend her nation alongside her crew members in the MEKA unit.

Cosplayer Mochi Chuu set out to emulate D.Va’s classic colorful bodysuit, in a photoshoot with a high production feel that wowed fans of the game, and particularly those who love D.Va.

The bodysuit designed by miccostumes is perfectly form-fitting, a perfect blend of neon pink, blue and black material that is stitched together to replicate the shape of the original.

The slight vertical paneling on both the upper torso and the waist give it that slightly mechanical feel to match up with her pro mech operation, and shows the level of detail put into the base of the outfit. This detail is matched down to the logos on the white panel on her thigh.

On her head, Mochi Chuu wears D.Va’s usual pink headphones, and of course, has her iconic pink triangle markings painted on her cheeks to tie the whole image in together.

The background and composition is the icing on the cake, photographer Gardani Angelica capturing the perfect lean and shoot pose that paired with the neon pink background gives Mochi Chuu’s recreation an effortless coolness.

This isn’t the first time Mochi has recreated the glowing neon look of D.Va, having produced several cosplay images of the character prior to this one.

The incredible cosplay has now garnered over 11,000 likes, and going up fast, with people loving the perfect likeness.

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.
