Overwatch cosplayer pulls off perfect Devi Symmetra look

An Overwatch cosplayer’s take on Symmetra’s Devi Legendary skin has blown fans away, and for good reason since it looks absolutely stunning.

As one of the game’s original heroes, Overwatch players seem to either love Sym or love to hate her, with very little in between.

She’s one of the few heroes that’s seen a complete overhaul to her kit and ultimate, but that hasn’t made her any less popular to cosplay, and Daisy Cosplay’s take on the hero is one of the best we’ve seen yet.

Daisy managed to perfectly capture the look of Symmetra’s popular Devi skin.

The defining feature of this, and every good Devi cosplay, is the blue skin, which looks so natural that we’re not sure if it was done with paint or a filter in Photoshop. Either way though, it certainly looks amazing.

Devi is probably one of Symmetra’s most intricate skins, detail wise, but Daisy didn’t seem to miss a beat (or bead, in this case), and even included the skulls that hang from her belt.

Even the Devi version of Symmetra’s Beam Projector was included and like the rest of the outfit, the details seem to be spot on.

I love to make big builds but it takes money and time, so I can only do very few of them! But now I’ve started working on a NEW BIG PROJECT! I can’t talk about it now, but I’m really having fun crafting it and I can’t wait to share some WiP with you (if I will have permission haha) ✨ ~ ~ ?

Throw in some special beam effects to make things look even better, and this cosplay looks about as close to an IRL Symmetra that can get, next to the voice actor herself playing the character.

Along with the photos, Daisy also said she “missed the old Sym” referring to the hero before her rework. This might be a controversial opinion to some, but we can all agree that her Devi cosplay knocks it out of the park.

Welcome to Daisy’s reality.

Daisy currently has over 50,000 followers on Instagram and is putting out new cosplays all the time.

If what she has coming next is anywhere near as good as Devi Symmetra, we can’t wait to see it and surely a lot of other Overwatch fans will be thinking the same, too.

League cosplayer comes out from the shadows as amazing Akali

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.
