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.


My Hero Academia cosplayer creates shockwaves as Nejire Hado

A talented My Hero Academia cosplayer has shown off her incredible take on one of U.A. High School’s ‘Big 3’, the powerful and popular Nejire Hado. 

My Hero Academia follows the story of Izuku Midoriya, a young man born without superpowers who dreams of becoming a pro hero. A chance encounter with his idol All Might leads to Deku being gifted the legendary quirk known as One For All, and with his newfound abilities enrolls at U.A. High to learn how to harness them under the tutelage of the Symbol of Peace himself.

Throughout his years at the school, Midoriya meets lots of characters who become part of his legacy there, including a run-in with third-year students Mirio Togata, Tamaki Amajiki, and Nejire Hado. These three stand alone as the most powerful students at U.A. High, and earned the nickname ‘The Big 3″ thanks to their abilities and performances.

While Amajiki is shy and introverted, Togata is the exact opposite, full of optimism and inspiration. Somewhere in-between their two extreme personalities sits the kind, thoughtful, and popular Nejire Hado, who quickly became a fan-favorite after her introduction as part of Class 1-A’s Hero Work Students.

Nejire is part of U.A’s ‘Big 3’, the most powerful students at the entire school.

While Nejire can sometimes be viewed as a bit of an “airhead” due to her almost constant sunny disposition, she is clever, quick-witted, and incredibly powerful, with her Wave Motion quirk giving her the ability to convert her own vitality into energy, and use it to create powerful spiral shockwaves that send enemies flying. Using this powerful ability does drain the hero though as it uses her own stamina, often leaving Hado with great exhaustion.

While she can often be seen in her U.A. High School uniform, cosplayer ‘elaine.rose.cosplay‘ has shown off her take on the character in her hero outfit, complete with the blue bodysuit that Nejire wears into combat, with pale mint green markings and turquoise framing.

Nejire’s blue hair falls down her back, complete with the bangs that sit on either side of her face, while her two spiraling horns of hair stick up high on her head, making this one of the most accurate Hado cosplays we’ve seen.

Since releasing as an anime back in 2016, My Hero Academia has become a smash hit across the globe, with fans who prefer the English dub getting to watch it at the same time as their Japanese-favoring counterparts for Season 4.

The fourth season of the show has now completed, leaving fans anxious for more. Unfortunately, there’s currently no word on when we’ll see the fifth season, with only the confirmation that it will take place for viewers to hold onto for the foreseeable future.
