A skilled Overwatch cosplayer has literally become Widowmaker with an insanely good take on the sniper hero.

Widowmaker is one of the first-person shooter’s damage-per-second characters, and uses a sniper rifle to inflict deadly shots onto her enemies.

Cosplayer and streamer Leechu shared her cosplay of the poisonous hero, and it’s so accurate, it’ll have fans think she’s stepped right out of their TV screen.

Amazing Overwatch cosplay

The character gets her name from the black widow spider, which is fitting considering she killed her husband Gérard Lacroix after the enemy team Talon reprogrammed her as a sleeper agent.

In Widow’s default skin, she wears a helmet shaped like a spider’s head with multiple red eyes. The Korean artist replicates this in her take, as well as her flowing black hair.

The DPS hero’s sniper rifle, Widow’s Kiss, scopes out enemies from long distances, and allows her to inflict headshots with ease. This is something that Leechu recreates with perfect accuracy in her shot, and makes for one of the best Overwatch cosplays we’ve ever seen.

In another photograph, the streamer shows off her costume in its full glory, and completely nails the character’s purple and black bodysuit. She even got the makeup down to a T, mimicking her cold, blue skin effortlessly.

The cosplayer is shown slinging her Grappling Hook towards the camera in the shot, which Widowmaker uses when trying to flank or evade targets. This ties the whole thing together, and really gives the whole thing an ominous yet epic feel.

When paired with the dark, urban background, the atmosphere makes it feel as though you’re right in the freezing cold back alleys alongside the sniper who’s waiting for her prey.

Leechu isn’t just an Overwatch cosplayer – she’s also been known to create outfits from other pop culture franchises such as Pokemon, Super Mario, and Re:Zero.

The Korean also streams on Twitch from time to time when not dressing up as her favorite characters.

A Resident Evil Village cosplayer shared her mind-blowing true-to-life take on Alcina Dimitrescu. The talented artist brought the viral tall vampire lady to life with an insanely accurate costume.

Ever since her reveal in January 2021, the internet can’t get enough of the “tall vampire lady” that starred in Resident Evil Village’s trailer. Despite being the villain of the upcoming PlayStation 5 title, fans can’t get enough of the towering antagonist.

A cosplayer celebrated Alcina Dimitrescu by transforming into her with an incredibly detailed outfit. The artist’s perfect recreation is so accurate, it’s almost as if the terrifying character has walked right out of the screen and into real life.

Alcina’s explosion in popularity not only took many players by surprise, but Capcom itself was caught off guard by the internet’s obsession over the new villain. I mean, what’s not to love? The incredibly fierce antagonist has a unique design and looks badass the first time her towering height is revealed.

Prolific cosplayer Galina ‘rgtcandy‘ Zhukovskaya made waves on Instagram after sharing her faithful costume of the vampire on February 15. The artist perfectly recreated the antagonist’s iconic white silk pleated dress, as well as her signature large hat which hangs over her eyes.

Photographer Victoria ‘milliganvick‘ not only captured Galina as she posed as Dimitrescu but also helped the artist mirror Alcina’s look by meticulously applying makeup. This is easily one of the best portrayals of the tall vampire lady we have ever seen and it will be sure to capture fans’ hearts.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the talented duo also portrayed an iconic scene from the demo where Alcina emerges from a locked door and grabs Ethan. The 1:1 re-creation is chilling to say the least, as it brings the game to life like never before.

Resident Evil Village will make its debut on next-gen consoles and PC on May 7, 2021. The new entry in the popular survival-horror franchise will be the eighth in the series and will continue the design of 7 by using a first-person point of view.

While fans can’t seem to get enough of vampire Alcina Dimitrescu right now, it may be a different tune once the terrifying villain is chasing players down during the title’s epic story. One thing is for certain, though – the towering antagonist is already an icon in the genre.
