Overwatch cosplayer takes aim with incredibly accurate Widowmaker outfit

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.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
