Overwatch’s Ana has one of the best skins in the game in the form of Captain Amari. Cosplayer “Lazee” tried her luck at mimicking the costume, and the result is an outfit that looks like it’s ripped right from the popular team shooter.

Taking to Reddit, Lazee was eager to show off her creation with Overwatch’s cosplay community. “I’m an infrequent OW player, but I am always looking for characters than inspire me to cosplay,” the model said in her post.

“Ana has always been such a unique woman so I finally made her!” she exclaimed, and revealed her own version of Captain Amari.

Lazee went to great lengths to ensure she nailed even the tiniest of details with the hero while still adding her own unique flair.

For instance, the eagle on her beret is much larger than it is in the game. Additionally, while Ana’s arms are covered, the cosplayer opted for a short-sleeved look.

The gun that the cosplayer uses is a bit more heavy-duty than the healing-based sniper rifle Ana totes in the game. As model pointed out on Instagram, it’s “not an accurate gun,” but there’s not doubt it could still dole out some damage!

In Overwatch lore, Ana was one of the world’s deadliest snipers and the mother of future hero Pharah.

When Ana was in her 50s, she engaged in a sniper duel with Widowmaker, in which the Talon operative was able to land a direct shot and completely destroy her cybernetic eye. This explains why Ana wears an eyepatch in her modern skins.

Speaking of Widowmaker, Lazee may be trying her luck at cosplaying the femme fatale next. “In the future, I’d like to try to make a Widow and maybe a fem Reaper,” she stated on Reddit.

Nothing is off limits for Lazee to cosplay.

Given how impressive her young Ana getup was, we can’t wait to see what she has in store for with the next Overwatch hero she tries her hand at.

That said, Lazee has also tackled characters such as Black Canary, Jinx from League of Legends, Zero Suit Samus and more. The sky is limit for this cosplayer!

One skilled cosplayer has tried her hand at recreating Ibuki Mioda from Danganronpa, and has done an excellent job – capturing the character’s outfit in her costume perfectly.

Danganronpa is a game franchise created by Spike Chunsoft, having produced three main titles along with a spinoff in the form of a third-person shooter.

The premise of the first game Trigger Happy Havoc, is that there are 15 students trapped within a school, and the only way to break free is to murder other students and get away with it. For each crime scene, there is a discussion over who the students believe the murderer is.

The game has secured itself a loyal following.

The subsequent games follow a similar premise, and consist of a varied cast of characters who sport unique personalities and interesting character design.

Danganronpa has a substantial following, with many players becoming attached to the fantastic range of characters, and naturally many have chosen to cosplay their favorite people from the game thanks to their appealing aesthetics.

Cosplayer ayuu.exe decided to give Ibuki Mioda a try, an upbeat musician with a quirky personality featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School.

Ayuu.exe has managed to replicate Ibuki perfectly. Her intensely dark hair is long and pin-straight, with blue and pink pastel strands, along with a stunningly bold box fringe consisting of accompanying neon colors.

The horns atop her head replicate the use of hair, oversized black and white striped additions that compliment her quirky personality.

Her school uniform is minimalistic but a perfect recreation of the sailor style original, even keeping with the soft pink ribbon that hangs with a white clasp in the centre of her torso. On one hand she wears a scrunchie, and on the other, a pink and black fingerless glove that just reflects how fantastic the attention to detail was in this cosplay.

The recreation was popular among fans, and ayuu.exe’s posts have now reached over 6000 likes combined on Instagram.
