One Overwatch fan has actually transformed their cat into “Junkcat” for Halloween, and it’s definitely one of the top costumes based on the game we’ve seen shared this year.

Along with new skins for Halloween Terror, another thing Overwatch players can look forward to every time spooky season rolls around is all of the amazing costumes fans come up with and share.

These apparently aren’t just limited to human fans either, as one of the best costumes we saw this year was what one player subjected their cat to by turning it into the perfectly-named “Junkcat.”

Let’s just come right out and say it: this cosplay absolutely kills it. If the blonde wig and eyebrows don’t make you smile, then the little game-accurate prosthetic paw is sure to.

The fiery feline is also equipped with some explosive bandoliers, and Junkrat’s grenade launcher is also strapped on as well. They even included a RIP-Tire and a trap, so all birds, squirrels, and other small mammals around the yard should definitely stay alert.

Junkcat does not seem amused by this at all though judging from the picture, and it’s amazing that its humans managed to keep it still long enough to get a good shot before it turned that launcher into an actual weapon.

There have been a few pet Overwatch cosplays before, but most of the ones before have been of the canine variety, so it’s nice to see mans other furry friend getting some time in the spotlight as well.

That look on Junkcat’s face? They’re thinking about doing this to whoever dressed them up like this.

As far as in-game festivities go, Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event is still going on until November 3, 2020. That means you still have a few days to earn all the loot boxes you can and unlock the Ragdoll Echo skin that won’t be available ever again once things wrap up.

Brigitte may have the monopoly on cat-related in-game content, for now, but Junkcat is so good it definitely tops our list for the best Overwatch Halloween costumes of 2020.

My Hero Academica isn’t all about the main characters since there are plenty of excellent minor ones too, and one cosplayer stunned her fans by dressing up as Rabbit Hero Mirko.

Mirko is an awesome character for many reasons. My Hero Academica fans love her tough, straightforward, and tenacious personality. However, they also love the fact she takes on intense situations with a big smile.

Mirko also has a somewhat zen-like approach to life, which is a stark contrast to her ferocity. She takes every day as it comes and has no qualms about putting her life on the line for the greater good. All in all, it makes her the perfect fifth-ranked professional hero.

Rabbit Hero Mirko is one of the toughest heroes in My Hero Academia.

My Hero Academia cosplayers often dress up as main characters and fan-favorites. However, they still show minor characters like Rabbit Hero Mirko some love too, and that’s exactly what Julia (also known as capulet.cos) has done.

“Joining a team is for weaklings,” she wrote, in reference to Mirko’s belief that teams are for cowards.

“More Bunny content for y’all. She’s definitely my favorite character from [My Hero Academia] and [I] love the amount of confidence this cosplay gives me.”

Julia looks absolutely stunning as Rabbit Hero Mirko. She’s included everything from the trademark bunny ears, white hair, fluffy collar, and gloves to a picture-perfect replication of the outfit itself.

It even has the crescent moon symbol on her chest, which ties in with the name of some of Mirko’s moves. Luna Ring, Luna Fall, and Luna Arc all revolve around Mirko’s insanely powerful leg kicks.

Unfortunately, it seems like the wig is a bit of a hassle to wear. “I hate the wig so much,” said Julia. “It tangles so fast.”

Still, it looks fantastic and was definitely worth the trouble. My Hero Academia fans have been pouring in to praise Julia and show their support, and the numbers keep on rising.
