A Pokemon cosplayer went viral after sharing an incredible transformation into Gen VII monster Mimikyu. The artist’s creative outfit will be sure to steal fans hearts as she brings the Sun & Moon character to life in the most adorable way.

Pokemon Sun & Moon made its debut in 2016, and introduced players to the tropical islands of Alola. The Gen VII title brought new monsters to the series such as the Ghost-type Mimikyu who disguises itself as a Pikachu.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the creepily adorable character with a unique costume that brings it to life like you’ve never seen before. Her perfect take on the ‘mon is one of the best things fans will see all week.

Pokemon cosplayer becomes Mimikyu

The shy Ghost-type made its debut in Sun & Moon on the 3DS. Players were first introduced to the monster in an abandoned store. According to its lore, the creature doesn’t want to be looked at, so it hides under a sheet that looks like Pikachu.

Bringing the character to life, cosplayer Rin ‘musedreaming‘ shared her unique take on the seventh gen Pokemon on Instagram. The artist captured the monster’s cloth-sack disguise in the form of a hoodie.

In the game, the ghost hides under its costume, which musedreaming adorably mirrors by wearing the hoodie over her head. The costume faithfully includes its crooked ears, as well as the scribbled on eyes and red cheeks.

On September 6, the cosplayer went viral on social media after showing off her unique costume, while posing next to an image of the Pokemon from the game. At the time of writing, the post has over 17k likes.

In another shot, Rin captures the creature’s anxious and sad nature with facial expressions. Cosplaying as Pokemon can be difficult to pull off, but this is one of the most creative takes we’ve seen.

Sun and Moon released over four years ago, and got an Ultra edition a year later. Despite only being introduced in Gen VII, Mimikyu has quickly become a favorite in the community.

In 2019, the Pokemon franchise entered its eighth generation with the release of Sword & Shield on the Nintendo Switch. Fans of the shy Ghost ‘mon can obtain him in the latest RPG – here’s how.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
