With the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield, the Water Gym Leader Nessa was almost instantly a fan-favorite and ripe for cosplay potential. Now, it would seem like a cosplayer has pushed that potential to the max with her take on the character.

Leiracosplays has generated a sizable following with her Disney-themed outfits, but her Nessa uniform may be her best creation, yet.

The complete outfit features everything from Nessa’s aqua-blue eyes, teal hair, crop top and special sandals.

I’m done with the bulk of my Nessa cosplay – yay ? ? I’m so so proud of my work ? I managed to put this cosplay together from leftover fabric and Eva foam scraps. I cannot wait to finish it completely and show y’all the final result ? I hope to post more soon. I’m trying to get two more cosplays finished by the end of this month ?? ?? #nessa #nessacosplay #nessapokemon #pokemonswordandshield hield #pokemon #swordandshield #pokemoncosplay #cosplay #cosplayersofinstagram #cosplaygirl #cosplaywip #wip #videogames #anime #manga #cosplaygirl #cosplaysexy #cosplayer #blackcosplayerhere #blackcosplayersrock #poccosplay #hispaniccosplayer #blackcosplayer #blackcosplay #cosplaygirls #cosplaysidebyside #selfie #cosplaycomparison #e3 #sidebysidecosplay #costest

Everything from the gym leader’s single glove, waist chain and hoop earrings are included to complete the ensemble.

“I managed to put this cosplay together from leftover fabric and Eva foam scraps,” Leiracosplays explained on Instagram.

If that wasn’t already impressive enough, the highly flexible cosplayer even imitated the gym leader’s leg pose in a side-by-side video.

When Nessa sends her Pokemon out, she does a highly exaggerated extension of her leg – something that Leiracosplays was able to copy and really bring the character to life.

“Okay, I’m convinced, you are just straight-up Nessa in real life!” one of the comments read.

In the games, Nessa is the second gym leader players face; however, they end up facing her again in the Champion Cup near the end of their journey.

In addition to Nessa, Leiracosplays has also dressed as Mary Jane from Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Gamora, Tifa from Final Fantasy VII and Demon Slayer’s Nezuko.

Meanwhile, on the Pokemon front, she’s also cosplayed as Bea and Pikachu.

With six more gym leaders in Sword and Shield ripe for cosplaying, it’ll be interesting to see if she chooses to make an outfit for them, as well. If so, we can’t wait to see what she has in store for us.
