A Pokemon cosplayer went viral on Instagram after sharing her true-to-life take on Jessie. The artist wowed fans with her perfect re-creation of the Team Rocket villain.

For many 90s children who watched the Pokemon anime, Team Rocket is just as iconic as the ‘mon in the series. To this day, fans can still fully recite the devious duo’s epic “prepare for trouble” speech!

A cosplayer celebrated the anime villains by bringing Jessie to life with a stunning costume. They look so much like the antagonist, it’s almost as if the character has jumped out of the screen.

Heavily featured in the 1998 anime, the Team Rocket trio became a staple of every episode in the long-running series. Decades later, fans still can’t get enough of Jessie.

Popular cosplayer Tayla ‘kinpatsucosplay‘ went viral on Instagram after sharing her mind-blowing transformation into magenta-haired villain. No easy feat, the talented artist managed to capture the character’s massive hair with an insanely accurate wig.

On Instagram, Tayla explained: “I’m really proud of this wig, it’s the hardest wig I’ve ever had to make, so I’m really glad it looked ok in the end!” She really does look like the anime character come to life, as she nailed every little detail of her look.

Kinpatsucosplay went to great depths to recreate the villain’s outfit, documenting the entire process on social media. Her white crop top not only features Team Rocket’s logo, but also zips up over a black undershirt. The attire also faithfully includes the signature gloves and knee high boots.

Those interested in seeing more of the epic outfit should check out her Instagram. The cosplay artist goes into incredible details to explain how she built each piece of the costume.

While Team Rocket hasn’t been a part of the mainline RPG series in Gen 8, fans of the villainous trio can catch them right now in the hit mobile title Pokemon Go.

World of Warcraft has inspired a whole collection of amazing cosplays, but one cosplayer truly brings WoW into reality with her amazing Kyrestia cosplay. 

When it comes to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft universe, there are limitless possibilities to create amazing cosplays. The huge array of iconic characters, coupled with the impressive customization for your own hero or villain, makes the title perfect for passionate fans.

We recently saw cosplayer Cinderys create an amazing Sylvanas cosplay just in time for the release of Shadowlands, which in turn managed to score her Blizzard’s seal of approval.

This time around the subject of this amazing cosplay is Sylvanas’ polar opposite, Kyrestia the Firstborne, the ruler of Bastion.

Cosplayer ascends as Kyrestia

2021 has brought with it a lot of insane cosplays, but this one is certainly one of the most memorable so far.

Artist PlexiCosplay (Plexi) has outdone herself with this beautiful transformation. Having painted herself aqua from head to toe, she can be seen adorned in Kyrestia’s iconic white and gold outfit whilst channeling the Ascended queen’s angelic nature.

What your eyes are immediately drawn to are the wings though. Mirroring the sky blue of her skin, their construction is perfect. Tipped with gold trims that tie in with her vestments and stunning recreation of the warrior’s crown, Plexi literally is Kyrestia.

WoW fans are stunned

Considering the wings are, according the Plexi, “15 feet long,” it’s safe to say that fans can’t miss this cosplay.

It’s the wings that have really gotten attention. One fan’s hilarious comment simply wrote: “the wind: I’m about to end this woman’s whole career,” to which Plexi responded “YOU NAILED IT.”

Another respondent was equally as humorous, writing “Kyrestia flight 77 you are cleared for takeoff, proceed to runway 4.”

All of these comments though praised this amazing cosplay, with one comment summing it up: “This blew my mind!!! I thought someone cropped the Archon out and pasted her onto some road!”

It’s safe to say that Plexi has truly embodied the fan favorite Ascended. She’s not only radiant, but emits a ‘don’t mess with me’ aura. We can’t wait to see her next WoW cosplay, as if she keeps going like she’ll be the queen of not just Bastion, but the WoW cosplay scene in no time!
