Pokemon cosplayers blast off with impressive Team Rocket getup

A cosplay duo pulled off a near-perfect incarnation of Team Rocket from the Pokemon anime with some of the best wig work ever.

Cosplayers “Ryoko Demon” and “Reidoll” teamed up to bring the anime antagonists to life – and the end result was pure 90’s euphoria.

Ryoko took the part of Jesse, and managed to design the perfect R-shaped hair curve to resemble the character from the show. Of course, natural hair would have a difficult time bending the laws of physics like this, but Ryoko managed to make it work with an assist from a wig.

Meanwhile, Reidoll took the role of James, and matched her counterpart with a similar look and dynamic, sharp purple hair.

Redditor “joshuahanslow17” uploaded a photo of the duo to the website where many users were blown away by the concept.

“The Jesse wig is Incredible!” one user replied. “I’ve never seen the Jesse hair done right. That is fantastic!” another said.

Some were impressed with the fact that Reidoll included a purple belt with her James cosplay, something that many seem to overlook when they design their costumes.

While the clothing itself is relatively simple – white tops and pants with the iconic Rocket R in the middle – the look is incredibly clean, and could easily look to be ripped right from a living room TV set to a kids television station in the mid-90’s.

There are even more photos of the two in action on Ryoko Demon’s Instagram, including a pic where both cosplayers up the ante by donning traditional Japanese clothing.

In the anime, the Team Rocket duo, aided by their talking Meowth, are often seen trying to steal rare Pokemon and main protagonist Ash’s Pikachu. They also have many comic relief scenes that include the antagonists dressing up in outfits, such as the clothing seen above.

If there ever ends up being a live-action Pokemon movie in search of Team Rocket, these two cosplayers may be just the right people to play the roles.

Killjoy might be the inventive genius in the Valorant roster, but one of her biggest fans deserves the title too after she dished up a remarkably accurate cosplay. 

Valorant’s Agents are all unique. They have different strengths and weaknesses in certain situations. Killjoy, for example, is an absolute menace to face due to her ability to crowd control using gadgets.

However, that’s not the only reason fans love her. She’s hip, quirky, and a genius both on and off the battlefield. Interestingly, she’s a popular choice among cosplayers too, probably because something is alluring about her vibrant style.

Killjoy might be a genius, but she acts and dresses in a way that many people can relate to.

Luminavira recently shared a picture of her incredible Killjoy cosplay on the Valorant subreddit, and it made quite an impression. It’s only been up for several hours and has already gained more than 500 upvotes and received plenty of positive feedback.

“Everyone makes fun of German efficiency,” she said, reiterating one of Killjoy’s lines. “Just keep laughing as you use all my gear.”

“I can finally show you some Killjoy pictures,” she added. “I am so proud of this Cosplay, and I love this girl so much. I know a lot of you guys don’t know Valorant, but I hope you like it anyway.”

Luminavira made the costume herself, and she has done a fantastic job. The beanie, glasses, jacket, t-shirt, ripped jeans, gloves, and shoes all look like the real deal. It’s a perfect blend of green, yellow, grey, and purple.

The accessories were a nice touch as well. She included the bracelet, hip bag, leg strap, and even a replica rifle. What’s more, the attention to detail is second to none, and people were quick to notice.

“Wow, that’s amazing!” said the top comment in the Reddit thread. “You got even the tiniest details right. Even the pants are ripped in the same place. You look fantastic!”

“Introducing the real-life killjoy. This is seriously amazing!” said another. It’s a sentiment that others have shared, and for a good reason. Luminavira managed to bring her to life in the most incredible way.

Luminavira is all smiles, and rightfully so. Like many cosplayers dedicated to the craft, she put in a lot of time and effort, and it shines through. Capugraphy’s top-notch photography played a part too.

It’s always nice to see your favorite characters come to life. Valorant players, especially those who love Killjoy, have been truly mesmerized by this piece. Luminavira deserves all the praise she’s getting.
