The Resident Evil 3 Remake has finally released, and fans are flocking to replay Capcom’s classic horror title in all it’s new, visual glory — and it seems that cosplayers are getting in on the hype, too.

While players sink their teeth into Capcom’s reimagining of its ever-popular horror franchise, cosplayers are busy creating their own spins on the game’s iconic cast of characters such as Jill Valentine and Carlos Oliveira.

Popular cosplayer Enji Night brought out her own take on the game’s female lead, Jill, who is so popular that she’s made appearances in other Capcom titles like Project X Zone and even Marvel vs Capcom 2.

In the spirit of the Remake’s release, Enji put together Jill’s classic outfit from the original game, showing the character with her iconic bob cut, blue tube top, and miniskirt, even making sure to wrap a sweater around her waist.

Although simple, Enji’s take on the costume is incredibly accurate to the original game, which has since switched up Jill’s look with a skort and comparatively mussed hair — although her design certainly retains its loyalty to the first RE3.

In fact, Enji admitted that she’s had this cosplay in the closet for a while, but decided to re-shoot the costume considering both her fans’ affinity for the character and the newly-released Remake.

While players are all about her original outfit, the Remake also boasts another iconic look for Jill in her S.T.A.R.S. uniform, which clothes the character in a beret, trousers, tactical shoulder pads, and gloves.

Despite Capcom’s attention to detail in their re-imagining of the original game, some fans have expressed outrage over their changes to Jill’s clothing — in particular, her miniskirt, which the Remake changed to a skort, as aforementioned.

Nevertheless, it seems that the Resident Evil 3 Remake is being met with acclaim across the series’ fanbase — just be sure to keep an eye out for Nemesis (and his new nose).
