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.

The Resident Evil 3 Remake sees the return of Jill Valentine in her quest to take down bio terrorist organization Umbrella Corp.

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.

Cosplayer ‘Enji Night’ re-shot her take on Jill Valentine’s classic look from the original Resident Evil 3.

The cosplayer also hinted that fans can expect more RE3 content from her in the near future, with her caption suggesting that she may recreate Jill’s new outfit from the Remake very soon.

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.

Enji Night’s classic take on Jill Valentine is hauntingly true to the character’s appearance in the first RE3 game.

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.

Jill’s S.T.A.R.S. uniform is also available to wear in the Resident Evil 3 Remake.

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).


League of Legends cosplayer ready to rebel as Vastayan “baddy” Xayah

League of Legends cosplayer Wanderlustica, who made a name for herself as a cosplay extraordinaire, has brought feisty ADC heroine Xayah to life in all her Vastayan glory ⁠— you won’t see many LoL cosplays much better than this!

In 2017, League of Legends developers Riot Games decided to try something a little outside the box for their next champion release. Instead of dropping just one character, they debuted a duo ⁠— feathery Vastayan lovers Xayah and Rakan.

The pair fit like a glove. She was an ADC, and he was her support. The pair ⁠— and their sassy love ⁠— soon became fan-faves in the League of Legends fandom.

League cosplayer rules roost as Xayah

Of course, like any League favorite, there’s been plenty of cosplay takes on the pair. Now, that includes famous cosplayer Wanderlustica, who donned a stunning costume of the LoL “baddy” for an Instagram photoshoot earlier this month.

Wanderlustica’s stunning Xayah cosplay is absolutely amazing. She’s got every detail on point, from the Vastayan’s big busy ears, to her blue and red battle robe, and even the skull adorned on her shoulder from her old victories.

The Xayah outfit also had the purple hood the ADC wears into every game on Summoner’s Rift, as well as her glorious purple and blood-red feathers. Luca rounded out the cosplay with knee-high wrap boots, and tough steel vambraces.

“I definitely loved wearing this cosplay, I love badass characters and Xayah is definitely one of them!” the Dutch cosplayer said of her League cosplay. “I’m so in love with it.”

Luca, who often makes her cosplays before showing them off on Instagram, was actually sent this Xayah outfit from Ezcosplay. The cosplay company had put the outfit together for Wanderlustica, who then added makeup and effects.

Wanderlustica is far from the only League cosplayer to unveil a fancy new outfit recently either. Ariatamagotchi got into the Halloween spirit earlier this month with a perfect take on Bewitching Nidalee, and Sweet Angel donned an awesome Akali cosplay in late September.

Luca also has more LoL projects in the works too. She’s already set to reveal her new K/DA cosplay soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that in November!
