Ada Wong is one of Resident Evil’s most popular characters. Known for her red dress, fancy shoes and styled black hair, the anti-hero is one of the most popular femme fatales in gaming and thus, ripe for cosplay.

Russian model Ksana Stankevich tried her luck with an Ada Wong costume, and the results speak for themselves.

In a series of photoshoots, Stankevich mimics Ada’s look from Resident Evil 4, and recreates several scenes that could have been ripped right from the game.

In one photo, the model stands in a warehouse while her dress blows in the wind. As she poses, she stares at the camera looking fierce while her finger rests on the trigger of a rifle.

Better yet, in a follow-up pic, the cosplayer hides behind a pile of rugs and bags while one of the game’s infamous chainsaw men try searching for her.

This shot, in particular, is a nice dual cosplay. because it features yet another character from the game. As anyone who played Resident Evil 4 knows, you do not want to fight one of those enemies at close range due to their instant kill potential.

A few other shots show Stankevich posing from behind while wielding a handgun and walking into the unknown.

Finally, in one of her most impressive photos, the model changed up her look slightly to come more in line with Ada’s appearance in the Resident Evil 2 remake. A side-by-side comparison shows just how much effort went into making this version practically identical to her in-game model.

“I really like this woman; she is so strong, beautiful and sexy,” the cosplayer said of the character.

In addition to Ada, Stankevich has also cosplayed as Batman’s Poison Ivy, Tracer from Overwatch, Final Fantasy’s Tifa and Lara Croft from Tomb Raider.

With so much talent, we can’t wait to see what the cosplay genius comes up with next.

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.
