A Resident Evil Village cosplayer has wowed fans with a spot on cosplay of the notorious matriarch Lady Alcina Dimitrescu, three months ahead of its planned release date.

Resident Evil Village is Capcom’s upcoming installment in the immensely popular horror franchise. Following on from 2017’s Biohazard and the remasters of 2 and 3 respectively, the next entry is highly anticipated.

Some fans have already got their hands on the game’s Maiden demo, which launched at the end of January. That gave fans their first proper look at Lady Alcina Dimitrescu, a mutant countess who had a memorable role in the game’s demo.

Her creepiness was matched only by the retractable claws she revealed at the end of Maiden, brutally spearing the protagonist and signaling the demo’s end. Since then, rather understandably, fans have been dying to see more of the terrifying matriarch.

The Maiden appearance of Lady Dimitrescu was brutal (and awesome).

While fans will have to wait a little longer for another in-game look at the countess, some cosplayers are already channeling their inner creativity and faithfully recreating her look. Cosplayers have also created other characters, such as Daniela.

That was the case with Instagram account ‘alice_with_cats’, who regularly posts awesome cosplays to her followers.

In early February, she turned her attention to Lady Dimitrescu, absolutely nailing her towering figure, wide-brimmed hat and long, flowing gown.

We’re also pleased to report that the cosplayer took the time to add the long, retractable claws, transporting her Lady Dimitrescu look from creepy to downright threatening.

She also showcased a few more angles afterwards, which really brought the incredible attention to detail to light. Whether it’s the blood spatters across the chest and neck or the black leather gloves, it’s an incredible cosplay for a character who we’ve not even fully met.

For a full look at the cosplay (and all the others she’s done), be sure to check out Alice’s Instagram page.

Lady Dimitrescu became the subject of internet memes when it was revealed she’s over 9 feet tall. Needless to say, this fact piqued the interest of many basketball teams.

Barring any delays, Resident Evil Village is set to drop on May 7, 2021.

A My Hero Academia cosplayer stunned her thousands of fans with a brilliant transformation into Rabbit Hero Miruko; the fifth-highest ranked pro hero in the series.

Rumi Usagiyamam, better known as Rabbit Hero Miruko isn’t one of My Hero Academia’s main characters. However, she’s a popular one, especially among cosplayers. She was first introduced as a silhouette in Episode 82 and finally made a full appearance in Episode 86.

Rabbit Hero Miruko is uncompromising and candid, which is what you’d expect from the fifth-highest ranked pro hero. But unlike other heroes, she doesn’t like the idea of teams. Instead, she prefers working alone and relying on her strength.

Her quirk, Rabbit, gives her the qualities and abilities of a rabbit, including incredible leg strength, excellent hearing, and a knack for sensing danger. Her kicks are so strong, they can shatter entire buildings.

My Hero Academia’s Rabbit Hero Miruko is tough as nails.

A cosplayer named Sachi stunned her fans with one of the best Rabbit Hero Miruko cosplays we’ve ever seen. It captured every little detail of her hero costume, from the sleeveless white and purple leotard with a crescent moon on her chest to the metal plates above her hips and purple boots. 

She also didn’t forget about the long-flowing white hair trademark bunny ears, which are equally important.

“PRO HERO NO.5: Rabbit Hero Miruko!” she wrote. “Your fave rabbit girl is here to save the day! Who’s your favorite pro hero?

You’ll see fans describe it as gorgeous, perfect, and stunning in the comments, and they are right on the money. It’s not the first time Sachi has made headlines with her quality cosplays, and it won’t be the last. 

All in all, it’s about as close as you can get to seeing the real thing. The photography from topherblev was top-notch, too. It helped Sachi’s already awesome cosplay look even better.
