Smash Ultimate pro Ezra ‘Samsora’ Morris is one of the most unique members of the game’s competitive scene, and showed exactly why with an incredible Bowsette cosplay.

Morris, who is known for being the world’s top Peach player, is no stranger to cosplays, but this one may just be his most impressive yet.

Taking to Twitter, the pro posted four photos of himself dressed as the fan-made character Bowsette, equipped with a shell on his back, black fingernails and nylons.

However, instead of opting for blonde hair, Morris decided to spice things up with a red wig in addition to the character’s horns and crown.

The response was mixed to say the least. While the tweet was liked nearly 8,000 times, there were some negative responses.

Fellow pro player Tyler ‘Marss’ Martins replied saying, “I support you, but I won’t like the post.”

Another professional player, Brian ‘Cosmos’ Kalu had a similar take. “I don’t support this but I liked the post,” he said.

“This ain’t it chief,” Twitter user Liberty Prime commented.

The character of Bowsette was created by artist Ayyk92 back in 2018. The premise was that in New Super Mario Bros. U, the character Toadette would transform into Peachette when she puts on the Super Crown powerup.

In the comic created by Ayyk92, Mario antagonist Bowser puts the Super Crown on, transforming into Bowsette. The comic went viral and many different cosplays of the fan-made character began springing up across the net.

This isn’t the first time Samsora has cosplayed as a female character, either: At Smash Ultimate Summit 2, the eUnited player dressed up as Princess Peach, where he performed a catwalk as part of a talent show gag.

It will be fun to see what Samsora has up his sleeve for his next cosplay. It’s clear that he really enjoys breaking boundaries, even if some of his fellow players are shocked by what they see.

A Kill la Kill cosplayer made waves on Instagram after sharing her true-to-life take on protagonist Ryuko Matoi. The artist transformed into the anime heroine with an insanely accurate costume.

Kill la Kill exploded onto the anime scene in 2013, and took viewers by surprise with its over the top story and break-neck speed storytelling. The Studio Trigger show became an instant hit, and is still influential years later.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the serie, by bringing its protagonist Ryuko Matoi to life. The artist’s faithful re-creation is so accurate, it’s almost as if the fierce heroine has slashed her way out of the screen.

Kill la Kill cosplayer’s perfect Ryuko Matoi

The anime wastes no time and opens up with Ryuko discovering the death of her father. Following the clues left behind, the strong-headed protagonist enrolls in Honnōji Academy to find the killer who destroyed her family.

Cosplayer ‘kawaiitsu‘ made waves on Instagram by bringing the heroine to life with an incredible costume. Photographer ‘lina_fk‘ captured the artist posing in the heroine’s navy-blue sailor uniform while wielding a prop of Matoi’s iconic red scissor blade.

In the story, the outfit is actually a living creature called Senketsu. Kawaiitsu faithfully created the entity’s eye in the form of the red and yellow patch which sits under her left collar.

Despite releasing almost a decade ago, Kill la Kill still continues to be a fan favorite. Studio Trigger’s fierce protagonist has become a beloved character that cosplayers love to bring to life.

While there has so far been no talks about a second season, fans can experience the story with new cutscenes in the 2019 fighting game IF. The Bandai developed title lets players relive the series like never before.
