League of Legends streamer Zach ‘Sneaky’ Scuderi stunned social media with his take on Fate/Grand Order’s Nero with a maid cosplay for the ages.

Sneaky, who was formerly a League of Legends pro with Cloud9, unveiled his cosplay on May 31 to applause from his followers.

“Nero maid cosplay,” he wrote and added a flushed emoji.

Scuderi’s outfit came equipped with golden high heels, white nylons and a bright red eye-popping maid outfit.

The outfit also consists of an apron with golden shoulders, maid headpiece, and a blonde wig.

According to the streamer, he had his girlfriend, Esther Lynn, do his makeup and it shows as his lips have a nice pinkness to them in addition.

Finally, the photographer was SquareNoodles, who has a series of highly impressive cosplay pictures on his Instagram page.

Amusingly, in the other photo, the streamer went out of his way to promote G Fuel by holding up two containers.

“With some bonus G Fuel xD,” he wrote on Instagram and added that he would be getting a new setup soon.

A Sword Art Online cosplayer went viral on Instagram after sharing her transformation into popular anime character Sinon. The artist’s stunning take brings the Phantom Bullet heroine to life.

Originally written in 2002 by novelist Reki Kawahara, Sword Art Online exploded in popularity a decade later with its animated adaptation in 2012. Viewers around the world have fallen in love with its creative take on massively multiplayer online role playing games.

Prolific cosplayer Sarah ‘hendoart‘ Hendo made waves on social media when she shared her costume based on the anime’s second season arc, the Phantom Bullet. The talented artist brought the beloved blue-haired sniper Sinon to life with an insanely accurate take.

Sword Art Online cosplayer becomes real life Sinon

While the series starts off with protagonist Kazuto Kirigaya getting stuck in the virtual world of Aincrad, the show’s later seasons take place in a different online video game. In season two, Kirito meets a fierce sniper with a deadly aim named Sinon.

Bringing the heroine to life, cosplayer Hendoart shared her mind-blowing transformation into the character on Instagram. Photographer ‘nerdypictures‘ captured the artist posing in her signature outfit. The costume is full of meticulous detail, and includes a cut out black and white bodysuit which runs under her green jacket and leggings.

Sarah recreated a scene from the anime, and mirrored Sinon’s battle stance by holding her iconic sniper rifle behind her head. The life-size prop weapon was created by ‘airsoftevike‘ and is so accurate that it looks as if it could have come straight out of the screen.
