Zach ‘Sneaky’ Scuderi has done it again. The former League of Legends pro has fooled everyone with yet another amazing genderbend cosplay, this time featuring Fate Grand Order’s Shuten Douji in a cute maid outfit.

Sneaky was once one of the best AD carries to take to Summoner’s Rift in League of Legends. However he’s traded in the bright lights of the LCS Arena for the cosplay stage over the last couple of years, and he’s taken fans by storm.

His cosplays are much loved by fans, so much so that he has over 1,500 supporters on Patreon. While he’s cosplayed the franchise that made him popular in the first place many times, he also has another love ⁠— Fate Grand Order.

Shuten Douji was one of the most popular additions to FGO.

While he’s showcased cosplays of other characters from the franchise, his latest one might be the best yet. Sneaky took on the challenge of recreating oni character Shuten Douji, and he did so in style.

It’s not a traditional version of the five-star assassin, however some fans would digress that his version is better ⁠— he turned Shuten Douji into a maid. While Sneaky put together the iconic headdress, including the red and white horns, he chose to run with a maid costume over a kimono.

The cosplay is still stunning. The dress is beautifully done, and like all of his other cosplays, you’d be hard pressed to tell that it was a genderbend.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Sneaky cosplay without a Cloud9 reply. The org stuck to their guns, telling their former star “you’re so hot brother.” However, this time, Sneaky took notice and shot back: “Instant response.”

It’s not the first Fate Grand Order cosplay Sneaky has done to impress fans. Earlier this year, he pulled off a magnificent Nero maid cosplay. He’s also tackled Astolfo ⁠— which is quite fitting for him.

It’s only a matter of time until Sneaky confuses his fanbase yet again with another mesmerizing cosplay. With Worlds just around the corner, the former League pro could surprise us all with a new champion cosplay, or he might go for something entirely different. Watch this space.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
