A talented cosplayer went viral on Instagram after bringing Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s lead character Stacy Gwen to life.

In 2018, Sony surprised viewers with the hit Spider-Man film Into the Spider-Verse. The animation brought several versions of the web-slinging hero to the big screen, and won Best Animated Feature at the 2019 Academy Awards. 

Prolific cosplayer ‘mk_ays’ celebrated the award-winning project by transforming into the movie’s lead heroine, Gwen Stacy. The artist shared her jaw-dropping true-to-life take on the beloved character on social media.

While the film mainly centers around Miles Morales, the iconic protagonist realizes classmate Gwen Stacy is also a superhero from an alternate universe. The heroine was also bitten by an arachnid and goes by Spider-Gwen.

Popular cosplayer mk_ays brought her to life on Instagram, and made waves after sharing her costume. The Russian artist posed as the character in her school uniform, accurately re-creating a scene from the film.

Ays captured Gwen’s look effortlessly, perfectly mirroring her wavy short blonde hair. She even depicted the hero’s blue eyes, and eyebrow piercings. She looks so much like Stacy, it’s almost as if she’s jumped out of the screen.

The skilled artist also re-created the student’s superhero alter ego, Spider-Gwen, and accurately depicted her white and black bodysuit. In the film, the heroine web-slings into action and saves Miles Morales. 

The outfit is also packed full of details, such as her hoodie which has a red-webbing patterned underneath it. Her suit also has a textured black design, which runs from her chest down to the lower half of her pants.

Fans of Into: The Spider-Verse are in luck as the film’s protagonist, Miles Morales, is getting his very own video game on November 12 with the launch of the PlayStation 5.

While the game is not based on the 2018 animated film, players will no doubt jump at the chance to suit up as the iconic character once again.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
