Korean Twitch streamer ‘zzamtiger0310’ reached her final form during a January 18 stream when she cosplayed as anime antagonist Frieza during a Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot playthrough.

The streamer shocked her viewers by walking into the frame wearing a costume resembling Frieza’s fourth and final form (at least in the Dragon Ball Z continuity) prompting a humorous response from her chat.

Within seconds, the mostly all-Korean audience began typing “ㅋㅋㅋ” which is Korean slang for laughing. And for good reason too – zzamtiger0310’s cosplay definitely looked to be a bit on the lower-scale of quality, but that only added to its charm.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is the latest game in the series.

The cosplayer’s outfit was white with patches of purple on the head, shoulders, and torso. It even had a tail for good measure. Most amusingly was the fact that the Twitch star painted her face white and added some purple lipstick to complete the getup.

After posing for the camera, zzamtiger0310 even did her best impression of Frieza’s iconic laugh, and did a pretty good job all things considered.

Frieza is considered to be one of the most infamous villains in all of anime and certainly the best antagonist that the entire Dragon Ball franchise has had to offer over the years. So much so that in recent years, he has been resurrected to yet again plague the universe in Dragon Ball Super.

Despite her stream being almost exclusively in Korean, zzamtiger0310 is one of Twitch’s more popular streamers with over 150,000 followers.

Over on YouTube, she regularly uploads League of Legends gameplay where she has 140,000 subscribers.

It will be interesting to see what other absurd takes on Dragon Ball characters the streamer can pull off such as Cell, Majin Buu, Beerus, or even Broly. Hopefully she’ll try it out if there’s ever Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot DLC.

This may be one of the most outrageous Frieza cosplays yet.

The game follows the events of Dragon Ball Z through to the Buu saga and the end of the original series. The two canon films taking place after the anime, Battle of Gods and Resurrection F, however, were remade for the Super anime.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

A Neon Genesis Evangelion cosplayer shared her transformation into popular character Rei Ayanami. The artist brought the anime heroine to life with a mind-blowing underwater photoshoot.

Ever since its debut in 19995, Neon Genesis Evangelion has been one of the most influential animes of all time. The Studio Gainax Mecha was originally written by Hideaki Anno.

To celebrate the hit show, a cosplayer went to new depths – literally – to bring lead character Rei Ayanami to life. The artist’s jaw dropping underwater photo recreation will leave fans of the sci-fi epic speechless.

The blue-haired heroine is one of the main characters in the hit anime.

While the series heavily revolves around teenager Shinji Ikari moving to Tokyo-3, the protagonist quickly meets a diverse cast of characters after joining Nerv. One of the fierce characters introduced is Rei Ayanami who pilots Evangelion mechs to defend humanity from the alien threat called Angels.

Cosplayer Tessa ‘tessa_crownster’ made waves on Instagram after faithfully bringing the heroine to life in November. The artist absolutely nailed the character’s signature look, accurately mirroring her short blue bob-style haircut, as well as depicting her striking red eyes.

Tessa utilized underwater photography with the help of ‘brettsphoto‘ to truly capture the anime’s sci-fi roots. The result is stunning as it looks like she is floating in a tank full of wires and circuits. The creative shoot is easily one of the best cosplays we have ever seen of Evangelion.

In another shot posted to the cosplayer’s social media, crownster gave fans a closer view of her incredible portrayal of Rei. The picture taken by ‘samu.snap‘ showcases just how accurate her costume is to the hit anime. Tessa looks ready for battle as she mimics Ayanami’s stance while wearing her iconic white and black pilot bodysuit.

Despite releasing over 25 years ago, Evangelion continues to have a major influence on not only anime, but films and music. The groundbreaking Mecha was in many ways ahead of its time.

Those that might have missed out on the hit show back in the day can actually watch the original series right now on Netflix or Funimation.
