Valorant’s Sage has proven to be a very popular character to cosplay ever since her reveal, and yet another cosplayer has stepped up to the plate to show their version of the agent.

Cosplayer ‘xangelicvenusx,’ also known as Emily, showcased her cosplay in an Instagram post on September 8 alongside a series of photos.

The outfit does a nice job as mimicking Sage’s attire with her white clothing blended nicely with the additional teal and purple hues.

Emily also took pains and paid attention to the design’s small details: For example, she made sure to include Sage’s teal earrings, wrist armor, and the patch on her shoulder.

“I am shield and sword, never forget that!” the cosplayer posted as the caption for her photoshoot.

Additionally, with the help of some photo editing, she managed to include some of the agent’s orbs – key component of Sage’s kit that create barriers, heal and slow.

Emily’s hair also lines up nicely with Sage’s, completing the look and making sure there’s no doubts who she is dressed as.

Sage has been a popular character to cosplay.

While conventions are sadly still a ways off, at least cosplayers are still perfecting their craft from home. It’s looking likely that we’ll be seeing a lot more Valorant cosplays once conventions start back up; after all, the game was only released just this year.

In addition to Sage, xangelicvenusx has also cosplayed as Yumeko from the hit gambling anime Kakegurui, Chloe Price from Life is Strange, and even Ahri and Jinx from Riot’s other popular game, the MOBA League of Legends.

As Valorant keeps adding new agents, it’s likely we’ll see Emily cosplay even more characters from Riot’s tactical FPS – and we can’t wait to see what she plans to whip up next, considering the variety of her cosplays.

One skilled cosplayer has tried her hand at recreating Ibuki Mioda from Danganronpa, and has done an excellent job – capturing the character’s outfit in her costume perfectly.

Danganronpa is a game franchise created by Spike Chunsoft, having produced three main titles along with a spinoff in the form of a third-person shooter.

The premise of the first game Trigger Happy Havoc, is that there are 15 students trapped within a school, and the only way to break free is to murder other students and get away with it. For each crime scene, there is a discussion over who the students believe the murderer is.

The game has secured itself a loyal following.

The subsequent games follow a similar premise, and consist of a varied cast of characters who sport unique personalities and interesting character design.

Danganronpa has a substantial following, with many players becoming attached to the fantastic range of characters, and naturally many have chosen to cosplay their favorite people from the game thanks to their appealing aesthetics.

Cosplayer ayuu.exe decided to give Ibuki Mioda a try, an upbeat musician with a quirky personality featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School.

Ayuu.exe has managed to replicate Ibuki perfectly. Her intensely dark hair is long and pin-straight, with blue and pink pastel strands, along with a stunningly bold box fringe consisting of accompanying neon colors.

The horns atop her head replicate the use of hair, oversized black and white striped additions that compliment her quirky personality.

Her school uniform is minimalistic but a perfect recreation of the sailor style original, even keeping with the soft pink ribbon that hangs with a white clasp in the centre of her torso. On one hand she wears a scrunchie, and on the other, a pink and black fingerless glove that just reflects how fantastic the attention to detail was in this cosplay.

The recreation was popular among fans, and ayuu.exe’s posts have now reached over 6000 likes combined on Instagram.
