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.

Fans of Final Fantasy are loving streamer Hyoon’s perfect take on popular character Tifa Lockhart, matching the original look exactly and looking as if she had come straight from the game.

2020’s Final Fantasy VII remake was hugely anticipated, with both new and old fans of the franchise keen to delve into the world of the game again, with it having been first released way back in 1997.

A wide range of iconic characters has emerged from the hugely popular franchise, including Aerith, Cloud Strife, and of course Tifa Lockhart.

Square EnixTifa Lockhart is one of the main characters in Final Fantasy VII.

While Tifa was always popular, the remake being released in 2020 certainly seemed to add a further boost, and many in the cosplay community tried their hand at recreating the series’ fierce fighter.

Hyoon was one such person to take on the character’s combat-inspired costume, and she definitely hit the nail on the head, with her post quickly gaining thousands of likes on Twitter.

Hyoon had the outfit down perfectly – a white sports top with a black under-layer giving off the perfect athletic feel, with the leather braces hung from her neck and attached to her skirt which added the combat vibes.

The black elbow-length gloves are adorned with buckles and straps which makes her look ready for battle as Tifa, and tie in with the pleather skirt for a cohesive look.

At the bottom of the image the tops of thigh-length black socks can be seen, just going to show how well the look matches to the original outfit.

Her sleek dark brown hair rests on her shoulder on one side, which is reminiscent of many of Tifa’s promotional images, and her expertly applied makeup is the finishing touch to an overall fantastic cosplay.

Fans certainly seem to love it as well, with Hyoon’s tweet showcasing her work at over 93,000 likes at the time of writing.
