Sword Art Online cosplayer takes aim with amazing Sinon costume

Italian cosplayer Ambra Ferrante has jumped right into the anarchical world of Gun Gale Online with an amazing cosplay of Sword Art Online character Asada Shino, more commonly known as Sinon.

Sinon is one of the most revered characters from Sword Art Online. The gun-shy Asada Shino jumped into Gun Gale Online to become one of the VR game’s best snipers, and became friends with the main cast along the way.

Her trademark blue hair and green jacket can be spotted from a mile away, and although she’s known for being cool, calm, and collected, sometimes she can get a bit riled up.

Piling all that personality and flair into a cosplay is tricky, but Ferrante managed to do that with a brilliant re-enactment of Sinon’s GGO attire. Her entire costume from head to toe looks handmade and to scale of the original. After all, it’d be pretty hard to find a jumper just like Sinon’s in any old shop.

She also put some effort into getting the hairstyle just right too. While its a wig, the styling ⁠— down to the two pins on the front ⁠— is absolutely flawless.

Ferrante topped off the GGO Sinon cosplay with a replica of Sinon’s rifle. The PGM Ultima Ratio Hecate II also looks to be created from scratch by the cosplayer themselves, and it puts the cherry on top of this immaculate cosplay.

Ferrante has demoed this cosplay at numerous events in the past, and it looks to be a fan favorite. It’s one of the most true-to-life representations of Sinon that we’ve seen.

If Sinon isn’t your style, she has done a cosplay of Asuna in the past too, creating the Flash’s armor from scratch and completing it with her own Lambent Light.

SAO isn’t the only franchise Ferrante has adapted into real life. She has done numerous other designs from other popular anime.

From Evangelion’s Asuka, to Violet from Violet Evergarden, Ferrante has replicated some of the genre’s most recognizable characters. Check out her Instagram to see if she’s done one of yours.

Apex Legends cosplayer takes Horizon outfit to new heights

An Apex Legends cosplayer has stunned fans of Respawn’s BR by bringing Horizon to life, ensuring the Season 7 legend has never looked so real. 

The Apex Legends community has an incredible connection with Respawn’s source material, regularly sharing artwork, videos and cosplays inspired by the world and characters.

Horizon cosplays are obviously still fairly new, given that the Scottish legend was only added with Season 7. The Gravitational Manipulator has brought new levels of verticality to the Olympus map, thanks to her Gravity Lift, Spacewalk and Black Hole abilities.

As far as aesthetics go, Horizon is known for her spacesuit theme. Her iconic ginger hair protrudes out the top of her suit. It’s an awesome look, simultaneously cool and terrifying to see coming towards you in-game.

Horizon’s abilities give incredible movement options.

One cosplayer, though, took on the challenge and, with some incredible skill, came out looking exactly like the legend herself.

Sosenka (@itlookslikekilled on Instagram) shared her Horizon look on December 4, stunning her followers and the Apex community alike. She has previously shared a Loba cosplay, but many agreed that her Horizon look was even more impressive.

The white suit is complete to perfection, with the goggles and arm bands even down to a tee. At the time of writing, it sits at just shy of 9,000 likes.

The look was so good that it even drew the attention of Elle Newlands – the voice actress behind the Season 7 legend.

She said: “I stan, you stan, we all stan for the #Horizon Cosplay Queen!” 

Horizon, despite being fairly new to the game, has taken well to the Olympus map, currently sitting in our A-Tier in our legend rankings. Her pick rates are fairly high, and abilities incredibly useful. Cosplays as good as this only make us want to use her more.
