A skilled Overwatch fan has created an incredibly detailed Baihu Genji cosplay, complete with an equally precise replica of his sword.

Overwatch is currently in the beginning days of its Anniversary 2019 event, a yearly occurance in which all character unlocks from every past event are available to either purchase with in-game currency, or to win from a loot box.

One of the past skins up for grabs during the Anniversary is Baihu Genji, a skin first introduced in the Lunar New Year 2018 event, and talented fan babycubez has literally brought the outfit to life in their beautiful cosplay.

In a post on the official Overwatch subreddit, babycubez proudly showed off their creation, saying, “Happy Anniversary, Overwatch. Thank you for bringing us these amazing characters throughout years. This is one of my proudest costume works. [I] made this for my good friend and cosplayer /u/Vijaycos.”

Vijaycos is presumably the person modelling the Genji attire in the photos but even if they’re not, they’re incredibly lucky to have been given this incredibly detailed costume.

“The dedication to make that is incredible. That costume looks amazing! Great job,” commented one user. “It took me almost 4 months finishing everything as clean as I could make as planned. Thank you for the kind words,” babycubez replied.

Overwatch cosplayers are a talented bunch

While proficient cosplayers aren’t strictly all Overwatch-based, the game definitely has its fair share of costume wizards.

Julia from Denalism Cosplay showed off her perfect rendition of Overwatch’s 29th hero Ashe, sharing photos of herself in the character’s default outfit on Twitter.

“I’m so proud of this costume, y’all!” Julia tweeted, also giving out out details on how Ashe’s gun was made, “I purchased a file and 3d printed/finished/painted it!”

Her cosplay is so on-point that it almost looks like Ashe has stepped out of the game herself – pair her with a BOB sidekick and it’d be perfect.

Bleach cosplayer transforms into exotic Arrancar warrior Nelliel Tu

Bleach cosplays are all the rage these days, especially with the anime picking up where it left once again, but one cosplayer has generated a lot of buzz on social media with a fierce but adorable Nelliel Tu cosplay.

Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck, better known as Nel, is one of the more eccentric characters in bleach. She’s first introduced as an adorable but quirky Arrancar child with hazel eyes and green hair.

Initially, she believes Soul Reapers are evil and the sworn-enemies of her kind. However, she quickly becomes attached to Ichigo Kurosaki and follows him around in his quest to find Las Noches.

Eventually, she returns to her true adult form with a curvaceous figure and long waving hair. It was a surprise that many fans didn’t expect. It made her more cool, calm, collected, and intelligent, and also made her immensely more powerful.

However, in spite of all that, she still retained her child-like affection and innocence. The unexpected transformation into an adult made her one of the most interesting characters on the show.

A cosplayer named Julianne Darlen has taken her adoration of Nelliel Tu to the next level. She rocked an amazing outfit that captured the moment Nelliel Tu transforms from a child into an adult.

The green robe she was wearing tore and contoured to her shapely complexion. Her hair green grows longer as well, although the half a skull on her head remains in-tact. Julianne Darlen re-created it to perfection.

The level of detail in the skull is incredible. It’s almost an exact match to the one in the show. The shape and eyes are spot on and it even has the same fracture. But let’s not forget about the shades of green in her hair and in the outfit, which couldn’t be more perfect either.

The red make-up smeared across her face was a nice touch as well. It looks exactly like Nelliel Tu’s trademark scar.

Julianne Darlen hasn’t missed a thing in this cosplay. She even included a second shot with a different expression, showcasing Nelliel Tu’s conflicting innocence and strength.

All in all, it was an incredible piece. It’s already drawn a lot of attention on social media, and it’s bound to gain even more as time goes on.
