The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is nearly here, causing gamers all over the world to burst with excitement for the title’s reimagining — and even cosplayers are getting in on the hype.

Standing as one of the most popular games of all time, Square Enix’s timeless classic boasts a wide array of iconic characters, including protagonist Cloud Strife, Aerith, and antagonist Sephiroth, among others.

However, few are as well-loved as Tifa Lockhart, who, thanks to her popularity, has made appearances in numerous Final Fantasy games and media throughout the series’ lifetime.

Tifa Lockhart is one of Final Fantasy 7’s most iconic characters, hailed as a popular favorite among fans of the game.

She seems to be a hit with the cosplay community, as well, with a number of top-tier costumers creating their own take on Final Fantasy’s femme fatale — and with the game’s Remake already being released in certain regions, hype around the character is more explosive than ever.

Thus, cosplayer Angie Strelnikova brought out her version of Tifa in celebration of the Remake, debuting the outfit in late 2019 and continuing to promote her creation as the title draws ever nearer.

Cosplayer Angie Strelnikova debuted her own take on Tifa Lockhart in honor of the FF7 Remake’s release.

True to Tifa’s classic look, Angie boasts her white tanktop, skirt, black thigh-high socks and battle-ready gloves, just in case some Shinra thugs need a butt-kicking.

At the price of possible neck pain, Angie even stayed true to Tifa’s iconic long, black hair, a feature that was notably shortened in the Advent Children movie due to how long and thick it was to render.

Strelnikova’s Tifa cosplay hits all the right notes, with the costumer even recreating one of the character’s iconic poses as highlighted by the Remake’s key artwork.

The cosplayer also shared an impressive before-and-after transformation photo, showing just how different she looks in her Tifa getup as opposed to her normal look — and it’s safe to say that she nailed the AVALANCHE member’s style.

Although the Final Fantasy 7 Remake has already been launched in some regions, the game officially releases for the United States on April 10, leaving American players chomping at the bit for a chance at experiencing one of gaming’s most historic titles for a second time.

Considering how impressive its first-looks have already been, fans can rest assured that it’ll be a feast for the eyes — something cosplayers are already getting excited about.


League of Legends cosplayer ready to rebel as Vastayan “baddy” Xayah

League of Legends cosplayer Wanderlustica, who made a name for herself as a cosplay extraordinaire, has brought feisty ADC heroine Xayah to life in all her Vastayan glory ⁠— you won’t see many LoL cosplays much better than this!

In 2017, League of Legends developers Riot Games decided to try something a little outside the box for their next champion release. Instead of dropping just one character, they debuted a duo ⁠— feathery Vastayan lovers Xayah and Rakan.

The pair fit like a glove. She was an ADC, and he was her support. The pair ⁠— and their sassy love ⁠— soon became fan-faves in the League of Legends fandom.

League cosplayer rules roost as Xayah

Of course, like any League favorite, there’s been plenty of cosplay takes on the pair. Now, that includes famous cosplayer Wanderlustica, who donned a stunning costume of the LoL “baddy” for an Instagram photoshoot earlier this month.

Wanderlustica’s stunning Xayah cosplay is absolutely amazing. She’s got every detail on point, from the Vastayan’s big busy ears, to her blue and red battle robe, and even the skull adorned on her shoulder from her old victories.

The Xayah outfit also had the purple hood the ADC wears into every game on Summoner’s Rift, as well as her glorious purple and blood-red feathers. Luca rounded out the cosplay with knee-high wrap boots, and tough steel vambraces.

“I definitely loved wearing this cosplay, I love badass characters and Xayah is definitely one of them!” the Dutch cosplayer said of her League cosplay. “I’m so in love with it.”

Luca, who often makes her cosplays before showing them off on Instagram, was actually sent this Xayah outfit from Ezcosplay. The cosplay company had put the outfit together for Wanderlustica, who then added makeup and effects.

Wanderlustica is far from the only League cosplayer to unveil a fancy new outfit recently either. Ariatamagotchi got into the Halloween spirit earlier this month with a perfect take on Bewitching Nidalee, and Sweet Angel donned an awesome Akali cosplay in late September.

Luca also has more LoL projects in the works too. She’s already set to reveal her new K/DA cosplay soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that in November!
