Twitch star STPeach impressed Valorant fans after showing up to her broadcast while dressed as the game’s more poisonous agent, Viper.

The cosplay, which STPeach pulled off perfectly, nails the character’s look to the point where she’d be the talk any sort of comic convention – if they were still going.

For starters, the streamer found the perfect wig to resemble Viper’s flowing hair. Quite a change of pace from her typical blonde look.

Next, she added a gas mask very similar to the one the character from Riot’s tactical FPS uses.

Attire wise, STPeach spared no expense and really captured the green bodysuit’s flare. Everything from the yellow icons to the belt are included in this ensemble.

Best of all, the cosplay even included the agent’s gas canisters and grenades. “I have these!” she told her chat while showing off her abilities.

Once she showed off her outfit for her stream, she posed and in her best Viper impression mimicked the agent’s voice. “Don’t get in my way!” she laughed, getting into character.

Overall, the whole outfit was really well done. And what’s better than just cosplaying as a Valorant character? Cosplaying as a Valorant character while playing as said character, of course.

While her games didn’t go super well, the streamer did have some moments of greatness along the way.

At one point, already down 0-6 in the half, STPeach helped her team break the shutdown by scoring a nice headshot and activating her Ultimate to ensure the defuse came in.

“Let’s go!” she exclaimed before copying her agent’s voice once more. “Don’t get in my way!”

It’s pretty clear that Viper is easily one of the most popular Valorant agents so far and with Riot planning to release even more, there’s no telling if another character will peak STPeach’s interest enough she’ll be cosplaying as them in the future.

Writer, Director, and Try Guys member Eugene Lee Yang has absolutely blown Avatar: The Last Airbender fans away with his flawless cosplays, recreating not just Azula but Zuko too.

Since rising to internet fame with his work on YouTube series ‘the Try Guys,’ Eugene Lee Yang has established himself as a creator in his own right, producing many hugely viral videos exploring LGBTQ+ and Asian-American identities.

Each year in what he describes as his ‘Asian Halloween Tradition,’ Eugene cosplays different Asian characters from popular movies, TV shows, books and more to celebrate different aspects of those cultures, and works alongside a team to flex their outstanding costume and makeup skills.

In the past, he’s recreated characters like Mulan, Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments Series, and many more dating back to Halloween of 2009 when he cosplayed Russell from the animated film UP.

But this year, Eugene and his talented team treated fans to not just one, but two Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplays, and they were both as fantastic as each other.

Eugene cosplays Zuko and Azula

First, in a post that at the time of writing has 99,000 likes, he recreated the banished prince from the Fire Nation, Zuko.

Eugene models the brilliant costume by Kinetic Cosplay perfectly, the bold oranges and reds of the fabric creating a vibrant fire-like glow, which combined with the mix of silk trims and various types of fabric give a perfectly dynamic edge to the look.

His makeup artist Arianna Blean has also reformed Zuko’s signature eye scar, the scar wax looking intricate enough to be realistic, but also with a slightly animated feel in keeping with the original art style.

To fans’ surprise, Eugene even pulled out a second Avatar look to celebrate Halloween this year, also having a go at one of the show’s most popular villains, Fire Nation princess Azula in beautiful photos taken by JD Renes.

The absolutely stunning images show the YouTube star surrounded by lightning, filling the images with a mesmerizing blue-white glow. The black and gold plates contribute to a powerful silhouette, with the wig by danekez sculpted perfectly to look like the original, even keeping with the gold hairpiece in the center of the head.

Eugene put both characters together in the same image in a post that gained 40,000 likes, and even participated in a TikTok trend where he wipes a mirror to switch between the two characters, injecting the video with electric personality.

His series of posts about the cosplays have garnered hundreds of thousands of likes all together, and has already got people excited about what Eugene will pull out of the bag next Halloween.
