They talk about German efficiency, but what about quality? Well, this Killjoy cosplay has both ⁠— getting the stylish looks of Valorant’s quirky engineer down pat in an amazing cosplay worthy of the Agent’s name.

Killjoy didn’t just arrive into Valorant quietly ⁠— she jumped right into the roster, with bright popping colors and an unforgettable accent. She’s eccentric, and you can tell that just by looking at her.

She’s been a fan favorite ⁠— especially in the cosplay department ⁠— since Day 1, equalled by only the likes of Viper. However, one cosplayer has emerged above the rest.

It’s hard to miss Killjoy, and it’d be just as hard to miss Caly’s cosplay of the German Agent too.

Of course, who better to play the German engineer than a German cosplayer. ‘Calisto.c’ took on the Valorant Agent, and honestly, her outfit will be very hard to top.

Breaking down Killjoy, there’s only so much you can do with her. You’ve got to have the bright yellow bomber jacket ⁠— patches and all ⁠— the turquoise beanie, and the skin-tight black pants. However, it’s all the trimmings that makes a cosplay truly standout.

Caly managed to hit all of those markers and more. The glasses look like a direct rip from Killjoy’s in game, and the wig is perfectly manicured. She’s got all the belts and straps the German engineer has too.

She even got decals for her laptop with the Kingdom logo to fit right in as the German engineer. It’s just like a slice of Future Earth, right here on regular Earth.

They even did the photoshoot in Berlin, using the graffiti street art as part of the canvas. It really adds another level to the cosplay.

Of course, Caly has got heads turning in the Valorant community. It’s one of the most popular in the game’s short history, and it’s easy to see why. It’s simple, yet hits all the marks perfectly, and that’s why fans are in love with it.

World of Warcraft has inspired a whole collection of amazing cosplays, but one cosplayer truly brings WoW into reality with her amazing Kyrestia cosplay. 

When it comes to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft universe, there are limitless possibilities to create amazing cosplays. The huge array of iconic characters, coupled with the impressive customization for your own hero or villain, makes the title perfect for passionate fans.

We recently saw cosplayer Cinderys create an amazing Sylvanas cosplay just in time for the release of Shadowlands, which in turn managed to score her Blizzard’s seal of approval.

This time around the subject of this amazing cosplay is Sylvanas’ polar opposite, Kyrestia the Firstborne, the ruler of Bastion.

Kyrestia has become one of The Ascended’s most iconic faces.

Cosplayer ascends as Kyrestia

2021 has brought with it a lot of insane cosplays, but this one is certainly one of the most memorable so far.

Artist PlexiCosplay (Plexi) has outdone herself with this beautiful transformation. Having painted herself aqua from head to toe, she can be seen adorned in Kyrestia’s iconic white and gold outfit whilst channeling the Ascended queen’s angelic nature.

What your eyes are immediately drawn to are the wings though. Mirroring the sky blue of her skin, their construction is perfect. Tipped with gold trims that tie in with her vestments and stunning recreation of the warrior’s crown, Plexi literally is Kyrestia.

WoW fans are stunned

Considering the wings are, according the Plexi, “15 feet long,” it’s safe to say that fans can’t miss this cosplay.

It’s the wings that have really gotten attention. One fan’s hilarious comment simply wrote: “the wind: I’m about to end this woman’s whole career,” to which Plexi responded “YOU NAILED IT.”

Another respondent was equally as humorous, writing “Kyrestia flight 77 you are cleared for takeoff, proceed to runway 4.”

All of these comments though praised this amazing cosplay, with one comment summing it up: “This blew my mind!!! I thought someone cropped the Archon out and pasted her onto some road!”

It’s safe to say that Plexi has truly embodied the fan favorite Ascended. She’s not only radiant, but emits a ‘don’t mess with me’ aura. We can’t wait to see her next WoW cosplay, as if she keeps going like she’ll be the queen of not just Bastion, but the WoW cosplay scene in no time!
