A cosplayer on Twitter has amazed Valorant fans with her stunningly accurate real life version of Sniper, using some cool editing techniques to make a super atmospheric shot.

Valorant is a tactical first-person shooter released officially in June 2020. The cast of characters within the game is varied, each having unique abilities and aesthetics with hints of neon, which has made for the perfect opportunity for cosplayers.

Viper is a poison-themed character who can emit toxic clouds and poison screens as part of her unique abilities. To match her chemical warfare, she has a bright green aesthetic mixed in with the greys of her bodysuit, and her effortless coolness makes her appealing to cosplay.

Kelsey Remige is one such cosplayer, who took on the challenge of recreating Viper in real life, and she more than knocked it out of the park.

Her interpretation is almost an exact match for the original. Her hair is glossy and dark brown, straight with a slight curve at the ends to frame her face.

That, along with her shiny black face mask, gives her a smouldering look, green eyes looking straight down the camera lens.

Her bodysuit is form fitting and full of elaborate detail. Black stripes overlay the neon trims that outline the bodice, with every material a slightly different texture, the lighting in the image just skimming the surface of the costume and offering a glance into how much detail has been implemented into the outfit.

The finishing touch was a cloud of green gas that circulated her body, pulling the image together and making the details of the outfit pop.

Kelsey absolutely blew fans away with her stunning Viper, with the post on Twitter now accumulating over 6,000 likes and 400 retweets, a decidedly successful cosplay.

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.

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!
