Twitch streamer Lily ‘LilyPichu’ Ki stunned her OfflineTV housemates when she posted a “cosplay” of Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys that is so accurate, it will have you seeing double.

Pokimane is one of the most popular streamers in the world and an entertainment juggernaut, with millions of followers across her Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube accounts.

However, the Twitch star was left floored when her friend and housemate LilyPichu teamed up with renowned artist Stella Chuu and pulled off the perfect cosplay of her.

LilyPichu’s perfect Pokimane “cosplay”

Lily collaborated with prolific cosplayer Stella Chuuu, and surprised her fans when she posted a picture to Twitter on January 23 with the caption “I cosplayed as poki today.”

The streamer absolutely nailed Pokimane’s signature style, and looks almost identical to her, even down to her hand placement as she perfectly recreated one of the 23-year-old’s popular poses.

Despite the crazy photo where she could pass off as Poki’s twin, the streaming personality showed her sense of humor when she admitted “This was some photo app [by the way], my face not that slim,” before posting an up close shot of her face.

The OfflineTV crew seemed shocked by the cosplay, with William ‘Scarra’ Li taking a break from his vacation to reply. “I’m on vacation but I had to f**king tweet to say what the f**k,” he said, stunned by how much she looked like the Twitch star.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
