Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys was blown away after a fan brought her to life in Fortnite with her very own custom skin. The streamer was floored by how much it looked like her.

For many, Pokimane has been one the faces of Twitch over the last few years. The Moroccan-Canadian is the platform’s top female streamer, and pulls in millions of viewers to her channel.

During her August 1 upload, the Twitch streamer revealed to viewers that a fan had created her in Fortnite with an actual in-game render. “Someone actually went ahead and created an in-game model of a Poki skin!” she said excitedly.

The star was blown away by how spot on the creation captured her hairstyle. “It’s so hard to render hair like mine! Because it’s not fully curly but it ain’t straight. It’s like wavy and curly,” she said, before explaining that the creator had to use two hair models on top of each other to achieve the look.

The custom skin even featured Pokimane’s official merchandise as the outfit. Floored by it, she exclaimed, “This is insanely well made. Before this, I was like ‘yeah, a Fortnite skin would be cool!’ But then I saw this, and was like “F**k, now I need it! This is really freaking cool!”

This isn’t the first time one of Poki’s talented fans has created her in Fortnite. Back in January, artist ‘D3NNI’ went viral after uploading their concept of the Twitch streamer having her own Icon Series skin in the battle royale.

Icon Series was launched in January, which brings content creators and stars to the game. Popular streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was the first to get his very own in-game skin.

While Pokimane only has an emote so far, the personality seems interested in eventually having her likeness brought to the game after seeing what her fans are able to whip up.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
