Cosplay aficionado Liz Katz has created an incredible Borderlands 3 cosplay that will blow your mind with its accuracy and precision.

The third instalment of the hit Borderlands series finally arrived on September 13, and fans have been going crazy for it ever since, especially since it contains a bunch of pop culture references such as Rick & Morty, One Punch Man, and even an homage to Twitch star Dr Disrespect.

Talented cosplayer Liz Katz has also jumped aboard the BL3 hype train, and debuted an amazing outfit that is so incredibly accurate, it looks like she stepped right out of the game itself.

A spot-on Borderlands 3 cosplay

On September 18, Katz uploaded a lengthy clip to Twitter where she showed off her rendition of a Psycho from the looter shooter, who is one of the game’s most iconic characters.

Shot by Los Angeles-based videographer ‘EccentricErick’, the video wasted no time in showcasing all of the cosplay’s intricate details, from the cel-shaded body and clothing paint, to an accurate recreation of the character’s deadly Buzz Axe weapon.

The cosplayer even sports a spot-on Psycho mask with piercing light-up eyes, which looks like it could have been sucked straight from the game and put into real life – it’s that detailed.

To top it all off, the clip seems to have been shot in some sort of industrial setting, which really helps to tie the whole aesthetic together to make it look as real as possible.

Liz Katz is actually in Borderlands 3

The 31-year-old actually made her video game debut with Borderlands 3 as she plays a small voice acting role as a side character called ‘Bloodshine’.

Bloodshine is a murderous Psycho who players encounter in the Proof of Wife sidequest in Lectra City after completing the ‘Kill Killavolt’ substory. 

In the mission, which can be picked up from the Lectra City bounty board, the foe’s lover asks for help in rescuing their beau in exchange for a hostage they’ve captured – and it turns deadly.

While the model only has a small role, she smashes the part, and her Psycho cosplay just goes to show how much she loves the looter shooter series.

League cosplayer descends from the heavens as amazing Dragonslayer Diana

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
