Overwatch’s Brigitte voice actor, Matilda Smedius, showcased her cosplay skills by stepping into the role of her own character, blowing fans away.

Many of Overwatch’s heroes lend themselves perfectly to cosplay due to their elaborate designs and colorful looks.

If you take a look at the voice cast of Overwatch, you might notice that many of the actors actually look a lot like the characters they are voicing, meaning you have a good chance at seeing that hero actually brought to life.

Blizzard EntertainmentBrigitte makes for an excellent cosplay choice.

Most of the characters make for an easy cosplay, with the exception of heroes like Reinhardt, Zenyatta, Winston and several others. Brigitte is one of those characters that could be pulled off with a little bit of time and effort, if you’re going for her battle-ready look.

However, Smedius decided to go with the more casual look of Brigitte, something she’d be wearing if she weren’t in the middle of a fight, and as she was shown in her original reveal video.

Fans were seriously impressed, as the cosplay practically nails the character, and is even more impressive given Smedius says this is her first cosplay.

What we need now is a group of all the voice actors in one room, all dressed as their characters.

Overwatch is one of the most popular to cosplay. Partly because Overwatch is a worldwide phenomenon and features a vast array of characters, leaving something for practically everyone.

Heroes you wouldn’t think of seeing cosplayed in a million years, Orisa, for example, have been pulled off to great effect and it’s pretty cool to see.

And each new hero that is added opens up a new opportunity for a cosplay, so cosplayers will be excited to see what Blizzard has in store next.

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!
