D.Va has become one of Overwatch’s most beloved heroes. The Korean tank has attracted cosplayers far and wide, but this specific rendition truly channels Baby D.Va.

D.Va’s K-Pop icon status transcends virtual boundaries into real life. The adorable tank is one of Overwatch’s most sought after heroes, being picked up in pretty much every pro and casual game.

One fan recently went viral for creating a D.Va Nerf button that activates her Self-Destruct in game when pressed, making it easily the coolest controller that we’ve ever seen.

In a slightly more traditional method of paying homage to the Korean icon, this cosplayer has created a flawless cosplay that will remind us all why we “love D.Va.”

Cute D.Va cosplay

A recent cosplay from cosplayer Enafox (Ena) has reminded fans why the hero has become such a fan favorite in the Overwatch universe.

In a recent post, the cosplayer stated that this was a “reshoot” of a previous cosplay, and this one certainly packs a bit of a punch. Seen sporting the hero’s iconic blue jumpsuit which is decked out with her iconic bunny logo and metallic neck armor, Ena really channels the K-Pop idol.

The details are awesome, as everything from her Bunny Blaster to the sponsors on the leg of her jumpsuit perfectly mirror her in-game appearance. The iconic silver headset frames perfectly recreated hair and makeup, and at first glance you might mistake the pictures for an illustration instead of a cosplay.

All of D.Va’s fiesty attitude is encapsulated in Ena’s pose as well. Replicating the iconic victory pose where she lies on top of her MEKA and blows a bright pink bubble with bubblegum, the background and her pose come together to remind fans why the character is so adorable.

Avatar: The Last Airbender fans love Toph for her tomboyish vibe despite being raised like a princess, but a brilliant cosplayer managed to capture her elegant side by creating a refined version of her usual outfit.

The heroes in Avatar: The Last Airbender all bring something unique to the table. However, Toph is particularly remarkable because she managed to become an earth-bending master despite being blind since birth.

Initially, she wanted to prove to her parents that blindness didn’t make her weak. But she became one of the most powerful characters in the show and a valuable Team Avatar member.

Toph is a popular choice among cosplayers too. But while we’ve seen everything from her traditional get-up to an elegant dress she once wore, it’s hard to find one more unique than Emma J.I.Q Rubini’s Art Nouveau Toph.

“You see nothing once, and you’ve seen it a thousand times,” she said, referring to a quote. “Y’all remember when we used to have cons? I’m so happy I went to Katsucon this year since it ended up being the only one I went to.”

“Here’s the cosplay I made for it,” she added. “Art Nouveau Toph! I am incredibly proud of the work I put into it, and I’m happy I got to wear it to such a pretty con! One day maybe I’ll wear it again.”

Emma managed to capture all the crucial elements of Toph’s everyday outfit. It includes the green and beige garments, the hairstyle tucked under a headband with a flower, and of course, contact lenses to match her eyes.

However, she’s added some exotic details in line with a style known as Art Nouveau. It combines elegantly woven tapestries with encrusted jewels and other bits and pieces to add some class.

Cosplayers and their fans know how much time and effort it takes to re-create an outfit faithfully. However, it takes creativity, talent, and courage to add your flair. Emma nailed it, and the thousands of likes she’s getting are a testament to that.
