Overwatch has some of the most talented creators in all of gaming, but an incredibly executed Pharah cosplay could be one of the best designs to ever come out of the game’s community.

While the Blizzard team-shooter features a wide cast of unique heroes to choose from, the cosplay community has been constantly hard at work to bringing those characters to life with insane costumed reimaginings.

One particular cosplay that’s been taking the Overwatch subreddit by storm is the design that ‘medhavi321’ put together for Pharah’s legendary Lunar New Year skin, Qinglong.

Medhavi321 RedditMany fans of the cosplay thought this incredible shot was almost indistinguishable from the game.

As with any Pharah design, there are a lot of individual parts to make in order to bring any of the Security Officer’s Raptora Mark VI suits together. But medhavi321 was able to do that and much more with her take on the DPS heroine.

The cosplay has everything from Pharah’s jade dragon helmet with accompanying shoulder-mounted claws to a full-sized Rocket Launcher that also has a dragon’s head fixed on the weapon’s muzzle with an illuminated mouth.

For added measure, medhavi321 even put on striking green contacts, that seem to glow like her custom-made chest piece that has the symbol of the Dragon lit up at the center.

People on the Reddit thread were thoroughly impressed with her interpretation, with some saying they could hardly tell the difference from ‘medhavi321’s cosplay and Pharah’s in-game render.

“If not [for] the face because it’s too realistic I would say it’s just a screenshot from the game,” Reddit user ‘B-M-V’ said. “Literally, I thought it’s in game! Awesome work!”

Overwatch cosplays are getting more impressive by the day

Pharah cosplayers have been stepping up their game lately. People in the Overwatch community have been really showing off their talents in designing a suit with some being downright awe-inspiring costumes.

Even people in the game have been giving cosplays a unique twist that makes even the simplest of designs brimming with character.

While there are backlogs of incredible cosplays for Overwatch’s shooter, medhavi321’s Qinglong Pharah easily holds claim to one of the best renditions ever.

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!
