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.

Similarly, Overwatch cosplayers have been getting so good, Barbaric characters in the game have been polished and masterfully brought to life.

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.

Attack on Titan’s Eren Yeager is a popular choice among cosplayers, but a recent effort re-created the character perfectly, and the pictures have gone viral. 

Attack on Titan is one of the darkest and strangest mainstream animes in recent times. However, that hasn’t stopped it from becoming an incredibly popular smash-hit. If anything, it’s probably the reason why.

Nobody ever thought they’d be into a story about human soldiers locked into a battle with over-sized human-looking monsters called Titans who eat people.

Yet, here we all are, and we’re hooked. 

Attack on Titan has many interesting characters, but it revolves around Eren Yeager, the main protagonist. He started as an impulsive and hardheaded peasant with a burning despite to help eliminate Titans.

But he quickly grew into a capable member of the Scout Regiment and even stumbled upon a special power of his own. For that reason, he’s become a fan-favorite among fans and cosplayers alike.

A cosplayer named Noah Lance decided to step into Eren Yeager’s boots. They’re massive ones to fill, but he did such a great job, the photos have gone viral. The pictures have already generated almost 10,000 likes on Instagram.

“I hate people when they’re not polite,” he said, in reference to one of Eren Yeager’s quotes from the show. “If you end up on my table, then it serves you right.”

Noah’s outfit looks like the real deal. It has everything from the khaki-colored shirt, brown belt, brown straps to a replica necklace. The dual swords are the best feature, though, and they round it off nicely.

There’s also a second shot that provides a more zoomed-out view of the boots, straps, and pants. Noah’s definitely put in a lot of attention to detail, and it shows.

“And I’m hoping that you will see yourself like I see you,” he said.

Attack on Titan can be dark and grueling at times, but it still provides endless opportunities for fans and cosplayers to shine. Noah’s Eren Yeager cosplay is a testament to that.

The fourth and final series kicks off on December 7.

It marks the beginning of the end for the show, but there’s no doubt Attack on Titan fans will be in for a roller-coaster ride along the way.
