Overwatch cosplayer swoops into the fight as Snow Owl Ana

It may be finally approaching summer, but that didn’t stop one Overwatch cosplayer from showing off their incredible Snow Owl Ana creation.

We’re currently in the midst of the 2020 Anniversary event, which has introduced its own batch of great skins, but cosplayer Racquel Kogarashi decided to go back in time for their Overwatch project.

Ana’s “Snow Owl” skin was first introduced during the Winter Wonderland event all the way back in 2017, and Racquel’s take on the unique outfit might be one of the best we’ve seen since it came out.

To start, the modified Biotic Rifle looks spot on, with the white fabric around the barrel that comes with Ana’s wintery skin – which can make aiming very interesting.

Feathers on the bottom and sleeves of the jacket are also incredibly accurate, and almost a direct match to how the Snow Owl skin looks in-game.

Even though this Snow Owl might be out of it’s natural habitat, it’s still a great-looking cosplay.

The mask is what sets this Ana skin apart, and Racquel’s cosplay is no different, with piercing blue eye lights inside of the facemask to give it that little extra detail.

She even included the owl claws on Ana’s boots, which is just another example of the amount of detail that needs to go into a great cosplay like this.

“It’s been a dream cosplay of mine ever since the skin came out and I finally did it!” Racquel revealed about her Snow Owl skin. “I still have to fix some things about it, but I am super proud of it.”

Unfortunately, Ana didn’t get a new skin for this year’s Anniversary event, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of material to work with.

In the time since Ana’s Snow Owl skin was released, the hero has had multiple skins including the “Bastet” and “Cabana” looks unlocked,  which should be plenty to keep Racquel busy making great Ana cosplays for the foreseeable future.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
