Overwatch fans have been dressing up as their favorite heroes since the game was released in May 2016, but this new Brigitte cosplay might be the best of the bunch. 

Cosplays have become a popular phenomenon in the world of video games and have become a large part of gaming culture too, with players replicating the styles of their favorite characters. 

However, not many will top the Brigitte cosplay which was modelled by a member of Overwatch’s online community. 

Reddit user Arorea, who has over 6,000 followers on Instagram, is known for posting photographs of herself wearing a number of different video game-related outfits. 

Her latest post on March 7 has attracted a lot of attention on social media – with the Instagram post post amassing over 10,000 likes at the time of writing.

Arorea also took part in a photoshoot with photographer Josue Artavia, who goes by the name of Mojo on Instagram, where she featured alongside some other models. The cosplayer posted her photo to the Overwatch subreddit as well.

Some cosplays for other games have been known to cause quite a stir, though, as seen with Kayyybearxo and her cosplay of Apex Legends character Lifeline, which some argued was a little too risqué.

However, in this case, Arorea has received mostly positive feedback from her post, with some redditors calling her makeup “great” and others complimenting on other details. “Your hair is the big winner here, I think we all agree,” another posted.

A My Hero Academia cosplayer made waves on Instagram after creating the perfect depiction of hot-headed character Katsuki Bakugou. The artist’s explosive take on the protagonist will have fans feeling the heat.

Few animes transcend the level of popularity that My Hero Academia has. Its story about a high school that trains teenagers with superpowers called quirks has become an absolute worldwide phenomenon.

A cosplayer celebrated the franchise by sharing their true-to-life take on popular character Katsuki Bakugou. The artist looks so much like him, it’s almost as if the fiery student has burned his way out of the screen.

My Hero Academia cosplayer’s perfect Bakugou

While most of the anime centers on main protagonist Izuku Midoriya, the series quickly introduces a diverse cast once the character enrolls at U.A High. One of those is his childhood friend and rival Bakugou. 

Cosplayer Soph ‘sophieriiis’ went viral on Instagram after sharing their mind-blowing transformation into the hot-headed Katsuki. The artist brought the student’s explosive quirk to life with the help of photographer ‘jacob.cr2‘, who captured them posing with flames shooting from their hands.

In the series, Bakugou is able to store up sweat into his grenade shaped wrist guards, which Sophie has faithfully portrayed with life-size props. The artist also perfectly mirrored the hero’s large metal knee pads and neck brace which he uses to protect himself from explosions.
