A Korean cosplayer has pulled off the most realistic Pharah cosplay you’ll ever see, nailing the full outfit from head-to-toe in this perfect rendition of Overwatch’s sniper from the skies.

Pharah would be one of the hardest Overwatch characters to cosplay, given the amount of armor you’d have to make to recreate the Egyptian Justicar.

However, Korean cosplay ‘Oz’ has shown off one of the most realistic Pharah cosplays we have ever seen, nailing every tiny detail from head-to-toe.

While this cosplay dates a bit back to 2018, it’s a timeless look that is still yet to be rivalled by other cosplayers when it comes to the base skin.

The armor is perfectly crafted, down to the little engravings on the shoulder pads. The hairstyle even looks straight out of the character select screen,  doing up Pharah’s signature twin-braid as well.

Oz didn’t stop there though — she went the full nine-yards with the helmet and weapon, making a all-out costume that reflects how Pharah looks in-game. It’s one of the most complete Pharah cosplays out there, and has gotten praise from thousands of fans.

Oz has done a number of gaming-inspired cosplays in the past, focusing primarily on League of Legends, World of Warcraft, and Overwatch. From Officer Vi to Whitemane, Oz always goes about making her costumes look as realistic as possible.

She was even a featured cosplayer at the 2018 League of Legends World Championship in Incheon, Korea, showcasing her Akali, Arcade Sona, and Pool Party cosplays throughout the major tournament.

It’s with good reason too, her costumes are a step above most that we’ve seen, with brilliant attention to detail no matter the game or character.

If you are planning on designing your own Pharah cosplay for your next convention, taking a few tips from Oz’s design will get you far.

It’s a notoriously hard challenge to undertake given the amount of detail that has to go into such a heavily-armored costume, but one look at this shows you that anything is possible.

One of Jujutsu Kaisen’s most iconic characters is Satoru Gojo, the mysterious teacher at Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College. One cosplayer has brought the sorcerer to life with an insane outfit. 

It’s safe to say that the anime universe beautifully intertwines with the cosplay scene. With a whole host of characters and iconic titles, the Japanese cartoon genre has become a global phenomenon.

Jujutsu Kaisen has become one of the most popular animes of 2020, and has dominated streaming website Crunchyroll for the last few months.

The fantasy series features one character that has managed to attract quite a bit of attention though, and that’s Satoru Gojo, teacher and Jujutsu Sorcerer extraodinare.

A magical Satoru cosplay

One of the reasons that cosplayers have flocked to Gojo is his unique style, which sees his eyes covered by a black eyemask. An outfit posted on Instagram by weian_vann (Vann) really brings the character to life though.

Not only is the outfit a perfect replica, Vann has nailed the iconic silver hair that has become so synonymous with the Cursed Energy master.

There’s a sense of foreboding around him though, and we can imagine the anime-style purple smoke kicking up around him to imply that he’s not one to mess with. The first image sees him posed on a backward chair in a stature that’s both playful yet menacing.

Fans are obsessed

The Chinese cosplayer’s image has almost 62k likes, and the comment section is filled with a whole host of Jujutsu fans heaping praise upon him for being able to bring the iconic character to life.

One fan has written “NO WAYYYYY MY HEARTTTT,” reacting in a similar way to many of the sorcerer’s lovestruck students.

Another fan commented on Vann’s masterful recreation of Gojo’s iconic silver hair, asking “Wow! How long did it take to get the hair like that? It looks great!”

A final commenter praised the entire outfit, writing that Vann “did so good” and that the cosplay “looks so realistic!”

So it’s safe to say that fans are really loving Vann’s rendition of Gojo, because not only does he perfectly recreate the outfit but he really becomes the character. As the anime progresses it’ll be exciting to see if he does any more magical cosplays, but in the mean time we can happily swoon away over this one!
