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.

Demon Slayer cosplayer’s real life Love Pillar

While the dark anime largely centers on the Kamado siblings, the last half of Season 1 heavily focuses on the fierce warriors of the Demon Slayer corps. These strong swordsman are called Pillars, and they are able to control their breath and unleash incredible powers against their foes.

Cosplayer Melodi Kızılgün went viral after bringing the Love Pillar Mitsuri to life with a jaw-dropping costume. The artist accurately depicted the character’s black and white Demon Slayer corps uniform, while faithfully mirroring her striking pink and green braided hair.

Photographer ‘toyfromearth’ captured Melodi posing with the heroine’s iconic katana, which has a blue hilt and pink hearts underneath the fabric. Recreating a scene from the show, she readies to slay demons with an incredibly detailed prop of Kanroji’s deadly weapon.
