Blizzard is celebrating Overwatch’s 2020 Lunar New Year event with an incredible Brigitte cosplay commissioned by their studio in China.

Brigitte’s “Opera” skin is one of the highlights of the Lunar New Year event this year (if you play the support hero at least), turning her into a gilded Chinese Opera performer, as the name suggests.

The Lunar New Year is a huge celebration in Asian countries, so Blizzard China commissioned an amazing cosplay for Brigitte’s new skin to celebrate the event.

Who knew Brigitte was so flexible?

The cosplay was originally posted on Blizzard China’s official Weibo page on January 17, but unfortunately, they didn’t seem to include the name of the cosplayer, herself.

Brigitte’s Opera skin makes for a stunning and colorful display, and seeing the skin brought into the real world really emphasizes the amount of detail included in the outfit.

The cosplay’s mace looks exactly like it does in Overwatch.

It even includes Brigitte’s mace, which is absolutely huge, seemingly bigger than the cosplayers head, with her hat included.

Her armor, much like the in-game skin, is red with blue highlights and some white fur near the shoulder, while the blue roses on her armor pull it all together.

There wasn’t any information provided on how long it took to put together this masterpiece, but based on how detailed it is, it must have been a daunting task for the craftswoman.

The cosplay is the closest one can get to Opera Brigitte in real life.

As far as Overwatch cosplays go, this is definitely one of the best we’ve seen so far in 2020, and it doesn’t hurt that Blizzard had a hand in making it happen.

We didn’t see too many official Overwatch cosplays in 2019, either for Sigma’s release or for BlizzCon 2019, but hopefully this is a sign fans will start seeing more as we head into 2020.

Apex Legends cosplayer plunders loot on Olympus as gunslinger Loba

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.
