Overwatch hero Junkrat is a mischievous fellow, and one cosplayer managed to capture that spirit perfect with her take on his Jester skin.

Overwatch cosplayers prove time and time again that the game’s community is one of the most talented out of them all, and it’s rare to see a day go by without someone showing off their latest creation.

Instagram cosplay duo ‘Shock Jockey Cosplay‘ uploaded their take on the legendary Jester Junkrat skin, and it’s incredibly accurate to the game.

Jester Junkrat brought to life

Sisters Ally and Caitlin uploaded their take on the hero’s Jester skin onto their Instagram page on August 15. While is unclear which sibling is in the photograph, it’s hard to deny that the outfit doesn’t look like it’s been pulled from the game itself – it’s that accurate.

The outfit matches the Overwatch skin perfectly, with the detailed Rip Tire sitting on the sister’s back. She is even holding Junkrat’s detonator, as she looks ready to blow some sh*t up.

Blizzard EntertainmentYou wouldn’t want to see Jester Junkrat at the end of your bed at night, that’s for sure.

The makeup is down to a tee too, with Junkrat’s classic Jester makeup painted on like a pro. It even has the smile lines extended like Batman’s Joker.

The cosplayer’s facial expression is really what ties the look together though, with a mischievous smile to really echo the character’s cheeky personality.

The sisters have cosplayed Overwatch before

This isn’t the only time that Shock Jockey Cosplay have cosplayed Overwatch or Junkrat before. A post on August 13 shows the duo in Roadhog and Junkrat’s regular outfits, and just like the Jester one, they are incredibly accurate.

With Roadhog’s, obviously it’s difficult to make and carry a fake belly if you don’t carry the weight yourself, but the sister pulls off the outfit perfectly regardless. She even has his signature tattoo etched across her front.

A Princess Mononoke cosplayer brought the film’s protagonist San to life with a stunning costume. The artist’s breathtaking transformation into the Studio Ghibli character will leave fans speechless.

In 1997, renowned director Hayao Miyazaki debuted his groundbreaking seventh film, Princess Mononoke. The environmentalist-themed story was so popular, it’s still the eighth highest grossing movie of all time in Japan.

A talented cosplayer celebrated the influential anime by bringing it to life with a jaw-dropping outdoor photoshoot. The artist’s incredible take on wolf girl San is so good, it’s almost as if the protagonist has clawed her way out of the screen.

The film centers on protagonist Ashitaka, who leaves his village after tragically becoming infected by a corrupted spirit. The banished prince embarks on a quest to look for a cure and confront the curse that corrupted the animal that wandered into his home.

Cosplayer ‘Jennifer Sonntag’ brought the movie’s second lead character, Princess San, to life with her stunning cosplay which she shared on Instagram. Photographer ‘jospixelart’ captured the artist posing in the heroine’s iconic white and blue outfit next to a wolf.

Jenny nailed San’s signature attire, which includes a white fur cape that drapes over her back as well as her red and gold warrior mask which she uses to cover her face while battling against human enemies. She even included her scarlet facepaint which sits under each eye.

In another shot posted on her social media, the artist re-created a scene from the Ghibi film where the lead character sits on a rock. Jen looks ready to fight with her wolf family as she holds her prop dagger while having her headdress down. The outdoor backdrop gorgeously ties the whole thing together and could easily be mistaken for a screenshot from the film.

Despite releasing over 23 years ago, Princess Mononoke still continues to be one of the most influential anime films of all time. Its dark themes and gritty depiction of violence was a departure for Miyazaki’s usually child-friendly projects.

Those looking to catch the classic movie are in luck as it can currently be watched right now on HBO’s streaming service MAX. Also in 2019, Studio Ghibli struck a deal with Apple TV and Amazon to sell all of their theatrical releases digitally for the very first time.
