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.

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.

Ever seen a League of Legends cosplay so good that Riot can’t help but share it with the world? Well, now you have, with Sweet Angel’s take on Akali taking League players by storm.

Akali is one of League of Legends’ most popular characters to cosplay. Whether it be her default skin, or the mega-popular K/DA variant, people love to show off as the Ionian assassin.

However, few manage to grab the eyes of Riot as much as Sweet Angel. The talented Italian cosplayer decided to take on Akali as her most recent project, and while the costume looks simple, it was anything but.

Akali is one of the most popular League champions to cosplay, but few catch the eyes of Riot.

“I thought it was a simple costume, but it required a lot more attention and time than I thought,” she told fans on her website.

It took Sweet Angel about 100 hours all up to create the Akali cosplay ⁠— and you can see every bit of hard work and time that went into it. From the handmade wig, to the dress, and even Akali’s smoke bombs, Sweet Angel didn’t miss a beat.

Everything that you see was basically handmade. Sweet Angel sewed all of the fabrics together, stitched everything up, and made it tailored not only to herself, but true to life to Akali’s design.

She even designed Akali’s signature Kana, using EVA foam so she can carry it around without too much hassle.

She added every detail to the weapon like she did the costume too, from the leather handle all the way down to the marks and blemishes on the battle-worn blade.

The cosplay is so good that even the official League of Legends account couldn’t help but react. Sweet Angel got a retweet on the cosplay from the near five million follower account, and they don’t hand those out lightly.

As for her next cosplay, Sweet Angel hasn’t revealed her plans just yet. However, she’s got a few more shoots on the way, and if they’re anything like this Akali cosplay, they’ll be worth a gander.
