A Pokémon cosplayer brought Espeon to life with a beautifully detailed outfit that will make you wish the adorable critter was actually real.

Espeon is a Psychic-type Pokémon from Generation II, and is evolved from Eevee when using a Moon Shard or with high friendship during the morning or the day. It made its first appearance in the Gold and Silver games for the Nintendo Game Boy Color.

Cosplayer Spring from ‘White Spring Cosplay’ took her love of the adorable creature and turned it into a fully fledged outfit – the results are amazing.

The Pokémon CompanyEspeon is the popular Psychic type evolution for Eevee.

While it can be difficult to pull off a look based around something that’s not human, Spring nailed her rendition of Espeon, taking the creature’s lilac and pink colors and turning it into an amazing costume.

She created a waist sash and a hood with the Pokémon’s ears on to mimic its design, but also used two red gems – one on her forehead and one on her chest – to really pull the look together.

In a previous Instagram post, the cosplayer revealed that the outfit only took less than two days to make – something you wouldn’t know by looking at the costume because of how detailed it is.

The inclusion of multiple types of fabric come together to create the illusion of weeks worth of work, and really gives the cosplay a polished finish.

Spring has also cosplayed Umbreon before, another evolution of Eevee. Instead of using a Sun Shard to evolve, players must use a Moon Shard or high friendship during the night.

Her cosplay of the other evolution is just as impressive, and again, she used a hood to replicate the Pokémon’s ears.

The Norwegian cosplayer’s creations prove popular as she boasts almost 27,000 followers on her Instagram page, with many fans commenting praise on the photos she posts.

Pokémon Sword and Shield are due to be released for Nintendo Switch on November 15, so players can be sure to see many more incredible cosplays nearer the time.

A skilled Instagram cosplayer has recreated one of My Hero Academia’s primary antagonists, Himiko Toga, in extraordinary detail, bringing her villain attire to life with their amazing look.

The anime My Hero Academia was released in 2016, and has since then scooped up an enormous fan base of people who adore the show’s perfect blend of action and interesting characters.

Each character has a super power called a ‘Quirk,’ and this ability  is unique to each person, and offers them a range of boosts and characteristics that help show off their individuality.

That goes for both protagonists and antagonists, and one of the primary villains, Himiko Toga, has ended up becoming somewhat of a fan-favorite for her sadistic personality with its own unique charms.

Himiko Toga is a dangerous villain in My Hero Academia, despite her innocent look.

When in her usual form, Toga sports a baggy school uniform look, which many cosplayers have done an extraordinary job of recreating. But the character’s villain uniform can be harder to pull off and maintain Toga’s confidence, with clunky machinery fixed around her neck.

But cosplayer layvendercos has done a fantastic job of donning the iconic Toga look, and certainly looks as though they could play the role in a live-action version of the show.

Reminiscent of Toga’s school attire, this cosplayer wears knee length marl gray socks with some brown leather brogues, their legs dangling from their seat in one image as part of the character’s persona.

This is paired with a black skirt, and Toga’s token cream-colored jumper, which looks oversized as part of the original look, giving a slightly cute appearance.

However, this cute school look is directly contrasted with Toga’s villain attire. Thick canisters are hung from their neck, along with the classic black smile mask. Fastened to their legs and waist are green knife boxes, with one knife clasped firmly in their hand.

Their blonde hair is styled to match Toga’s voluminous space buns, with chunky bangs falling either side of their face to frame it, and perfectly bringing the look together.

Layvendercos certainly did an incredible job as Himiko Toga, and will have their followers excited to see what may but up next for the cosplayer.
