Cosplayer more recently became a movie thanks to Warner Bros. Entertainment.

Pikachu has always been Pokémon’s mascot, but his new sleuthing venture has breathed new life into the chubby rodent, with old and new fans alike loving his design.

Steff Von Schweetz, a cosplayer from Las Vegas, showed off her interpretation of Detective Pikachu at FanimeCon 2019 and uploaded photos to her Twitter account where Pokémon fans fell in love with her costume.

“THIS IS THE CUTEST THING EVER I’M DYING,” one user tweeted adoringly. “Cutest Detective Pikachu ever. Including the movie one,” another fan gushed.

It’s hard to disagree that her costume isn’t super cute, with the finest element of her Detective Pikachu outfit being the inclusion of the furry sleuth’s coffee cup – a signature running joke throughout the Nintendo 3DS game and the movie.

A Detective Pikachu game is coming to Nintendo Switch

During Pokémon’s May 28 press conference, Nintendo confirmed that a follow-up game to the 2018 Nintendo 3DS title is headed to the Switch.

Much like the movie, the original game has protagonist Tim Goodman team up with Detective Pikachu in Ryme City as they investigate crime scenes, examine evidence, and solve the mystery of Tim’s missing father.

Tsunekazu Ishihara, President and CEO of the Pokemon Company, didn’t have many details to share about the Nintendo Switch version, and simply stated that it was a “continuation of the first game” and will have a different ending to the Detective Pikachu movie.

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.
