During Day One of Smash Ultimate Summit 2, legendary Peach player Ezra ‘Samsora’ Morris showed up in an incredible cosplay based on his main. 

The 21-year-old eUnited player posted his crossplay to Twitter with the caption “A new princess in town,” and credited cosplayer and model Annjelife for doing his makeup. 

Along with the dress, shoes and nylons, Samsora or “Samantha” also came equipped with accessories including a crown, and umbrella to amplify the character. After all, the star player knows Peach inside and out. 

The Shine 2019 champion didn’t just wear the outfit for fun either, because he also performed at Smash Summit’s “Talent Show” where numerous pros showed off bizarre talents to great comedic effect. For Samora, he performed a catwalk and even included some taunts the fighter does in-game as part of his act.

Unfortunately, the performance ended a bit too earlier for some of the judges leaving them wanting more after Samsora walked off stage. That didn’t hurt his score though, as commentator Zak ‘Coney’ Zeeks had quite the comment about Samsora’s show. 

“I was enthralled and enchanted, and there’s a reason I have a pillow on my lap right now,” he joked. “That’s a ten out of ten for me.”

While Samsora may have impressed, Twitch chat ultimately voted Samuel ‘Dabuz’ Buzby the winner of the competition for his juggling “skills”.  

Additionally, it doesn’t seem like Samsora has any intent to bring the Samantha personality back for another run. In a tweet, the Peach God seemed to fatally self-destruct his alter ego and wrote “RIP 2019-2019.” 

It may be for the best, however, as trying to be both the world’s best Peach player and cosplayer could be a difficult task. The Smash pro has been rising in the ranks due to his impressive results at tournaments. 

Most notably, at Shine, the Peach icon shocked the world by defeating the world’s best player overall Leonardo ‘MKLeo’ Lopez Perez who was coming off wins at EVO and Super Smash Con. 

It will be fun to see how Samsora performs at the all-star stacked Ultimate Summit competition running from October 24 – October 27.

World of Warcraft has inspired a whole collection of amazing cosplays, but one cosplayer truly brings WoW into reality with her amazing Kyrestia cosplay. 

When it comes to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft universe, there are limitless possibilities to create amazing cosplays. The huge array of iconic characters, coupled with the impressive customization for your own hero or villain, makes the title perfect for passionate fans.

We recently saw cosplayer Cinderys create an amazing Sylvanas cosplay just in time for the release of Shadowlands, which in turn managed to score her Blizzard’s seal of approval.

This time around the subject of this amazing cosplay is Sylvanas’ polar opposite, Kyrestia the Firstborne, the ruler of Bastion.

Kyrestia has become one of The Ascended’s most iconic faces.

Cosplayer ascends as Kyrestia

2021 has brought with it a lot of insane cosplays, but this one is certainly one of the most memorable so far.

Artist PlexiCosplay (Plexi) has outdone herself with this beautiful transformation. Having painted herself aqua from head to toe, she can be seen adorned in Kyrestia’s iconic white and gold outfit whilst channeling the Ascended queen’s angelic nature.

What your eyes are immediately drawn to are the wings though. Mirroring the sky blue of her skin, their construction is perfect. Tipped with gold trims that tie in with her vestments and stunning recreation of the warrior’s crown, Plexi literally is Kyrestia.

WoW fans are stunned

Considering the wings are, according the Plexi, “15 feet long,” it’s safe to say that fans can’t miss this cosplay.

It’s the wings that have really gotten attention. One fan’s hilarious comment simply wrote: “the wind: I’m about to end this woman’s whole career,” to which Plexi responded “YOU NAILED IT.”

Another respondent was equally as humorous, writing “Kyrestia flight 77 you are cleared for takeoff, proceed to runway 4.”

All of these comments though praised this amazing cosplay, with one comment summing it up: “This blew my mind!!! I thought someone cropped the Archon out and pasted her onto some road!”

It’s safe to say that Plexi has truly embodied the fan favorite Ascended. She’s not only radiant, but emits a ‘don’t mess with me’ aura. We can’t wait to see her next WoW cosplay, as if she keeps going like she’ll be the queen of not just Bastion, but the WoW cosplay scene in no time!
