The One-Winged-Angel has been stealing hearts for decades, and this popular cosplayer has recreated the iconic Final Fantasy villain with stunning effect.
For almost 25 years, the world of Final Fantasy VII has gripped its players, immersing them in an epic story for the very survival of a haunting, fantastical world. Every story needs a villain to drive it, and there is no doubt that Final Fantasy VII’s Sephiroth is the ultimate in dark and broody antagonists.
While many cosplayers over the years have attempted to embody this chaotic, dynamic villain it is very rare for one to come close to capturing his true essence. This week we are in awe of the work of Leon Chiro, an internationally acclaimed cosplay artist known for portraying chiseled characters to a tee. His use of makeup and wigs to carve out unrealistic features is entirely captivating. This gorgeous recreation of Sephiroth and his partnership with probably the most gripping cosplay and fantasy photographer on the planet (@EOS Andy) are so stunning that they will stay with you forever.
