It’s not every day that we get to feature a cosplayer who IS the character they are portraying, but this is the case with Rana McAnear. She was the face model for the actual characters of Samara and Morinth in Mass Effect.

The lady herself is flooded with neon lights in this clever studio shoot. Latex is notoriously an expert level material to master, but this cosplay is flawless in its construction. Every line and curve is clean and perfectly fitted, shown from all angles by the gorgeous lighting for this studio shoot.

The body suit base for this cosplay is incredibly unique, making for a cosplay that is both visually dynamic and easier to repeat regularly for the cosplayer. A fine balance of craft, gorgeous visuals, and practicality that makes this cosplay stand out.
