It’s probably no surprise that we here at Nerdist absolutely love fandom of any sort. And when a die-hard fan takes their love of something and applies it to other nerdy endeavors (say… combining the love of video games and cosplay) well we just can’t help but gush about it for all to see! So when something like this Euro Cosplay award-winning Pharah cosplay design from Overwatch comes along, we simply have to celebrate how awesome it is.
Created by professional gamer and cosplayer Germia from the Czech Republic, this Anubis form of Overwatch’s Pharah looks about as accurate to the game skin as anyone could get it. Not one to just look the part, Germia’s armor comes complete with servos that activate her wings and shoulder-mounted missiles making her someone we definitely wouldn’t want to be up against in combat. As purveyors of cosplay ourselves, we’re hard-pressed to find anything that isn’t spot-on to the game version. Other than, you know, functioning flight capabilities and ballistic weapons systems.
For any aspiring cosplayers out there, Germia is awesome enough to document the builds that go into her final outfits in fairly thorough detail on her Facebook page. There, you can view her galleries of this and other builds that all offer insight into how everything is put together. What really impresses us is the integration of remote controlled servos and how compact everything appears to be.
There’s not a thing, as far as we can see, that seems to be compromised in terms of form and function over fitting lights or mechanical flourishes into the designs. In our book, Germia is doing some fantastic work and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with in the future.
