Borderlands 3 Cosplayer Looks Like an Absolute Badass as Maya

Borderlands 3 Cosplayer Looks Like an Absolute Badass as Maya

This talented cosplayer recreated the look of Maya from Gearbox's Borderlands 3, right down to the cel-shaded look famous to the franchise.

The Borderlands 3 official Twitter account tweeted out an amazing set of cosplay photos from cosplayer Shiva_Abarai, showcasing her as Maya from the aforementioned series. What makes this work incredible is not only how accurate the costuming and features of the characters, but how well she weaponizes makeup to create that gorgeous cel-shaded effect that the franchise is known for:

She has a Facebook account as well if you want to check out her other cosplay in a easier to view way. If you want to support her excellent work, you can either buy her cosplay prints directly through her Storenvy store or simply buy her a coffee on her Ko-fi page.

Borderlands 3 launched back on September 13th and has already has sold five million copies in five days, which means that fifty percent more consumers had purchased Borderlands 3 than the previous Borderlands 2. This news makes Borderlands 3 not only the fastest-selling title in 2K’s history, but also their highest-selling on PC in a five-day window.

In some somewhat surprising news, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford said that based on PC data that the studio had, the concurrent player numbers for the game were almost twice as high as the peak concurrent players that Borderlands 2 had ever achieved. And that number only continues to rise from there.

You can give our review a read here, and you can grab Borderlands 3 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC now. Next month will also see the title’s first free event kicking off with the Bloody Harvest event.
