Once again, we dip into the talent pool that serves the God of War community.

When it comes to boss fights in Sony Santa Monica’s God of War (2018), the Valkyries are one of the hardest to face in a battle. These cursed servants of Odin certainly give players a run for their money and even though she is the easiest of the sisters to beat in the game, she can prove to make the best of players get a sweat on.

In honour of this magnificent God of War enemy, one cosplayer decided to take on the winged creature in a fantastically intricate cosplay design.

As you may know, if you’re a God of War fan, Hildr is one of the nine corrupted Valkyries located within the labyrinth on Niflheim and although less deadly than that of the Valkyrie Queen Sigrun, Hildr’s ability to rapidly shoot ice shards at Kratos is still something you’d want to avoid at all costs.

Cosplayer Marye Le Fay who was the winner of this very outfit at the 2021 Ultimate Cosplay Championship, shows off what truly crowned her the queen. The stunning and intricate detail that has gone into her Hildr Valkyrie cosplay beggars belief. It’s not only chilling to look at with Hildr’s expressionless face but also the sheer beauty of the work that has gone into making this look as authentic as possible.

Marye states on her Instagram upon celebrating God of War‘s third anniversary back in April “3 years ago today, I bought a PS4 for @casualcowcosplay his birthday (which is today 🥳, he also took these photos in our backyard), and bought a game I’d never heard of before. And look at where we are now. Almost 4 cosplays in and I still love it. The community has so much love for each other, I love my Valkyrie sisters, all the Atreusses, Kratosses, Freyas, etc.. I’ve made so many friends through these cosplays and I’m really looking forward to meeting up again ❤️ can’t wait for what the future brings us ❤️”

God of War: Ragnarok was initially slated to release this year but has been pushed back until 2022. The title will also come out on PS4 as well as PS5.
