Cosplayer Shellanin went viral on Twitter recently over her latest NieR: Automata cosplay with a twist. Instead of wearing a more canon straight-haired white wig for YoRHa No.2 Type B, Shellanin added a voluminous curly haired white wig that elevates the 2B cosplay in a totally different direction.

Seen below, you can check out the photoshoot from cosplayer Shellanin:

Shellanin took what we love about the character 2B and created a gorgeous photo shoot. As a result, capturing the originality and talent of the cosplayer. Including, 2B’s iconic black blindfold that ties the whole look together.


Shellanin uploads a lot of her photos to her Twitter and Instagram page and she also has a Patreon. What sets Shellanin apart from other cosplayers are her wigs. With each cosplay, she adds a different type of curly haired wig. Giving the character a fresh and amazing look — for instance, Overwatch’s Mercy:

Or even more off the wall, Dragon Ball favorite Vegeta:

Meanwhile, if you are digging a more traditional 2B, feel free to check out the impeccable cosplay from Shirogane-sama.

Even though NieR: Automata had 26 endings, we would love to see more of the character who became an instant favorite among players. While we don’t know much about what developer Yoko Taro is looking to do in that universe, you can always go back and replay NieR: Automata because it’s just that good. DualShockers reviewed NieR: Automata giving it a 9.0 out of 10.0, noting “2B, 9S and the rest of the cast already cut themselves a well deserved corner in” our heart.

NieR: Automata is available now on PC, PS4, and (most recently) Xbox One. If you haven’t grabbed the game yet, go ahead and grab the Game of the Yorha Edition over at Amazon now. For more curly cosplay, you can support Shellanin on Patreon.
