Say hello to Supermodel Ekaterina Lisinathe, the only Lady Dimitrescu that you’ll ever need.

Get ready for more of the Tall Lady! As we start to approach Resident Evil Village‘s release date, lots of promotional images of the vampire lady is starting to appear on buses and stores in Hong Kong getting everyone pretty excited to come face to face with the mistress.

Although we have seen plenty of Lady Dimitrescu cosplays over the last few months, nothing has come close to this incredible effort by Olympian and Supermodel Ekaterina Lisinathe as she kills it with her 6’9 frame.

Who is Ekaterina Lisinathe?

Born in Penza, Russia, Ekaterina held the Guinness World Record for having the longest legs among women. The model stands 6’9″ tall and had a long and distinguished career for the Russian national basketball team, winning an Olympic bronze medal in Beijing in 2008.

With over 600k followers on Instagram and 6 million followers on Tiktok, Ekaterina has made waves with her elegant 6’9 stature and towering demeanour that has grabbed people’s attention.

Ekaterina Lisinathe’s Lady Dimitrescu Cosplay

Not only is Ekaterina tall enough to pull off the imposing but seductive Lady Dimitrescu, she actually looks like her too. While the character of Lady Dimitrescu stands at 9’6″, and Ekaterina is “only” 6’9″, she is by far the tallest Dimitrescu cosplay we’ve ever seen!

What’s even more impressive is that the photoshoot was done solo although an entire team helped to make it possible. The gorgeous white dress was made by osqurobviously, hair and makeup by beautybyblas, photos by nikolayshlykov, photo editing by shotbyshepherd and assistance by lugovskav and themushroomxiii.

I think my favourite part is the video clip of Ekaterina reenacting that scene from the Resident Evil: Village trailer of Lady Dimitrescu talking on the phone. It’s so well done and unbelievably realistic!

Dylan, who assisted Ekaterina with this cosplay, told DualShockers that “While she isn’t a big gamer per se, she developed an interest in certain characters due to their appearance and, of course, exceptional height.”

Talking about how much hard work went into the shoot, Dylan stated it wasn’t a simple process “hiring a team to help with creating the outfit for her size (hard to find a lot of things when you’re that tall)”

“Finding a place in Los Angeles with the right atmosphere was tricky and the place we settled on had to be booked further in advance and had to sign a wide variety of waivers and agreements to use the facility.”

Dylan continues to discuss wanting to keep the element of surprise for Ekaterina’s many fans with this cosplay and how welcoming she would be if Capcom came knocking at her door.

“It was tough keeping this project airtight in secret and the temptation of wanting to let out a teaser was extremely strong, however dropping such a huge bombshell and watching her fans go crazy made it totally worth it.”

“If Capcom or the RE development team are ever looking for someone to collaborate with or be Lady Dimitrescu for them, I don’t think they need to look further.”
