Following the one-year anniversary of Genshin Impact, cosplayer and streamer Yashafluff rounds up her stunningly detailed cosplays.

Despite a rough beginning to its anniversary celebrations, Genshin Impact continues to be an immensely popular RPG, garnering more and more players every month. Overall, a large part of its popularity is certainly due to its roster of vibrant and magical characters, which themselves have inspired a whole host of cosplays.

Now, one particular streamer and cosplayer has taken it the extra mile – Yashafluff stuns in not just one costume, but in five beautiful cosplays. From the wigs to the makeup to the outfits themselves, she truly transforms herself into a picture-perfect real-life version of these Genshin Impact characters.

A student currently in school for her doctorate, Yashafluff has somehow balanced difficult medical work with meticulous cosplay crafting. Her work, photographed by cosplay photographer @haptu, is nothing short of gorgeous and shows that she’s a true cosplay chameleon.

First, she perfectly encapsulates Ganyu, the emissary and secretary for the Liyue Qixing. Her big pale purple eyes and soft Asian-style eye-makeup showcases the same sweetness of the character. Following that, she’s even found the real-life equivalent of the character’s favorite food, Qingxin flowers, bringing the full picture together.

Additionally, she’s brought Mona, the witchy astrologist, to life. This time, her cosplay blends the soft fabric of Mona’s hat with the more structured armored bodice. Crafting something so fitted is a true costume construction feat, and she’s executed it to practical perfection.

Along with Xiao, she’s also styled and crafted cosplays for Ningguang and Keqing. To no one’s surprise, these are equally as transformative as her previous work. These photos show off her ability to not just capture the style of the character, but also their attitudes, which is what truly takes these cosplays to the next level.


Though, Genshin‘s female characters aren’t the only ones she’s cosplayed. Just recently, Yashafluff posted her Xiao recreation to Instagram. Other than the pure detail involved to style the hair, she’s most impressively used makeup to make her face appear more masculine for the character.

Additionally, the giant jade spear, crafted by @lumlionel on Instagram, adds just the right amount of magic to the overall look. She looks powerful and strong, and straight out of Liyue’s scenery.

Though she’s had a recent focus on Genshin Impact characters, Yashafluff has several other beautiful cosplays on her Instagram. From Nier: Automata‘s 2B to League of Legend‘s Ahri, she proves she’s got a cosplay for any kind of video game fan.

All in all, fans looking to explore the world and characters of Genshin Impact can do so on PC, PS4, PS5, iOS, Android, and soon to Switch.
