Who Is Ekaterina Lisina – The 6″9 Lady Dimitrescu Cosplayer Taking the World by Storm

If you have been wondering who this 6″9 lady is who cosplays as the one and only Lady Dimitrescu from Resident Evil Village, we have some insights for you.

Whether you’re into gaming or not, you can be sure that most people have heard of Lady Dimitrescu due to her imposing  9’6″ frame. It seemed like the entire world was thirsty for this vampire mistress as soon as they set eyes on her during Resident Evil‘s Showcase trailer in January.

It also seemed like everyone and their granny wanted to cosplay as the “Tall Lady” and while some pulled off the look, Russian born Ekaterina Lisina was able to actually become the real-life Lady Dimitrescu.

Who is Ekaterina Lisina?

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.

Dylan, Lisina’s assistant in making the cosplay, said “After receiving literally hundreds upon hundreds of comments on her social media requesting her to be the character as well as seeing other tall women on TikTok cosplaying Dimitrescu, she decided it was high time that she did it herself.”

“While she’s not the canonical 9’6″ like Dimitrescu, I would say 6’9″ without heels is definitely the closest thing to the character’s height we’re ever going to get.”

As you can imagine, Lisina has also rather huge feet to hold that tall frame. Coming in at a whooping shoe size of 16 US (UK 14), she certainly gets some attention from those who have a foot fetish, and also probably a nightmare for assistants in shoe stores.

You can find out more about Ekaterina Lisina over on Instagram or if you enjoy flipping through TikTok, you can also find her there.

Resident Evil Village is set for release on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S|X on May 7, this year.
