This Pyra cosplay makes us want to play Xenoblade Chronicles 2 all over again

Pyra cosplay Xenoblade Chronicles 2 cosplay

Pyra is the resident mysterious JRPG heroine of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, except she also comes with a helping of world-ending super powers. In general, she’s definitely someone you would want to be friends with. And if you’ve ever wondered what she would look like in real life, you don’t need to wonder anymore, because cosplayer HIKO has executed a picture-perfect Pyra cosplay.

This Pyra cosplay is full of appreciable details; the collar and breastplate in particular look sturdier and realer compared to other Pyra costumes. But the showstopper has to be Pyra’s sword (the Blade’s blade!). All those precise angles and jagged edges just look so freakin’ cool. Sure, it would be utterly impractical to hit someone with that thing in real life, but in the context of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, it definitely looks like a weapon that could destroy a continent or two.

We’ve covered some pretty incredible cosplay at NE recently, including a cool and sultry (and perfect) Bayonetta, a super muscular behemoth of a Robbin’ Ood from Dragon Quest, and — above all else — the most amazing Final Fantasy X cosplay we’ve ever seen. Check ’em out!

But first, let us know what you think of this cool Pyra cosplay!
