Stunning cosplayer can transform herself into literally any character from film & TV
In recent years, cosplay has grown exponentially in popularity. Forget just dressing up in a trash bag and witches' hat for Halloween as a kid, now us grownups can get in on the action all year round, with Comic Cons (and, of course, the internet) providing the perfect opportunity for to fans to dress up as their favorite characters.
But not all cosplayers are created equally. While some can transform themselves into one or two characters, it's rare for anyone to be able to transform themselves into multiple and slay each and every time. One of the exceptions to this rule, however, is 23-year-old Fine Arts major Unique Sora, who's looking to get her name out there for a very important reason.
"I'm a queer black/PoC cosplayer and in recent events, I had people reposting my cosplay photos without asking," Unique said. "[They] edit and lighten my skin. I think it's so important to share other black cosplayers and let people know."
1. Domino from Deadpool 2
I literally can't tell them apart.
2. Nani from Lilo & Stitch
If they ever remake the story as a live action movie, Unique should be first in line to play Nani.
3. Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
This woman is a witch with a makeup brush.
4. Princess 'Kida' Kidagakash from Atlantis: The Lost Empire
She's not only nailed the look, she's nailed the pose too.
5. Manda Panda from Dream Daddy
You know you're a cosplay genius if you can make yourself look like you've wandered out of an animated movie.
6. Storm from X-Men
Now that's what I call fierce.
7. Spinelli from Recess: School's Out
Petition to start a GoFundMe for a live-action remake of Recess?
8. Missandei from Game of Thrones
Unique could easily be Nathalie Emmanuel's stunt double.
9. Chel From The Road to El Dorado
Those eyebrows are on point.
10. Chloe Frazer from Uncharted
The only thing she's missing are the tattoos.
11. Roxanne from A Goofy Movie
Roxanne was cute as an animation and she's even cuter in real life.
12. Black Rose From .hack
This really is every nerd's wet dream.
13. Marceline the Vampire Queen from Adventure Time
You know you've got skills when you can literally turn yourself into a member of the undead.
14. Reggie Rocket from Rocket Power
This is the only one of Unique's cosplays I've got a critique of - I reckon it would have been better if her hair was in dreadlocks.
15. Yoruichi from Bleach
How on Earth did she manage to get her eyes to look so anime-like?!
16. Princess Jasmine from Aladdin
Unique absolutely nailed Jasmine's hair.

17. Urd from Oh My Goddess!
Proof that with enough creativity, you can cosplay as even the trickiest of characters.
18. Chel from The Road to El Dorado
"But where was she keeping them??"
19. Kuki from Kids Next Door
Sometimes simplicity is the key to a great cosplay.
20. Lance from Voltron
Ah, the king of pickup lines himself. "Are you from outer space? Because your body is out of this world."
Now, writing as a lady, I think I'll be looking to Unique for inspiration this Halloween - or whenever Comic Con rolls into town again. If you'd like to keep up with this seriously talented cosplayer on social media, you can follow her on Instagram.
