Cosplay has grown exponentially in popularity in recent years. Comic cons all around the world allow geeks not only come together to celebrate their love of their favorite characters but to dress up as them too. However, not all cosplays are created equally.
While some fans have a knack for dressing up as certain fictional characters, there are few people who can seamlessly transform into just about any of them. One of the exceptions to this rule is Australian cosplayer Nicha, who goes by Nichameleon on Instagram.
Nicha’s Instagram name is a reference to the fact that she’s a chameleon when it comes to dressing up as her favorite characters. Her ability to transform herself into near-perfect replicas of these characters has amassed her over 187k followers the photo-sharing app.
Here are 16 of her most impressive cosplays…
1. Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins
Is that you Jennifer Lawrence?!
2. Violet Parr from The Incredibles
Nicha used bodypaint to recreate Violet’s skin-tight outfit.
3. Mera from DC Comics’ Aquaman
She really does look like a queen of the sea.
4. Harley Quinn who first appeared in the Batman series
Nicha doesn’t just dress like a superhero, she poses like one too.
Female characters often have amazing bodies in comics and on the big screen, and while there’s no doubt that Nicha is a creative woman, her ability to seamlessly transform into them is helped by her incredible physique which enables her to rock just about any look.
