Cyberpunk 2077 has inspired several cosplayers to deck up and make a fashion statement with their futuristic costumes.
While the game has been criticized by several, Cyberpunk 2077 stands as one of the most aesthetic pleasing games of all time. The visual pleasure that players derive from Cyberpunk 2077 cannot be matched by any game in the industry right now.
CDPR hosted a cosplay event just for their community, and cosplayers from all around the globe submitted their entries. Some of the best cosplay designs look like they've come straight out of Night City.
The best cosplayers in Cyberpunk 2077 Cosplay Contest
CDPR announced the finalists of the Cyberpunk 2077 cosplay on December 18th. Following this, several cosplayers posted their pictures on social media, and some of them even shared their design process.
The twelve finalists that are selected will then compete in the grand finale. These contestants will fight for the grand prize of $15K and a professional magazine-cover photoshoot.
The finalists for the Cyberpunk 2077 Cosplay Contest:
#1. Ketrin as V
From the razor design on the shaved portion of her hair to the neon blue lights on the standup collar. Ketrin's cosplay turns fiction into fact.
#2. Lady Lunacy as V
Extra points for the hair. On closer inspection, there's a nice fade from purple at the root to streaks of fluorescent green. The dog tag is a fun addition.
#3. Lola Zieta as V
Zieta takes it a step further with some cyberwear installed onto the arms. The eye makeup helps create an intimidating presence.
#4. Stepanovz as Royce
The red eye optical mods and the beard are perfect. Royce is a psychopath and Stepanovz doesn't leave any room for doubt.
#5. Tingilya as Dum Dum
Even the skin looks manufactured. Tingilya's Dum Dum gives this minor character some much-needed attention.
#6. Larry Hastings as Royce
Larry Hastings' version of Royce looks calculating and cold. Extra points for the beautiful chequered scarf.
#7. Props It Yourself as Trauma Team Soldier
Props It Yourself's perfected the look. However, if he's going to win the contest, it's going to be cause of how similar his stance is to an actual Trauma Team Soldier.
#8. Yugoro as Chromanticore model
Yugoro brings this poster from the advertisements into life. All of the contratsing colours that define the cyberpunk genre can be found here.
#9. Anna Ormeli as Lizzy Wizzy
From the steely exterior to the haunting blue eyes. It's hard to fathom just how much work went into this.
#10. Selina Engel as Entropism
Entropism is an aesthteic in itself, as opposed to a character. Selina Engel personifies the 'necessity over style' aesthetic flawlessly.
#11. Andy Valentine as V
The only male V on the list. Andy Valnetine's cosplay brings a slight more humane touch to this dystopian setting.
#12. Kody as Johnny Silverhand
Kody's cosplay as Johnny Silverhand would make Keanu Reeves proud. Kody looks like a rockstar from the '70s that's been transported to the world of Night City.
The best Cyberpunk 2077 cosplayers on social media
Cosplaying Cyberpunk 2077 is not just about neon lights and gaudy apparel. The costume design in Cyberpunk 2077 is nuanced and defines the particular traits of a character in-game. Whether it's a loyal Nomad or a ruthless Corpo, Cyberpunk 2077 offers a range of ideas for cosplayers.
Following the contest, cosplayers and fans started posting some of their ideas on social media. Some of the cosplay photos posted on Reddit hinted at alternate endings for these characters in Cyberpunk 2077. Most of these costumes took a long time to design, and the make-up only adds to the illusion.
Cosplayer u/Dryoma_Anastasiya posted a picture in a tank top with rose tattoos and a side-shaved hairstyle that looked exactly like Judy Alvarez from Cyberpunk 2077.
Similarly, u/Sawakate posted a cosplay photo of herself draped in a classic black Corpo suit with black leather gloves. She dressed up like Meredith Stout from Cyberpunk 2077. The highlight of this design was definitely the dimly lit Corpo tag on the suit.
The following Cyberpunk 2077 cosplay ideas on Twitter deserve an honorable mention in this list.
