Russian cosplayer Anna Moleva’s turn as Elisabeth from Bioshock Infinite was so convincing, she became the canonical face of the character, featured on the box art, in print and television ads, and selected personal appearances. But Elisabeth isn’t the only character Moleva has made her own.
She won 100,000 rubles as Russia’s Miss Gamer 2012 for her portrayal of FemShep from Mass Effect 3 (cursed be its name), and returned the next year as a judge for the contest.
And, though I can’t find any record of her winning a job or large amounts of foreign currency for this cosplay, her role as Wonder Woman from Injustice: Gods Among Us is nonetheless very well done.
And that’s not all. She’s also done two different versions of Batman’s foe Poison Ivy, April the reporter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Alice from Madness Returns, and many, many others. You can catch a (partial) gallery of her many cosplays At The Link!
