Cosplay Wednesday – RWBY’s Yang Xiao Long

RWBY Yang Xiao Long Cosplay - Gamers Heroes
RWBY’s Ruby recently made a surprise appearance as a playable character in Arc System Works’ BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle. Though we already know she is in, we hope that Yang Xiao Long makes the cut as well. As we patiently await more news about the game, we take a look at a spot-on cosplay of the character.

Italian cosplayer Clajre Fay has been drawn to the world of cosplay for close to 10 years now. Though she typically does cosplays of video game characters, she was drawn to RWBY’s Yang Xiao Long due to how she is both rude and honest, and how she is somewhat like Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft. The end result is pretty true to the character, right down to the leather jacket and the sunglasses.
