Cosplay Wednesday – Xenoblade Chronicles’ Sharla

The Xenoblade series is coming back in a big way with the upcoming release of Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition for the Nintendo Switch. In honor of this edition hitting this month, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a spot-on cosplay of the medic of the Colony 6 Defense Force, Sharla.

A veteran of the cosplay scene since 2004, cosplayer the-mirror-melts turned her sights to Xenoblade Chronicles’ Sharla in this stunning rendition. She made this costume for WCS Canada 2014, and her team came in second place. In order to create the flowers and other elements, she did her first foray into leatherworking. She stated that she learned a lot making this costume, and wants to apply it to future costumes.
