Russian Cosplayer Perfectly Transforms Herself Into Pop Culture’s Most Famous Ladies


Daenerys Targaryen aka Khaleesi aka Mother of Dragons (Game of Thrones)

Cosplayer and makeup artist Ilona Bugaeva inhabits a myriad of different of female characters through her impressive costumes. While many cosplayers pick a limited number of people to emulate, Bugaeva casts a wide net and models herself after Disney characters, women in Game of Thrones, as well as the iconic Princess Leia. Each figure is so convincing—and Bugaeva is such a great chameleon—that you wouldn’t know what she looks like outside of her fantasy attire.

Costumes are just part of how Bugaeva pulls off her cosplay characters. Aside from the perfectly-styled wigs and makeup, it’s also in how she acts. When posing, Bugaeva thinks about the personality of the women she’s emulating; dressing as Hermione from Harry Potter means she must look confident and self-assured, while Belle from Beauty and the Beast must look sweet and unassuming. This commitment to the characters is what takes her cosplay from being ordinary to extraordinary.
