The iconic, redheaded dhampir and protagonist of the BloodRayne series (and first video game character to ever appear in an issue of Playboy), Rayne, looks ready to hunt vampires and save the world from sinister supernatural forces in the following photoset courtesy of amazing cosplayer Irine Meier (whose Triss Merigold, Diablo III Demon Hunter and Cyberpunk 2077 Ciri cosplays are also must-sees):

Not popular opinion. I really miss characters like Bloodrayne and Classic Lara Croft in video games. When I was a child I was super inspired by sexy, smart and strong women in video games and it made me want to work on myself ( physically and mentally). The truth is that I like playing games with unrealistic worlds, offering me experiences and things that I would never want in real life, including hypersexualized characters. I like games with fights and violence, but I never wanted to kill someone in real life. I looooove to look at sexy Kratos and unrealistic women from old mortal kombat games, but I never judge people by their appearance in real life. Even as an ugly teenager I never felt inadequate when looking at these hypertrophied unrealistic characters but they always have been a source of creative inspiration! #bloodrayne #cosplay #oldschool #rayne #vampire #blood #gaming #games #cosplaygirl

Don’t touch me, I bite! 😈 I wanted to talk with you about criticism on internet. Many people told me that this cosplay, Triss Merigold, Ciri and Lara Croft are not my types at all and I shouldn’t make them. I even remember how 2 years ago people sent me comments like “redhead characters don’t look good on you, try something blonde maybe, I’ve already seen a good cosplay of Triss, not sure your will be good enough” ( unfortunately this shitty criticism for some reasons is very usual and acceptable in Russian internet 🤦🏼‍♀️). Now all these costumes are my favorite ones and somehow the most popular ones 🤷🏼‍♀️ Just one more remainder for me and for you… never listen to idiots 😂 #cosplay #cosplayer #bloodrayne #oldschool #gaming #games #oldschoolgames #rayne #vampire #blood #cosplaygirl #gothic Photographer @oltaura Retouch @alicenevermind
