A Final Fantasy cosplayer has delighted fans by transforming herself into Tifa Lockheart. So much so, that she's managed to get over 150,000 likes on Instagram and Reddit as a result of her efforts. 

What Does The Final Fantasy Tifa Lockheart Cosplay Look Like?

Hyoon, aka aikuros, has an eye-watering 450k+ followers on Instagram, thanks to her incredible cosplay outfits. However, it appears that her Tifa Lockheart costume has been a particularly popular post, as not only have the photos achieved 150,000 likes on Instagram alone, but also over 1,000 comments from fans. 

Her real name is Kang Hee Yoon, and she's 26 years old. According to Sidomexentertainment, her social media pages started as a place for her to sell her own art, however apparently the commission demand became so overwhelming, she decided to stop and concentrate on cosplay and other ways to express her creativity. 

She apparently also fell in love with Pokemon and anime when she was younger, which lead to her passion for art and expressing herself creatively. She's also a part-time streamer on Twitch.

Her second post in costume got another 70,000 likes, as she also thanked fans for hitting the 300k milestone (that she's since smashed) on the social media platform.

What Are Fans Saying About The Final Fantasy Tifa Lockheart Cosplay?

One fan took to the comment section to gush: "You are very beautiful and looks like exactly Tifa from the Final Fantasy VII Remake!!", another said: "No doubt, the most accurate and beautiful Tifa Lockhart I've ever seen... even better than the one from the game!" A third added: "Most accurate looking Tifa I have ever seen."

And to be fair, they're all right on the money. Hyoon absolutely killed this version of Tifa, from the hair, to the white and black crop top.
