Resident Evil Village is over 2 weeks away from it's release date and the hype for the game only grows as we edge closer to May 7th. Cosplayer Yaya Han is certainly adding to our excitement as she has partnered with Capcom to create her own incredible Lady Dimitrescu cosplay.
Yaya Han built the entire cosplay in a week after Capcom asked for her to make the already-iconic vampire from the new game. Lady Dimitrescu has already been popular with cosplayers since her reveal in January (with some putting together closet cosplays while at home), and it's great to see that Yaya Han joined in the hype.
When @RE_Games asks you to cosplay their tall vampire lady, you make the costume in 1 week, build a photo set & do an all day photo/video session for her!— Yaya Han (@YayaHan) April 17, 2021

If you're wanting to see exactly how Yaya Han created the cosplay, do not fret. She put together an entire tutorial on her YouTube channel. The video includes an introduction to the character (fun fact: the 'U' in Dimitrescu is silent!), followed by a dress tutorial, how to assemble the accessories, wig styling, crafting her blade gloves, and finally her reveal. You can check out the whole video below.
What's also amazing in the photoshoot is that Yaya Han built her entire set as well! You can see below her entire set progress from where it started to the finished product before the shoot.

We absolutely love seeing Yaya Han cosplay as Lady Dimitrescu and cannot wait to see more and more cosplayers become this character in the future. Be sure to check out Yaya Han on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube to see all the incredible photos and videos from this shoot!
Resident Evil Village comes out May 7th on both PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
