A skilled cosplayer has recreated Arataki Itto from Genshin Impact, with the Geo-wielding oni going on a lovely ski trip to the Alps. miHoYo\’s action role-playing game features an ever-evolving cast of playable characters, with gamers able to unlock new heroes using a gacha vending machine system. Added to the game in December 2021, Genshin Impact\’s Arataki Itto has abilities and a unique backstory which quickly made him a fan-favorite warrior.
Added with Genshin Impact\’s 2.3 Update, Arataki Itto has the blood of a demonic oni running through his veins. The character is also the leader of a gang of societal outcasts, with its members being treated like family by their overbearing leader. In gameplay Itto uses the Geo element, which he can use to increase the damage dealt by his claymore sword attacks. Another special ability allows Itto to hurl Ushi, a member of his clan, in order to damage enemies and gain a supportive ally on the battlefield. The demonic brawler has become one of Genshin Impact\’s most popular new additions, with tributes such as a Genshin Impact chibi figure of Arataki Itto serving as touching fan-made homages.
Instagram user and skilled cosplayer taryn_cosplay recently brought Arataki Itto to life, with the beloved oni even going skiing. The skillful recreation captures every detail of the character\’s design, including his large horns and flowing white hair. Itto\’s red tattoos also stretch across taryn_cosplay\’s body, and the character\’s massive sword was built and brought along on the adventure. The masterful cosplay was worn to Genshin Impact\’s Lightning Ceremony, a real-world event held at Val Thorens ski resort in the French Alps. Musical performances and a Teleport Waypoint lighting ceremony were part of the event, and taryn_cosplay was even able to do some skiing as Arataki Itto.

Alongside their amazing recreation of Arataki Itto, taryn_cosplay has also completed other breathtaking video game cosplays. The talented creator recently revealed an astonishing cosplay of Ruined King Viego from League of Legends, complete with the undead ruler\’s glowing crown and mystical sword. Massive metal gauntlets were forged to cover the cosplayer\’s arms, and glowing contact lenses complete their terrifying transformation into an ancient wraith. Between Arataki Itto and Viego, taryn_cosplay displays an aptitude for bringing supernatural white-haired gaming characters to life.
Arataki Itto\’s design, personality and abilities have made him a beloved addition to Genshin Impact\’s roster. Now, thanks to taryn_cosplay, the rude gang leader has made the leap into the real world. With the crimson oni descendant even taking some time to ski across the Alps, the authentic cosplay no doubt attracted attention at the Lightning Ceremony.
