Female Finn Cosplayer Receives Ultimate Mark of Approval From Finn Himself, John Boyega

Aside from one or two costumes for a couple conventions in the past, I don’t consider myself a cosplayer. But I can totally imagine how great a moment it is when the actor your cosplay is based on tweets how much they love you. That immense moment must be how cosplayer Ms. Victory felt when she saw that her incredible Finn cosplay was retweeted by Finn himself, John Boyega.

As you can see, he also gave probably one of the finest compliments he could give: he said he was in love. As you can imagine, Ms. Victory absolutely freaked the heck out in the best way possible.

It’s just a hell of a rush to get props from the man himself, isn’t it? Ms. Victory’s cosplay skills are absolutely tremendous. Even just a quick scroll-through of her Twitter feed shows that she’s got some serious range. Her Pocahontas cosplay is straight up fantastic. As well, we are totally down to see even more black female cosplayers being totally amazing at their craft. We are 100% here for this.

You should definitely check out her past cosplays over on her Facebook page!
