A Street Fighter Fan Is Completely Shredded For Epic Vega Cosplay
A dedicated cosplayer has achieved his dream of portraying street fighterninja Vega, obsessed with beauty.
In a series of photos from Otakon 2022, Matt Lyons (Dr_Obsidian) is seen holding several poses accentuating his muscles and costume details, with Vega’s black snake tattoo wrapped around Lyons’ torso and right arm. With or without his mask, Lyons appears confident in his transformation, which was made possible through a fitness training program aimed at inspiring people to train their way.
The costume received the Master of Ceremony’s Choice Award at Otakon, an annual three-day anime convention held in Washington, D.C. Lyons previously presented his epic Vega at Animazement 2022 in Raleigh, North Carolina and plans to reprise the character at future events.
Lyons was able to realize his dream thanks to God Body Personal Training, led by Chris Poulos and Angela Zakos. Early on in the program, Lyons cited street fighteris confident, shirtless Vega as a fitness goal. Starting with a simple at-home plan, the fitness newcomer slowly became comfortable enough to continue training in a proper gym. A year later, Lyon will appear on stage completely transformed into a masked fighter. The coaches have celebrated Lyon’s transformation on social media, expressing how proud they are of his dedication.
