One must be a very dedicated fandom member to pull off convincing cosplay, but every weekend, folks do so with varying degrees of success. On occasion, someone’s attention to detail and genuine love for the subject matter creates mind-blowing results. Now, a woman who goes by “Alyson Tabbitha” on Instagram has taken cosplay to a new level with several Johnny Depp transformations. No, she doesn’t do Whitey Bulger stomach crunches, but she hits some iconic Depp characters and then busts out some Star Wars greatness with additional manga and anime fun.
Tabbitha is an absolute pro at cosplay, so she pulls out all the stops. For reference purposes, this is a “normal” photo of Tabbitha when she’s not cosplayed out.
Tabbitha not only does Edward cosplay, but dresses up as Winona Ryder’s Kim character, too. Freaking amazing.

Both cosplays made and worn by me! Just finished this #kimboggs dress last night. So I did a #costest ! I was originally going to wear kim sat and eddy Sunday @ #swampcon but I'm not really feeling kim so idk. I will definitely be #edwardscissorhands though! It's nice to have a #cosplay to loan to friends when I wear my #edwardscissorhandscosplay!
When Tabbitha tackles a Jack Sparrow transformation, she looks virtually indistinguishable from Depp’s take on the character.
Here’s what she looks like halfway through the transformation.
Folks also noticed that Tabbitha looks a bit like the Elizabeth Swann Pirates character, so she obliged them with a quick makeup and wig job.
Tabbitha’s other cosplay moments are somehow even better than the Depp stuff. Here she is as Annie Leonhart/The Female Titan from the Attack on Titan manga series.
And here she is as Natalie Portman’s Padme Amidala. Not bad.
Tabitha has a few Final Fantasy characters in her arsenal of cosplay doom. She dressed up as Lighting/Claire Farron.
Tabbitha’s also got a Vincent Valentine getup at the ready.
Here’s her take on Katniss Everdeen. This isn’t nearly as successful as the other cosplay attempts, but still damn good.
