Resident Evil Village’s Lady Dimitrescu has found its real-life counterpart in Olympian Yekaterina Lisina.
The 6ft 9inch athlete posted a video and photos on Instagram cosplaying the much talked about character and people are here for it. With over 30 thousand likes on the photo so far, it has been circulating the internet all day.
Though Lady Dimitrescu comes in at a whopping 9ft 6inches, Lisina is the closest you can get to perfect for her role. The height alone is staggering, but her dark hair and ivory complexion bring the vampiric character to life. Lisina is a Russian model who currently holds a Guinness World Record for the tallest professional model. She also competed for the Russian National Team in basketball in the 2008 Summer Olympics.
The Instagram post was a ploy to pull new followers to her page, she posted “Follow me and I’ll take YOU beyond your imagination….. My team: Dress: @osqurobviously Hair&makeup: @beautybyblas Photo editor: @shotbyshepherd Photo by: @nikolayshlykov My friends: @lugovskav and @themushroomxiii,” giving the team behind her stunning look credit.
