Sword Art Online Cosplay Channels Asuna's Goddess Look

Sword Art Online: Alicization might have come to an end with the final episode of the War of Underworld arc this Summer, but now one artist is channeling Asuna Yuuki's Goddess look for one stunning cosplay! The Alicization saga was the largest undertaking for the anime yet, but it was not particularly involving for Asuna. Due to Kirito being in a coma and locked within Underworld for the majority of the series, we did not get to see Asuna in action in this new virtual world until the tail end of War of Underworld's first half. It was worth the wait, however.

The Asuna that did finally make her debut in Underworld was stronger than ever thanks to her using one of three special "Goddess" accounts (with the others going to Sinon and Leafa). With this new account, Asuna achieved a new level of power as Stacia, the Goddess of Creation, and was a major factor in helping the humans continue the fight against the dark territory during War of Underworld.

The Goddess Stacia look was one of the best received by fans since her very first outfit during the Aincrad arc (which we'll see again soon), and artist @hansonge_cos (who you can find more work from on Instagram here) has channeled the full power of this goddess look with some godly cosplay of their own. Check it out:

Sword Art Online will be continuing further with its next anime outing, Sword Art Online Progressive, which will be a retelling of the original Aincrad arc that takes its time in the floors initially skipped over by series creator Reki Kawahara. This series features far more moments between Kirito and Asuna as they get to know one another, so it's definitely going to be great news for fans who had been missing seeing her in action for quite some time. Of course, then we'll have to see what's coming for the future of the franchise overall.

What did you think of Asuna Yuuki's Goddess Stacia look during Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld? Where does it rank among your favorite looks for the heroine overall?

History of Art Timeline

The historical past of art is usually told as a chronology of masterpieces created during each civilization. It can thus be framed as a narrative of high culture, epitomized by the Wonders of the World. On any other hand, vernacular art expressions can even be integrated into art historic narratives, called folk arts or craft. The more intently that an art historian engages with these latter sorts of low culture, the much more likely it is that they will determine their work as analyzing visual culture or cloth culture, or as contributing to fields associated with art historical past, akin to anthropology or archaeology. In the latter cases, art gadgets may be called archeological artifacts. Surviving art from this era comprises small carvings in stone or bone and cave painting. The first traces of human-made gadgets appeared in southern Africa, the Western Mediterranean, Central and Eastern Europe Adriatic Sea, Siberia Baikal Lake, India, and Australia. These first traces are generall

‘A boiling point’: UC Berkeley art community calls for institutional change

Amid ongoing national unrest, college communities continue to call for change by challenging institutional practices, racism and social justice issues. Over the past few months, the UC Berkeley art community has questioned the responses and actions of campus administration. In a letter sent to the faculty and administrators of UC Berkeley's Department of Art Practice in June, alumni and students demanded acknowledgment of the Black Lives Matter movement and a commitment to remove white supremacy from art institutions, among other demands. "There is a heavy hypocrisy in the silence and inaction of institutions that pride themselves on values of inclusivity and diversity, claim to prioritize marginalized voices, and borrow from radical decolonial practices of BIPOC," the letter states. During the same month, senior faculty from the department responded with a letter stating their support for the Black Lives Matter movement and their commitment to reparative work wit

Bob Gibson was not just best pitcher of modern era, but during time of strife, mastered the art of fear

For a lot of successful athletes, winning in competition is about winning their own internal battles between anger and fear. One can be generated by the other. One can also be erased by the other. Those who effectively use anger, even if they must fabricate it, can overcome their fear and simultaneously instill it within the opponent. This statement covers a lot of competitors and a lot of time, so I don't issue it carelessly. But in all my years, I've never seen an athlete channel fear in the opposition more effectively than Bob Gibson. He was the young Mike Tyson of baseball, way before Iron Mike. And unlike him, Gibson didn't flame out in his prime. He was not only the best in the business during a 5-year span in the mid-'60s (1964-68), he won his second Cy Young in 1970 at age 31 and threw a no-hitter the next year against the best hitting lineup – and it turned out, best team – in baseball that season, the 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates. I saw an old fan on
