Considering the fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 is as popular as it is, it's surprising there aren't many more cosplays floating about. The setting and character design make it less difficult a subject than, say, Warcraft or Destiny with its armor design. And yet, when compared to other games less popular, Red Dead Redemption 2 cosplays are just hard to come by.
That makes this fantastic Sadie Adler cosplay all the more appreciatable.
Skunk, a cosplayer and part of the Skunk & Weasel duo, recently created a costume based on Sadie Adler. Sadie is one of the more prominent characters in Red Dead Redemption 2, and a central member of the Van Der Linde gang - even though she joins up at the beginning of the game.

We'll avoid spoilers, but players who have finished the game know how much of an impact she has on the story. This makes it logical for her to be among the first high-profile cosplays to appear, though we're surprised Arthur Morgan or Dutch Van Der Linde himself weren't done sooner.
The cosplay, complete with her iconic scarf, cowboy hat and even her typical hairdo certainly do the character justice. Speaking of Dutch, the other member of this cosplaying pair - Weasel - is working on a cosplay of the gang leader. Skunk got ready with her Sadie getup earlier, which is why we got some sneak-peek shots, but the team-up will be the real deal.
Some Sadie Again? Yes ? This Lady is love. really. like Kassandra or Aloy. #RockstarGames @RockstarGames #cosplay #sadieadler #reddeadredemption photo taken by @FatalFranPhoto @frostshattered thanks! pic.twitter.com/a2NEPoBnr8

If this outfit is anything to go by, Dutch will be impeccable as well, and we can't wait for the two to appear together on images. Hopefully such a quality outing will kickstart some more Red Dead Redemption 2 cosplays. After all, the game is filled to the brim with characters worth cosplaying, be they friends and allies or enemies of Arthur and the player.
