The art of cosplaying as your favourite gaming characters appears to be more popular than ever at the moment, but we doubt there are many who can say that they've cosplayed as themselves.
Joe Zieja, voice actor of Fire Emblem: Three Houses' Golden Deer leader Claude, has shared a couple of images to his personal Twitter account cosplaying his very own character. Zieja regularly interacts with fans of the game on social media, embracing the many memes that the fandom creates, so we're not surprised to see him taking on this (admittedly brilliant) cosplay attempt.
Giving credit where credit's due, here are more of the talented folk who made this happen:
We actually had a chat with the man himself last year around the time the game launched. If you missed it the first time around, make sure to watch the video below to find out how Joe landed the role, get some insight into the voice acting industry, and find out more about his time voicing characters such as Star Fox's Fox McCloud:

I am just in love with Joe. He a really cool guy and really committed to the Claude role.
Need more guys like him
Fox's voice is also very good
You versus the guy she tells you not to worry about.
@liljmoore he reminds me of Carolina Ravassa, the voice of Sombra in OW. She is also super commited to her character, not only, but also through cosplay
We don’t deserve Joe 😭
Time for a three houses Netflix series
This just warms my heart.
Very clever to reference the cosplay with a pre-timeskip pic, which is not the one that is being cosplayed.
Best voice actor imo in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, out of an incredible cast.
I think he's the best voice actor in FE:3H, go Golden Deer!
You aren't truly Claude unless you are upside-down.
Fear the Deer!!!
Was the first route I did, big golden deer 🦌 fan. Voice actor has done amazing fan interaction on social media, kudos from me 👍🏻
I'm yet to play through The Golden Deer, but someday... This Joe seems to be a cool guy.
Oh wow, his Air Force and Military background must’ve been perfect for his role as Fox!
Joe is a gift to humanity. And to the game because he does one HELL of a marketing job.
I love Joe! They could not have picked a better actor than him to play Claude! Or is Claude playing Joe? FEAR THE DEAR!!!!
Very cool. But I am gonna say it again, if this amazing cosplay was "just a fan" you'd never share it, and that's not okay.
I wish you guys would start like a weekly, or even monthly feature of fan art and cosplay. It would be awesome to let the many talented people get some time in the spotlight even when their name isn't already attached to something famous.
@Heavyarms55 Normally I'd agree, but I think this was appropriate to post because its so rare for this to happen! That and Joe is a lovely guy who does stuff like this all the time and I think its nice for NintendoLife to find an excuse to give him a shoutout!
@Wexter I don't have any problem with him getting a shout out. What I don't like is that they only have articles like this about people who are already successful for other things. It's like I said, if he were just a regular fan, instead of the VA, they'd not have featured him.
It's not like I think they should feature anyone in a cosplay. But there are countless talented people out there with mindblowing cosplays and fan art that's out of this world! And yet, their names aren't attached to anything else already, so all they can do is post their pics on social media.
How cool would it be to have a monthly "Fan art Feature"? Or "Cosplay Corner"? Personally, I think that'd be really cool. It could give talented artists a chance at a new audience and treat NL readers to some lovely art that they might not have seen before. NL could even tie it in to recently released games or series that have been in the news for whatever reason, if they wanted to make things more relevant.
Wow that hair really makes him look like Zach Braff
Claude The God
