LOOK: Viral cosplayer channels her ‘Taylor Swift’ vibes

/ 03:16 PM February 10, 2017

There have been several Taylor Swift look-alikes whose videos went viral over the past few years. One of them was Olivia Sturgess from Australia, whose “mirror-image” of the pop icon caused a stir on Instagram last May.

But the fairest Taylor Swift doppelgänger of them all is probably April Gloria, a cosplayer from Kansas, USA.  With the touch of cosmetics and Swift’s trademark red lipstick, Gloria effortlessly channels Swift.


Hordes of “Swifties” have noticed the resemblance by gazing at Gloria’s numerous selfies on her Instagram and Facebook pages. Aside from her makeup skills, others have noticed that Gloria imitated some of Swift’s wardrobe picks such as dresses and blouses.

“How is she not Taylor Swift?” one Instagram fan asked. Curious about people’s reception toward her looks, another user asked, “Omg girl, has anyone ever recognized you as Taylor in the streets?”


Aside from Swift, Gloria transforms herself into characters from anime series.
