Why The Internet Is Great

Exciting news for every reader! Browsing Ragnar Tørnquist’s blog, I spied in the comments links to something I’d never thought might exist:

The Longest Journey Cosplay.

First there’s alvane‘s April Ryan:

Is she an elf?

And then there’s devildocry‘s Zoe Castillo:


That is all.


  1. Tony Ellis says:

    John, you totally have to stalk these ladies and marry them.

  2. DuBBle says:

    Tony’s notion could definitely work for you. It’ll be easy to go undetected in their presence: neither cosplay-April nor cosplay-Zoe have developed concepts of stealth.

  3. Masked Dave says:

    Damnit, I just fell in love.

  4. Joe says:

    I can’t think of anything funny to say, but very good. Well done internet.

  5. James Lyon says:

    I think you’ve just brightened my day.

  6. Gunblade says:

    Wow. This is the first post I have read on this blog (got linked off gamesetwatch).

    Just wow. I literally just got done installing Dreamfall: The longest Journy GOTY edition.

    Go figure. Great blog. Instant fan.

    Wow how did this get bumped to the top. :P

    Well I’m more than happy to necronomiconize it. It was written before I began avidly reading RPS and it MAKES ME HAPPY.

    …and again. This one’s not going to die.

  11. Revisit_Che's_History says:

    While the accuracy of the girl’s fitting posing as Zoe is remarkable, the April Ryan one is simply wonderful — it’s really artistic.

  12. Bobsy says:

    If any lady ever wants me to marry them, they need only do this. Seriously, I’ll be down on one knee in seconds.

  13. zanbowser says:

    Clicked the “revisit an old story” link just as “Everything You Ever” came on my player. If I weren’t already married, you could sign me up, too.

  14. Bhazor says:

    Hooray The Internet!
    Also hooray for girls that look like Zoe and emo April.

    Oh, if only I could be sure they have the personality too.
