How To Draw And Cosplay Overwatch’s Characters

I remember Craig, formerly of this parish, once trying to put together a Halloween costume and stumbling down the well of messageboards where people studied screencaps of films and TV shows and tried to identify glove manufacturers, watch models, and other fine details. He would have appreciated the producers of Dexter putting out a guide as detailed as the one Blizzard have released to cosplaying…

Dote Night: Pip’s Cosplay Challenge

*deep-breaths-and-don't-think-about-how-disastrously-this-could-go-Pip* Hello Dote Nighters. This post marks the beginning of Pip's Cosplay Challenge. By that I mean I am going to do my best to create a cosplay - one which I could feasibly wear to an event and people would a) be able to recognise who I was supposed to be and b) not join this tragic lineup. The whole thing was inspired by…

Chell Is Other People: Cute Portal Cosplay

Just clearing out my phone and found some footage and shots I took at the MCM Expo last weekend. It's of a Portal cosplayer who caught my eye because she had a remote control Companion cube*, which is pretty fancy. Also, now I look again, looks a lot like a teen version of Ex-Edge Ed now-designer Margaret Robertson. Spooks! Click through for the full photo,…

Don’t Just Stand There: Stalkerfest

Sergey Galyonkin sends word that he's posted pictures from the heavily-attended Stalkerfest 2009 over on Flickr. You can check out the mass of cosplayers (reportedly around 500) and also see GSC's developer band getting up on stage top strut their stuff. For those of you down with the local language, there's also a blog account of the event here.

Buy Dawn Of War II Or The Car Gets It

As I'm already atrophying my feeble soul by posting about viral marketing, I might as well show you this too. THQ decided to build a real-life Space Marine Rhino APC to promote the upcoming Dawn of War II (on which we hope to have a Wot I Think soon-ish). If a picture speaks a thousand words, then a short video of a science-fictional tank crushing…

TaserStick Included

Kotaku spotted this awesome piece of homemade costume-craft up for sale on Ebay. It's a full Half-Life 2 Combine Metrocop outfit, which apparently even has a voicebox thing to make you sound even more like the game's grumpy evil policemen. The reason for this authenticity is that it was a prop from a short movie, "The Combine Interview", which - along with a closer look…

S.T.A.L.K.E.R In The Realities

If you're going to do cosplay, don't dress up as some manga character with a purple sash - it's too easy. If you're going to do it, do it with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Thanks to Isaiah who sent us a link to this Russian site not only of STALKER fans taking the game into the real world at Chernobyl, but also some really fantastic photography. It's well…

RPS Photojournalism(ish): Cosplay in the UK

So, yesterday I found myself in London. And, as you may have heard, there was a Guinness World Record attempt to set a record for the number of people dressed as videogame characters in one place. Since there wasn't one before, it wasn't exactly hard, but (er) a number of people (Gamespot report over eighty, but I heard both 85 and 86 bandied around) braved…

Team Fortress 2 Cosplay

You've already seen the Portal Halloween costume - now here's the Team Fortress 2 one (click pic to embiggen). Extramegoultra bonus points for actually fricking building the Heavy's gun. Big thanks to Thiefsie for sending it over. Its original source has been located here, where you'll find a bunch of other images of Janvitos and his RED chums. Update: and Thiefsie follows up his find…

PopCap And Portal, Sitting In A Tree

We received an excellent email from PopCap employee Anthony Coleman, showing us his Halloween costume. Which really is rather extraordinary. He explains, "I made this over the past few nights out of ~85 square feet of ½ inch thick foam board. It is split horizontally into an upper and lower section. I had to do this so I could get it out of my house…

PC Gamer: Cosplaying Lara

A fun piece of nonsense I wrote for PC Gamer in the current issue's Extra Life has gone online today. It's a guide to cosplaying Lara in Tomb Raider: Anniversary. In the game, I mean. I'll leave Kieron to write a guide to cosplaying as her in real life. Anyway, it's deeply silly and surprisingly fun. And yes, one of them has her in the…

Less Big Daddy, More Shirley Crabtree

Okay. We've had enough corporate evilness puncturing our happy-happy joy-joy over-excitement over the forthcoming Bioshock. Let's have something to warm our hearts as we prepare ourselves for entering an art-deco hell. (Don't worry - the second we play it, we'll start a too-cool-for-school It's-not-all-that Backlash, because that's the way we roll at Rock Paper Shotgun. We're absolute cunts.) Destructoid have been running a dress like…
