bioshock cosplay - big daddy and little sister by volpin props

Graphic Artist, Harrison Krix and his fiancée, Emily had a private photoshoot in the Georgia Aquarium showcasing Harrison’s latest work, Big Daddy from the BioShock game.

This is a real costume with real LED lights, and Harrison is currently selling it on eBay, open for bidding until December 3, 2009.

You could probably win a cosplay competition with this, if he hasn’t already. You can view the rest of the photoshoot in his blog. Great work!

Fate/Unlimited Codes: Saber Lily

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

fate/unlimited codes cosplay - saber lilyLittle is known about Saber Lily, aside from the fact that she is officially another version of Saber. Fans speculate that she is quite possibly the direct opposite of Dark Saber from Fate/Hollow Ataraxia, but there is no real history behind her appearance.

None that we know of as of yet anyway.

Beautiful cosplay! Looks like it was done in a private photo shoot, since Saber Lily’s costume looks really hard to move around in. Thank you very much to Still Doll for sharing this!

Gyakuten Saiban 3: Auchi Takefumi

gyakuten saiban 3 / phoenix wright: ace attorney - trials and tribulations cosplay - auchi takefumi / winston payneThe "Rookie Killer" who enjoys mocking young attorneys to no avail, Auchi Takefumi is a prosecutor who generally starts the case strong, but if quickly demoralized when defense attorneys find holes in his evidence.

In the English version, his name is Winston Payne, which is a pun of “Wince in Pain”.

I miss playing the Gyakuten Saiban series and making Payne weep, haha! I’m still waiting for Miles’ game to come out early next year! It should prove to be very interesting to play the opposing team. But anyway, really great job on this cosplay! Thanks for sharing it!

Gundam Seed Destiny: Kira Yamato and Lacus Clyne

Monday, November 16th, 2009

gundam seed destiny cosplay - kira yaamto and lacus clyneKira was severely wounded in the war that had broken out on earth when he was brought to the Clyne Household. With the help of Lacus, her father Siegel Clyne, and their family friend Reverend Malchio, Kira recovers and they grant him safe haven in their home.

When word of the ZAFT’s forces’ plans to attack Earth Alliance base JOSH-A reaches them, Lacus provides Kira with a ZAFT uniform and helps him attain the ZGMF-X10A Freedom in order to help his friends who were still aboard Archangel. It was during this time that Lacus showed her support and affections to Kira by wishing him good fortune and giving him a kiss on the cheek.

Aren’t they cute? Admittedly, I prefer Athrun over Kira, but Kira and Lacus make a cute couple anyway! Thank you for sharing this!

Princess Tutu: Princess Tutu

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

princess tutu cosplay - princess tutuThe elegant and graceful dancer, Princess Tutu is Arima Ahiru’s alter ego who is  unselfishly in love with Prince Mytho. She is caught in a dilemma of saying her true feeling because if she is to confess to him, she will turn into a speck of light and vanish forever. Thus, she fulfills her duty and collects the shards of Mytho’s heart in order to give him true happiness.

Beautiful cosplay! I’m glad a real ballerina decided to cosplay her since I’m a huge fan of the series. I only wish there was a Rue or Mytho with her. Great job!

Sailor Moon S: Sailor Chibi Moon

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

sailor moon s cosplay - sailor chibi moonThe outgoing daughter of Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask, Sailor Chibi Moon dreams of becoming a beautiful lady one day. She is a perfectionist who prefers to do things alone so she can have her way. As the series progresses, she learns to open herself more, learning what true maturity really is.

I didn’t think anyone could get her hair to look quite that right. But I think I like her red eyes more than anything! Very convincing cosplay, and it even has Konata’s stamp of approval! Great work!
