Here at Otaku no Culture, I love cosplay and cosplayers, they make fandom so much more interesting. I’ve seen some wonderful costumes that’s taken the individuals hours, days or even months to perfect. Fandom has thankfully evolved for the better since my first con at Anime Expo ’95.
I would like to introduce you to Sarah Wilkinson of Red Nebula Studios aka Nightlyre on Deviant Art. Her costume of Garrus Vakarian from Mass Effect just floored me. A word hasn’t been created that best describes how totally awesome I think her costume is. I love the details not only of the armor but of the mask. The mask in the photos looks so real and one could almost believe it because Garrus’ mouth moves in conjunction with its wearer.
I’m a huge fan of the PC gaming series Mass Effect. And even with the third installment’s disappointing end it has not taken my love away from what could be some of the more interesting characters ever to be created for the PC. It’s good when someone’s raw talent such as Sarrah’s reminds me of that love.
For readers who are wanting a closer look at Sarrah’s costume, she is currently at Phoenix Comicon 13 in Phoenix, Arizona until May 26th.
