I’m not the biggest fan of cosplay, but when a cosplayer does it well it feels like something I’m morally obligated to write about, like this cosplayer whose image was posted via Redditor karabatic33 which shortly after went viral. It’s pretty clear why though, the makeup skill is completely on point, not to mention, she looks like a near-perfect living replica of Elizabeth from BioShock: Infinite.
Apparently, the cosplayer is called Ilona Bugaeva and she’s a professional Russian make-up artist whose actually pretty popular in the cosplay scene, replicating characters from The Witcher 3, Frozen and Suicide Squad. If you are curious to see all the characters re-created by Ilona here’s check out her Instagram @sladkoslava.
Fancy a trip down memory lane? Give BioShock: The Collection a shot.
What was the Bioshock series all about? The first game took the player to the underwater city of Rapture, a utopia in ruins after the people succumbed to greed and addiction to plasmids (biological superpowers). Andrew Ryan was a genius and visionary that fell to insanity, and the player is one of his experiments. Bioshock 2 took players back into the city ten years later, with the disarray being even more intense. A “Little Sister” of Rapture grows up and rallies the remnants of Rapture, and the player is somehow connected to this radical leader. Bioshock Infinite soared into the skies of Columbia, where alternate realities and universes mesh together.
Bioshock: The Collection is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox On.
