When cosplay is done
right it can be awesome; but when it’s done perfectly, it can be damn near
magical. That’s likely the best way to describe the BioShock cosplay that took
place at Dragon*Con’s “Night at Georgia Aquarium” last week, where group of
Irrational staff members took to the aquarium looking for BioShock cosplayers.
Saying they “hit the jackpot” would be an understatement.
Beyond your typical
assortment of splicers in bloody masquerade masks, guys dressed like Andrew
Ryan, and people carrying around NECA’s EVE Hypos and other pre-made props, several dedicated fans created their own
Big Daddy, Big Sister, and Little Sister outfits with awesome results. With the
help of a professional photographer, Irrational took advantage of the
atmospheric aquarium to take some fantastic pictures of the talented, dedicated
cosplayers in action, and if you didn’t think that you wanted to see a
big-budget BioShock movie before, these images will surely push you over the
As a bonus, Irrational also posted a video of a
little girl dressed as a Little Sister singing the “Mr. Bubbles” song, which is
perfect for anyone who never, ever, ever wants to sleep again. Be warned: it’s
as creepy as it sounds, if not more. Check that video out and some of our
favorite photos from the event in our gallery below. You can see a complete
selection of photos on Irrational Games’ blog.
